  2. R! Admin Department Monitor / Unreturned | Add option to view Monitor details for entire business (all departments)

    In "R! admin > Monitoring > Department monitor & Handle Unreturned" are both limited to individual department views.

    Some managers/owners would prefer seeing the entire business' department monitor data. Adding an option in the drop down to select a department that includes 'all departments' would both:

    -Ease company-wide report generation
    -Ensure all unreturned calls are returned within the same screen.
    Both tasks would be able to be completed without cycling through several departments and combining data.

  3. Call Reporting Basic [Should it include Outbound attempts listed as 'incomplete calls'?]

    Customer would like to know if "call reporting basic" 'outbound calls' field can include 'incomplete calls' with 'outbound calls' combined on this account exclusively.

    Some businesses need to know all call attempts. Others need to know only successful outbound calls. Currently 'reporting basic' only helps one of these groups of businesses.

  4. Sort Local Phonebook on the phone console

    In the admin center, you can sort the phonebook/contacts by Name or number. It would be nice if I could do that same thing on the phone itself. It appears to be in the order of how the contact was added first to last.

  5. Call Reporting Basic, Outbound Calls: Data suggestion

    Outbound calls are logged in only specific situations.
    Changing Call Reporting Basic Outbound call's section:
    "Calls" to "Answered and "Total" would provide data relevant to more business types and their outbound calls.

    Currently what is considered an outbound call:
    -Call answered for a second.
    -Call reaching voicemail greeting for a second

    Not an outbound call:
    -Call that sat in a menu for 2 minutes then rang 5 times and hung up.
    -Call that immediately rang 1 time and hung up.

    You could be on the phone for 2-3 minutes cycling menus, and ringing for x amount of rings, but our…

  6. Fax faxing / Enable / Disable Coversheet

    Some faxes have unique data required by businesses who receive them. QR codes, bar codes, a unique initial sheet.

    Having a mandatory fax coversheet can impact these communications.
    Many requested a means of toggling it on/off. It would also improve fax transmissions by lowering the page count.

  7. faxes only available for last 10 days

    Per CG, Many businesses rely on faxes and fax records, some aren't able to keep up with 10 day windows on inbound faxes.

    >Currently works via email fax copies received.
    Can be improved with:
    -increasing fax 10 day window
    -a field for viewing faxes in call reporting advanced

  8. direct to voicemail transfer | Add voicemail greeting

    The direct to voicemail transfer already works with grandstream devices using * * then the extension exclusively during transfers.

    It also works for accounts that have it added by request where 9101 goes to extension 101's voicemail.

    In both of the above cases there's no voicemail greeting announced. Just a beep. This can confuse clients. Often times those messages include afterhours, rules, or special means of contact for clients.

    Voicemail greetings playing when direct to vm transfers are made is a useful feature needed.

  9. SMS Blast Function / SMS Quality Improvement

    Accounts using SMS with 100s of contacts bring the r! web app down to a turtle's pace.
    Particularly when the "pen and paper" icon is selected creating a second instance of the R! web's 'contacts list'.

    Removing the slow down of populating the entire contact list again is recommended.

    -------
    Additionally, an SMS blast feature is desired to send multiple clients the same SMS message.

  10. Notification counts or push notification option for ringbyname app / Any kind of SMS notifications

    All my apps have notification counts or push notifications, ringbyname app requires me to open it to see these notifications unlike all my other apps. It'd be nice to select enable notifications for faxes or SMS.

    Currently SMS doesn't have any kind of notification beyond opening the app. An email notification tick box for SMS being added would help and be quick to implement.

  11. Voicemail and call back request notification by SMS

    Currently I am getting voicemail and call back request by notification, which is an awesome feature! Great work. I think it would be even better if you add SMS notification to this. Thank you

  12. Porting numbers Faster process

    Update to LOA form that allows online signatures E-signature to speed up the process of porting in numbers.

    You can realize one day that you've been paying 2 companies for the same phone bill and be upset with both of them.

  13. (2) Fail Safe suggestions to prevent call issues

    1) Do not allow departments to have extensions that forward to each other. (sales: 100, 101, 102; where 100 also fwds to 101). Additionally Do not allow extensions to forward to each other if they belong to the same department already. Can cause call failures.

    2) In R! admin > Phone Numbers, DO NOT allow a client to 'save' when both
    Use these Hours For this Phone Number > Send the after hours calls to > "Use the Voicemail and Callback Preferences" is SET
    AND a MENU is selected as the 'Send Calls To'
    Causes afterhours calls to immediate hangup.…

  14. For calls that go unanswered, there's no voicemail message option to play a message and NOT record voicemails/hangup.

    When customers calls are missed, I'd like them to hear our hours of operation and then a thank you message. I don't want them leaving voicemails. It will lead to less call backs on our next business day.

  15. R! Invoice Order in Billing Info is shown backwards for usability (oldest bills first)

    Currently in R! Admin, under Account and Billing Info > Balance and Statement, all statements are shown in Reverse order.

    The oldest invoices are the first ones seen, instead of what should logically be the most recent and up to date bills. This can cause confusion for customers, and upset them if their billing statements have changed significantly since they created their account
    (most accounts don't keep the same number of users from their start date)

    Please reverse the date order the invoice list is sorted by in R! admin for practical use.

  16. Remove Contact Info From RingByName Admin "Account" Tab Or Sync RingByName admin panel with customer service info so consistently updated

    Reasons for removal:

    -Whenever I see this field, its incorrect, but service agents have the correct information when I call them in their system.
    -This is confusing.
    -Its a time waster when I call in to confirm whether or not this has been updated on both sides.
    -If this field isn't used by service agents, and its not always right for me, why does it exist? It's better removed.

  19. Be able to attach multiple documents to fax

    When sending faxes I can only choice 1 document to send. In the old system I could attach multiple documents and send. Now to send Multiple documents I have to combine them to be able to do this. It should be possible to attach multiple documents!
