Start Your Audio Meeting Quicker than Ever

Today, ReadyTalk will release an enhancement to it's web-based audio controls. As a ReadyTalk chairperson, you can now use the audio controls to start an audio meeting with the click of a button.


 


 


Who is it for?


This enhancement drastically decreases the amount of time it takes you to start your audio meeting. With this feature you now have even more of a reason to use the ReadyTalk  Web Conference Controls to manage your audio meetings.Audio Quick Start will work for any On-Demand audio conference (less than 150 participants) and for any ReadyTalk subscriber. It is available in the audio controls section of the ReadyTalk Conference Controls every time you log in.


To start an audio conference with ReadyTalk Audio Quick Start:

 

 


  1. Click the Start My Audio Meeting button. This displays the Call My Phone dialog.

  2. Enter the phone number of the phone you will be using for the audio conference, beginning with the area code. Enter only numbers; spaces and special characters are ignored.

  3. If you are outside the U.S. or Canada, choose the country where you are located from the drop-down list.

  4. Click the Call My Phone button. In addition to adding a new number, Audio Quick Start will remember the last 10 numbers dialed and display those for selection. When your phone rings, answer it and follow the verbal prompts to join and start the audio conference.

Am I correct when I assume that there is not a way to use this shortcut if your phone access goes through a switchboard that is answered by a person. They connect the call to the correct extension. I could not think of any way around that. Thanks Debbie

Hi Debbie Yes that is correct, unfortunately extensions are not supported through Audio Quick Start. Thanks for the comment. -Paul

I've been using this for a little over a month and it been very useful. I use it a lot of different conference numbers for web and I like how my number shows in any conference controls that I log into from multiple computers.
