Silence Zoom Phone Calls While in a Meeting

Zoom Phone replaced Cisco as Davidson's telephone provider on June 30, 2022. On this date, all Davidson faculty and staff with college phone numbers began using Zoom Phone to make and receive phone calls. For more information, see the Getting Started with Zoom Phone Guide.

One of the most useful features of Zoom Phone is the ability to automatically silence incoming calls while in a meeting. To do this please follow the instructions below:

  1. Open the Zoom Desktop App

  6. Test this out by having someone dial your Davidson phone number while you're in a meeting to ensure that it functions as expected.
