Your Presence state will be set automatically, but can also be changed manually.

Functionality and Meaning of each Presence state


available - solid green

• User is currently active in the app and available to communicate via RingCentral App Mobile messaging or by phone.

• If the User manually changes their state to "Available", it will override other Presence states, such as "Busy". This allows the User to appear as online manually and show others they are available and free to communicate.


offline/invisible - solid gray

Offline: User is not connected to the app or has become inactive(15 mins or more).

Invisible: User has turned OFF their Presence status manually (same as Offline to other Users). 

• This feature is to allow Users to “opt-out” of showing their Presence state. 
• Users can turn this setting OFF by selecting Available or Do Not Disturb.

• DND is a manual-only state. User does not want to be disturbed.
