Use the Dial-in section to control how meeting participants dial into your meeting. This is especially useful if some meeting participants are not Fuze users.

Host Pin

The Host Pin is a 4-digit numeric PIN that allows you to identify yourself as the meeting host. If you are the host of a meeting and you dial in instead of joining from Fuze Desktop, Fuze Web, or Fuze Mobile, you must enter this PIN to start the meeting. No one else can join the meeting until you enter the PIN.

Changing your Host Pin

To change your Host PIN, complete the following:

  1. Click the pencil icon.
  2. Type a new 4-digit numeric PIN into the text box.
  3. Click the check mark button.

Add countries (optional)

If you often meet with people from other countries, you can select one or more countries to include local dial-in numbers for those participants in your meeting invites.

Set your default country

Select a primary country to determine the toll-free numbers that are provided to participants that dial into your meetings.

Host Delegates

For information on meeting controls and features, refer to Meetings Features.

Use the Host Delegates section to assign other Fuze users at your organization privileges to start and host meetings that you created.

To add a host delegate, enter their name in the My host delegates field and select them from the list that is displayed.
