Recording conference calls as host or a participant is a popular Evoca feature works that works seamlessly to record your important conference calls and online meetings. Popular conference call services include WebEx, GoToMeeting, MeetingBurner, FreeConferenceCall.com, Calliflower, and InterCall. If you are a participant, the host will send you the conference phone number and participant code.
Basically you will  dial into the conference line, add your favorite Evoca dial-in phone number using your three-way dialing feature, and then  “join” yourself and the Evoca phone line back into the conference call. Voila! You are now recording! We recognize your registered phone number, so rest assured … we instantly save the recording as an MP3 in your secure online Evoca account.
How to record a phone conference call
- Make sure you have registered the phone number that you will use during your interview recording session.
- You registered at least one phone number when you signed up
- To register more numbers see: Register your phone number[s]
- Confirm how to do three-way calling from your phone
Step 1: Place your call to the conference phone number and enter code as host or participant
Step 2: Use your phone’s three-way calling capability to call your favorite Evoca phone number when all participants are on the conference call
Step 3: After you hear the Evoca welcome message and the beep, join the Evoca line with the conference call line
- Recording begins as soon as you hear the beep.

Step 4: Save the recording when done. Choose either one of these two methods:
- Hang up the entire phone call, both the conference line and the Evoca line
- Release the Evoca line to stop the recording, and continue with the conference call.
Step 5: The recording is immediately saved to your Evoca account in the My Recordings dashboard in your My Home page

You also can start the recording session by first calling the Evoca number and then bring in the conference phone number using your three-way calling feature.
About participant consent
In some states in the U.S. and in certain countries you can proceed to record with single-party consent – just you. In other locales, you must get the consent of other callers. Check local laws that may require call participants to agree to the recording prior to starting the session. The Berkman Center for Internet and Society provides more information in its Citizen Media Law Project.
