Was not able to know if I actually sent a fax.

I just found that I needed to send a fax.  RingCentral seemed to float to the top.  While attempting to buy the product, I was continually interrupted with an offer to chat help.  As soon as I put in my credit card, it stopped.  I wanted to know how to send a fax.  I could not find instructions.  I found the one half page user manual.  It did not state how to enter a fax number; was it to be just digits, digits with punctuation, digiits in an email format.  I pushed the button for chat help.  It was not available - now that I need it.  So I guessed.  From the desktop app, I input just digits.  It said fax was sent.  I have no idea if it was sent correctly.  I don't see where a history of the fax was recorded.  So I sent another.  This time I sent it with an @rcsomething.com.  I received the same response.  Do both methods work?  Did neither method work?

How can I tell if it worked?

Where are there instructions?  When I searched, I only found instructions for making phone calls.  

Further, I a couple different places I was asked for a phone number.  I don't know if this meant my personal cell phone or the RingCentral fax number.  So I input the fax number.  I have no idea of the consequences.  If this is wrong, how do I recover.

I also don't see how I can track this message.

After getting down through the subsequent questions, I was asked what other channels I tried.  It only provided for one.  Since I tried all that I could find, this question seemed very limited.  Also, it asked if I tried web support.  I never found that one.

simplest way is to go into your user settings/fax and select the option to send you Cc of the fax via email.  Portal login, settings, calls/fax and enter you email address so you receive confirmations.  

You can also view your call logs to verify the fax.

Log into your account online.  Go to messages, Sent Items.  You should see your faxed items.  Also, when faxing, you can use (xxx)xxx-xxxx or xxx-xxx-xxxx or just xxxxxxxxxx for the phone number.
