How to use the app?
After successful authorization, you will be able to use the Zoom App – Calendesk – Online Booking System as one of the available locations for your services. You can have many locations for your services. For example, if you meet your customers in person – you can set an address. Or, if you meet customers online, here comes the Zoom integration, allowing you to generate a dynamic conferencing link.
In the “Services” tab, select an “Edit” button or create a new one. While editing, you can add locations for your service. For example, under the “Location” section, click “Add a location,” where you can choose Zoom as a communication channel with a client.
A customer who makes a booking, indicating Zoom as the location for the service, will receive an email confirming the reservation. In this email, he will find a link to the Zoom meeting. When you click on this link, Zoom will allow your customer to connect with you. It’s so simple!
Where to find the Zoom Link after the booking is complete?
Here is an example where you can test your configuration and how to access the Zoom Link after the booking is complete:
- Go to Bookings and select the Add a booking button in the top right corner. Enter the booking details with the future dates – it’s important to create a booking in the future, otherwise, the link won’t be created. Make sure your service has a Zoom location selected.
- Create a booking and wait a few seconds (the link is created on the server within a few seconds).
- Reload the bookings tab (go to a different tab and go back to load the bookings again). The Zoom Link should be attached to the booking. Click the “eye” icon to display details or the “edit” icon.
