RingME - passing phone number and dialing directly from first click on my site

We would like to use a RingME button ( http://success.ringcentral.com/articles/RC_Knowledge_Article/How-to-setup-a-Ring-Me-button-on-my-pag...) but instead of having the customer enter his/her phone number in a new screen, we would like to pass the phone number for customers who are logged into our website on a post or a get variable directly to the ringcentral server or at least to the new window and dial to make it easier for the customer.

How can we get that done?

There are always multiple ways to achieve these types of use-cases, but here is how I would approach this situation...

Use the RingCentral JS SDK in your Website's Client, and pre-populate with your authenticated user's phone number:
 // Initialize the SDK var sdk = new RingCentral.SDK({     server: 'https://platform.ringcentral.com',     appKey: 'yourAppKey',     appSecret: 'yourAppSecret' });  // Assign the RingCentral Platform Singleton var platform = sdk.platform();  // Example function to implement ad-hoc style token managament // Authenticate to RingCentral and make a phone call using supplied number function preformattedRingOut(endUserPhoneNumber) {     if(!endUserPhoneNumber) {         // Error handling for this sanity check     }     // Authenticate and ringout     platform.login({             username: '<REPLACE_WITH_PHONE_NUMBER>', // Number of destination user account or admin<br>            extension: '', // leave blank if direct number is used<br>            password: '<REPLACE_WITH_ASSOCIATED_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD>'<br>        })<br>        .post('/account/~/extension/~/ringout', {<br>            from: {phoneNumber: String(endUserPhoneNumber)},<br>            to: {phoneNumber: String(<REPLACE_WITH_DESTINATION_NUMBER)},             callerId: {phoneNumber: 'endUserPhoneNumber'}, // optional,             playPrompt: false // optional<br>        .then(function(ajax) {<br>            // Application logging<br>        })<br>        .catch(function(e) {<br>            alert(e.message  || 'Server cannot authorize user');<br>        });<br>}  You can find a more comprehensive example of using RingOut with the RingCentral JS SDK here: <a href="https://github.com/ringcentral/ringcentral-js#making-telephony-calls">https://github.com/ringcentral/ringcentral-js#making-telephony-calls</a>
