Re: Zoom meetings and backup host question

Thanks for asking this question Jaynie. I’m in the same boat. Our chapter’s Zoom Pro license is in my name. I have wondered how to let someone else host a meeting without my having to open it up???  I have a conflict for one of our future meetings due to another commitment.  I can assign an alternate host once the meeting begins, but do I have to be the one to begin it?

Subject: [HLAATech] Zoom meetings and backup host question

 

Hi All,

I was wondering how chapters are hosting their Zoom meetings. Currently I am hosting them using my Zoom Pro license. I feel uneasy...what if I can't start a meeting? Sick, hit by a bus, etc. Everyone would already have the meeting link and no host to start.

The "Alternate Host" only works for Business/Enterprise accounts. So no backup option there...

The only idea I had was to have a chapter email account and have Zoom Pro attached to that email (along with our AVA Pro license which I also have). We would have to be sure not to schedule meetings at the same time. 

Your thoughts?
