Company Auto-Receptionist
When forwarded calls are routed to the Company Auto-Receptionist, Company Call Handling rules will be implemented. 

Extension
When forwarded calls are routed directly to an Extension, the Extension's Call Handling & Call Forwarding rules will be implemented.
 

Step 5: 

You will see a Confirmation window that your RingCentral account is ready to accept calls from your non-RingCentral number. Click Done.

IMPORTANT:  On this page are instructions for Ordering Call Handling from your number's service provider. In order for RingCentral to receive calls from your non-RingCentral number, you will need to contact your existing number's provider to order the forwarding of calls to RingCentral. You can Print the instructions on the pop-up window.
