Automatically Start and Stop Scheduled Meetings in Zoom Rooms Follow

Overview

You can specify that meetings in Zoom Rooms follow the Google or Microsoft calendar associated with the room. You can set the meetings to start automatically at the start time in the calendar and/or to stop at the end time. These options eliminate the manual step of using the controller to start and stop meetings in the room.
