We have recently install the Polycom RingCentral system and I cannot seem to find any way to transfer a call directly into a recipient's voicemail without ringing their line using the phone itself (not the desktop app). Does anyone have instructions for how to do this?

Did this work for you? When I follow these instructions it disconnects.
What am I doing wrong?

Yep do it all the time.  What is your default transfer type on your phone?

For our system, after *0 and the extension, I also have to hit the "Send" soft key, then I can hang up and the call goes into their voicemail

This does not work for me. It just rings the recipient's phone, apologizes and then disconnects.

No. It just lists the same procedure written earlier in this thread which doesn't work.

Can you verify if you're using the Blind Transfer Type?

So, for instance, my default transfer type is Consultative. So if I want to transfer a call directly to voicemail I select the Transfer key. At this point, I see Blind located on my screen (this is telling me that I'm currently on Consultative and that I have the option to switch to Blind). So I press the key for Blind. Then I can transfer as per usual by pressing *0+Extension Number.If your default is set to Blind, then all you have to do is press Transfer, *0+Extension
