Please add a "Warm Transfer" button to the mobile app so it works/looks like the Desktop app shown below. 

This way you don't have to use the sequence ##*1+ 10 digit number to perform a warm transfer.

I have both an android phone and an iPhone that I use for the mobile app. However, one of the features I want to use is not available which is the warm transfer. I hope you make it available soon as it will be a great help for us dealing with our own customers. Thank you

You have over 976 topics opened for warm transfer issues on mobile app. Appears I am not the only one affected. 

We have senior reps out in the field who need to be able to do warm transfers and or stay on the call with our office support staff.  As of now your proposed warm transfer option ##* - quick dial # does not work as intended. 

Our goal is to have the warm transfer working from the mobile app and with calls on the mobile phone.

Having a warm transfer button for the mobile app would be a fantastic tool for us. It would smooth out the rough edges that we now have to deal within RingCentral and make us look and sound like one of the big person companies we're competing with. Hopefully, this is a feature that will be available soon.

it would certainly make cells act a lot more like a deskset which would be more seamless of a learning curve between softphone and cell applications.

We have a U.S. Business account and have 5 users. I need to be able to do a warm transfer from my mobile app to the other extensions. At the moment the mobile app is way different from my desk phone where all I have to hit is transfer, the extensions and then I speak with my colleague before transferring the caller. 

It would be nice it when I hit transfer on the mobile app that it maybe gave me an option to do a warm transfer and I could do basically the same steps as my desk phone. 

As of now all I can do is park the call or place on hold then call my colleague tell them the details, hang up and then do a "cold transfer". That is way too many steps to have a caller waiting.

Having this app work similar to the desk phone would give our company more freedom to do business on the go.

also it would be nice to have a "warm" transfer where both employees and the client are on the line, and a transfer where the employees are on the line without the client (like when you "flip" the call to yourself).

Our company receptionist really needs this feature, we had it with our old telephone system and miss it a lot.

I seriously hope we get this feature available soon. A lot of people badly need this option to do a warm transfer just like the deskphones.

IMO (and lots of other people's too, it seems) this is an extraordinary omission. How is it not a priority for RC to plug this gap in the functionality of the iPhone app? It makes it needlessly difficult to transfer an incoming call in a professional fashion if you're using the iPhone app and are not physically in the same room as the person you need to transfer to.

"My colleague X would be the best person to speak to about that. I'm now going to blindly toss your call in their direction and hope that: a) they're able to pick up the phone at this precise moment (or, if not, that you won't mind being dumped to voicemail); b) you have time to spare and don't mind repeating yourself (because you'll need to tell X who you are and what you want, despite having just spent a couple of minutes tell me the same thing)."

We are waiting for two years and nothing was done.... Really disappointing... Appears that they don't care about their clients... I don't think we will be renewing this service with them.

I'd like to add ourselves to the long list users waiting for the Warm Transfer on the RC mobile app (IOS).

Hey Cecile, looks like we are going to be adding a Warm Transfer Button within our Unified App - However, I still don't have an ETA on when that will happen

Warm transfer across all access points is critical functionality. I almost dropped us from Ring Central when I learned this was not standard on mobile app and browser extension softphones. We are currently using the Hold--->Parallel Call--->Cold Transfer option as a stopgap but we need a real fix.

Please make sure app AND Chrome extension fixes are on your roadmap.

Thank you!
