RC has made it miserable to join or host a conference. If you have weekly meetings it seems justified to be able to have in "Presence" the ability to quickly host or join a meeting.  It seems this isn't possible, no problem I thought, I'll just add it to speed dial with a pause and the code... No pause in RC Huh? I don't care how you decide to tackle the problem. But seriously, I have to look up the codes every time even though they never change. Also, this is a reach ask. But, seeing how RC can tie into calendars,  RC could know who I have a meeting with and who the host is and just put a dynamically changing button to just press when the meeting starts, and hey even better, it could actually ring my desk phone when the host arrives so I can just pick up and be on the conference.

The ability to add pauses is a feature that is coming soon.

Not to sound derogatory, but I have heard the word "soon" regarding other R.C. issues in the past and that has meant a couple of weeks to 2 years to program the Polycom VVX 600.  Would you be more specific about what you mean when you use the word "Soon" ?

The roll out will take a few weeks so there's no solid ETA I can give at this time. But it will be finished by the end of the year so that customers can now use #, *, etc. when dialing and adding contacts

I also have the issue and have tried unsuccessfully to log it with Technical Support - including a 30 minute conversation which got nowhere!

My work around (which is still archaic) is to save my dial in number as Ring Central - ********* so the host access code is on the screen as I've joined the call. Fed up of having to scrawl it down on bits of paper every single conference.

Ring Central please change this! One-click join for the host direct from their own calendar invite has been around for years.
