How to use the Workplace Zoom Bot in group chat

In order for the Workplace Zoom Bot to provide meeting information to all members of a group chat, it is important that this process occurs. When you enter the command @zoom help you will see a list of all the available commands.

In Group Chats, type @zoom in the appropriate box to initiate a meeting or join an existing meeting. You can start a meeting without any topic, start a meeting with any topic, or join an existing meeting.

How to use the meeting summary and recording link

In the event that the meeting is recorded in the cloud, the Bot will also post a summary of the meeting and a link to access the recording. You can disable this option in your Zoom profile so it will not be posted if your Personal Meeting ID was used for the meeting. Otherwise, it will be posted if your Personal Meeting ID was used for the meeting.
