In addition to being able to sync your Outlook calendar and contacts with Zoom, you can also set Zoom to set the status of your Outlook calendar based on your current Zoom status, which in turn will set the status of your Outlook calendar. As soon as you enable Zoom, any changes you make to your Zoom status, as well as the picture you choose for your Zoom profile, will be reflected in Outlook.
Note: As Outlook only allows you to sync with one app at a time, syncing with Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams is not allowed, so if you want to use Zoom in partnership with Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams, you will need to disable those applications as well before enabling them together.
