Hi,. Is there any information about DOS Statements with RingCentral For Windows? I would like to open the app from another software and directly call with a number set as parameter. Else, how can I do that? I know this is possible, since Outlook has a plugin to do so. Thanks Niko
The RingCentral Connect Platform API is modern in the sense it is RESTful, implements OAuth2, and supports JSON. This enables any application capable of sending HTTP Requests and receiving/processing HTTP Responses can integrate with the RingCentral Connect Platform API.
Unlike *nix-based systems which typically have tools like cURL or wget available, DOS does not have these functionalities by default.
RingCentral supports URLs to activate Softphone and make a call. I.e., if a Softphone is installed on you local machine (Windows or Mac), you can type in a browser "rcmobile://call?number=<number to call>". And it will launch RingCentral for desktop.
Actually it also can be registered to handle standard "callto://<number>" and "tel://number". If it doesn't work by default it can be turned on via "Settings | General | Set as default call and fax application". But it doesn't work with Chrome as far as I can see.
