how to use JOIN CONFERENCE in creating an event?

Novel Adventurer

Can anyone guide me, how do I create an event via JOIN CONFERENCE on skype... that's where I host the call, and people sign in with a pin, and I can open or close their microphones for them to participate in the call or not?

Hi, rainspirit, and welcome to the Community,


Skype conference calling is not set up to work as you describe it, like a conference call bridge.  Participants must be invited to join a call in-progress.  Access via PIN code is not supported, as neither is the microphone mute function.


I am sorry to be the bringer of unwelcome news.

thanks Elaine for the reply...

perhpas I didnt expalin myself clearly...

I wish to set up a CALL like a "webinar" whereby participants add JOINCONFERENCE as a CONTACT on skype, and then enter the CALL via skype join conference...........

i attend many of these calls with speakers globally, 

after dialling "joinconference" on skype, one enters a PIN on the keypad in order to access THAT SPECIFIC call.......

I wish to set up my own call with up to 100 listeners for example.....

i dont know how to do that tho, using this skype "joinconference" contact / pin option?

The feature of join.conference is third party.  Teleseminar or some such thing.  When you are offered this feature you will notice it is a website other than skype.  Check what it is and go to its home URL and you will discover all about it ... usually expensive!
