How to enable or disable Display meetings scheduled for others in Zoom App

A meeting can be displayed for others if the Display meetings scheduled for others setting is enabled by an admin. A meeting administrator must also add users to a scheduled meeting, assign them the status of alternative hosts, and grant them scheduling privileges as well, in order for them to be able to take part in the meeting.¬†Using this feature, the admin’s scheduled meetings will be displayed and a filter will be available to those designated users when they wish to schedule a meeting with the admin. Using this setting, you can schedule a meeting on someone’s behalf or it can be used as an alternative host in the event of conflicting meeting times.

It is important to note that users with scheduling permissions will only be able to see their meetings if this setting is disabled.


  • Additionally, the alternative host must be granted scheduling privileges in order to be able to view or filter meetings scheduled for them as well as enable the Display meetings scheduled for others setting
  • It is only through the manual addition of you as an alternative host to another user’s meeting that you can view other user’s meetings that you’re an alternative host for. This has to be done by them.
