Below we list what's important to our plugin.

  • Access the Zoom JWT App Page. Choose Develop → Build App.
  • Log in with your Zoom credentials
  • If prompted over which app type to create, click Create on the app type JWT
  • Add a name (it's not important)
  • Fill the App details (these are also not important for the integration itself)
  • Copy the API Key and API Secret
  • Create or edit a calendar. You will se the fields Zoom API Key and Zoom API secret. Past the values there. The email should also be a perfect match.
  • You can test the connection by pressing the Test button.

2) Adding Zoom Info to Email Notifications

Don't forget to add the Zoom link to notifications, otherwise users will not receive it.

The placeholder {booking-zoom-link} will be replaced by the Zoom link attached to that booking.

TIP: Calendars With and Without Zoom

Email templates apply to all calendars, whether they have Zoom integration or not.

In calendars without Zoom integration, the {booking-zoom-link} placeholder will show different labels. You can configure them from the Labels settings.


Admin - Finding The Zoom Link

The admin can review the Zoom link of all bookings at any time by simply checking its Details.

And then the Booking metabox, where the Zoom meeting link is located.
