Zoom integration

You can join a Zoom call directly in Collaboard. With this, you have the zoom call window directly on your board.

Important: Only users with a basic or advanced subscription can start Zoom meetings via Collaboard. (If you invite someone as a guest to your board, the guest can join the zoom call in Collaboard as well).

Preparation

You need to create a meeting with Zoom to be able to use the Zoom integration in Collaboard. If you are the host of the meeting, start the meeting in your normal Zoom client.

You need to have the meeting number or invitation link and the meeting password to access the Zoom call directly in Collaboard.

If you are using the waiting room feature, you need to use the normal Zoom client to give people access to the call. 

In Collaboard

In Collaboard you find the icon to join a Zoom call on the bottom left next to the other facilitator tools. Click on this icon to start the Zoom call.

Enter the Zoom meeting number or invitation link and the password. Then click on "Join meeting".
