Can you tell us specifically which app you are using? RingCentral meetings? RingCentral for Desktop (are you texting?) ? 

If you are using Glip, Glip has a built in spell check which displays the red squiggly line under misspelled words. 

The Meetings and softphone desktop apps do not have a spell check setting.

Hi LM,

It turns out that the RingCentral Phone app on Desktop does not have the ability to do spellcheck at this time. If you would use this feature a lot you can switch to using the RingCentral for Google plugin on the Google Chrome web browser. This plugin will use the built-in spellchecking abilities of the web browser.

If you'd like to request this feature, head over to the idea post for this feature and vote for it at the top of the page. Here's a link to idea post: Add Spell Check in the desktop version of the text messenger window.
