There are three likely causes of this problem:

  • License Issue: An appropriate license allowing fax services may not be assigned to the user.
  • Missing Fax Number: No fax number has been assigned to the user.
  • 8x8 Work Issue: 8x8 Work has not received the user setting change from Admin Console.
