  1. SMS Unread Messages Where are they?

    The biggest issue with SMS is the Red notification number near the SMS doesn’t really tell you which SMS are “new”
    It appears that the SMS window sorts by date, not by read / unread. Also only the “owner” of the SMS has the Green / Grey dots on the message to toggle the message read. A user might see 8 SMS notices, and have 200 messages, but no idea where the “8” unread ones are at.

    All Possible Suggestions
    Suggestion 1, Make Conversation boxes bold or highlighted to show there is an unread message in that conversation.
    Suggestion 2,…

  2. 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.

  3. CRM / QuickNotes / Events Vs R! Contacts

    <Combination of Features>
    R! Contacts, QuickNotes, Events, and CRM are all missing a few minor quality of life improvements. 11-28-18
    "As a growing business, I noted that as my contact deals increase, I'm going to be very lost between the above features."

    Currently looking at QuickNotes drop-down in main R! Web, you can't tell if a quicknote is related to a contact. If you open that contact, you CAN.

    It's the same case with Events, Events can be opened in the r! contacts window, and appear on a list in the R! contact view for that contact, but looking at…

  4. Removing services breaks other services | Prevent downtime

    "I just removed a number/extension from one agent/client and it impacted another client's service!"

    Sometimes e911 is all shared with 1 DID. When that DID is removed, its e911 information goes with it, disabling 1 to possibly all extensions from outbound dialing and impacting some to possibly all inbound calls.

    Suggestions:
    >Dont allow system to approve removing DIDs/Users if e911 issues will be generated.
    >When visiting R! Admin, If there's a DID or User missing e911 information, give a popup alerting/directing them to update it.

  5. 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

  6. have voice mail messages auto transcribed and sent to email

    have VM messages transcribed automatically and then have it sent to email to be able to read the messages. its sometimes faster to read a message that has come in and then respond and gives us a trail which can be copied and pasted to notes or wherever.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Sort my numbers in the Admin Panel

    I find it very inconvenient to work with my telephone numbers in the admin area. I have many telephone numbers in the account and have to click on the show more button 3 or 4 times to see the whole list. It would be great to be able to sort the list based on the type (personal or company), or numerically to help me find them sooner.

  13. R! Admin Usability | Top Down and Bottom Up Call Flow Creation

    Adding a means of creating call flows from the top down would make R! admin panel more usable, as many customers may logically start at the top and work their way down.

    >When selecting where to send calls in 'Phone Numbers' add drop down options "New Menu" "New Department"
    -Selecting these options should open a prompt/popup for naming the menu/department.
    -Consider then moving current view to the newly created menu/dept so user can select menu options/dept users.

    >Additionally when creating a new menu in 'menus', add drop down option "New Department"
    -Selecting this options should do the same as above.

  14. Porting numbers Faster process

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

  15. Keypress Recommendation Popup

    Keypress can be used for various reasons, but there is one situation when it should ALWAYS be used: When a cell phone forward is in use.

    When that cell has no signal or battery issues it sends calls to its personal cell voicemail, keeping departments or users from answering business calls. This can be a detrimental loss to all kinds of businesses.

    Suggestion: A popup notification when a number is added to cell/landlines. "Is this a mobile number?" Y/N "Saved! (Mobile Keypress has been enabled.)"

    Unsure how detailed we should be with how it saves calls/protects business. Listing it as…

  16. (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.…

  17. Ability to Record Voicemail Greetings for Departments, not just Users

    Most people will understand voicemail greetings as something recorded by using their phone. Personalized and simple.
    A User or a Department's voicemail greeting is prone to frequent change for holidays or schedule changes.

    Having to upload an mp3 for every holiday/schedule is time consuming compared to simply dialing *97 and the department voicemail box to record a new greeting. This can already be done with user voicemail boxes.

  18. way to delete contacts, call records, or voicemails in BULK instead of 1 at a time.

    It discourages use when I have to wait 8-15 seconds to delete one accidental call record/voicemail.

  19. 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.

  20. Auto login for mobile app please

    I have to login to the mobile app again almost every time I use it. Why?
    This makes using it very inconvenient. All my other apps auto log me into services. VLT-89152-993
