In Schoox you can connect your Academy with your Zoom meetings account in order to create Live Session events. That means that you, as an Academy Admin, as well as all Event Instructors if they are given the option to, will be able to use one Zoom account for all of your Live Sessions.
To do so, simply navigate to your Academy Settings, by selecting the Admin tab from the upper navigation menu. Under Your Academy, select Academy Settings. In the list that appears, click on Live Sessions Integration, select Integration with Zoom and then click on the Connect button next to the Zoom meetings account option.
You will be redirected to Zoom and you will need to enter your zoom credentials in the panel that opens.
Please note that if it is the first time that your account is connected with Schoox, you will need to allow Schoox to access your Zoom account.
Tip! Permissions in Zoom Meetings
In order to be able to set up the integration, you will need to check your Zoom account and make sure that you have all of the necessary permissions enabled:
- View and manage all user meetings (write permission)
- View users’ information and manage users (write permission)
- View all user information (read permission)
- View report data (read permission)
- View all user meetings (read permission)
You can now fill in the capacity data. If you have an up to 25 users Zoom account, for example, you won’t be able to invite more than 25 users for your event.
Last but not least, you are also able to select whether only Admins will be able to use the academy zoom account you have just connected.
Under the Zoom Integration tab of your Academy Settings, you will be now able to find the relevant setting.
Select "Yes", if you want only the academy admins to be able to use the Academy Zoom account to initiate events.
Alternative hosts in Zoom allow for someone specific other than the host to start the meeting. Alternative hosts must have a Zoom account, and that account must be associated with the host's - belonging to the same corporate Zoom account, for example. To allow alternative hosts in your academy, set this option to Yes.
You are now ready to start creating your events! Once you are ready, initiate them using the connected Zoom Webinars account!
