Published Jan 19 2017 10:52 AM 4,022 Views

Hi everyone,

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.

If you have any feedback on the product, (improvements or changes), please submit those here:
