Cool Tip of the Day 9: Schedule a Conference Call or Live Meeting

can use the Conferencing Add-In for Microsoft® Office Outlook® to
schedule Microsoft® Office Communicator 2007 R2 conference calls or
Microsoft® Office Live Meeting Web conferences. Schedule Live Meeting
Web conferences when you need to show slides, share an application or
your desktop, or collaborate on a whiteboard. For instructions about
installing the Conferencing Add-In for Microsoft Outlook, contact your
system administrator.

Schedule a conference call

Open Microsoft Outlook, click Conferencing, and then click Schedule a Conference Call. This schedules a call exclusively in Communicator; you do not need Live Meeting installed.

Schedule a Live Meeting

Open Microsoft Outlook, click Conferencing, and then click Schedule a Live Meeting.

Add a dial-in number

In the conferencing request, click Audio, and then click Also allow attendees to call in with telephones.
The meeting invitation will contain the telephone number, conference
ID, and pass code that the participant can use to join the audio part of
the conference.

Add the Microsoft Office Live Meeting toolbar

Open Microsoft Outlook, click View, point to Toolbars, and then select Microsoft Office Live Meeting.
