I. Why Integrate My Zoom Account?

The main reason for integrating a Zoom account is that it saves time! If a Zoom account is integrated within the Boardable account, Boardable can create Zoom meetings on your behalf. No more signing in to two different applications. No more creating the same meeting in two places. Boardable does it all for you!

Here are a few advantages to integrating a Zoom account in Boardable:

  • Allows Boardable to create a Zoom meeting on your behalf

    • This saves time so that you don't have to create the meeting in Boardable and also create the meeting in Zoom

  • The link to the Zoom meeting is included in the emailed meeting invitation

    • Invitees have a link to the Boardable Spotlight meeting page (where they can click Open Zoom to enjoy both Zoom and Boardable Spotlight)

    • Invitees have a direct link to the Zoom meeting if they do not want to log in to Boardable

  • Invitees can click Join Meeting from the meeting's page in Boardable, then click Open Zoom

    • This allows the invitee to enjoy the advantages of a Boardable Spotlight meeting while still viewing the Zoom meeting

II. Integrate Zoom from My Profile Settings

Integrating a Zoom account in Boardable will enable all Boardable meetings to effortlessly, and instantly, link to Zoom with a simple select and publish. Boardable will communicate with Zoom to create the Zoom meeting and supply the Zoom link within the meeting and invitation.
