Desktop & web

Joining a meeting in the RingCentral app desktop and
web | RingCentral app

The RingCentral app makes joining a meeting simple. You can easily start, join, and schedule a meeting all within the Video interface, so there’s no need to leave the app to join a meeting. Additionally, when it’s time to join a scheduled meeting, the app will notify you when a meeting has started, ensuring you’re always on time for your meeting. 
 
You can join a meeting that has been scheduled either by you or another user in the RingCentral app. Additionally, you can also sync your Outlook or Google calendar with the RingCentral app so all your scheduled meetings are in one place, allowing you to join any meeting without leaving the app. To learn more about connecting your calendar, visit Connecting your Microsoft or Google calendar in the RingCentral app desktop and web.
 
If you have synced your calendar, scheduled meetings will appear in the Meetings page, which acts as the homepage of the Video interface. When you navigate to this page, you can join a scheduled meeting in one of two ways. Let’s review these methods below.

Joining a meeting

There are several ways to join a meeting:
  • By clicking the Join button via the meetings dashboard
  • By clicking the Join next to a scheduled meeting in your meetings calendar
  • By clicking the Join button via the meetings dashboard, then selecting a recent meeting

Dialing in to a meeting

In addition to joining a meeting, you can also dial in to a meeting using the RingCentral desktop or web app. Please note that dialing in to a meeting will not allow you to have a camera turned on, nor will you be able to view if someone is sharing their screen. 
 
Also note that you must have phone features enabled at the company account level in order to use this feature.

1. Navigate to Video via the left-hand navigation bar
2. Hover your mouse over a scheduled meeting and click the More kebab icon that appears a far right
3. Click the Dial in option via the dropdown menu
Once you select the Dial in button, your dial pad will open and the system will dial the number and access code associated with the meeting.
