How do you set up a contact on a Motorola Moto G7 Power to dial in with pauses to a conference call?

I'm helping a colleague with her phone. We're all working remotely and we are dialing in for conference calls. To dial in, one enters 3 numbers (the phone number, the access code and #, then 1 to confirm. I have my phone (Pixel 4) set up with a contact so that this happens all with one press. It looks like this in the contacts entry: 5551234567, 987654#, 1

To do this, the Pixel 4 has a second screen on the dialer with more characters:

Pixel 4 dialer

The dialer on the Motorola looks like this:

I don't see a second screen access, a comma, a pause or anything to string the numbers together.

In most standard dialers you have to type in at least one number or other character before left to the number-to-be-dialed a 3 dots menu appears that has an entry to Add 2-sec pause.

By selecting Add 2-sec pause a comma (,) is appended to the number-to-be-dialed.
