This  is easy to do and works fine with cell phones and voip providers, however the real demand is with landlines. There is also an issue with robo/spam calls using fake local numbers that cannot be prevented. The best scenario is to use a whitelist but that may block calls that you may have wanted to come through.

Hi Alan,
thank you for your comments.
Some clarifications as below:
1) "the real demand is with landlines" - agree (we do have a plan for that too as a separate project)
2) "fake local numbers that cannot be prevented" - there is a solution that is to be build yet. But that is a separate project
3) "best scenario is to use a whitelist" - disagree. With our solution the user has total control. It works for the last 5 years - tested/proven by 40+K users.

Statistics says "(because of scam calls in US) 2018 total loss of $8.9 Billion = 1⁄2 NASA’s budget".
By creating a scam protection Add-on for RingCentral we hope to reduce that number for small businesses...

Are you available/willing to help with the plugin?
Or do you know somebody familiar with RingCentral software that can help.

Thanks

Speaking of landlines: Current Landline Call Blockers available on the market are bulky and ridiculously expensive devices. Our landline call blocker will be no bigger than a sugar cube with a price of a cup of coffee... We need help to develop this too. Let us know if interested.
