How to use the Workplace Zoom bot

Zoom meeting information is shared in group chats with the Workplace Zoom Bot. In a Facebook group chat, you can use the following commands to communicate with other members:

  • @Zoom Help: This command displays a list of all commands available in Zoom.
  • @Zoom start: You can use this command to start a Zoom meeting immediately.
  • @Zoom start : This command allows you to start an instant meeting on the specified topic.
  • @Zoom join : To use this command, you must enter the identification code of the meeting you want to join.

If the meeting was recorded in the cloud and ended, the bot will publish a meeting summary along with the recording link (if the meeting was recorded in the cloud). You can turn off the setting to always use PMI for instant meetings in your Zoom profile to prevent the meeting from being posted when using your personal meeting ID.
