I would recommend coming out with an update that will allow users to upload a list of phone numbers to send a text blast to.  With the current app you are able to enter one phone number, enter a comma, and then enter a second phone number.  This means if I have a list of 50 phone numbers I have to copy one phone number, paste it in RingCentral, enter a comma, and then I can add more numbers.  That means copying and pasting every single phone number individually as will as entering a comma every single time.  

I would recommend an option that will separate each phone number in a list if there is a semicolon differentiating the phone numbers.  This way I can create a list in excel with any quantity of phone numbers where each phone number has a semicolon at the end.  I would then simply copy this entire list and past the list in RingCentral.  RingCentral would see that every time there is a semicolon, there is a new phone number.  This would be very easy code to write and it would save hours of copying and pasting each individual number to RingCentral.

Andrew - if you just put phone numbers into Excel without the extra lines of text, and save it to CSV (comma separated value) format, wouldn't you be able to copy and paste into RC like you are asking to do?

No, because when you paste into RC, the entire list, even with the commas, are interpreted as one very long phone number.
