With RingCentral for HappyFox, you can have your staff receive calls and also make outgoing calls through RingCentral from within HappyFox.
Call recordings from RingCentral can be added as a new ticket or appended to an existing ticket. Call recordings and additional meta-information about the call are captured on the ticket.
This feature is available on Fantastic, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus plans.
NOTE: You need to have administrator access to the RingCentral account to set up this integration.

Login and Authorization
Enter your credentials on the Login Screen, which will open in a new tab.
Important Note ❗️: RingCentral has restrictions on login sessions on each user. They delete older login sessions regardless of whether it is used by a person or by an integration (in this case - HappyFox) So if the RingCentral user account that's used to connect to HappyFox is being used by that person also to attend calls, every 5th or so login will get dropped. We recommend creating a dedicated RingCentral admin user for the purpose of HappyFox integration. This is a limitation of RingCentral's API and is not something we can work around.
