Disable Email Unique Requirement
"Bring back the feature where I can use my single email as a contact email for all extensions. It is very inconvenient for me since I need to add extensions each month...."


This product update completely broke our User pre-provisioning process. RingCentral's Product Team has heard your remarks (and mine) and this will be resolved in an upcoming release.   Contact your Customer Account Manager to assist you with enabling the temporary workaround until the new product release has the ability to not require a unique email just to get the user account provisioned.   It will then offer you the chance to set the unique email address after the user account creation process has completed.

The new RingCentral requirement for email uniqueness flows from making their products truly unified so all RC products can be used together without separate logins, passwords etc.    See our blog here

User reports everything going straight to voicemail

This is often a mistaken setting, chosen by t he user. Here is how to set these settings properly. The User Greeting is not the outgoing voicemail message, many folks see that label and think that is where to setup voicemail. It does not route the call to voicemail, it simply makes an announcement before the call is connected. RingCentral Turn Off User Greeting
