New in Meetupcall: Get called for every conference

Love them or hate them your recurring weekly conference calls provide a time and a place for your team to discuss issues.  If you join these via a traditional conference call service you’re probably dialling the same number, entering the same PIN codes, and dealing with the same latecomers every time.

If you’ve already used Meetupcall’s Call Me When It Starts then you’ll know how much easier it makes joining a conference call and how it all but eliminates latecomers. But for a weekly recurring conference call you still had to manually request a call from us each time. Wouldn’t it be great if Meetupcall just called you for your 10am Friday conference call, automatically, every week?

Today we’ve added a new recurring dial-out feature to make joining your regular conference calls even easier. In fact to join your weekly, monthly or quarterly calls all you’ll have to do is answer your ringing phone and you’ll be placed directly into every conference, no PINs, no fuss.

Here’s how it works:

The next time you send or receive a meetupcall invite, click the Call Me When It Starts button, depending on the type of call you’ll now have a number of options:

For this conference call only will call you for just the single event.

For every occurrence of this recurring conference call you will be called for all occurrences of the recurring meeting.

Every time I’m due on a conference call will call you automatically at the start time for every meetupcall you arrange or are invited to.

We’ll still send you the reminder e-mails a few minutes before the start time to let you know we’re about to call, and from here you can cancel or update your call me when it starts preferences:

To use this feature, you will need to be on one of our paid plans and you will also need dial-out enabled on your leader account.

We hope this update makes your recurring conference calls a little but more painless!
