lets you transfer a live call from phone to phone without any interruption to the call. When you are on a call, you can flip it to your mobile phone on your way out of the office; or flip a mobile call to your home phone once you’ve finished your commute. This feature is useful when you are running out of battery in one phone or when you need to move the call to another phone.
Follow the steps below to know how to configure and use Call Flip.Configuring Call Flip SettingsUsing Call FlipUsing Selective Call FlipNOTE:

, and then click Edit
under Call Flip

You may click Unlink
beside the number that you do not want to be in your Call Flip list. It will just be transferred below the list. If you wish to return the number on the list, just drag and drop it on an unused row. To add more numbers to your Call Flip list, see Configure Call Forwarding
Using Call Flip
You can use Call Flip on RingCentral deskphones, RingCentral for Desktop and RingCentral Mobile App.
When you are on a call, press ∗ and the Flip Number to which it is assigned. The call is transferred immediately to that assigned device. For example, if you have the number 2 assigned to your home phone, clicking *2 while you are on a call will instantly transfer the call to your home phone.
RingCentral for Desktop and Mobile App
On your RingCentral for Desktop or Mobile App, you can click or tap the Flip button while you are in an active call. When you click or tap the Flip button, you will be able to see the Flip Call to screen and select from the list of available numbers for call flip.
Using Selective Call Flip
The Call Flip feature might intercept when calling numbers that require the use of the asterisk or star key (*) + a number. The asterisk or star key (*) in the RingCentral system triggers the Call Flip
or Call Recording Function
. Because of this, you may be unable to use your RingCentral provisioned devices for pressing the (* + quick dial number)
command.Selective Call Flip
allows users to bypass the Call Flip command ( * + quick dial number) and prevent RingCentral's PBX system from intercepting with the touch-tone command. This will allow you to call numbers that require pressing the asterisk or star key *
followed by a number to get to the next option or to apply a touch-tone command during an audio conference.
For this to work, the QuickDial entry needs to be assigned to another Flip Number so RingCentral will not intercept with the touch-tone command entered through the phone provisioned with RingCentral. This will free up selective numbers to avoid confusion when a number is used for other function in certain calls.
To do this, just hold your mouse on the row, drag and drop the row to change the Flip Number. See Configuring Call Flip Settings
for the detailed steps.
In an audio conference, you have to dial *4
to mute the audio. You can free up slot *4 by holding your mouse on the row, drag and drop the row to change the Flip Number. In the image below, we moved the Flip Number to slot *6. Since *4 is now empty, you can now use it to mute the audio conference by pressing *4.
