I would like to see Spell Check added to the text messenger on the desktop version of Ring Central. Seems like a no brainer to me, especially for my business account. Thanks and please advise.

Thanks, lets get this featured ADDED ASAP!, why, because most of America can't spell.

Yes, this needs to be added ASAP.  Even the tech chat for RC has it.

10000% agree with this statement. Cant believe we are still talking about spell check in 2019? come on Ring Central.

Has anyone tried 3rd party spell checking apps? I can find ones that will work with Safari but not the ring central desktop app.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Spell check on Mac desktop app.

I have an iPhone 6 plus and a Mac computer with Yosemite 10.10.5 and the text messaging on the iPhone works but not on the Mac desktop version.  I thought it worked on both before I upgraded to the new 8.3.5.24028 (64-bit) but, I am not sure. 

Either way it seems if the iPhone has it the Mac should have it too.  Can you tell me if it should have it or if I have an isolated issue please.  Also, if it does not have it can you add it soon? 

Thank you

I Gizzard,  I can't promise if, or when the desktop app will have a spell check feature.  I can definitely understand why some users would want it.   One other thing to consider is that we get hundreds of feature requests and it's impossible to implement everything.  We get frequent complaints from users commenting how large and memory intensive the program is and how much of a strain it is on some computers, and that it becomes laggy, or causes other applications to lag.

As far as the spell check in this forum, the forum doesn't actually have a spell check, but if you are using any modern web browser, the what you are seeing is the spell check functionality built right into the web browser.

Now... one positive thing to look forward to is that as all the RingCentral apps (Glip) become more tightly integrated (there is a web version of Glip) which leverages the built in browser spell check..... so stay tuned.

I hope this helps!

I agree. my entire office is frustrated that there is NO spell check on the Mac Desktop Version of Ring Central. Very UN-Professional. Especially for a paid service. PLEASE PLEASE make this feature available. OR please tell us how to get it to spell check with the internal OS? Thanks and please advise

A couple solutions would be to send your SMS messages via the Chrome extension or the Outlook extension. Both of those leverage the underlying application/browser's spell check.

See:  RingCentral for Outlook
Currently not available for Mac.  RingCentral for Outlook is available for all RingCentral Office® customers. Outlook 2013 or later are supported. Windows® 7 (or later) operating systems are required.

Please add the spellcheck into the texting feature - it is currently everywhere else and is much more professional and saves a lot of time for my staff

this has been going on for over  a year!! PLEASE PLEASE intergrate this option into the desktop version. this should be soo simple for RC to do..heck there is Spell check in this window!
 
I have requested this as a business owner for over a year and always told its imminent and easy - nothing.... Makes for frustrating texting errors to our patients and medical professionals.  I cant imagine why it would be difficult to add - its very basic but continues to be ignored

Totally agree. been one year of requests, with nothing!  I have over 100 buisness accounts that we use this for..everyone has spelling errors. so un-pro. come oN RC step it up!

Hi Gizzard,   I don't have any ETA on adding spell check to the desktop app, but, we might have another solution for you but we need to find out a few things.  I'll have to email you direct, so please watch your email.

The lack of a spell check feature in the RingCentral  Phone for Windows is ridiculous!  Even if you compromised on size by just alerting to misspells without having the word suggestions.
The text messaging / phone from one number available on my desktop was the main reason I opted for RingCentral.  This is very disappointing!!!  It's 2018!

TOTALLY AGREE!! same with the Macintosh Desktop Version!! been waiting on this update for 2 years now.. EVERYONE has spell check except Ring Central. PLEASE PLEASE listen to the community and fix this. Thanks! speaking for 200+ employees at my company.
Yes... so many times I have put in a request with every new Ring Central manager I get (why so many changes?).... and nothing. 
Even this chat box for suggestions and comments has spellcheck!!! 
Obviously they don't care because the tech on this is rudimentary and basic in the industry.  Causes us so much extra work and errors from my employees... I'm afraid if they dont fix this soon we will be going to a competitor with similar rates and identical services.... 
Time to get this done Ring Central.  Enough is enough.

Any update on when this feature will be added?  It doesn't appear that your listening to your customer base.  This is a wanted AND a needed feature.

Hi Carrie Ann Kroft, 

Spell check isn't available in the RC Phone desktop app, however, it is available on the RC (Glip) app which you can SMS from.

Our users do not use RC (Glip).  They use the RC Desktop Application.  When will spell check be added to that?

Saadet I know I speak for all of us on here that this is truly unfortunate and unacceptable.  Not to have basic spellcheck in your primary app is inferior product quality and crap design.  So we should all interpret "not given an ETA" to mean this feature is not even considered essential enough to be on someone's "to do list"? As others have said this is "ridiculous", "insane",  "a big mistake", and "a no-brainer"!!!

Windows already has a built-in spell checker. Shouldn't be too difficult to integrate it into the desktop app.

RC coders seem to always be focused on things that no one cares about. Either they don't have the knowledge to code what the users want, or management isn't directing them to work on what users want. Either way, it's a sad lose/lose situation that they've created.

Wow!!  If you were my customer, I would listen.  200 phones!!  Has tech support improved over time?  We just went live with RC yesterday and so far so good.  We were with Star2Star and they continued with the bait and switch billing; so, we fired them.

We MUST have spell check in SMS. I simply can't believe with today's technology, that the current SMS client (as of 4/1/19) does not have a spell check feature in it when pretty much every other SMS client in the world does. It simply can't be that hard. I beg you!!

I AGREE 1000%%%.. being trying for almost 3 years now. My company has over 150+ ring Central #'s and no freaking spell check on the desktop APP. we might need to cancel our entire business account over this. Oh hey look...this window Im typing in even has Splel Ceheck  .............

Yeah...I agree!! This is the most fundamental feature that is in pretty much every app. With all the amazing things RingCentral does do and the compliments I get from people calling my business and saying "Hey, what phone system do you have?", I can't believe we have to even ask for spell check. I almost said ask for this feature but it shouldn't be listed as a feature but a MUST have...can't do business WITHOUT type of thing!

Hi Felicia,

We are in the process of retiring the RC Phone mobile app - you can learn more about that here. The RC Phone desktop app will follow suit later next year (no ETA yet) once we've reached feature parity with the RingCentral app. Great news, the RingCentral app does have spell check in it :)
