This post was most recently updated on July 23rd, 2022

Using the Zoom web portal, administrators can provision Personal Zoom Rooms for users with supported Zoom for Home or Zoom Room devices from the Zoom web portal. It simplifies the process of setting up a new account for home users since administrators can manage and configure basic settings on their behalf.
