SummaryHow do I edit the Emergency Dialing address using the RingCentral mobile app?
Details
The Emergency Dialing Address information relates to your access of Emergency Call service in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and other jurisdictions where you will use the service through your RingCentral Digital Line.
 
United States and Canada: 911
United Kingdom and elsewhere in the European Union:
112 / 999
 
You must enter the physical location of the phone that will be using your RingCentral Digital Line. Emergency dispatchers (Emergency Call Service) will send emergency first responders to this exact location when you call 911, 112, or 999 for help. 

IMPORTANT: Be sure to update this address every time you move your phone to a different location to make sure you can be found during an emergency. If you do not update your Registered Location, any emergency call you make using RingCentral VoIP service will be routed based on your previously provided Registered Location and therefore may not be routed to the appropriate emergency responder for your current location.

Account Administrators can update the Emergency Dialing Address via the RingCentral Online Account. This article shows the method the Administrators can use when updating this information via the RingCentral mobile app.
