To start a Zoom meeting from your Sococo app, you need to have Zoom enabled and your Zoom account connected to the app. When a Zoom meeting is started, it is linked to a room so all other users know that there is a meeting and can easily join.
Note: Once a Zoom meeting has been created, other members in the room will not be able to start a new one until the meeting linked to the room has ended.
To start a meeting with Zoom, follow the next steps:
Click the Talk > Create Zoom Meeting button at the top-right part of the app.
If you are starting a Zoom meeting from Sococo for the first time, you need to authorize the integration.
You will be prompted to Sign in to your Zoom account (or Sign up for one if you do not have it already).
Once you are logged in, you need to Authorize the Sococo app to access your Zoom account.
- The authorization is confirmed.
The Zoom meeting starts. You might need to confirm opening a Zoom Meeting when using a browser.
Tips for Zoom Meetings in Sococo
To prevent more users from joining your Zoom meeting, you can follow these tips:
Start the meeting in a room where all present users are supposed to be a part of the Zoom meeting, as they all will be receiving the notification to join.
Allocate several rooms in the space for ad-hoc meetings, so you can go there if you do not want to disturb all other users in your room with a Zoom meeting invite that is not intended for them.
To prevent other users from joining your Zoom meeting, you can close the door of the room you are in so that users entering your room will require you to allow them in before joining the Zoom meeting.
Note: All members in a room where a Zoom meeting is taking place have the ability to end the meeting.
The Zoom meeting has started.
Once the meeting starts, the room you are in will have the Zoom meeting icon to the right of the room name, and the avatars that are in the meeting will also have the Zoom icon.
All users that are present in the room (when you start a Zoom meeting using the "Talk" button) will get the notification to join the meeting.
