Meeting Summary and Recording Link

When the meeting ends, the Bot will post a meeting summary and a recording link (if the meeting is recorded in cloud).  However, this will not be posted if the meeting used your Personal Meeting ID. You can disable the setting to "always use PMI for Instant Meetings" on your Zoom Profile.
