Enter or leave a sub-conference

During an audio conference, your host can start a sub-conference for more private communication. A sub-conference is like a separate breakout room, where only people in the sub-conference hear each other.

On your phone

If you are on your desk or mobile phone, use the telephone keypad (star) commands.

To join and leave a sub-conference:

After the sub-conference is active, your host will give you the number of the sub-conference.

  • Press # (pound) followed by the number of the sub-conference “room” you want to enter. For example, press #1 to go to sub-conference 1.
  • Press the pound key two times (# #) to go back to the main conference.

Audio Controls

After your host starts a sub-conference, the Sub-Conference panel is displayed.

  • To join: in the Participants panel point to your own name, click the Settings (gear) button, and then click Move to Sub-Conference.
  • To leave: in the Sub-Conference panel point to your own name, click the Settings (gear) button, and then click Move to Conference.
