conference bridge multiple phone numbers
As a multi-national organization, it would be nice to have functionality that allowed all users to receive calls from local numbers. We have several conference bridge phone numbers, one for each country we operate in, but for some reason it is impossible to configure multiple "default conference bridge numbers" (the number that shows up on callerID when you add someone to a Skype call).
We can set default conference bridge per user, but this currently only affects the default bridge included in their meeting invite....it doesn't change the bridge that gets used when calling out to add people to a meeting.
Multiple fixes could be done. You could allow the user to explicetly choose the bridge used for calling out. You could use an algorithm to select the "nearest bridge" based on the phone number being dialed (i.e. if US number is dialed, use the US bridge).
Completely agree and shocked that this is not available by now.

Agree completely. The current option for IT having to change the "default" (which really should be renamed to just "conference bridge") every time an international bridge is needed is unworkable.

Two customers have also asked for this.
Dial out from the Meeting Organizer's country number would be best (and should be easy enough to implement).
Super unprofessional when we have a call in ie. the US and call in a client, the call comes from a different country... Please add some options
