Using your contact list/address book
In Outlook, create a new contact and give it a meaningful name such as “Weekly sales meeting”.
Enter the conference call telephone number and PIN with no spaces into the telephone number field as shown above.
Outlook may change your formatting (as shown below) but as long as this was entered with no spaces it will work correctly.
Create a contact and in the telephone number field add your telephone number, comma, comma and then PIN.
To enter the commas (pauses) click on the button showing +*# as shown below.
You will now see a button called pause.
You will need to add two pauses/commas.
Select the contact, and click on the telephone number (highlighted in yellow).
This will dial you straight into the conference call.
Create a new calendar entry or open an existing one.
In the location field, enter your dial string as shown below:
Select the meeting in the calendar on your phone.
Click on the telephone number under the title (highlighted in yellow).
Now click on dial
This also works for international calls.
For instance a caller in the USA might use: 18442919192,,,123456789#
In this example, there is an additional comma to add a bit more delay between dialling the phone number and the PIN.
The first time you try this, listen to the phone dialling so that you can be sure it is not entering the PIN before it connects to the HotAir system. If this is happening add an extra comma.
