The pascom Mobile App Phone
The phone option opens the telephone section of the pascom mobile app and provides the following functions which are explained below.
Enter the phone number you wish to call directly using the dialpad. There’s no need to worry about the syntax of the phone number, as this is automatically processed by the pascom mobile app. To start the call, press the green phone symbol. The number entry area also doubles as a search tool, allowing you to directly search for people. Note, this only searches the contact list and not the whole phone book.

Here you can now start a new call, send DTMF tones, mute the microphone, and use video and screen sharing or hang up the call via the red handset button.
Hold a Call
Putting an active Call on “Hold” has several advantages. Differently than with the muting of your microphone, the conversation partner hears music on hold and knows therefore that you e.g. hold consultation. In addition, you can call other contacts while the other party is on hold.
To “hold” a call, click on the pause/hold button in the call element". The caller is then grayed out.
Hold a Call
You can retrieve the waiting caller by clicking the pause button again.

You can also activate the GSM mode manually.
