Ring Central Soft Phone-URL Launch

We created an url which opens when we receive a phone call to our Ring Central soft phone. But when we restart the computer the url is missing. We spoke to Ring Central customer service and they explain that is normal. It will not keep the url in the softphone. So our only solution is to re-paste the url everyday in the soft phone.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled On "Launch an external app or a URL on incoming call" allow "Execute command" to .... In the RingCentral Phone application on Windows, there is no option to save the execute command so users have to re-enter it every time the app restarts. This is a nuisance for those of us wanting the execute command to consistently run for our employees.

In Settings->Calls->Incoming, you have the option to turn on "Launch an external app or a URL on incoming call" and then you are able to enter the "Execute command". BUT you're not able to save it. So every morning our users need to enter the "Execute command".

I've seen this issue raised in many different ways here in the community but I wanted to spell it out so that perhaps more people will find this issue and "upvote" it so that it actually gets addressed. This is something that's obvious and is actually detrimental to the existing feature. More of a glitch in the code than a missing feature.

Customer Service was able to fix our problem with the url disappearing. It seems we still had an old version of the softphone and we had to purge our data.

This is happening to me too. It will work all day long, but the very next day when my sales team comes back to the office the "Execute command" field goes blank. I have a file path with command line arguments in there. I will make sure everyone is up to date and get back.

I've had to purge data, uninstall Ring Central, restart computer, reinstall Ring Central multiple times before I got it to stick. And I've done this with a dozen PC's. The purge data then logout & restart has never worked for me.

And you are also on the latest RC softphone version?

We typically have to wait many weeks before they release the .MSI file so we can test it before we roll it out to the entire company. Otherwise, it is all or nothing: All users get prompted for update or no one can update at all, including admins. Another RC fail.

Luckily we have not experienced any issues with allowing our users to do the updates. We just have a screen pop executable that queries our management system db, once I've gotten it to stick none of the RC updates have broken it. Stability-wise we've just been lucky so far that an update hasn't been problematic. I would hate to be rolling back all our PC's at the same time thousands of other RC users are doing so, tech support would be non-existent for a period.

Our sales center, which is a simultaneous ring call queue, can't use RC's incoming call pop up notification because it removes the cursor from whatever each user is doing. They can't even type an email or enter an order without it interrupting their work, so I had to build one for them myself, hence, my problem with the disappearing command line argument field. RC confirmed they would fix this and make it call center friendly like 8 months ago and they keep pushing it back (now it will supposedly be released in February). I built mine with custom functions and it only took a couple of days. I just don't understand why it is so difficult for RC to address and fix small, common sense issues.

I've been looking for this exact thread.
Same behavior here: upon computer restart, the "Execute command:" field is erased and we have to reenter it.
Every day.

I opened a case for this on 1/9/2019. It's now 1/21/2019, and I still haven't heard a thing.

Can you verify the case number for me?

Case Number: 08115137

I spoke to Tier 1 on the 9th and was advised to email the dev team. So I did, and that's pretty much it.

Hmmm...sorry they never responded :/

See if this helps!  Please try adding that URL, then before signing out, quit the softphone with [Ctrl] + Q. Then see if it saves upon signing back in.

Keep me posted!

I don't know why there is no "save" button in the option menu or why "some" of the settings are not save automatically while you change it, but for the command/URL scenario opening the case is not needed. The only thing you have to do after entering the command or URL is to close the settings window and then "log out" from the application. The settings are saved then and next time you log in it should be there. Closing the application using X from the top corner of the window or restarting the workstation will just "kill" the application without the settings being saved.

Hey Rob! So I spoke with my Engineering Team and they cannot replicate the issue. The URL should stay put. I think it's being rude and wonky for you. So! Please open a case, we will need to get debug logs in order to further investigate. It is not normal behavior to lose the link. 

Also, please keep me updated! Feel free to post your case number here and let me know if you're having any issues getting the help you need :)
