In order to successfully deploy the RingCentral Meetings Outlook Plugin via a GPO, you must
select the Basic option in the "Installation user interface options" of the Deployment tab in the Advanced Deployment option. When you add a software package to a GPO, you're given 3 options for the method of deployment, Published, Assigned or Advanced. Select Advanced and you'll be able to set this option. If you don't set to Basic, your users will get an error when trying to install that the installation is not safe and that your administrator needs to set the Basic user interface option.

Jeff, no problem. I prefer the Publish method of software deployment as opposed to Assigned. As you know Publishing makes the application available to the user to install via the "Install a program from the network" option in the control panel. I can alert remote users via the description that the install time may be slow dependent on their connection to the network.
