You can create 20 conference groups with up to six people in each. You can call the participants in a meeting by simply pressing a few buttons. 


Creating Conference Groups

Conference Recording


It is possible to record a phone conference on an SD memory card so you can listen to it later on. It is possible to record a call in progress and use the Konftel 300Wx as a dictaphone.


A flashing symbol appears on the display screen during recording. A beep is heard every 10 seconds so that other parties in the call know it is being recorded. The beep can be turned off. 


The document that is recorded on the SD card is named after the time at which the recording began (e.g. 14-35-01.wav) and is saved in a folder with the current date. This name can be changed after the recording has ended.

    • Press     during the call to put the call on hold.

      The LEDs change from blue to flashing red.
