Dogs can be very entertaining, but they can also be a nuisance – especially when they are barking during a conference call! Believe it or not, it happens. Many professionals work from home where noisy distractions abound. So if you have not trained your dog to “mute” on command, then consider pressing *6 to mute the phone when you’re not talking. And if you need to put participants on hold, and you don’t want the “hold music” to interrupt the call, press *6.
We encourage all of our clients to use the *6 feature on a regular basis, whether at home or at the office. This will enhance the conferencing experience for everyone.
