I just re-read your question and want to make sure I understand.  When you say "conference feature" are you referring to RC meetings or the actual Conference feature?

I am aware of the RC Meetings set up. I am stating when I am currently on a phone call with a colleague, how can I add a third person to our call without having to use the RC Meetings or set up a conference. Similar to if I was on my cell phone and I wanted to add a third caller to the call.

1.
With the first person on one of your lines
2. Press More and then Confrnc. The active call is held.  
3. Call the second person.
4. When the second person answers, press More and then Confrnc to join everyone in a conference.

Oh boy, I have no idea!  Maybe transfer them into the conference bridge and meet them there (?)... Let's see if anyone Chimes in with their thoughts.

Take a look at our guide for active call controls. There is a section on "Adding a User to a Multi-way Conference Call".

Let us know if it ends up working out for you.

Thank you I did find the information. Click the "+" icon, dial the extension of the person you want to add, then when they answer, click the "+" again on their call.
