Audio-only conferencing (reservation less)

The audio bridging capabilities of AAC can be used as a stand-alone service for reservation less audio-only conferencing or they can be used in conjunction with the Web Collaboration features of AAC in lieu of the VOIP audio option. To join the audio portion of an AAC meeting using a conventional desk or cell phone, you would follow these steps:

  1. Dial into the Audio Bridge at 701-328-7950 (other local numbers below). You will be presented with a series of Voice Prompts.
  2. "Please enter your collaboration code followed by the pound (#) key."
  3. If you are the Moderator (Host) of the audio conference, enter your Moderator Code followed by the # key.
  4. If you are a Participant only, enter your Participant Code followed by the # key.
  5. If the Moderator has not yet joined the conference, all participants will hear "hold" music until the Moderator joins the conference.
