How to Save a Conference Call (and Access Code) as a Contact

phone with conference call active

Dialing a conference call doesn’t have to be a tedious process. Your iPhone or Android phone can automatically dial into the call and enter a confirmation code for you. You just have to create a special type of contact.

Better yet, this speeds things up when you must connect to a conference call while driving. In an age where we can use Google Assistant and Siri in our cars, manually dialing a phone number is just so antiquated. I call the conference bridge for my day job at least once per week, and I was desperate for a way to connect to my coworkers without having to look down and punch the digits in.

Thankfully, it’s super easy to automate this. Whether you use iPhone or Android, you’ll just set the conference bridge as a contact you can call, either by tapping it or using a voice assistant.

A Quick Caveat

The only way you can save the conference as a contact is if your company uses a single confirmation code or conference ID. You’ll have to dial manually every time if the ID changes with each meeting, or just have multiple contacts if your company rotate conference codes.

How To Save a Conference Call as a Contact on Android

I’m using the Google Pixel 2 XL for this guide, but the steps are similar on other Android phones. Start by opening the Contacts or People app and selecting “Create New Contact.”

tap create new contact

Add a name for the meeting and any other contact details you need.

Add the ten-digit phone number and then tap the symbols button on the lower-left of the number pad. Tap the “Pause” button to add a pause to the number (it shows up as a comma) and then type in the conference ID.
