Users with call delegation permissions, such as Executive Assistants, who need to manage conference calls on behalf of another user, will be able to manage participants of active conference calls (add/remove, mute/unmute), invite other participants, or add new participants directly to the conference.
Shared line enhancement
Admins will be able to provision an executive’s line to the hard phones of one or more executive assistants, allowing them to manage calls on the executive’s behalf.
RingCentral Persist will support RingCentral Phone for Desktop and common phones. Customers who have multiple gateways in a physical location can now create and manage gateway groups to enable extension-extension calls between users. Users can dial 611 during an outage to reach RingCentral Customer Support over PSTN. In addition to some administrative improvements (syslog, trigger reboot/resync, and e.164 format support), support has been added for four new countries: Australia, Ireland, France, and the Netherlands.
For admins who need to help their end-users resolve account lockout issues, this feature will help them unlock accounts without a password change.
Billing page enhancements
The new billing pages will make it much easier to find important billing information and enables users to drill down into specific details.
Email sync from user details to notifications basic settings
This feature will automatically sync the email from User Details to the Notifications Basic Settings email box. This means that users can receive voicemails, SMS, and other notifications without an admin having to manually change the data in multiple places.
Fax cover page callback number
This feature will enable users to customize the Phone Number (a.k.a. voice callback number) on the cover page of outbound faxes.
Admin portal UI update
We’re excited to announce a more modern and intuitive user interface in our admin portal that will provide a better user experience and accessibility support.
Admins will be able to access our real-time status site directly from the admin portal tool menu. In addition, admins will be able to sign any RingCentral user up for email and/or SMS notifications about service impacting issues.
An improved layout and user experience for templates will be rolled out, and new templates will be available.
