Automated Attendance Tracking

Automate Zoom attendance tracking for a web application

No error

Hello, I am trying to figure out a way to automate Zoom attendance tracking in an external web app that is integrated with Zoom. The issue that I am having is that we don’t store a zoom user_id for users in our application so the only thing (that I know of) that we can match a user with is email. The issue with email is that we have no way of knowing if the email in our system will match, because they may be using their zoom personal account, instead of a corporate account. Additionally, if a user joins a Zoom meeting/webinar and is not logged in, then nothing will be returned to identify them. Is there any way to map zoom users to users in our system that is more reliable than matching on email, or that can get around the fact that a user may join a meeting while not being logged in?

Hi @josh4,

Have you considered leveraging registration? This would be the best way to ensure you can map users to participants.


Thanks for your reply Will, I’ll look into requiring registration.

Glad I could help :slight_smile:
