We're a K-12 private school on the RingCentral Office 100 line plan, with several paging groups setup for Middle School classrooms, elementary classrooms, and high school classrooms.  Our main office staff uses the paging feature to make daily announcements to these paging groups, but they have to record the message live while in the busy office.  

Is there a way to record the message, preview it, then submit it for paging?  
This would cut down on errors and distractions.  Obviously, the live paging feature is great and shouldn't be removed from the system due to emergency situations.

The challenge is the play back but - you can record a message (from several areas in your account account) and then export the final product to a .wav file, and play the .wav file as your announcement.  Of course, there is a duration limitation and I don't know how long those daily announcements are.
Do you mean just play the .wav through a computer's speakers while holding the handset up to it?

There are also manufacturers that make specific systems to make announcements, with plenty of bells and whistles, than can be interfaced to your RC account in order to dial a page group(s).  They run anywhere from $3K to $15K depending on the specific bells and whistles, plus labor.
