The RingOut feature allows users who have an unstable internet connection to use a landline or a mobile phone to make phone calls while still utilizing the carrier services of Vodafone Business UC with RingCentral. 
Once the RingOut feature is enabled and set up, you can make a phone call using your account by dialing the party you’d like to call in the app, then take the call on the specified phone number.

Enabling RingOut

  1. Navigate to Settings via the left-hand navigation bar.
  2. Click on the Phone tab from the left pane.
  3. Enable the toggle switch for the RingOut feature under Outgoing calls.
