Does anyone want to be able to automate sending the following?:

• Images: jpg/jpeg, png, gif, bmp, tif/tiff
• Videos: 3gp, mp4, mpeg, flv, wmv, mov
• Audio: mp3
• Files:  vcf/vcard, zip, rtf, html

RingCentral does NOT have the Zapier integration so you need a developer to accomplish this.

RingCentral has an SMS Zapier app but none for MMS. Please develop a publicly available Zapier MMS app!

Currently there is no RingCentral Zapier MMS integration. I sent this page to the engineering team and they are discussing.

Tyler Long,

Thank you! It would be wonderful to have this functionality. I've spoken with developers who will charge me several thousand USD to create a private app. I'd prefer to have it be public & would be willing to pay your company to open this up. I can probably get a group of investors to help pay for the development costs - this really should be public.

I know that you do have Fax opened up on Zapier - it seems this would function much in the same way as MMS. All that's needed is a compatible object pointed to with a url and voila, it sends.

I hope the discussions with engineering are positive!

Tyler - could you assist me with getting RingCentral to accept a post webhook for MMS?

What do you mean? You want to post something to RingCentral or you want RingCentral to post something to your url?

Ok so you post something to RingCentral in order to create a new MMS? 

RingCentral has API to send MMS: https://github.com/ringcentral/RingCentral.Net/blob/master/RingCentral.Tests/MMSTest.cs

You can setup a webhook yourself. So that you post something to the webhook, this webhook invoke RingCentral API to send the MMS.

Yes. That's basically all that I want to be able to do. I am able to create a post and have that go to a Zapier webhook. From there I can ask Zapier to run Javascript (Node 8.10.x) or run Python (3.7). Is the code you provided Javascript or Python?

The code is in C#. It is doable in JS and Python too.
