Making changes to a scheduled Zoom meeting

Last Updated:

Anytime you schedule a meeting, a Meeting ID is generated. If you export the meeting to your calendar, the join instructions are automatically pasted to the calendar invitation. 

You can edit or add to the pre-populated invitation text that is in your calendar invite to match your needs, such as providing more information, or a link to your privacy policy. 

Note: Any edits to a meeting that is currently in progress will not take effect. The meeting must be ended and restarted for the changes to take effect.

How to understand Meeting ID

The meeting ID is the meeting number associated with a scheduled meeting. All Zoom meetings have a unique meeting ID that are included in the meeting’s invitation text.

Important information regarding Meeting IDs:

  • You can start your meeting at any time after you scheduled it. 
  • Non-recurring meeting ID will expire 30 days after the meeting was scheduled or last started; the meeting will expire after the date it was scheduled and not on the date it was scheduled for. You can also restart the same meeting ID within 30 days.  
  • A recurring meeting ID will expire 365 days after the meeting is started on the last occurrence. You can re-use the meeting ID for future occurrences.

How to reschedule a Zoom Meeting

  • If you need to reschedule a meeting, simply update your schedule on your calendar.
  • It is not necessary to update the meeting on the Zoom scheduler unless the rescheduled date is more than 30 days away for a non-recurring meeting. 

How to add or delete invitation attendees

  • If you need to add or delete attendees, you can do so from your calendar (To: or Add Guests on calendars). 
  • There is no need to update the meeting on the Zoom scheduler. 

How to edit your scheduled meeting on the Zoom client

  • Click the Meetings, Upcoming tab, find and select the meeting, then click Edit. 
  • You can use it to update the scheduled time, however this is not necessary as the meeting can be started at any time as long as it available to edit.
