How to schedule a zoom meeting

 

Overview

Zoom offers several ways to schedule meetings. The host manages the scheduled meeting options, except for settings that the administrator has locked for all users or all members in the account.

 

 

Note:   From 4th November 2017 hierarchy settings are available for the zoom function. The settings for the meeting feature set up so far will continue to work in the same way. Changes made by the administrator may affect scheduled meetings.
