Zoom Rooms check-in/check-out function

This post was most recently updated on August 23rd, 2021


ZoomRooms has check-in / check-out capabilities that maximize room utilization.

When this option is turned on, the user must either start a reserved Zoom meeting or check in to keep the room reserved.

If you do not check-in within the certain time set by the administrator, the room reservation will be canceled and made available to other users.

If you perform the following Zoom Rooms operations, it is considered that you have checked in, so you do not need to check-in separately.

  • Start of a reserved meeting
  • Start an instant meeting
  • Start screen sharing
  • Making a call to the phone

If the meeting ends earlier than planned, you can check out to make the rest of your time available to others.
