Automatically start/stop scheduled Zoom Room meetings

Meetings in Zoom Rooms can be scheduled so that they follow the Google or Microsoft calendars that are associated with the Zoom Room. Meetings can be set to start automatically based on the time set in the calendar at the start of the meeting or to stop based on the time set at the end of the meeting. By using these options, users will no longer need to manually start and stop meetings in the room by using a controller every time they want to do so.

  • Zoom Rooms iPad Controller 4.2.37605.0629 or higher

How to use upcoming meeting alerts
