Administrators and owners of Zoom accounts have the ability to join multiple accounts together to create an organization. In addition to being able to search contacts, chat, organize meetings, and make phone calls (if Zoom Phone is available), these accounts once linked as an organization will also be able to search contacts. You will be able to avoid the hassle of members of the organization adding contacts manually from linked accounts in order to be able to communicate with each other if your accounts are linked.
There can only be one organization associated with each Zoom account. It will not be possible to accept an invitation from a Zoom account which is already a member of another organization, or even if that account is just joining your organization for the first time.
The account who created the organization is considered its owner, and can only delete the organization if it is owned by the account who created it. There is the possibility that accounts connected to the organization can invite other accounts, but only the organization owner is able to approve such invitations.
