Sync Zoom presence to Outlook Follow

Overview

While the Zoom application allows you to sync your Outlook calendar and contacts with Zoom, you can also allow Zoom to set your Outlook status based on your current Zoom status. Once enabled, any changes to your Zoom status will be reflected in Outlook, as well as your Zoom profile picture. 

Note: Outlook can only be synced to one app at a time, so if Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams is synced to Outlook for presence and contact card, that will have to be disabled first before enabling it in Zoom.
