« Go Back


SummaryHow do I set a User's Do-not-Disturb and Call Queue availability?

When enabled, Do Not Disturb (DND) will send all your callers to voicemail. The Do Not Disturb feature on your RingCentral account is extension specific; it does not affect other extensions.

You can change your Do Not Disturb settings via the following:

 RingCentral for Desktop Icon
 RingCentral for Desktop
 RingCentral Online Account

For instructions on setting up DND on your RingCentral mobile app, see RingCentral Mobile app: Call Availability and Do-Not-Disturb Status.

Easily switch between Available, Busy, Do not disturb or Invible statuses without opening the RingCentral for Desktop and without doing extra clicks. This is available via dock on Mac and the Windows tray icon.
