Fridays' Swyx Tip #6: Save Travel Cost With Conference Calls

Tom Wellige



From 2009 to 2011 mirjam baumberger wrote a great blog, the "Fridays' Swyx Tip". Every Friday she posted a tip regarding the usage of SwyxWare and connected tools and devices. As the old forum is offline, this article series will be restored here again over the time. Please note that some information in this article series might not be valid anymore with current SwyxWare versions.

Dear Swyx Users


SwyxWare offers integrated conferencing functionality that allows you to easily setup and conduct conference calls for your staff, suppliers and customers. A conference can be quickly set up individually by any user or the callers can dial directly into a virtual conference room with a unique extension.




Conference rooms are set up by the administrator. Internal or external numbers are assigned with which the conference rooms can be "entered". In contrast to a conference held only via SwyxIt! or phone, all participants can leave the conference independently of one another, without the conference being terminated.


Access to conference calls can also be controlled with a PIN or restricted to calls from certain telephone numbers.


A conference room can further have “opening hours” associated and you can download this simple sample script from here:







Because it is a Swyx is software-based solution, Swyx conferencing capabilities do not require any additional hardware 🙂 , Swyx Optionpack Conference or Optionpack Professional is needed to enable this feature.


Any questions?


Happy weekend...
