Setting Up a Recurring Zoom Meeting or Class

Tags zoom

Faculty can set up recurring zoom meetings each semester for routine class meetings or virtual office hours. By using a recurring meeting, you will have a single meeting ID and URL address for each scheduled meeting time. This saves set up time because you only have to do it once. It also helps participants know where to log in each time.

How to Set Up a Recurring Zoom Meeting

Step 1: Log In to the Zoom Web Application

From the web address, click the button "Login to Create/Edit Account."

Step 3: Enter Meeting Details

Create the details of your recurring meeting. In the topic field, enter a descriptive title that you and your participants will be able to recognize. Set your first meeting date, time, and the meeting duration. Check the box to indicate that this is a recurring meeting. Select the frequency of recurrence, such as weekly. Check the boxes by day to indicate if the meeting meets once a week, twice a week, or more frequently. Finally, set the final meeting date.

Step 4: Complete the Meeting Setup Details

After setting up the recurrance details, be sure to scroll down the page to adjust the remaining setup options for your meeting. This includes whether registration is required (not recommended), initial video connection, audio options, and other meeting options. These settings can be edited later should you wish to make changes.

View and Share Meeting Details

Upon saving a meeting in your Zoom web account, the meeting details will be displayed. You should copy the Meeting ID, Join URL, or other invitation details from the "copy the invitation link" and share the details with the people that you want to invite. For classes, you may paste these details into an eLearn Announcement, Calendar item, or Content page. You can also email the connection details to others.
