When a conference is created, the system generates a moderator PIN along with the conference ID. Any participant who joins the conference using the moderator PIN has moderator privileges. There can be multiple moderators in a conference.
A moderator has the following control functions available during a conference. For a full menu, dial * on the keypad. Only the moderator hears the menu, while participants continue talking in the conference. While the menu is playing, the moderator does not hear the conference.
|*||Play or repeat menu options||—|
|*0||Transfer to Operator||—|
|*1||Mute or unmute your line||—|
|*2||Participant count, followed by roll call||—|
|*3||Enable or disable Lecture Mode||When Lecture Mode is enabled, all participants are muted except for the moderator. Any new participants joining the conference are automatically muted. Only the moderator who turned on Lecture Mode is allowed to speak.|
|*4||Lock or unlock conference||When a conference is locked, new participants cannot join the conference. The conference must be unlocked before new participants can join the conference again. While a conference is locked, a moderator can still invite new participants using Outdialing. After the last moderator leaves, the conference is automatically unlocked; this allows a new moderator to join and take control of the conference.|
|*5||Recording menu||A moderator can record a conference for up to 5 hours. After the recording has been started, it can be paused, restarted, or stopped. The recording is available for download from the UCx Web Portal for 15 days.|
|*6||Outdial to participant||Invites a new participant to join the conference. The moderator enters the participant’s phone number and the conferencing service originates the call. When the new participant answers the call, they hear: “You have been invited to join an audio conference. Press 1 to join the conference.” If the participant presses 1, they join the conference; otherwise, the call is released.|
|*7||Enter Self-Identification Code||Participants can self-identify to any application that is subscribed for notifications. When a conference is created, the host can select if attendees should self-identify themselves by entering a code with a maximum of 10 digits.|
|#||Exit the menu and return to the conference||—|
