Is there a way to intercom a group of people at once instead of individually?  Tried doing it with a call queue and did not work.  For example, there is a visitor to see everyone in the Finance office so the receptionist can intercom the Finance group to let people know that the visitor is here.

You can put them in a page group.  They won't be able to speak back handsfree though.

Thanks Brandon, but paging is the issue I'm trying to solve since there is a 25 device limit on a paging group.  As a non-profit we do not have the necessary funds to build out another paging system to work with RingCentral's system  Our former phone system gave us the ability to page all devices simultaneously (over 100 phones). Definitely need this feature in case of an emergency.

What kind of phones do you use?  I know you can create multicast page groups on Polycom phones and page an unlimited number.

We are using Polycom VVX311/411 phones.  I set up the multicast page group using a subset of phones and tested sending a page but it did not work.  Maybe I'm not sending the page the right way?
