Scheduling and Launching a Zoom Meeting
If you regularly schedule meetings on behalf of others, Zoom has a scheduling privilege feature. When using "schedule on behalf of," the meeting will be scheduled in the other person's Zoom account. Both the scheduler and account owner can view and edit the meeting.
This frees up the scheduler's Zoom account so they can host a meeting in their own account at the time if needed.
Before the scheduler can use "schedule on behalf of," the 2nd party must set up scheduling privilege:
The 2nd party needs to log into their Zoom web portal (MyWellesley>Zoom or wellesley.zoom.us).
Select Settings on the far left.
Scroll all the way to the bottom of the meeting settings.
Select the + next to "Assign scheduling privilege to."
Enter the scheduling person’s full email.
Start a Zoom meeting you scheduled, or that was scheduled on your behalf, from the Zoom application or from your Zoom web portal:
- From Zoom application: Your upcoming scheduled meetings are listed on the Home page. Select the blue Start button to begin a meeting. If your meeting is not listed on the Home page, click the Meetings icon at the top, choose Upcoming, select your meeting and then Start.
- From Zoom web portal: Select Meetings at the far left, hover over the meeting title and then select Start.
