Tip #3: how do I schedule repeating or regular conference calls?

By | Conference call, my Global Conference, Tips | No Comments

It happens a lot, you are running a 4-month project and need to talk to the team every week, or maybe twice a week to discuss and review progress, share information… the last thing you want to do is schedule every meeting one at a time. So you fix a date and time and send out a repeat invite.

But what if the meeting is a conference call? how can the conference call be scheduled repeatededly as well?

Use reservationless conference calls and add the conference details in the body of the invite.

First create a reservationless conference. You will get a new pair of conference call codes (administrator + participant code).

Then just add the participant code in the text body of the repeating meeting invitation that you are about to send out, also add the dial-in numbers as a courtesy to the participants so they’ll know which numbers to dial.

Since it is a reservationless conference code pair, you can use it over and over, no conference scheduling necessary! that simple.

A last recommendation: when creating the reservationless conference, remember to tick or untick the options such as “activate admin access code”, if unticked it will mean that as soon as any participant will dial-in he or she will be able to start speaking. If ticked all the participants will have to wait for the conference organiser to dial in using the administrator code.

Have great conferences!

Sharing office space and a desk, an increasingly new way of working in our new normal world

By | Conference call, Teleworking, Uncategorized | No Comments

Its been a growing trend lately, partly due to the crisis and its austerity measures, but also partly due to a new way of approaching life – in a less wasteful way.

Sharing: time sharing, co-owning, renting, swapping, re-using… 

We can all relate, more and more people share, it is not uncommon to hear of a friend of colleague who co-owns (and shares) a car with a friend, or who has access to a shared car via its public transport yearly pass. People share summer houses, or share common areas in apartment buildings (spa, swimming pool but also just a play room), or share an vegetable garden in a neighborhood. Some people share a job, with two people working part time on the same task.

So it is no surprise that in the wake of a growing trend of remote working, we see sharing an office space and desks with others also becoming more and more popular. Although the concept of renting office space in a larger complex or office building is not new, what we are seeing appearing is the presence of remote workers who check-in to a close-by shared office space to telecommute. Effectively only renting out a desk and access to an internet connection, maybe a printer. A bit like what happens in airport lounges. Your neighbors in the office are not your colleagues, they work for other companies also remotely.

A bit like Airbnb proposes a platform for homeowners to advertise and rent their homes for a few days, ShareDesk proposes a platform for office space owners to advertise and rent their (extra) office space to occasional or not-so-occasional remote workers and telecommuters.

After all, if you are telecommuting, it is probably better for you to be in an office environment (a quite cool one too if possible) than just at home. You can meet people, have a chat, exchange views, grab a quick lunch next door… all of this without having to drive or commute for too long.

We love the idea, and we support it with the technology and service to enable it:conferencing calls!
