Changing group settings for managed Zoom Clients

After your desktop and mobile devices have been enrolled in Zoom Device Management and device groups have been established, admins can begin managing the settings available on the managed apps.

These settings typically correlate to the policies available through MSI (Windows), GPO (Windows, macOS, Linux), Plist (macOS), and MDM deployment for Android and iOS. Any existing MSI/GPO/PLIST/MDM policies already deployed will not be affected by the ZDM enrollment, but policy changes through ZDM will supersede those applied through manual packaging and deployment.
