Puffin active speaker

 

There is no bigger faux pas in the business world than calling someone by the wrong name. This is particularly offensive when the mislabeled party happens to be a longstanding employee or important stakeholder. Now, it’s one thing to avoid doing it when your face to face with the person, but when you’re on a conference call with numerous people, it can be downright impossible. Virtual brainstorming sessions, disputes over a project’s direction, and intense Q&As can be cause for pandemonium. Did Julie volunteer that solution or was that Emily speaking?

Recurring Calls Feature

free conference calls on mobileWhen an organization hits its stride it’s vital to maintain its momentum. Touching base with your team at regular intervals, creates an environment of support that allows employees to flourish. This consistent interaction is even more important when you’re working with a remote team. You don’t have daily water cooler chitchats or birthday cakes in the lounge to bond over. In order to create an inclusive working culture, you have to ensure everyone on the team maintains regular contact with one another.

Thankfully, FreeConference has made it easier than ever to keep your remote team connected and bonding. FreeConference’s Recurring Calls feature provides you with the ability to schedule recurring calls in bulk. Setting up a recurring call is easy; once you’ve signed into your FreeConference account, simply click the “call later” button. From there you will be guided through a series of steps that will allow you to select a date and time for the call, as well as the frequency of recurrence. As always, you will also be given the option to name the call, set an agenda, and select the participants you would like to include.

Introducing: Text Chat

Have you ever been watching a presentation and had an idea or question pop into your head? You know it would be relevant to the group and the speaker doesn’t seem to be addressing it, but you hold off – you don’t want to be rude. You have to wait for the question period, but it’s miles away. You repeat the question silently, willing yourself to remember. Finally, your raised hand is answered. You open your mouth to find the thought gone and the context from which it was hatched obliterated from your memory. Not only did you miss out on wowing your boss with your insightful question, you and the rest of your team never got that potentially helpful answer.
