Voice commands lets you dial into your conference even without opening the App. Just long hold the windows start button and say your command. The command is of the following format:
Conference In <Conference Name> [as <host|participant>]
<Conference Name> is the name of the conference you would want to dial in. This is mandatory
[as <host|participant>] is an optional input. If you only have host or participant saved. It will dial in automatically. If you have both saved, you need to say 'as host' or 'as participant'. If the optional parameter is not provided but there is both host and participant available, the application will request you to say host or participant as in the below screenshot.
If the optional parameter is wrongly provided, say a conference has host but you say 'as participant', the application will prompt for correction as per the below screenshot.
Conference In <John's Bridge>
Conference In <Matt's Bridge> [as <host>]
Back up & restore data
This feature lets you back up your conference information to your SkyDrive account and restore it whenever needed. This is very useful when you are using multiple windows phone or performing a factory reset of the phone.
Once you login with SkyDrive account you will see the following screen:
The backup option generates a file in your SkyDrive, while the restore downloads the backup file from your SkyDrive and adds the content into your conference list in the application.
The checkbox options in the backup and restore screen needs to be used cautiously. The 'remove conference from SkyDrive which are not on phone', removes any previously saved conference in your SkyDrive but not currently in your phone. This helps when you have old conference in SkyDrive which you are not using any more and which you want to remove. Once the old conference is removed from SkyDrive, they cannot be restored.
Similary, the 'remove conference from phone which are not in SkyDrive', will just copy all the conference from SkyDrive to your phone. Any conference in your phone which is not in SkyDrive will be deleted. Once the conference in the phone is deleted they cannot be restored.
