does anyone know if you can conference in multiple parties on a single line conference (polycom) phone on a Nortel. The phone is attached to an ASM port.

Only three party. Try change lines to 3 way calling.

Once you have 3 way calling, you use the [Flash] button on the Polycom as you would the [Link] button on a Norstar phone.

If you dial an access code [9] to get an outside line on the Polycom you might have to have all the lines converted to "centrex/centranet" to get 3 way calling.

(Speaking of Rube Goldberg)...As a workaround, couldn't you have one/two other phones in the office initiate the conference call then conference-in the Polycom? Might be a little "clunky", but it's free.

I should clarify. I need the conference phone, and two outside parties conferenced in. I know you can do this with the Nortel branded polycom which connects to the digital station port. I just didn't know if you could do it with a standard single polycom by using the hookflash and grabbing another line.

You need two intercom paths for a conference call, no?

Single line phone here..no link button. I think I will just get the customer to go with a conference bridge.

If you're good, Link = Flash = pressing hookswitch button down briefly, then releasing.
