Zoom - Scheduling on Behalf of Others


Zoom Schedule on Behalf of Others

This document is for information on how to utilize the Zoom Platform to schedule Zoom Meetings on others behalf.
**note: To provide another user access for scheduling in your Outlook Calendar, you need to follow these instructions.

Every user has the ability to share with others access to schedule on their behalf. Those wishing to schedule for someone else, may not update settings to do so themselves. The user sharing their Zoom Meeting abilities must be the one to update their profile settings in the Web Portal.

Navigate to the Profile Setting page of your account


and scroll down to the bottom of the page, under the section titled Other -> Schedule Privilege

From here, you can click the + button beside “Assign scheduling privilege to” and add the user that you wish to give rights to for scheduling on your behalf.

Zoom Outlook Add-In

Within Outlook, the user can create a calendar Invite to setup a Zoom meeting on the behalf of the user that has assigned them the scheduling privileges.

Simply open a new event/appointment within the Outlook Calendar.
Then input the details of the meeting (title, time, etc). Once that has been completed, on the top right hand side of the ribbon bar, select the Zoom Add-In Icon
