Send email notification to invitees when meeting is created/updated


I have an app that creates a scheduled meeting room on user demand.
The app gives host url to my team member, and the join url to the user.

I’m a member of a certain club that also use Zoom, and somehow I get an email notification like this.

I want to also have these notification for my clients when their meeting is created and updated. I need it especially because the email has 3 calendar links I pointed with the red arrow.

I have tried adding my email to the meeting invitees, but I don’t receive any email at all.

  'settings' => [
    'meeting_invitees' => [
      ['email' => ''],

Also tried setting registrants_email_notification and registrants_confirmation_email to true, but still no email notification comes to me.

If it’s not possible to have email notification when the meeting is created, then is there a way to at least get the calendar links?
The link looks like this (I shuffled the id letters).

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?


Hi @christhofer
Thanks for reaching out to the Zoom Developer Forum, I am happy to help here!
I understand that you are trying to create meetings via API and use the field “meeting_invitees” to send meeting invites out.
I am currently testing out this field and have reached out to Engineering because I am not able to send invites on my side either.
I will keep you updated on this issue.

Currently I am also trying to create zoom meeting using the Create Meeting API. I am trying to add attendees to the meeting using meeting_invitees field. But that doesn’t seem to work for me. Also I want to add the meeting to my google calendar by passing calendar_type: 2 inside settings key in the Create meeting api body. But that doesn’t work as well. Am I missing out something? Anybody’s help is much appreciated :slightly_smiling_face:

Any update on this issue?

We ended up creating .ics file ourselves with

Hey @christhofer
I apologize for the late reply!
As I told you I reached out to our Engineering team and I was told that this field is only to use by some of our Calendar integrations.
We will continue investigating this issue.
