What your role within the Zoom account is and how to identify it
An account role refers to the level of admin privileges a member must have in a Zoom meeting when acting as an admin. It is important to note that each user belongs to one of the roles listed below, and each role has different permissions. You can find out what role you have by clicking on your account profile page.
There are 3 roles in the accounts:
- Owner: The owner has all privileges including the ability to manage roles.
- Administrator: You can add, edit and delete users. This includes managing API, single sign-on and meeting connectors for advanced functionality.
- Members: Members are not allowed to make any changes.
Note: The option to create custom roles is available for your account.
How do I know what type of Zoom user I am?
In the following category, you will be assigned to this selection based on the type of account you have and the spending you have made. To find your user type, go to your account’s profile page. Users under your account can view the user types assigned to them on the User Management page if you are an admin or account owner.
There are 3 types of users:
- Basic: Basic users do not have a license, they are free users. Standard users can choose between a basic plan (free) as well as a paid plan like Pro or Business. Those who subscribe to the Basic plan can host meetings for up to 100 participants; However, the session is limited to 40 minutes. As a basic user of a paid account, you inherit the default capacity of the paid account. For example, a business account has a default capacity of 300 meetings. There is no time limit for meetings of 3 or more people, although one-to-one meetings last longer than 40 minutes when 3 or more participants attend. A user cannot use add-ons for their account and user, e.g. B. large meetings, webinars or connecting a conference room.
- Licensed: The licensed public cloud user is a user who has subscribed to a paid account and can hold meetings at any time. You can host meetings regardless of the number of participants, and large meeting licenses can be purchased if you need more capacity. Additional features available to licensed users contain:
- Create a personal meeting ID based on your personal information
- information and record the meeting in Zoom
- and assume the role of alternate host if needed
- If more people are needed to schedule, assign them the work and schedule them in their absence
- Out of office, in our case via account add-ons like conference room connectors
- You have access to user add-ons such as large meetings, webinars, and personal audio conferences
- by customizing your account if you have a business or education account
- Local: Users with on-premises meeting connectors are paid accounts that can host unlimited meetings without having to upgrade to a premium account. Additional features that on-premise users will have are:
- Personalized meeting IDs that can be customized
- and can be paired with the Recording Connector for their account once set up
- so they can record it
