Four Super-Handy Ringya Features

So you’ve uploaded some contact lists to Ringya – perhaps your office directory, your kids’ class lists, and the membership list from a club or association. Now that you have all that contact info at your fingertips, it’s time to take Ringya to the next level. Learn how to:

◊ Text or email individuals or sub-groups
◊ Share Resources with Friends and Co-workers
◊ Launch navigation from within Ringya
◊ Give your Rings personalized “code” names

1. Text or Email select individuals or a sub-group – You need to alert the L.A. office that a client will be on-site or let your fellow third grade dads know that the venue for dad’s night has changed due to inclement weather. It’s simple to text or email individuals or sub-groups.

 

  • Once inside a Ring, click on the menu button on the bottom right corner
  • Choose “Group Message”
  • Choose “Text Message”, “Email Message” or “Pictures via Email”
  • When the contact names appear, choose the ones you wish to message by clicking inside the empty boxes appearing near each name. A checkmark will appear to indicate those names have been selected.
  • If you wish to select an entire subgroup (eg. only the managers or only dads or only the L.A. office), select “By Role”, “By Department” or “By Company” and then place a check mark next to the group you wish to message


2. Share Resources with Friends and Co-workers – Instead of calling your friends or coworkers every time you need a recommendation for a plumber or great restaurant or chasing down co-workers when you need a contractor or supplier, collaborate with them via Rinya. Ringya allows you to custom build your own lists and share them. And when anyone adds to the list, the entire group gets the update. You can start a resource list, share it, and have people add to it so you can access each other’s recommended contacts.

 

  • When opening Ringya, click on the menu button on the bottom right of the screen
  • Choose “Manually”
  • Name the Ring (e.g. “Local Resources” or “Favorite Restaurants”)
  • You can choose to “Copy from Contacts” or “Add New Contact” manually
  • Once you’re done adding your recommended handymen, hair salons, or bars and restaurants, share the list with friends or coworkers and have them add theirs

 

 

3. Navigate straight from Ringya – Meeting a client or picking up your kid from a playdate? When you click on an address within a contact in Ringya, it will automatically connect you to Waze or Apple Maps so you can get where you need to go.

  • Open a contact list in Ringya and select a contact
  • Click once on the contact’s home or work address
  • Navigation app will launch
  • Address must include street name and city

4. Give Your Rings Personalized “Code” Names – Say someone shared the “Oak View School 2nd Grade” contact list with you but you want to call it something more specific like “Sally’s Class,” you can create a personal name for the Ring.

  • Open Ringya and click on the Ring you wish to rename
  • Click the menu button on the bottom right corner
  • Choose “Ring Details”
  • Choose “Edit” on the top right corner of the screen
  • Directly below the public Ring name, you can select “Set Personal Ring Name”
