Conference Schedule Example Application

This chapter illustrates an example of configuring conference schedule feature.

The sales director of the company “ABC” needs to organize a conference and invite different sales managers to discuss different topics. We will assume the following:

  1. Sales director needs to have a conference room available on the extension number 6300 which will allow him to invite manually Sales Team members to discuss different topics.
  2. Every Monday at 9 AM, the sales director will organize with sales team a conference to discuss different topics and assign new tasks, the conference room used to host this weekly meeting is 6301.
  3. We will assume in this example that the UCM6xxx is already synchronized with Google Calendar services.
  • Configuring Conference room 6300
