Can I use the TerraSwarm Teleconference number for intra-group calls?

The TerraSwarm Teleconference account is for the use of center staff for large TerraSwarm-wide calls. It is expected that PIs will have a teleconference number of their own for use.
  1. The number supports only one call at a time, so two different groups cannot have a call at the same time on the same number.
  2. Shared conference call numbers don't work, they get shared too widely.
