RCV - Bring Back Whiteboard, Annotate, Voting/Raising of Hand Feature in RC Meetings

Why is it useful

- Highlight important notes in meetings.

Who would benefit from

- All of your RC Clients, and you, because your Clients will be happy with RC's Software.

How should it work

- Please incorporate the old RC features: whiteboard and annotate.

    Any likelihood of the annotate functionality becoming more like GoToMeetings? Allowing presenters the ability to draw on presentations and capture the annotations? Allowing the presenter the ability to erase/save the annotations to the presentation vs auto erase. The Whiteboard is a great feature, but the lack of the annotation functionality is what is keeping us from switching from GoToMeeting for our consulting calls.

    Thanks, Team - appreciate the feedback on Annotation.
    This feature is still being worked on but an open customer beta is expected to be accessible by end of year.
    We'll keep this idea updated when we have more specific dates.

    I agree with Jeremy. I am hoping to switch to RingCentral for online lessons, but I need the ability to draw and type on my shared material.

    Checking on this, Jeremy. When I hear something, I'll share here.

    I like whiteboard, but Annotation is really the issue. You can't share your screen and annotate on it. When is that going to be fixed/implemented?

    Hey, Team - these features have been implemented. Below are KB articles that might help you to better adopt these features.
    Please feel free to reach out if the Idea Team can assist further.

    I don't have a KB handy for Annotate, but working to get it added.

    Hello,


    We're working on all these features and more.

    If you'd like to participate in Whiteboard, Persistent annotations Beta (early access), please send me an email: aniket.naravanekar@ringcentral.com. Thanks!

    Wow...annotation in RCV is TERRIBLE. I draw on the screen and it just automatically disappears. I need to be able to draw over my presentations and have it last as long as I want to and then erase when I'm ready to move on to the next topic.


    Automatically erasing is HORRIBLE.

    Please add features ASAP.

    As a school, our teachers really miss the whiteboard in particular.

    Not sure if this tagging will work, but tagging you both as I see that instructions/follow ups/updates are from you. Appreciate if we can take a look at this please since it's most imperative to have these features.

    Whiteboard feature is so important to create a quick presentation in a matter of seconds. without the text, sharing screen with sound and the key points of every meeting without this awesome feature, the efficiency for RC meetings goes down.

    Bring back Whiteboard feature and text annotate feature in RC Meetings as it makes it easier to identify and work with information during a meeting.

Can we go back to the old version?

I know you strive to make RingCentral better (by making it more like Skype), but now it's almost impossible to have quick access to my thread messages. When I find the messages, they have option overload when all I want is a quick list of messages...

Share audio in RingCentral Video

This is a feature in RingCentral Meetings and Zoom (which are essentially the same thing) but not in RingCentral Video - allow a user sharing their screen to also share their computer's audio.

Annotation - for meetings

Merged
RC Meetings offered participants to annotate on the screen. This feature has been removed in the new RC app with video meetings. This is a major setback to online meetings and collaborative efforts between users.
