Have a question about how SimpleEvent works while you are dialed in?  Below are the features and instructions to get your started.  If you have a question about a feature please contact us and we will be happy to assist.

When using SimpleEvent you will need to notify your attendees and panelists of the date, time, dial-in numbers and access codes for your event. The event Organizer(s) , panelists and attendees will each have a dedicated dial-in number and access code.

All organizers will call the same dial-in number and enter the same access code followed by the # key. All panelists will call the same dial-in number and enter the same access code followed by the # key. All attendees will call the same dial-in number and enter the same access code following by the # key.

In organizing your conference, only the Organizer(s) and Panelists are allowed to speak during the presentation. Attendees can only listen, allowing no interaction.

As an Organizer(s) , when you first dial in, you will be placed in an open conference with other organizers and panelists on the call. To start your conference the Organizer(s) must press *1 and all attendees will be able to listen to the conference call.

Recording Instructions
During the live conference, the Organizer can start recording by pressing *9. The system disconnects him/her from the conference and then the Organizer is returned to the conference and all attendees are notified that the recording option has been started. To stop and save the recording, the Organizer will press *9 again.

Playback Instructions
To listen to the recorded conference, the Organizer must provide Panelists and Attendees with the playback number and playback access code. Please note, this number is different from the conference dial-in number. When users call into the recording playback number, they will be prompted to enter the playback access code.
