So for instance, if I am constructing a meeting invite for 10:00 AM tomorrow morning using my confernce call number. Can I add a dial string to the Outlook meeting details that would dial the person all the way into the conference (more than just dialing the conference call phone number).
I would expect the string to look something like this:
Conference call number + pause to wait for conference call to answer + dial the passcode to the conference
I tried the above combination (obviously with real info) but it will only dial the phone number, not the additional pause and conference passcode.
So is there a way to tell the BB to dial the string and not just the number?
I would think this is useful, because I open a meeting request then click on the phone number but I always have to remember the conference code separetly to be able to dial it in manually.
Anyone have a solution?
That should work. I use it all the time. Try editing the phone number on your BlackBerry. Delete the existing commas, then type them back in using the comma key. An inverse P
should appear (black background / white P) when you hit comma. Also, each comma is a 2 second delay. I find two usually does the trick. One might even do it, but I'd rather wait the extra two seconds than have to redial.
When you dial the number, the BlackBerry should display "pausing for two seconds" when it hits the commas. If you don't get this, see if you need a firmware upgrade.
