RingCentral App (Glip) - Add Advanced Integrations

Because task management, event scheduling, and file sharing are such an integral part of your daily workflow, that functionality was built natively into the RingCentral App. The App also integrates with a number of external applications and services. These integrations allow you to interact with the App from other applications, move content out and bring content from external services into the RingCentral App.

Add Advanced Integrations

The RingCentral App has also a number of Advanced Integrations that allow you to bring content from external services right into your conversation streams. For example, you might want notifications about new and updated JIRA tickets to get posted to your Development team. Or maybe Zendesk tickets for your Customer Support team. You can also do time tracking with the Harvest integration.

Click on any of the advanced integrations in the Available Integrations section and you’ll typically be asked to select a target conversation for the messages from the given service. You’ll then be provided with detailed instructions for setting up the integration. Some integrations, require you to sign into the other service and set up a “webhook” with a URL that we provide you. No need to worry, as we give you the exact steps to follow, along with helpful screenshots.

JIRA Instructions


For other services, you just have to sign into the service and we’ll set everything up for you.

Other Services


Once set up, most of the advanced integrations (with the exception of Harvest) will start posting messages to the selected conversation. Now that these messages are flowing right into the RingCentral App, you can go turn off some email notifications from the other service and have one less reason to check your email inbox!
