  1. Account type  (U.S.)

  2. A brief description of the business :Public Relations and Communications

  3. A high level description of the product or feature being requested:

    For RingCentral meetings for Outlook: it would be best if the system will not allow the user to schedule a meeting at the same time and date since they are not allowed to Start them at the same time or Vice Versa if the users are allowed to schedule multiple Meetings with Same date and time, system should allow them to Start these at the same time.

    In addition, if it is possible to sync the setup, wherein if a Meeting is Cancelled in the Outlook Calendar it should be deleted in the Meetings App too.

  4. A typical use case scenario explaining how your business would use the feature:

    Right now, Users thought that when they scheduled multiple meetings with same date and time they can start it as is but that is not the case, you will be needing to end the first meeting before you can start another meeting. It would be beneficial to not allow the users schedule another meeting for a specified time that is already scheduled,so they'll know that it can't be done or it is not possible to have 2 or more Meetings at the same time.

  5. Benefit of such feature:

    Prevent confusion and the Hope that it would be possible to start multiple Meetings at the same time, where in fact it is not at the moment.

  6. Number of Users and/or Digital Lines: 186

It would actually be very beneficial to be the host of multiple meetings without having to end a meeting for all. I would love if that is something you can implement going forward. I work at a treatment center and I need to be the host of multiple meetings and currently I am unable to do so.

I agree with Niki.  We have a lot of end users wanting to start simultaneous meetings as a host at the same time.

When we had WebEx, were able to do this.
