On a 7970 phone, if two calls come in on the same line button, how is it possible to conference the two calls together?
If you're already on a call, it's easy to hit 'CONF' then dial the new number and bridge all parties.
Unfortunately when one call is on hold and you press conf on the live call, it immediately prompts to enter a new number, there is no way to select the other line that's on hold and add to a conference.
Enabling meet me on the system automatically enabled the select/join buttons using the default key profile. Creating a new template with the hold state and join/select keys improved the user experience and ease of bridging.
