OK folks, let’s try this Round Table Call-In again for tonight at 8:00 pm. I will start my end of the meeting at 7:30 that way I get the meeting’s ID number early so I can post it on here for you to use – it will be posted at the top of this article and in the comments section.
Ike and I had a great 50 minute discussion last week but we really need 3 or 4 guys to make it work well.
I’ll record the audio part of the discussion and post it tomorrow. Please don’t worry about what your voice sounds like after recording. Honestly, I’ve noticed everyone’s voice sounds better when it is recorded than in real life.
Again – I have subscribed to Bluejeans.com for our teleconference platform. It is as easy as pie to either login with the URL I’ll provide at 7:30 or so… or you can call-in with your phones to the bluejeans phone number then enter this meeting’s unique ID code.
All a caller has to do is dial the websites regular phone number and then enter a 10 digit “Meeting’s unique ID code” and the screen will ask you what name you want to use then Hey Presto! you are in the discussion group.
You can also get into the discussion just by clicking on a link and a unique call-in code I will provide you via email or via the POV comments section…
Here is the Bluejeans.com front page and at the top you will see a bar that looks like this over toward the right side:
You’ll click on the “Join Meeting” box and that will start you into the below process.
Before you do that I will have sent an email, text or posted the meeting’s ID number. An example of this is if you’re using your computer I will post this link:
https:/bluejeans.com/5713314009 (that last number was our session’s unique ID # from last week – it changes with every meeting).
Do that and you are in Bluejeans. Truly is as easy as pie… Then:
The screen above will appear and in a caller’s case you would click on the bottom circle on the left – “Enter meeting ID”.
After that you should see the screen below.
I put a red dot next to the “Camera on” question because if you don’t want to be seen by others you will click ‘off’.
If you don’t want to be heard but want to listen-in real-time I believe you can click the microphone ‘off’ and still hear the session as it is playing out – but then you can join in the discussion at any time by clicking your mic back to ‘on’… haven’t tested that yet.
Here is a link to their video tutorials.
You guys don’t have to download the Bluejeans.com app if you don’t want to – you can get into the meeting by the above steps. But the Bluejeans rep I talked to said that if someone is going to be doing it all the time then the app is easier.
See you at 8:00 tonight. If we get more than 3 or 4 callers we’ll see how we handle it. I’ll have some standard questions for everyone then we’ll discuss the last week’s articles in more detail and, of course, anything you all want to talk about also.
Thanks – Reed
