Tips for successful scheduling.
- We recommend making reservations 48 hours in advance to ensure the time you request is available and give you time to inform your participants of the conference information.
- When scheduling your call online, you will need to provide the date, time, duration and number of participants who will dial into your conference. In addition, you will need to verify your billing information.
- When participating in your conference call, please be prompt. Your conference number and passcode will be activated for the reserved call time. Due to the high demand for conferences, calls with no participants will be deactivated shortly after the scheduled start time.
- All conferences with premier level features must be scheduled at a minimum of two business days in advance so a Verizon Conferencing meeting manager can contact you to confirm specific details about those features.
When should I use e-Scheduling?
You can use e-Scheduling instead of calling into the Conferencing reservation center. With e-Scheduling you can:
- Review your scheduled Conference calls
- Schedule, modify and cancel your one-time or recurring operator unattended and attended, audio conference calls in real time.
- Schedule, modify and cancel your one-time or recurring video conference calls in real time.
- Schedule, modify and cancel your one-time or recurring Net conference calls in real-time.
What about security?
Verizon Conferencing ensures that your personal information is secured at all times. When you register to become a user of e-Scheduling, you will receive a unique username and password that is required each time you logon to reserve a conference online. All data sent between the client and the server is encrypted.
