SummaryHow do I set up a User's Call Screening on the RingCentral Online account?
Details
The Call Screening feature lets you identify the caller so you would know how to answer the call. This feature is disabled by default and can be enabled so that callers would announce their names before continuing to connect the call.

NOTE: When you enable Call Screening, you also need to set up and enable the Play announcement before connecting settings. If you enable Call Screening, and the Play announcement before connecting is set to Never, the User will not be able to hear the Call Screening announcement when the User picks up the call.
