Reservationless conferences allow you to call any time you wish, without scheduling your conference through the Conferncetown.com website. Using your own planning tools, you can create a conference on-demand. When you register, you will receive a dedicated Dial-in Number and Conference ID. Just let your participants know the date, time, Dial-in Number and Conference ID. You can use your reservationless Dial-in number and unique conference ID again and again.
We sure do! Click here to view or download our Pocket Guide.
Anyone who can dial a US telephone number can dial a ConferenceTown.com access number.
Your recording will be available for callers through a dedicated phone number (712-831-9313) and by then entering the appropriate conference ID. If you would like to playback or archive your recording, you can convert the recording to an MP3 file and store it digitally, or simply download and save it as a .WAV file.

There is no time limit on conference call recordings. The call will continue to be recorded until the last participant exits the call. The moderator has the option to start and stop the recording of the conference call as he or she wishes.
The recorded conference is kept for 30 days. If you would like it longer than that, you will need to save the recording to your hard drive or some other means of off-site storage.
There is no expiration date.
There is no required minimum number of callers to hold a conference call. For best quality, the maximum is 5000 callers. However, if you need to hold a conference call for more than 5000 participants, we are able to provide you with an even more robust system. For conferences greater than 5000 participants, please contact us.
The system allows you to store an unlimited number of conferences.
There is no specific limit on how many conferences you can schedule or when they can occur. Each conference is associated with a phone number to call and a unique conference ID. Our software makes sure each conference is unique and private.

Technically, it's possible but a conference ID that starts with "0" will not be able to access/use some of the moderator panel options. Example: A conference ID that begins with "0" won't be able to use the "mute" function as well as other functions within the moderator panel.
Once your recording is completed, you may view it by logging into the moderator panel and then going to "conference recordings".
From there, you have 3 basic options:
1. Download it as an MP3 File
Next to the conference you want to download as an MP3 click "Convert to MP3".
Once it is done converting, you will want to save it to your computer. To do so, you will right click on the word "download" then click "save target as". Then choose where on your computer you want to save it. A likely location would be your desktop. It will then be saved on your computer as an MP3 file.
Downloading to an MP3 is the most common method used, as it compresses the file into the most email-friendly format.
2. Download it as a WAVE File
Next to the conference you want to download, right click on the word "download" then click "save target as". Then choose where you want to save it. A likely location would be your desktop. It will then be saved on your computer as a .WAV file.
Important: to download as a .WAV file, you must do so BEFORE converting it to an MP3 File.
3. Share - Allow Others to Access it Via Telephone
This option allows you to let others call in via telephone to listen to a previously recorded conference call.
Next to the conference you want to "share", click "share". It will post a 4 digit number next to where it said "share".
That 4-digit number will be used to identify individual recordings under a single conference number.
To use this method, the callers will dial into the Conference Recording Playback Number, which is 712-831-9313.
They will be prompted to enter the Conference ID that they want to listen to. THEN, if there is more than one recording on that Conference ID, they will be prompted to enter that 4-digit number.
If your file is to large to email to your prospects, it is recommended that once you save the MP3 to your computer, that you then upload it to a site, then point your prospects to that site.
Click on "Conference Controls" (Upper left hand corner). Now look to the top middle portion of the screen. You will see headings such as "Conference ID", "Conference Begin", etc. Under the "Actions" heading, the red circle Image is the record button. With that you can start/stop recording.
You must be logged in a Moderator. Use "*3" (star, 3) to start and stop recording. For more details, please see our Pocket Guide.
Exit and Entry tones can be turned on and off by logging into your moderator panel, then choosing "Manage Conferences", and then scrolling down until you find your conference number, clicking "edit", then you may select the options you need.
If you are running larger conferences, you will probably want to have entry and exit tones turned off, but of course it is up to the moderator.
If you are in the middle of a conference call, and you make changes to your conference via the moderator panel, those changes will not take effect until your next call. So be sure to set your parameters before your conference begins. You can use the telephone keypad options while the conference is going. Here is a link to view our pocket guide.
