    Currently, if you would like to schedule a conference call, you have to create a new conference and if you would like to reschedule, you can edit. We do not have the option to set a recurring conference that would hold the same conference ID, specifically for conference calls that would be held on a certain day each week at a set time, I.E. Every Monday @ 0800 AM. For this to be accomplished you have to edit a previous conference and change the date and the Conference ID then changes again.

    We would like to request the option for setting a weekly/bi-weekly/monthly recurring conference.

    We just upgraded from version 14 SP 3 to version 15 SP 4 and this is a huge problem for us too.

    On the old version, we were able to schedule a conference call based on selecting a start AND end date for the conference call. This allowed us to schedule a conference from today through the end of the year and assign to one individual. Any conference calls that individual wanted to schedule for reoccurring meetings would be sent using that one PIN for the year and the individual distributed with their recurring invitation to outside parties via an internal Outlook invitation.

    In businesses such as ours where weekly or monthly meetings are an ongoing necessity with either our vendors, our clients or our investors, it is extremely inconvenient to schedule individual meetings every time we need a PIN and even more time consuming to send individual meeting invitations with a new PIN for each of these type of meetings.

    This was our biggest disappointment of version 15 is not being able to schedule "long term" conferences. 3CX really needs to step up and either incorporate that feature back into version 15 OR provide for recurring meetings options when creating a scheduled conference.

    Hi Team,

    It would be good to add a recurrence option on the conference schedule tab. Lets say recurrence options could be daily, weekly,monthly or yearly.

    This would save time in creating conference with same set of participants and also add more reliability to the conference operation.

    Thanks,

    The ability to create conference calls is part of the Call Control API. We could create a web portal where you setup your recurring conference calls and have the service automatically create the conference calls for you on a scheduled basis. We already do this kind of thing in our "3CX On Call Manager" commercial product. www.VoIPTools.com

    @voiptoys : this is a good idea however not a unified approach.
    The conference recurrence option should be a part of 3CX softphone client.

    Yes, permanent or ongoing conference calls were important features for us and our customers. It is very inconvenient to recreate scheduled conferences every time.

    Agreed. There is another post requesting the same feature for Reoccurring Conference. There are several PBX solutions that has this feature. Another thing is that previous versions of 3CX had a way to set a Start and End date, but that is no longer available in v15.

    I would also like to see this. We are switching a couple organizations over that have weekly reoccurring meetings.

    It will be very good if we could add reoccurring Conference

    +1 - Need this feature!

    Just got a very long rather condescending email internally questioning why we event went with 3CX when the conference calling is "so bad its a joke". One of the biggest complaints, the lack of reoccurring meetings.

    Please add this soon!
