Highlights


 

It’s the final stretch. As another month flies by and we inch closer to the holidays, businesses everywhere are looking to finish the year strong. And considering the barrage of transformations we’ve been through, wrapping up 2020 is a goal we can all get behind.

At RingCentral, we’re right there with you, with several new features to RingCentral Office and RingCentral Video that make collaborating with your colleagues more productive—and more fun. 

Here’s a look at our latest updates, with a preview of what’s to come in November:

1. Team Connect: create groups from meetings with one click 

Team Connect allows you to create a new messaging group as you schedule a RingCentral meeting

When it comes to meetings, context is critical before, during, and after. That’s why having a centralized workspace for a meeting keeps important members organized and collaborating at every stage of a project.

Team Connect makes it easier than ever to create those workspaces. You can:

2. Dark Theme: A refreshing new look and feel

Choose between Light and Dark Theme in your RingCentral interface.

A highly requested feature, Dark Theme revamps the RingCentral app’s entire color palette. Rather than a white background with black text, you can opt to have a black background. This is available on PC, mobile, and browser.

To go dark, simply open Settings, select Themes, and choose Dark from the options.

3. Waiting Rooms: Another way to secure your meetings

Waiting Rooms gives hosts full control over which participants can join the meeting.

As the need for video meetings rises, so too does the need to keep them secure. Waiting Rooms gives hosts full control over who can enter the meeting room, with the ability to admit or deny participants at any time.

Hosts have a breadth of controls when it comes to Waiting Rooms:

Coming in November

In addition to the capabilities above—which are available now—here’s a sneak peek of what’s coming in November: 

  1. Account admins will be able to control who in the company can invite external users to join a group (currently, anyone can invite a guest).
  2. Company admins and authorized users who export their company messaging history for compliance purposes or internal review will soon have the ability to filter by specific teams and users.

We’re excited to continue innovating and creating better ways for you to collaborate. Visit us at ringcentral.com to learn more or go to your RingCentral Office app to try out these new features today.
