Can the link from one meeting be used for other meetings?

When generating a link, you must be aware of the configuration you make in it, since the result of the type of meeting you will plan will depend on it. There are one-time links, with which you will not be able to run more than one meeting and once the link’s validity period has elapsed, it will disappear from the list of pending meetings.

On the other hand, you will have the possibility of extending your meeting to various sessions using a special type of link in order to socialize the topic you are dealing with not only in one session, but in up to 50 successive ones , for this use the following type of meeting :

H3 How do you create a permanent meeting on Zoom?

Permanent sessions are part of the payment tools offered by the Zoom videoconferencing platform. You can use this type of session if you are the creditor of an account with privileges to use rooms without time limits to hold your meetings.

However, in a certain way you can legally run a meeting with “permanent” characteristics by having a free account , for this you must create recurring meeting links.

With these links you will be able to carry out up to 50 sessions followed by a meeting or videoconference with the people with whom you have shared your invitation , so you will always have a chance to carry out your extensive meetings and take the information to your students.

Enter your Zoom account and click on the “Schedule” button on the main panel, fill in the “Topic” data and click on the “Recurring Meeting” option , click on save and get your link.

Where do I find the link to share the meeting on Zoom?

Depending on the device where you are working, you will have to carry out different steps to obtain your link and share it with your students or the people with whom you want to have your videoconference. Follow the steps according to the device where you are working:

H3 On a PC

If you have a computer you will find two possibilities to find and share your Zoom meeting link, the first is through the Zoom desktop application :

  • Open the app.
  • Fill in the login details.
  • Click on the “Schedule” button.
  • Set the date and time of your meeting to generate the link.
  • Save the changes.
  • Find the meetings tab in the top menu and copy the link.
  • Share with your students or people of interest.

The second option is to carry out the management through the Zoom website, that is, by logging into your account from the platform’s online portal:

  • Enter the web portal with your credentials.
  • In the left menu click on “Meetings”.
  • Click the “Schedule a Meeting” button.
  • Set the date and time of your meeting or the features you want, for example, if you want a recurring meeting, click on the option and you will have it.
  • Save your configuration changes.
  • Go to the “Meetings” tab and get your link for the video conference.

H3 From the mobile device

For greater comfort on the mobile device, the Zoom app is used in order to easily access your videoconferences , so you should initially download your Zoom Cloud Meetings app from the Play Store. Unlike the desktop app, the mobile app will take you directly to meetings, from here follow the steps mentioned in the previous section and you will get your meeting link.

What is the correct way to invite someone to a meeting on Zoom?

There are actually several ways to invite someone to join a Zoom meeting, and none of these ways is usually wrong. Although the most used way and let’s say the most formal is through links or invitation links. You must be careful to properly configure your links if you do not want someone who does not have your permission to sneak into your online conference.

In addition to the link, what other forms of invitation can I use on Zoom?

Each user correctly registered in Zoom is the owner of a meeting room that is usually limited to 40-minute sessions because it is a free account in principle. However, at the time of registration you will obtain an ID and you will be able to manage a password or code that will be used to share with the people you want to be linked to a meeting that you hold outside of the schedule.

There are some meetings that you will eventually be able to do without scheduling them through the Meetings system that generates the invitation link, so let’s say it is an informal way of holding meetings, although it is also valid. Here you can send the ID of your room along with a code that will allow the person you choose to join the meeting you are doing.

Another way to make the invitation is live, that is, at the time the meeting is in progress you can invite anyone you want by pressing the “Participants” button and then “Invite”, choose the contact or send an email to email of the person you want to invite to the videoconference.

In general, Zoom is one of the most used platforms to make exchanges through video calls. If you don’t have the app, you can download it from the Zoom website and start the experience of using this excellent tool.
