The Phone dial-in allows people to join an alfaview room or meeting via their phone.
If you join via a guest link, the name that was entered when the link was created will be displayed in the alfaview room. If you join using a group link, your name consists of the last three digits of your telephone number.

Participants who have joined the alfaview room via Phone dial-in will be indicated accordingly.

Information for Company owner:

In order for invited people to be able to use telephone dial-in, you must have it enabled for your company. Contact our support or sales team if you would like to trial or book Phone dial-in.

Phone dial-in can only be booked in conjunction with an alfaview pay plan.

If you have received an invitation email sent through the alfaview system, you will find the telephone numbers and dial-in code to join via phone at the end of the email.

When using a guest link, note that you cannot simultaneously enter a room or meeting using the alfaview app and Phone dial-in.
