earlier versions of desktop app have a drop down field that allows you to switch caller ID for text messages (SMS).  in verison 8.0.4 it is gone and test support said it has been removed.  THIS NEEDS TO BE ADDED IN.  Why was this removed?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled RC Phone - Caller ID SMS for all user extensions.

It would benefit certain business that communicate with clients (through RC phone SMS feature) to allow multiple users to share the main line number as the outgoing caller ID. 

For example, a front-desk staffer (logged into RC Phone) sends a reminder message to a client about their meeting time. Then once they leave a back office assistant send a message (thru RC Phone) about a follow up survey link/appointment/etc. All messages go through the main number.

I need to be able to have the main number as a caller ID to all the extensions without changing the operator any more

We found "HeyMarket" a lot better suited for getting company text messages and forwarding the call through to RingCentral. I'd love to be 100% through RingCentral, but they have made it clear that after years this is not a priority for them.

I voted for this one. I hope this will be possible in the future soon. Maybe tomorrow will be cool.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Outbound SMS caller ID main number.

We need to send SMS messages using the company main phone number as
callerID. Because our operator extension is a call group rather than an
individual, no one in our office can do that.
When a call group is
used as the operator extension, all members of the group should be able
to send SMS using the main company number. In fact, they should be able
to choose any company number as we have different phone numbers for
different offices.
Also, as a phone system admin, I should be able to
set my outbound caller ID to the main company number just for testing
purposes & one time things.

I'm being told the Outbound Caller ID for Texts feature does work on the new RC desktop app. However, it does not work at all for me. Are you also unable to get it to work?

Outbound caller ID works for texts as long as the only number you want to use is your DID...

Ridiculous. On the older RingCentral Phone desktop app, I can select my Main Company number and text using it's Outbound ID just fine. I can also select my Main Company number for Outbound ID texting on the new RC desktop app... it just doesn't work.

Hello,

Maybe this will make more sense with the term "shared inbox" for text messages. 

Ringcentral does not have any shared inbox feature.

We need this feature as well, urgently! I suggested this 2 years ago as well.
Right now, since I am the Super-Admin, only I can send text messages from various company numbers. When another user needs to send a text message out to a client it needs to show our company number and not a random direct number of that said user.
It is working for a super admin, why not for everyone? We can place calls with different numbers, why not also send and receive text the same way?
