Ring on all Devices - Incoming Call
When a Call comes in, it only rings in the headphones. But as we don't wear our headphones all day long, sometimes we can't hear it ringing.
Please make an option to ring on all attached devices (speaker + headphones).
The Secondary Ringer feature can address this. If you have multiple certified devices attached to your computer, you can set one as your Secondary Ringer. Then you can answer calls on any of your devices.

The secondary ringer often resets itself. Why would certified matter? Why can't I use my built-in speakers or dock speakers as a secondary ringer? It's a ringer, after all, not a microphone, etc.

Seems this one needs to be closed out. It is now a feature in the settings >Devices under "Secondary Ringer"

Some good news:
"Secondary ringer" is being rolled out:
I have received the update already and can confirm that it actually works :-)
Without ringing on speakers, I can not use MS Teams for telephony calls (as I would miss them)
I have just got the latest update for Teams and still no sign of this! There are numerous requests for this feature, the one below had 153 votes in 2018 - Teams should have at least the functionality of Skype for Business as you are forcing tenants to adopt it as a replacement.

There is a similar Request with higher votes:
Be able to choose different device for ringing
Yes this is very missed, mostly your headset is your main device. You dont hear your calls when ringing on the headset. They must add it with the same option in SfB that you can choose your secondary device.
Not even sure why this was never added from day one. I was using Skye for business before and it had a setting to do that. Was the first setting I changed.

Looks like it is on the roadmap to be added for June CY2019
I hate teams because of this. I miss every incoming call.
Ben Andrews commented
I agree with this. They're pushing everyone towards teams so you'd think they would add this in.
