Issue

Customer wants to Enable Telephone Functionality in U-M Zoom Rooms

Resolution

You can enable your U-M Zoom Room conference room with telephone functionality without needing a physical conference phone in the room. This provides the ability to dial another telephone user for a 1:1 phone call, or call into a conference bridge for a non-Zoom meeting.
