You can view and manage all your company’s RingCentral app users and any teams you have created via the Contacts menu, including all co-workers, guest users, and admins
Note: Guest users can only view RingCentral app users that they are in conversations with. If they’re not in a direct message, group, or team chat with a user, then they will not see that user in the Contacts menu. 

Navigating the Contacts menu

You can access the Contacts menu by clicking the person icon via the left-hand navigation bar.

In the Contacts menu, you can locate your teams via the Teams section in the left pane. This section contains the following tabs:
  • All teams: All teams that have been created in your company’s account, with the exception of private teams of which you’re not a member
  • My teams: Teams that you have either created or joined
  • Public teams: Teams that are public — that is, teams that you can join without an invite
  • Archived teams: Teams you were a part of that have been archived by an admin of the team. If you’re an admin of an archived team, you may reactivate it by clicking Restore at far right of that team
