I'd like the ability to have all of my users respond to the SMS's for the main number.

instead of only having the operator be able to view and respond to SMS's from the main number, it would be great if we can create something similar to a call group for SMS's and choose who we want to have access to the company number for SMS.

    Users need the ability to set the default text number. For example, I'd like to set the default text number as the Main Company Number.

    Currently, I'll set the Main Company Number, but when the app restarts or updates, it switches back to the Direct Number. If we send a text from the direct number, it confuses the clients, and causes customer service issues for our company.

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let users set a default text number!!!

    This should be urgent now. The RC Phone app is no longer usable, so I can’t be logged into the Unified app and the Phone app at the same time.

    And switching accounts on the phone app is not easy, which means I need to fully login and log out just to view SMS to and from the mainline on mobile.

    On desktop I can still use the RC Classic Phone app and be logged into RC Unified at the same time, but it’s still a hassle.

    Please add HUD and Supervision features such as changing agent status on the Classic Ring Central app.

    I too agree that more work can be done on shared sms accounts. I have been able to find a bit of a workaround, although it can use some improvements as well.

    What I have done for a couple customers that need to send/receive sms from their primary number is to make sure the number setup to route to a Call Queue, it can either be set to the queues Direct Dial number or you can setup the Auto Receptionist to route to a queue. I then have the end users log into their RingCentral Phone App as the Queue manager, ie. for the username use the Primary Number with the Queue extension and then use the Queue password for the password. All the different users can be logged into the queue at the same time and monitor any incoming sms or faxes and also reply to or start a new message using the primary business number.

    The down side is the users can't be logged into Queue and their account simultaneous within the same app so as a work around I have them use the RC Classic App for their direct call and message handling and then use the RC Phone App for handling the Queue messages. Also it appears that you can only log into the Queue using the RC Phone App, the Classic App or Web App doesn't appear to allow it.

    Hope this helps give you some options.
