Add Parties to Call and Chat


When on a call, you may want to add a vendor, or any other outside participant into the call to create a conference call. You can also call another party and speak to the other caller while the first caller is on hold, then return to the first caller without connecting the two callers. Both of these scenarios can be done with the Add a Party feature.

Adding a third party to a call

  1. Click the Hold button to place the current caller on hold.

  2. Click Add Party to bring up the dial pad.

  3. Enter the third party number.

  4. Click the Call button to dial out to the third party.

  5. Remain on the line, complete the call as normal, and click Done when you are finished;


  6. If you want to leave the call so that the two (or more) callers on the line remain on a call but you are no longer connected, click Done.
