Release 7.1
Revised: April 3, 2011 8:30 pm

The Direct Inward Dial (DID) feature enables users to call directly into a meeting by dialing the meeting ID, instead of dialing one of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace access phone numbers on the Usage Configuration Page.

Before You Begin

Configure your call-control device to route DID calls to the Application Server.

For example, in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, configure a route pattern for each meeting ID that you want to make available for DID. Configure these route patterns to send calls to the trunk that leads to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server. See the Configuring Call Control for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace module.


DID callers can join meetings as profiled users through the auto attend feature. If, however, the Auto attend mode user profile field is set to None, then the DID caller can join meetings only as a guest.


Step 1 Log in to the Administration Center.

Step 2 Select System Configuration > Usage Configuration.

Step 3 Set the Route calls to meeting ID that matches DID field to Yes.

Step 4 Select Save.
