Introduction to the RingCentral app

Updating Your Phone's Emergency Address

Note: Previously the RingCentral app supported the configuration of a single emergency location. To support changes in the law, RingCentral is rolling out support for configurable emergency response locations. While these locations can be configured in your online account, the rollout of this functionality for the RingCentral client applications will follow the this schedule:
  • For US digital lines, the 1st phase of the rollout hides all emergency response locations in the RingCentral app and 911 calls are automatically sent to the National Emergency Call Center. After Q1 2022, RingCentral will add location awareness for compatible apps, and the emergency response location list will become visible as described in this article.
  • For non-US digital lines, the emergency response locations will be available for selection.

Personal and company emergency response locations

Your personal and company emergency response locations will be visible under this section. These addresses are used to dispatch emergency responders when you make an emergency call. If you don’t provide an emergency response location, you will be limited to making calls only to extensions in your organization. You can define your own emergency response locations, up to a maximum of 20 locations. Your personal emergency response locations might be a home office, a hotel or any company location where the administrator may not have defined a common shared emergency response location.
If you are an SMB customer, you will be asked to review and complete your user profile after activating your user account. After activating your account, you can still update your regional settings in the Settings menu of the RingCentral app. Not sure which customer you are? Click here to learn more.
