Ring Groups is one of the most versatile features in the Ooma Office suite for a variety of reasons. If your business has a group of employees that could answer a call, like a customer support or accounting group, a Ring Group is an effective way to make sure no call goes unanswered.

Ring Groups helps you help customers.

You can either assign users and all their associated devices or a users’ individual devices to a Ring Group. When a call comes in, it’ll ring on every associated devices in two ways.
