Create multiple meetings at once

It would be useful to be able to create multiple meetings at one time (i.e. for advising appointments) and even have the ability to enter invitee email addresses so the meeting invitation is sent out to each. Thank you!

Hey @meltonml,

You can create multiple meetings for one time if you have multiple hosts to host the meeting.

For managing invites I would suggest to use Calendly or Google Calendar to send out the meeting invitation.

Thanks,

Hi @tommy. I was actually interested in the ability to create multiple meetings for different times. For example, if a teacher wanted to set up 10 meetings for 10 different advisees, say for 30 minutes each starting at 9:00am (9:30am, 10:00am, etc.), it would be nice if that could be accomplished from one screen, rather than having to create 10 individual meetings separately. We do use Google Calendar, but again the user then has to create 10 events and paste in the invitation code. It would be great if Zoom could use the Google Calendar API to automatically generate events for the meetings which would then send the email invitations (or something along those lines). Thanks!

Hey @meltonml,

You can accomplish this with recurring meetings, or via the Zoom Create Meeting API.

As for contact and calendar APIs, we do see the value of this, but right now are focusing on Video / Phone / Chat.

Thanks,

The recurring meetings feature actually won’t work for what we’re trying to accomplish. That uses the same meeting ID, and to keep the appointments private from one another, separate meeting IDs would be needed. Thanks for the info though!

Okay, your best bet to speed up this process would be to automate with the API.

Hi Tommy,

I able to create meeting using token, When I start desktop client from url skema, I am join as attendee. I have to put host key to be a host. My Question is
1.How I can start desktop client as Host without log into zoom website?
2. Which type of member I have to create to get host key that allow me to use that member host key to be a host.

Hey @gourab.singha,

Simply use the start_url returned in the response from creating a meeting to start the meeting without logging in.

Not sure what you mean by this, please share a screenshot.

Thanks,
Tommy
