No, I have participated in a number of them in normal quests. I didn't have to change any settings to do so.

It is actually a really nice option.

I remember on DK where my group had just done a heroic, but only one wanted to turn it in straight away. 3 of us wanted to go do other missions but 1 wanted to hand it in, so when he initiated the conversation, all 4 of us participated - 3 via holocall and 1 in person. It was really neat considering we could all fully participate despite not being anywhere near the actual mission giver. 3 blue holograms and 1 person in a conversation - all players nowhere near each other. EPIC!

Yes, its in there under one of the headers... says somethign like "allow friends to participate in story missions" or something like that.

EDIT: funny all these posts but not one is helping you find were to turn it on.
These Queue things you speak of... are they a rare drop? i have never seen one. - Darth_Fu
The problem isn't the question, but rather understanding the answer.
The truth is only what you believe it to be... until proven otherwise.

You are thinking of the option "Allow Access To Same Class Story Areas". This option allows two members of the same class enter each other story arc areas. It has nothing to do with holoview in turning in missions.

This happens automatically.

In a Flashpoint, you are required to participate in every conversation, whether you holocall or enter the green circle and select enter convo.

Outside of that, the person who initiated the conversation for a regular quest giver has the option of waiting for party members to join the convo (if they are eligible), or selecting to start the convo without the party members.

This funtion does not require any settings to be switched in preferences

It definitely works on all outside world Heroic missions. It doesnt work in Flashpoints or most heroics that take you inside a phase.

It worked just fine in both Esseles and Black Talon, what are those then?
