Technical tips

Can’t install the conference plug-in? Look to the bottom of your screen for a temporary connection link.

Can’t see the conference video? Video will cease if your available bandwidth is too low – if possible, switch to a wired connection with adequate bandwidth. If that’s not possible, rest assured that non-video content will still be available to you, and video will resume if your bandwidth improves.

Scheduling FAQs

What is a Comm Line?

A teleconference – separate from the main conference and private speaker line – that enables real-time coordination between conference organizers and A/V staff onsite and the Event Producer.

What is a Private Speaker Line?

A separate, private pre-conference for speakers and the Event Producer to discuss call logistics and conduct audio checks. Standard audio entry for speakers is 15 minutes and standard web entry is 30 minutes prior to start time.

How many speakers can join the Private Speaker Line?

You can have as many as needed, but keep in mind that all speaker’s lines will be open for the duration of the call.

Where do I find the Host Code?

Event Services is always the Host – so you will never receive a Host Code. All speakers will join as participants – most often on the private speaker line.

What is a Conference Monitor?

Yes, select “Conference Monitor” to receive a link to access the web-based view of the audio conference, attendees and question queue, as well as the means to communicate by chat with the Event Producer.

Can I request a series of calls?

Check the “Regular Recurring” or “Custom Recurring” checkbox to include a schedule for the additional events

Can I request a recurring access code for my series?

Recurring Access codes are used when you need to provide the same access code for multiple events (usually a series).  Request in the special instructions.

Can I customize attendee IDs for a controlled access call?

Yes, please specify request in the special instructions that you require customized attendee ID’s.
