Scheduling privilege Follow

Overview

Scheduling privilege is designed for a user or an executive admin to:

  • You can assign or delegate a user or multiple users in your account to schedule meetings on your behalf. 
  • You can also schedule meetings on behalf of a user (or multiple users) that has assigned you scheduling privilege. If both users have a webinar license, they can also schedule webinars for you.
  • You and the assigned scheduler must be Licensed or On-Prem.
  • Users with Scheduling Privilege on your account will be able to manage and act as an alternative host for all meetings.

Note: If you receive a 3003 error when edit or canceling a meeting for another user, check that scheduling privileges have not been modified. Also, check that you and the user you are scheduling for are both Licensed users. 

This article covers:

Prerequisites

  • Both users must be Licensed or On-Prem and be on the same account
  • For a webinar, both users must have the webinar add-on
  • If scheduling for another user through a Zoom plugin, add-in, or add-on, install the latest version:

Setting up scheduling privilege 

  1. Sign in to the Zoom web portal.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Under Other, click the plus sign (+) next to Assign scheduling privilege to.
  4. Enter one or more email addresses in the window, separated with a comma.
  5. Click Assign.

If the user was assigned successfully, they will appear under Assign Scheduling Privilege to. However, they will need to sign out of the Zoom desktop client and sign in again before they will be able to schedule for you there. 

If scheduling privilege cannot be assigned because the user is not on your account or is not a Licensed user, you will receive an error message.
