Is there anyway to pull someone into a meeting by calling their phone number? Rather than them having to call us? I see that has been under consideration. Any developments?  This feature is very important to our executives who are frequently on the road and who can't enter a bunch of numbers.

Hi Betsy,

Thank you for writing on BJN comm. Currently we don''t have dial out facility from BJN to PSTN numbers. This would be a very cool feature to have though.

This would be an incredibly useful feature.  At my company EAs dial need the ability to pull executives/etc into calls all of them time, because a lot of executives are on the road and rarely have time to look at their calendars to retrieve the meeting info.  Please implement this feature.

Hi,
Has there been any progress on this dial-out feature. This is a primary requirement for us to move away from WebEx.

Hello Betsy and Jesbin,

When joining a meeting from the Blue Jeans browser or app, you now have the option to have the meeting dial your phone number, when you want to conduct the audio portion of the meeting over the phone.

Note: Only U.S. (48 states) and Canada numbers can be dialed at this time. Also the Call Me service is being introduced to a select set of customers during the month of December 2015.

In case you are interested in enabling this feature on your enterprise, please contact your respective Customer Success Manager (CSM).

Heres the link for more details on our Call me feature :
