Last Thursday, members of the UberConference team traveled to New York for Pepcom’s annual summer showcase, Digital Experience. At the event, the team demoed UberConference to the more than 350 journalists and analysts in attendance.

A large number of the attendees noted that they already use UberConference (especially using the call recording feature for interviews).

Digital Experience also gave the opportunity to introduce UberConference to people who hadn’t used the service before. Future users were eager to try out the mobile app (on Android and iOS) and also to use screensharing.

Thanks to Pepcom for welcoming us and to all of the attendees for stopping by our booth.

You asked for it, and we delivered. We are pleased to announce a fantastic new addition to our suite of productivity applications with screen sharing. Our award-winning teleconferencing service now supports real-time collaboration with screen sharing. (In addition to recent integrations with Google Hangouts, Google Doc add-ons, and in-conference document sharing.)

Facilitating a screen share is as easy as clicking the “Share Your Screen” button in the bottom left corner of the UberConference dashboard in Google Chrome. Presenters without the UberConference extension will be prompted to install it the first time they screen share, also having the option to share their full screen or a specific tab. Viewers will automatically be able to see the presenter’s screen view on their own screens using any browser.

UberConference Business now offers a complete control panel for business administrators. From the new dashboard, account admins are now able to create individual team member accounts from start to finish.

Admins have more flexibility to create accounts in the way that best suits their team. To create an account on behalf of a user, specify the user’s signup email and conference number area code. Users will then get a welcome email with the ability to set a password.

Admins still have the option to let team members create their own accounts. With this option, each team member will simply get an invitation email with a link to sign up. After they finish creating their account, they will automatically become part of your team.

This new feature will work for both local and toll-free account generation.

Should the admin want to create accounts from a longer list, contacts can be imported from a .CSV file. Subsequently, they can also be exported into a .CSV file with their permanent new UberConference phone numbers. This portal also makes it easier for administrators to control team billing, group account management, and adding or deleting associated accounts instantly.

Questions? Contact our awesome support team at support@uberconference.com, or send them a quick message through live chat on our website. They’re available from 6am-8pm EST.

Gina Bianchini, CEO of MightyBell spoke to us at Failcon this past month on some of her biggest disasters in business (the flop when she was in charge at Ning, pivoting in several business ventures, and even her latest course change at MightyBell), but what stood out for most was her advice to women when they are in work meetings.

According to several studies, men and women who act the same and say the same exact thing are perceived in a completely different way. Gina says it’s no accident women try to be more demure and apologetic in work situations.

Some takeaways (for both genders):

  • Notice the other women in your office. Notice when they are being cut off. Speak up for them and ask that they be heard. Say, “Can we go back to what Chloe was saying? I’d really like to hear her finish on that.”
  • Make sure you are not dismissing someone based on their gender. Recognize your own gender bias.
  • If you want to make it in Silicon Valley, learn how to SELL! Women may not get the same credit as a male entrepreneur, according to Bianchini, but they can learn how to sell to the users and gain their funding straight from the source.

We do our best to listen to feedback from our customers, and we’ve been hearing quite a few requests to give UberConference organizers the ability to choose who receives the summary emails sent after each conference call.

We originally implemented this feature to give meetings more context. The summary emails contain links to any shared documents or recordings, correlating with meeting notes for reference. They also include interesting stats, like who was there and who talked the most and the least.

If UberConference Pro and Business organizers would rather not have the email summaries sent to every participant after the conference ends, they now have the ability to manage that in their settings.

To specify who should receive the conference summaries, go to uberconference.com/settings (when logged in), and scroll all the way down to the “Notification Preferences” section. Under “Call Summary,” you will see the option to disable or enable the conference call summary for participants or for yourself. Don’t forget to click on the “Save Changes” button on the bottom of the page.

We’re continuously trying to make Business features more robust for our customers, and disabling call summary emails is just one of the many ways you can customize your conference calls with UberConference Business. Business users also get advanced features like custom hold music, up to 100 callers, dial out to add guests to call, local conference phone numbers, and more.

UberConference Free users still maintain control over the summary emails for themselves.
