One great way to help ensure that your phone conference is efficient and stays on track is to utilize the Mute and Unmute conference call function. This feature enables the Chairperson of the call to mute and unmute all the callers that have joined your phone conference call as a participant. The Participant is able to hear everything being said on the phone call, however their line is muted. This functionality is a free feature with Conference Calls Unlimited.
There are 2 ways to enable mute:
Here are some examples of when the Chairperson may wish to Mute and/or Unmute the lines:
All Chairperson and Participants also have the option to Mute their own individual line as well.
Here is a funny video that highlights the inevitable need to mute and unmute your lines accordingly. Take a moment to watch this 1:03 video about a gentleman who needs to MUTE HIS LINE:
Bottom line: Muting is a very easy way to help maintain and set the tone for your phone conference call. Another benefit is that, by muting lines, the chairperson can eliminate pre-conference chatter. This creates space for coherence and focus. With the ability to mute and unmute conference call lines, your host also has an array of organizing power and influence that can really extend the efficiency of the conference call and help leverage everyone's valuable time.
