I posted this query in July 2020. I didn’t pursue it further that time as I was trying to get familiarised with FCC. I still don’t understand why should FCC have dial-in numbers to join an online conference. Why can’t anybody who has the link or meeting credentials (meeting id & password) join straight away? Today, the most popular online meeting apps like Zoom, Google Meet, MS Teams, all use meeting id & password to hold virtual meetings. In FCC, as a presenter, I’m left with an additional task to explain to my participants how to join the meeting hosted by me using the FCC mobile app.
Today, I had a very embarrassing situation when my old & new team members couldn’t join. I had to switch to the other app to make my meeting successful.
Just now before writing this message, I went through the long list of terms, commands, codes etc. at https://www.freeconferencecall.com/pdf/us/freeconferencecall-us-participant-reference-guide-09-29-2020.pdf & got highly confused. Most people are not aware of FCC & many insist to use other popular apps. Then asking them to learn or understand all these codes, terms etc. to join my meeting through FCC mobile app, I find a herculean task.
Please suggest how can I make it a memorable experience for my meeting attendees? Here, I would also like to clarify that a meeting I hold the first time is with my prospect whose trust level is already very low. Then putting them into such a tricky situation of learning all these new ways of joining a meeting is like losing the half battle before I fought it.
Sorry for such a long message. I hope you will appreciate my predicament.
