SMS: print option for text messaging

I am a U.S. business that works with real estate. I would like for you to consider adding a feature to text messaging (SMS) that would allow us to print out the conversation so that we can put it in our files if we need to. The only way I know to do it right now is a cut and paste into a word program and that is tedious and slow.

    yes I agree this would be extremely helpful, I am an insurance agency and its very helpful to have documented proof of changes etc.

    It's a common request for SMS through mobile phones to be able to export or print SMS conversations. I would have thought such a robust solution like RC would have that built in - hands down.

    I agree! Sending entire text conversations to a printable document is a much needed feature.

    I just copy and paste to a work doc. Control A, then click on the eraser to clear all the formating and it's perfect.

    I agree with being able to print the text messages. Sometimes you need to document things in Business. RingCentral is for Business Users.

    I couldn't agree more! I am also in RE and more, and, for better or worse, more agents and clients are communicating via text. There's an old saying that those with the best documentation win, and this is simply too tedious. One of the reasons we require our ahents use RC is for the audit trail. If there's not an easy way to produce the audit trail it make me question the investment in RC to begin with.

    As a Property Management Company, text messaging is a high percentage of how our tenants communicate with us. That being said, there are times we must print out the text conversations for documentation. Having a "print thread" option would save so much time in documenting conversations. Please consider adding this feature.

    We should at the very least be able to copy and paste the chat, that isn't even possible it just comes out WHITE. This is not NOT very well thought out

    Please add this feature ASAP. Without being able to print them out and save them, the message feature of the app is essentially useless for our firm

    Being able to download and/or print entire text conversations would be super helpful for our law firm.

    I want to be able to download all text messages like the call log with the content of the text in an excel file that can be sorted by phone number. It is crucial that I am able to document exchanges with my clients and save that information to the file.

    i need to document some text messages received and this feature would be very helpful. Please make it available

    I have this need as well. I am a lawyer, and it is a business necessity to keep a record of conversations. Even a button that allows us to copy an entire conversation, then pasting it somewhere else would work. The method that is built in, allows copying of one message, without date & time, without sender name.

    Please consider adding a a printing feature to the text messages thread; this is very important feature that should already be included in your program.
