I don't want my Outlook contact information to be used as the address book in Softphone.I want my contact list as it appears in my account online to also appear in Softphone. I would like to know specifically:

1) How to prevent Softphone from using my Outlook Contacts as my
Softphone address book (I unchecked "use Microsoft Outlook" for my
address book). There doesn't seem to be an option to synchronize the
local address book with my online Ring Central address/contact list of
fax recipients.

2) I would like smartphone to instead synchronize the address book
with my separate contact list as it appears in my account at Ring
Central (which bears no resemblance to my Outlook contacts on my
computer). My preferred fax recipients are in my contact list on Ring
Central website...nowhere else. Those are the same (and only) contacts I
want to appear in my address book on Softphone.

Can this be done?

Why would you need to create a seperate contact list?  If you make a contact directory on any phone under your extension, it should be viewed from any device, softphone or smartphone.
