Just looking for RingCentral to add the ability to add attachments (i.e. PDF's) when sending text messages.

This would be extremely useful.  Also, being able to receive pictures would be great.

Please add this, it seems so out of date to not have this ability

I'll just echo the sentiment: photo attachment to SMS is important to us. Sure would appreciate having that capability. Thanks!

This is great, good progress. The big one I need is group texting. I only need it for 2-3 people, not large groups, but it sure will simplify my life once we have it. Having to respond to a group text by sending out three individual ones is a hassle! (OK - First World Problem. But it shouldn't be that difficult to do!)

give it some time, they just got to sending photos and stuff. I'm sure the rest these types of attachments and enhancements are in the pipe line, it wouldn't make sense that they wouldn't be.

Today's technology evolves around sending and receiving PDF documents, by Email and by SMS Text Messaging.  It doesn't appear that I can send PDF Attachments.  I would love to have the ability to do so.  It is a key feature for me in the insurance business.

Not sure why this is not supported yet, 2018
Agree with last post, PDF is the standard for business documents.

I agree. This has to be in very high demand. Clients are not checking their e-mail as frequently as they used to. They get those texts checked as soon as they go off! Some clients aren't even giving e-mail any longer. It would be great to have this feature added as soon as possible.

I agree. Looking to move to other software company that has it, but would prefer not to.

The ability to attach a PDF to  a text message on Ring Central would be most helpful. Please consider adding this as an acceptable file.

Any updates on this from ring central. This is really crucial. We have to convert PDFs to images to send and ends up being multiple attachments.

Hi Mila, we do not support sending PDFs via SMS right now. If that changes, we'll update this thread

But why not?  I want to be able to attach photos from my ipad or iphone into a group chat.
