Zoom app setting "hide incoming calls while in a meeting" greyed out


I just noticed today that the Zoom client checkbox to "hide incoming calls while in a meeting" is greyed out so cannot disable it. I've been rummaging around in the client preferences as well as the zoom portal and so far don't see any place to change this.


I noticed this because some of our users are complaining that the Zoom meeting option to join audio by calling you on your phone seems to have stopped working when using their Zoom phone. I'm wondering if some kind of interaction with the "hide incoming calls while in a meeting" option, but cannot test since cannot disable the option now!



While talking to a Zoom engineer about the Meetings "Call Me" feature not working any longer with our Zoom Phone numbers, I asked about this greyed out option. They brought up that perhaps this is something that was pushed out by our company's centralized software installation process (as I am on a new laptop).

Tomorrow I'll boot up my old laptop and see what it has for this setting.

@enielsen The feature is most probably being locked by your admin through MSI/GPO options
