If a queue call or a department call comes in and the prompt before connecting is turned on, the department's name should be announced to the agent or user for the user to know which department the call is from. idea 14 27 30 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/6413208/replies/15203375 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/6413208 15203375 Heart Transformation responded to "Call Queue: play announcement for SoftPhones and Mobile App" 2015-01-07T03:45:52Z 2015-01-07T03:45:52Z Heart Transformation http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/7313483 https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/eb373262fb7f0710c06483c438fb7885?d=identicon&s=55&r=PG heart_transformation Among many of the wonderful features that Ring Central has, this is one of the most important of all especially for companies that have departments that are manned by several people. We have no way of screening Human Resources or Sales calls because they run right into our private extensions without any notice or option to decline the call and send to voicemail. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!! put this feature at the top of your priority. 3 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/6413208/replies/18943562 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/6413208 18943562 Jeanine Jackson responded to "Call Queue: play announcement for SoftPhones and Mobile App" 2017-09-12T15:17:47Z 2017-09-12T15:17:47Z Jeanine Jackson http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9285304 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11141584/photo_medium.jpg jeanine_jackson We have different lines of business and want to be able to provide the appropriate greeting.
