I'd like my users to be able to answer multiple incoming calls to a main number call group even if they are currently connected on a call. They should be able to place the current call on hold and answer another call. Most of my locations have just a few employees who are members of the group but are not always available. There are scenarios where just one person is available to answer calls for the main number group.
I also foolishly assumed that one could enter contacts in the RingCentral desktop app and they would sync to the desk phone. I am still incredulous that such an obvious feature does not exist.
The lack of these two features has really soured my usage of RingCentral, and after only three weeks, I am exploring other options. Using RingCentral should be intuitive. Any time it is not, it is a failure on RingCentral's part. Your customers all have businesses to run. We can ill afford wasting time trying to develop work arounds for phone system features that should be baked into the product. Please address these deficiencies immediately!
wait time on call queue and continues flow of calls.
have a call queue with 7 members. and whats happening is that if 2 available member is on a call.
it will ring the 5 available members which is just fine but what we wanted to
happen is that if the 5 available ext did not answer that call and one of the
member that is on a active call ended the call we wants that active caller's phone
to also ring
When I am on a call in the queue, and a new call comes in, I am unable to answer the new incoming call (even if I disconnect or place the original call on hold). When I press an open line, I only get a dial tone.
Is there a way to have users phones ring or beep or something for call queue calls even while they are on the phone?
Many times we would prefer to quickly wrap up the current call and pickup the new call rather than having it flow to another agent. At night we may only have one agent available and if they are on the phone the caller waits in queue until they finish or the callers end up having to leave a voicemail. I would like to at least give them the option to place the first caller on hold and pickup the new call.
Is there something we should be using besides call queues to set this up? I considered creating an extension but then it looks like the only option is to forward it to other desk phones or outside numbers, not just to another extension.
