I'd like to call another (internal) RingCentral user via RingOut. (using serviceweb). If I put in their extension, I get an error. If I put their full direct line, it phones my mobile but when I press one to connect, it disconnects. How do you make 'internal' calls with RingOut? Is it possible?

Hello Paul,

I tested this out with the RingCentral for Windows (softphone) application and it worked just fine.

What is the error that you are getting? Have you tried turning off the option to press one to connect the call?

Hello Paul,

I see! I was able to replicate the issue. Let me get back to you on why this is occurring.

Hello Paul,

Thank you for being so patient. When it comes to using the RingOut option in service web to dial an extension, it is not currently supported. That's why it doesn't work.

Regarding the issue when dialing the full DID, that is weird behavior. We would need to troubleshoot with you live on that one in order to collect call examples, etc.

I would suggest calling into support at 888-898-4591, Option 3 or you could open up a web case here:

Clicking open case didn't take me to the case reporting page for some reason (maybe because I'm on a Chromebook?)

Quite possible. Clicking on the button brings you to where you will log into your RingCentral account and then it will bring you to where you can fill out the web case information. I just tested to verify.

It takes me to https://service.ringcentral.com/company/index.html?postSSOLogin=true

Once I find the link, I'll report a bug for that too ;)
