RingCentral Service Support for COVID-19

Receiving a busy signal or connection errors?

You may have noticed a busy signal, a delay in connecting, or an error when attempting to reach some conference lines. Because of the influx of customers working from home, the public communications infrastructure is being affected by some carriers experiencing capacity issues. We are working closely with our partners and those carriers and proactively adding capacity to prevent any future connection issues.
Please find below a few suggested best practices should you experience any challenges.

Having trouble connecting or completing a call?

Some users may have difficulty joining a meeting by dial in number. The traditional telephone system (PSTN) is highly utilized at this time, and you may experience a fast busy signal when dialing into meetings.
Three tips to improve the meeting experience:
  • Connect to the RingCentral mobile or desktop app and use Computer Audio instead of a phone call.
  • If local Wi-Fi/Internet is not reliable enough, use the “Call Me” feature to have RingCentral initiate the connection and improve PSTN connection reliability.
  • Make use of one of the alternate numbers provided on the meeting as issues are primarily episodic.

Are you having difficulties joining or accessing RingCentral Meetings?

Users in back-to-back meetings, or in meetings in which the “Enable join before host” setting is off, may experience delays during peak usage times. Meetings will start after this delay.
Best practice:
  • If your business conditions allow, you can mitigate this issue by clicking the “Enable join before host” check box when scheduling a new meeting or editing an existing one.
We are actively working on reducing or eliminating delay in joining meetings. Please see our Service Status site at https://support.ringcentral.com/s/status for further information and updates as they become available. In addition, sign up for service status notifications for ongoing updates.
We have also added US and Canadian numbers to combat slower connection times. Find all the teleconferencing lines here: https://meetings.ringcentral.com/teleconference.html.
