Visit the ReadyTalk blog every Friday to learn more about a ReadyTalk feature.  

Why use this feature?

When you have an important meeting, you probably need as few interruptions as possible. A quick and easy method to do so is to turn off entry announcements. That way, when a participant joins or exits your call, you will not receive any notifications therefore helping minimize any unnecessary interruptions.

How to use this feature:
In the audio controls on a web meeting:

 

  • Start your web and audio meeting

Options button

  • On the top tool bar, select the Options button
  • Click the audio tab

conference options

  • Under the Entry Announcement Section select the Silent radio button option. Click Ok.
  • You will hear a prompt that says“ When participants join and leave your conference, you will hear silence” therefore you know this is enabled
  • To reverse the silent entry, go back into the Audio tab and change the setting as you see fit.

On the phone:

  • Start your audio conference
  • Hit *3 on your audio line
  • This will default to the announcer telling you the setting of the entry announcement
  • If you would like to change the entry announcement from the default setting, just follow the prompts.
