Problem: The type of headset you have states it can be conferenced together on calls with more than one headset to the same base.

Poly, Jabra, and Yealink headsets all have the ability to conference together more than one unit to a single base station for training purposes. We’ll go over a few of the most common models, and how to conference multiple headsets together.

Solutions:

Poly Savi Headsets-

W8200 & S8200 Office series:

Join Savi headsets automatically-

  • While on a call, place the guest headset into the primary user’s charging cradle. The base subscription LED flashes green.
  • The primary user will hear a request “Conference requested”. To accept the request, press the primary user’s headset Call button. The base subscription LED turns solid yellow to indicate conference call mode. View conference call status by going to Plantronics Hub > About > Connections > Conferenced headsets.

Join Savi headsets manually-

  • While on a call, press the base subscription button. The base subscription LED flashes yellow and green.
  • Hold the guest headset’s Volume up until the headset LED turns on.
  • The primary user will hear a request “Conference requested”. To accept the request, press the primary user’s headset Call button. The base subscription LED turns solid yellow to indicate conference call mode. View conference call status by going to Plantronics Hub > About > Connections > Conferenced headsets.

S7200/7300 series:

Join Savi headsets automatically (same headset type only)-

  • While on a call, place the guest headset into the primary user’s charging cradle. The base subscription LED flashes.
  • The primary user hears a triple tone in their headset indicating a conference request. To accept the request, press the primary user’s headset Call button within 10 seconds.
  • If the process fails or times out because the guest’s Call button is not pressed within 10 seconds, the guest subscription is terminated, and the guest hears an error tone.
