Conference Calls (MyRoom)

All Collaborate users have a “MyRoom” facility, which allows you to have a conference call of up to 50 users. Your MyRoom facility is available in the top right of the client’s header.

To start an audio conference call, simply click the phone icon. Everyone joining the conference needs to click this icon, however the conference will start when the Host joins the conference.

To start a video conference of up to 15 users, you should select the Camera icon. Like the audio conference, this will start once the Host joins.
