Asterisk Conference


I was wondering if it is possible to “pull” people into a conference? So if I dial a specific number, it rings two or more extensions and when they answer they are automatically placed in to a conference call? As opposed to everyone having to dial a number to enter a conference?

Thanks in advance.

P.S Any version of Asterisk as I am only researching at the moment.

Maybe you can create a script or web page that connects via AMI to asterisk, and you define the meetme room via phone or textbox and then define the extensions that you want to be in the conference. Then you send the Originate command with the information given.

Some like:
Originate Sip/80801 extension 1000@office where Sip/80801 is your room and the 1000 is one of those extensions to connect
