Be able to choose different device for ringing
When I don't have my headset on I cannot hear when somebody calls.
Should have an option to ring on a different device e.g. Skype 7.41.x. See attached.
We are happy to announce this feature is released to the public.

Yes, this needs to happen asap, I always miss calls or annoy everyone.

This would be helpful
This is a big issue for us aswell!
This needs to happen ASAP, users are missing calls...
Please Microsoft stop with the bells and whistles. Users not getting ring notification similar to what they are used to with any other phone service is really important stuff
Where is Microsoft's comment?
this is a must-have. migrating from SFB to Teams has been difficult... this missing feature is one of the biggest sticking points. People are missing calls
This is a must have for those of us that only take a few calls a day.

This is a must have for us.
We already use the phone system with teams instead of a normal analog phone system, but our users are unable to hear the ringtone, because they use headsets.
In the beginning, they missed calls several times, which is not the way a modern phone system should work.
They now have the teams app on their phones to see the call when not looking at the monitor, this helps but is not a solution, and most users don't even have a company-phone.

We need this feature asap so we can migrate more users to teams. More and more just want a headset instead of a desk phone so this is useless without having something to alert the user if they are not on the machine or wearing their headset.

We also need this. This is very useful feature in Skype for Business, not sure why it can't be in Teams too.

My issue is that I hear the ringtone on the PC speaker, but not inthe headset, so if I walk away from my PC, and a call comes in, I can't use the button on my headset to answer it. in Skype for business, it rang in both places. and this is essential for full MS-Teams usage.

ring is a must, not a nice to have for Ops teams, especially now with so many virtual workers.
Same issue here. Just don'y understand why Microsoft, on releasing a newer product, does away with essential facilities which existed in the product being replaced!
Ernie Hughes commented
Yes, we are having the same issue, this is a show stopper for us since most of our users use a wireless headset. We are currently using Skype for Business for all our users but are looking at starting the migration to Teams.

Yep! This is a no brainer. If your headset is not on all the time, you will eventually miss a call...
It would be extremely useful to have to have the option of ringing through PC speaker and using a headset for calls. It is not practical to wear headset all day in order to not miss incoming phone calls.

It's now July 2019...and this has been requested two years ago.
We get emojis on Teams but not something functional like a Secondary Ringer. Y'know, something that is Actually a business function we all used in Skype.
Get over it, MS doesn't care.
Jennifer Thompson commented
Please add a ringtone for incoming calls in MSTeams. I am not always wearing my headset and have missed some calls due to lack of notification.
Agree - The ringtone on Skype is very useful - if you could add the same functionality that would be great.
