Keeping your conference call a positive experience for all parties can be a little tricky, but FreeConference.com offers tools to make everything run more smoothly. Check out these tips for a more productive conference call:
Use Moderator Controls
Keep your participants muted for as much of the call as possible. The call Organizer can mute the other parties by pressing *7, which is a three-position toggle in this order: Conversation Mode, Q-and-A Mode, Presentation Mode and Conversation Mode. A voice prompt will alert you to the current mode each time you change the configuration. Proactively muting the conference through the use of Organizer controls is generally more effective than asking callers to mute their own lines.
