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.

This is pretty amazing.  Seriously 3 years and nothing?  for a simple and critical feature?  rather disappointed RC.

You may want to take a look at an attendant console.  Bridge Operator Console provides these features for users, and is designed for front desk works, making it superior to a desk phone.

Doug, that looks promising. We are in need of a way to be able to do a true warm transfer where the three parties are on the call at the same time and then the operator can drop off after the call is established. Currently the Ringcentral SoftPhone app does not support it.
Can the Bridge operator Console provide that capability for our multiple users?

We are working with RC to get conferencing capability in the WebRTC SDK, then we could absolutely do it.  Also as a parallel track, they are rolling out the telephony API in beta, which allows us to control a phone.  So in the near future we can do it either way I hope. :-)

RingCentral app - Mobile iOS & Android

"Warm Transfer: In addition to Transfer Now (direct transfer), users now have the option to Ask First (warm transfer) or send to Voicemail when transferring calls."

Due in an upcoming release I believe.

How do we perform a warm transfer using the desktop?  We haven't been able to figure this out. Thanks.

Correct, Richard.  Warm Trasfer is not available on the RC Phone mobile app.  Is that happening soon?

Hi Shelly, the RC Phone Mobile app is actually set to be retired by the end of the year. You can learn more about this transition here.

Hi Saadet,

Any idea when it will be available on BT Cloud Phone? We obviously have a large number of users on it right now, and it would be a really handy feature.

Kind Regards,
