Free Appointy and Zoom integration for virtual teams and businesses during COVID-19
Automatically create and share Zoom meeting details for every new meeting, appointment, or class
For people everywhere, staying connected is now more important than ever.
Since meeting in person is no more a safe option due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, both businesses and consumers have resorted to virtual meetings, appointments, and classes for their interactions.
Whether it is to stay fit without the gym, to take advice from financial advisors, connect with co-workers, or to attend virtual classes – video conferencing has become an integral part of everyone’s daily lives.
As business owners who provide these services, fulfilling these new demands virtually can be a challenge. Scheduling and coordinating meetings while working from home and taking online sessions can be a challenge.
- A lot of your time can be wasted in the email back-and-forth to figure out when your employees/customers are available in the same time slot as you.
- Adding to the facade is manually entering and remembering the information to join the meeting once scheduled.
- While all of this is happening your schedule is constantly moving. Your next scheduled meeting might be re-scheduled or may even get canceled for various reasons.
To simplify this process, Appointy has launched its new Zoom integration!
With the Appointy and Zoom integration, you can be in full control of your online meeting scheduling. Not only will it help you schedule your meetings better, but also help you in managing your productivity by automating the manual work for you.
Let us explain how:
Powerful scheduling automation with Appointy and Zoom integration
With Appointy + Zoom integration, you can:
1. Create and share Zoom meetings automatically:
When a new virtual meeting is scheduled with Appointy, a Zoom video conference link is automatically created and added to the meeting details.
Since the Zoom meeting is scheduled from your booking portal where your availability is reflected in real-time, there is no back-and-forth in choosing a time.
Also, once an event is scheduled, the Zoom meeting details will also be automatically sent in the confirmation emails/texts and will be added to your participants’ appointment calendars.
Note: While setting up the integration, you can choose the meetings or services for which you want a Zoom meeting to be created so that you can offer both virtual and in-person meetings from your Appointy booking portal.
2. Reduce no shows with meeting reminders:
Send meeting details in automated email and text reminders at preset times before a meeting so that your invitees never miss a meeting again and can join in from any device.
You can also customize your reminder emails with any additional information you want to include like meeting agenda, optional participants, MOM of the previous meetings, etc.
3. Take complete control of your meetings:
This integration enables you to be in full control of your meetings – even before they start. You can edit meeting and conference settings easily as your requirement. Mute participants, allow them to join before the host, and automatically disable their videos in advance.
4. Update meeting details in real-time:
We understand the amount of extra work that goes when an online meeting is rescheduled.
With Appointy and Zoom integration, you do not have to worry about any confusion due to rescheduling meetings. If a meeting is rescheduled using Appointy, the Zoom meeting details will automatically be updated in real-time.
