Open URL or External Application

Hello. I would like RingCentral to launch my CRM (Solve360) when the phone rings. Where do I find the setting to launch an external app or open a URL on an incoming call?

Hi Mike,

I don't seem to have the gear. I'm on a Mac and my Softphone is Build 604.050.00.  I can get to General from the menu option Preferences, but there is no option to launch an external app.

That looks to me like  the old version.  

You should install "Ring Central for Mac".  

Then you add:  
open "https://secure.solve360.com/phonenumber/%P"

to the Gear>General>Execute Command

Hi Adrian,  when you open your softphone, click the Settings (small gear wheel) icon on the top right corner. Next click the General tab on the left side. Look just to the right of where it says " Launch an external app or URL on incoming call"  and you'll see an on/off button. 

Here's a link to the help topic. Sorry the picture is a little outdated but the process is very much the same.  PC Incoming Call Notification
