Your conference system is now created. Please note: a conference system cannot be changed or removed as long as there are still fixed rooms assigned to it or a conference is still in progress.

Create conference rooms

The administrator can configure fixed conference rooms or users can create temporary conference rooms themselves:

Fixed conference rooms

Fixed conference rooms are protected by an access PIN that never changes. This PIN should be communicated to the employees using the fixed conference rooms. Appointments for fixed conference rooms should be coordinated to avoid it being occupied twice.

The administrator appoints a conference manager to the fixed conference room, which is responsible for opening and closing the room. This can be a single user or a user group.

To create a fixed conference room, follow the steps below:

  1. Surf to http://192.168.99.254/ or to the IP address for access to your Forum communication system. If you don't know it, enter *128 on a system phone.
  2. Log in with the username Administrator and your password. Upon first use, leave the password field empty.
  3. Click Configurator, Applications, Forum Conference and Rooms.
  4. Click New to create a new conference room. To modify an existing conference room, just click on the name of the conference room.
  5. Enter the settings:
    • Status: when activated, the conference room is opened. Participants can only join the conference room when it is opened. Rooms can also be opened or closed in the Forum CTI application.
    • Name: choose a name for your conference room (up to 20 characters long).
    • System: select the conference system that is assigned to this room.
    • User: select a user who will be the conference manager for this room.
    • User group: select a user group in addition to a single conference manager. The conference manager does not need to be a member of this group. All user group members can initiate conferences in this room.
    • Maximum size: determine the maximum number of participants for this room. 0 represents an unlimited number of participants, but is not recommended if you want to reserve voice channels for other conferences.
    • PIN: the system automatically generates one PIN per language which is the same for all participants, which you can change.
    • Welcome track: select the welcome message that should be played when a participant enters the room.
  6. Click on Apply.

Your fixed conference room is now created.

Temporary conference rooms

When a user creates a conference invitation in the Forum CTI application, a temporary conference room is created. The communication system generates a PIN for each individual user which is no longer valid when the conference date has expired.

The user who created the invitation is the conference manager. A temporary conference room is automatically opened and closed. The participants of the temporary conference room receive a calendar invitation (in Outlook and ICS format) with the required information (dial-in number, date and time and their individual access PIN) and an e-mail reminder when a conference has started, finished or cancelled.

To create a temporary conference room:

  1. Surf to http://ip-address/app-cti.asp and replace ip-address by the IP address of your Forum communication system. If you don't know it, enter *128 on a system phone. For example, if the IP address of your Forum communication system is 192.168.99.254, you type http://192.168.99.254/app-cti.asp in your browser.
  2. Enter your username and password and click Login.
  3. Click on Forum CTI.
  4. Click on the Forum Conference tab and select Invitations from the dropdown menu next to Forum Conference.
  5. Click the Add invitation button and fill out the fields:
    • Subject: enter the conference theme.
    • Language of conference: enter the language in which the conference will be held.
    • System: select a conference system from the list (if multiple are configured by your administrator).
    • Begin and End: select the timeslot for your conference.
    • Opened before begin: specify the number of minutes the conference room should be opened before the conference start.
    • Language for invitation e-mail: select the language in which the invitation e-mail should be sent.
    • Recording: check this option if you want the conference to be recorded.
  6. Click on Apply.
  7. Click the Add participant button and fill out the fields:
    • Name: enter the name of the participant. The system proposes participants from the user list, internal phone book or on an LDAP server. If the participant is recognized, the e-mail address is added automatically.
    • E-mail: enter the e-mail address of the participant (if needed). Seperate several e-mail addresses by comma or semicolon and without spaces.
    • System: select a conference system from the list (if multiple are configured by your administrator).
    • Language for announcements: select the language for the audio menu in which the participant will be guided.
    • Just listen: when activated, the participant is muted during the conference (e.g. for webinars).
  8. Click on Apply.

To remove participants, press the Remove participant button. To modify a conference, just double-click the conference and follow the steps above. To cancel a conference, press the Cancel conference button.

The messaging portal allows you to access and manage your call log, instant messages and voice messages. When there is a new event, the message button blinks blue.

To enable or disable password protection, follow the steps below:

  1. Press the button.
  2. Choose Configure.
  3. Choose Authentication.
  4. Enter your personal password.
  5. Set authentication to on or off:
    • On: the password is always required.

To go to the settings menu of your phone (all options), enter #70 and press the call key.
