We are excited to announce that we have now released Tone-only Entry and Exit notifications for our PSTN Conferencing service in preview. Participants can now get notified by a tone when a dial-in user enters or exits instead of having the service read out full names.
In order to enable this in your tenant, please follow these steps:
1) Go to the Office Admin Portal. 2) Under “Admin Centers” go to “Skype For Business”. 3) Select “dial-in conferencing” along the left side. 4) Select “Microsoft bridge settings” within the top menu. 5) Check “Enable meeting entry and exit notifications to be turned on.” 6) Under “Entry-exit announcements type,” use the drop-down menu and select “Tones (Preview).” 7) Click Save.
This feature is on a per tenant basis, therefore this setting update will take affect for all meetings with dial-in conferencing. To learn more about the released version of this feature, please visit our Office Support Page about entry and exit announcements.
