No only the person that is setting up the meeting needs a zoom account.

I may have made an error and this email wasn't generated from groups IO that said that. Sorry, but thanks for getting back to me.
 
I did notice another change that was made and I thank you for that!
Now when graphics or embedded or inserted images were shared in groups IO, and we go to save them from the Message area of the board, we now get to see the original name that the embedded or inserted images were named instead of just 0, 1, 2 etc

We are now in daylight savings time so it should read Central Daylight Time instead of Standard.

For emails that we receive (and then send back out to groups), we don't mess with the Date header line at all. If the message was posted via the groups.io website, we do generate the date line, and that would be our bug. But I don't see how that could happen.

Thanks,

...and in addition, it would be helpful if the integration could include the dial-in details that are normally generated when I schedule a meeting through the Zoom application.

...and in addition, the #zoom hashtag that is added to the meeting subject line is not added to the group list of hashtags.

This should all be fixed now.
The format of the meeting invite text looks good now however I have noticed that the Zoom integration does not pick up my default values in the Zoom app. In the integration, the host & participant video defaults to 'on', waiting rooms are not enabled and it always generates a new password for each meeting.  In the Zoom application with my personal meeting id (PMI) I can keep the same password.

Andy

The pwd= parameter which should contain the encrypted password also has part of the meeting number at the end and contains spaces. The next text line which is supposed to show the password is actually showing the last 4 digits of my personal meeting id.

This should all be fixed now.

In which case there would need to be some sort of tracking mechanism to know if you've read the latest version.  On some groups they may never get changed, on others they may get changed as often as daily.

Actually, because the time is corrected properly, I think it should just say Central Time.  A lot less work and always correct! ;>)

You need a Zoom account if you are hosting a meeting. Otherwise, you can just use the Zoom application to join a meeting by entering the meeting number (and password if required).

I've wondered about this when I end up in Messages view sometimes, but never pursued it since I always end up back in Topic view.  Seems that it should be consistent so the sticky shows up no matter which view a member prefers.  If they always use Messages or Expanded, they could miss some important information and wonder why.
If I may be so bold, I am OK with "Sticky's" anywhere and everywhere as long as I can dismiss (hide) them once I have read them.

Hi Mark,

there's a problem with the meeting information text that is generated in the calendar. The pwd= parameter which should contain the encrypted password also has part of the meeting number at the end and contains spaces. The next text line which is supposed to show the password is actually showing the last 4 digits of my personal meeting id.

Bob,

I actually t think this is a bug but will go with suggestion.
It has always seemed that way to me too.

Can't we have Sticky work for both views?
Yes please!

In the manual section referenced, it says "When you are adding an event, on the Event page, click the Make This A Zoom Meeting button (it is located below the Repeats panel).", but I'm not seeing the button on any of my Basic groups.  You had mentioned earlier that it would be on all groups for now.

Please try it now.

Thanks,

Hi All,

After a bunch of back and forth with Zoom, our Zoom integration is now active. You can now easily create a new Zoom meeting when you're setting up a Groups.io group calendar event. For more information, see the section in the member's manual here: https://groups.io/helpcenter/membersmanual/1/working-with-calendars/making-an-event-a-zoom-meeting

Please let me know if you see any issues with it.

Thanks, Mark
