RingCentral Phone | Softphone does not ring on Queue calls

« Go Back


SummaryThis article provides a solution for an issue wherein Queue calls are not forwarded to the RingCentral Phone (Softphone) after an advanced call handling rule is configured for the User's extension.

Troubleshooting - RingCentral Phone (Softphone) does not ring when the User's extension receives Queue calls 



Users can configure different rules for call forwarding. This can be done by creating Advanced (Custom) Call Handling rules in the RingCentral Online account. 



Queue calls are not forwarded to the RingCentral Phone (SoftPhone) after an Advanced Call Handling rule was configured for a User's extension. 

The issue happens only with queue calls: the RingCentral Phone (Softphone) does not ring when the call originates from a Call Queue. The RingCentral Phone (SoftPhone) rings when the User's extension receives direct inbound calls. 


Solution 1

1. Open Call Handling & Forwarding, then click Advanced
