Inbound Calls through RingCentral

INTRODUCTION

HappyFox allows your staff to handle inbound calls through Ringcentral from within the HappyFox app. This article takes you through the entire lifecycle of an incoming call, starting from call arrival upto ticket creation.

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. In addition, tickets are automatically created for calls sent to voicemails.

This feature is available on Fantastic, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus plans.

NOTE

  1. The ticket id displayed after call creation on the top right portion of the “call information band”  is clickable and will take you back to the ticket details page if you navigate elsewhere.

  2. If the agent does not associate the call to an existing ticket or new ticket while the call is in progress, the call recording is associated with a new ticket in the default category that was linked during setup. Please refer to the article on Setup to learn more.

  3. Note: Due to an API limitation from RingCentral, HappyFox receives voicemail webhook notifications only for the extension which is used to setup the integration(say super admin extension). If you need tickets to be created for voicemail messages received for all active extensions, you need to set the message recipient to super admin extension for all the active extensions.
