If you would like the option to disable the tone that occurs when you page a group, please vote :) Currently the tone is a bit loud and it would be preferable that only the pager's message is heard

The paging tone is not just a bit loud, it's extremely loud.   It's so startling that it makes the paging feature unusable.  Anyone sitting near an overhead speaker will jump out of their skin every time there is a page.   Please give us the option to turn the tone volume down, or disable it completely.

Agree the option to turn down and or off would be great.

Yes please add something to turn this off. No one wants to hear a beep on an overhead page prior to hearing the message.

This is not a new issue see image of post from 4yrs ago.  Something needs to get done at a fast rate - currently we cannot shutdown our old system because of the paging issue.

Any idea how many votes these things have to get to be noticed & actually resolved by RingCentral?

Is this issue anywhere near being resolved? It has made our paging system almost unusable...

Hi Mike, it's not on the roadmap at the moment. If that changes, I'll post an update here :)

The worst part of all of this is most
If not all valcom systems have a “pre announce tone” option so it’s a super pointlessness option. You would be better having this beep disabled and it would a lot less customers upset than having it on by default.
