I. Introduction: Zoom and Boardable Meetings

There are two ways to add a Zoom meeting to Boardable.

The first option is to integrate the Zoom and Boardable accounts. This lets Boardable automatically create a Zoom link for fully published Boardable meetings.

This strategy is recommended for Zoom accounts which are not shared between multiple users.

The second option is to create a Zoom meeting manually, then copy and paste its link into the settings of the Boardable meeting.

This strategy is recommended for Zoom accounts which are shared between multiple users.

II. Add Zoom to Meeting via Integration

To have Boardable automatically create a Zoom meeting and provide its link:

  1. Begin by creating a meeting

    1. Click Meetings from the main menu panel, then click + Add Meeting

    2. Enter appropriate meeting information

  2. Under Video Options, click Zoom

    1. If a Zoom account is currently linked, it shows that Boardable will create the Zoom meeting once the meeting is published

      1. If desired, a password can be entered under Zoom Meeting Password β€” this sets the password in Zoom for the Zoom meeting (when created by Boardable) to whatever is typed here; leave blank if no password is needed

      2. If desired, additional Zoom settings can be specified for the meeting, click Advanced Zoom Settings

        1. A drop-down displays with additional Zoom options - these are settings for this particular meeting

        2. Click options as desired, then click Advanced Zoom Settings again to hide the display

    2. If a Zoom account is not yet integrated, the option to integrate is provided; click Connect Zoom

      1. Note: the red highlight is an indicator that the Zoom account is not properly integrated and requires action

      2. Please refer to Related Articles if more details on integrating are desired
        ​

  3. Continue entering meeting details and click Save

    1. This opens the meeting's meeting page

  4. When ready to fully publish, click Publish Meeting from the top of the meeting page

  5. Invitees selected in previous step receive an email that includes the Boardable meeting link as well as the direct Zoom meeting link (if the invitee does not want to log in to Boardable)

  6. Verify

    1. Once published, use either of these methods to verify the Zoom meeting was properly created

      1. Check the detailed meeting information

        1. Click Edit Meeting Info icon in the top right corner

      2. Check the Boardable meeting link

        1. Click Join Web Conference from the meeting page

        2. Meeting opens in desired video conferencing service

      3. If the Zoom Meeting ID is not displayed after fully publishing the meeting, please refer to Related Articles for troubleshooting Zoom Integration

III. Add Zoom to Meeting without Integration

To include a Zoom link in a Boardable meeting if not integrating a Zoom Account:

    1. Highlight the URL next to Invite Link and press Ctrl+C (Windows) or Cmd+C (Mac) on your keyboard to copy it to the clipboard

  6. Once the meeting is published and notifications sent, invitees receive an email that includes the Boardable meeting link as well as the direct Zoom meeting link (if the invitee does not want to log in to Boardable)

    1. The Zoom link is noted as video conference since Other Link was used
