How to make a conference call on the 3CX web client

How do you get all your employees on board for a quick meeting even if they are all in different locations? With the 3CX Client you can easily create, schedule, manage, and join ad-hoc conference calls (conference calls that initiate immediately without scheduling from your desktop or laptop computer.)

Creating an Ad-Hoc Conference Call

With the 3CX Client, you have the ability to create ad-hoc conference calls. However, You cannot start a conference call if you haven’t picked up the call first. You have to pick up the incoming call before the option of starting a conference call is given to you.

  1.       Click on the “Conference” button and “Create Conference.”
  2.       Select the “Audio only” button

  5.       Click “Start Now” to start the conference. The call will be initiated and the participants will connect
