Getting Started with AT&T Conferencing
Previously, Telephone Services handled all requests for AT&T Conferences. Now, you must handle these arrangements on your own. Requests must be submitted at least five days in advance using this online request form or, for same-day service you may contact AT&T by phone using these instructions.
Once established, the AT&T conference is exclusively yours and is available to you 24/7. Participants can join by phone, computer or both. Hosts can schedule and access conferences directly from their AT&T desktop application using Outlook. The virtual meeting lets users share voice and data using existing internet and phone resources. If you do not use your conference at least once every six months, AT&T will automatically delete your conference. If this occurs, you will need to setup a new conference as they are unable to re-active a dormant conference.
• Audio, Web or a combination of both
• Video, up to 4 video links, web cameras required
• Interfaces with Outlook for scheduling conferences
• Reservationless, up to 125 participants per conference
• Application sharing, material sharing and web tours

You are responsible for the security of your Host Code. Protect it as if it were a PIN and do not share the Host Code with others as you are solely responsible for all charges to your conference. Conferences are not to be shared among departments or various individuals within a department; each department or person needs to establish their own conference to ensure security and billing to the correct budget.
