Configure Advanced Meeting Settings

While scheduling a Virtual Office meeting, you can enter advanced settings to further customize your meeting.
You can set preferences such as set up a time zone, select a dial-in phone number, mute participants, and more.

Option Functionality
Maximum Participants Depending on your Virtual Office service package, the maximum number of participants you are able to host could be different. This number cannot be changed.
For details, refer to Know the Participant Capacity.
Time Zone You can change the time zone of a meeting to reflect the location of yourself or your meeting participants. If you want to change the time zone of all future meetings, you can change your extension's main time zone instead.
Dial In Allows you to view the dial-in phone numbers available for participants not joining via Virtual Office. These numbers vary by your purchased plan.
For details, refer to Join Meeting Audio by Phone.
Allow calls to external numbers Allows dialing out to external numbers; this does not affect dial-in numbers. Invitees can request to be called at specific numbers to join meeting audio.

Note: You can only have the meeting call you if a participant from the host's phone system is currently in the meeting.

Note: Billing for calls under external numbers varies according to your purchased plan.
