Hello Everyone,

We have important information to share regarding Apple’s upcoming Mac Mojave 10.14 operating system update.

On September 24, 2018 Apple is releasing an update to its Mac operating system that will impact some functionality of the RingCentral Meetings solution for Mac. We are committed to resolving these issues promptly. Please review our Knowledge Base article for more details.

In the meantime, remaining on a prior version of the Mac OS will ensure the best user experience with RingCentral Meetings.

Should you have any questions, please click here to contact Global Support.

This is good info, but I suppose only a very small percentage of users will see this here.  Do you know if this warning is going out to all users?  It probably should even though again only a small percentage probably use MacOS..

Hi, Brandon! 

Very good thoughts! Our entire team uses Mac OS and we did receive this via email straight from RingCentral.

We have a number of Mac users using RC Meetings on a daily basis.  Where should I be watching to get updates on fix progress?

Is there an ETA for resolving this? Mojave was released for *public* beta starting in late June, and we're now learning there is no solution even as we reach the full public launch?

Hi David, we will be releasing a new version of RC Meetings to remedy the issue regarding clicking an invite link soon - should be available next week (barring any issues).

However, we are still working on a fix for the Outlook Plugin

I reviewed the attached knowledge article which says that the warnings for app incompatibility are a one-time warning. Are we safe to upgrade to macOS Mojave (10.14) after this latest release?

I updated yesterday and tested a couple meetings and did not notice any particular issues.  If you rely on meetings extensively I would proceed with caution or wait a while though.

I also noticed there was a meetings for Mac update that I think fixed some of the known Mojave issues already.

They released an update a day or so ago to fix the safari 12 bug. I after updating I saw the app compatibility warning on macOS High Sierra so I figured there'd be no difference in Mojave.
Should we anticipate another RC meetings update to resolve additional issues?

Hey William and Everyone,

The update I mentioned earlier to David did get pushed early so that's great! 

Right now, we ask that you please update/verify that you are on the latest RC Meetings for Mac before updating your OS to Mojave.

So, just to clarify, if we have this version of Meetings in your image above, it is safe to update our Mac OS to Mojave now?

Hey Lisa, correct! Continue to be aware that we are still working towards a resolution for the Outlook Plugin. All other issues have been resolved, though :)

Is there an ETA for the plug-in?  Kind of a major thing...

Sorry, there's no ETA right now. Rest assured, this is a major concern for us and our Product Team is working on it!

Hello, if we are not using the Outlook plugin, and just using the RC Meetings app, can we upgrade our OS to Mojave?

Yep! All other issues have been resolved with the Mojave Update (other than the Outlook Plugin)

I just got an updated version of RingCentral Meetings pushed to me this morning. Does this include the Outlook Plugin fix?

Even though it included an update to the Outlook plug-in? While I was installing that was part of it...

Hi Andy, 

The latest update only included some minor changes to the invite formatting, and is not the whole fix. We're still waiting for that to be rolled out.

Any update (or schedule) for fixing the Outlook plugin so we can upgrade to Mojave?  So disappointing that this has been going on for months and still no resolution reported.

FYI - I updated to Mojave as my company's IT department was alerted that this was fixed for RC Meetings. And, found this explanation for how to get the Outlook plugin (now as an Add-on through the Office store) while on Mojave: https://success.ringcentral.com/articles/RC_Knowledge_Article/11172-RingCentral-Meetings-Deploy-Outl...

Everything is working fine for me.

We have seen one instance where the camera on a 2018 non-touchbar MacBook Pro is not functioning under Mojave in RingCentral Meetings. The Facetime camera will not broadcast any video nor does the camera seem to activate (no light indicator to show it is on). We have also tried an external Logitech camera and get the same result.

This does not happen when running the same laptop/same Mojave install with Zoom or Google Hangouts. Has anyone else seen this? It seems specific to this model of MacBook Pro as we have not seen this behavior with RingCentral Meetings on other Mac models (MacBook Air, Mac Mini with external camera).

Hi Andre! One of our Engineers provided me with the following info:

By default, macOS Mojave prevents all apps using its AVFoundation API from getting microphone or camera data without your consent. The first time you run the app that wants to use camera it should ask if you want to allow. If this is not asking have them go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy Tab and then select Camera or Microphone and make sure RingCentral Meetings is showing there and is allowed.
Let me know if that helps!

That did the trick! Thank you for getting that info. Camera is now working with RingCentral Meetings.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled RingCentral and Mac Mohave 14.1 Issues.

US RC Phone Release: 10.2.1.31914 (64-bit)
Mac OS Mojave 10.14.1
Issues: app locks up, unable to adjust audio controls, call left on hold, etc. Forced to reboot app and have rebooted Mac also. I know it's not working when my iPhone RC App rings but desktop does not.
Is there a planned fix?

Hey Joe, I would suggest opening a case so we can gather more information. There is an issue with RC Meetings and Mojave but I haven't heard of any issues with our other apps yet.

Note: My issues were with phone, not Meeting. So IMO, this is a separate topic and should not be merged.

I had accidentally misread that it was for the RC Phone app, not Meetings. However, you'll still need to open a case so we can investigate and troubleshoot properly.

Everytime I try to open a case, it brings me to a log in page, and I've now logged in 7 times. What am I missing? (PS - the support page on this topic shows outdated website pages and thus isn't useful)

when clicking on that link (here or in the email from support), it brings me to log in page (even though I'm still logged in), it shows my open cases (none) but nowhere does it offer <open case>

You might want to update the knowledge base article to state that the issue is resolved - at the moment it appears to be an unsolved known compatibility issue.
