You can add a Zoom Meeting to your Google Calendar events directly from Google Calendar. 

The Zoom Google add-on was updated 4/25/2021; after this, the Add-on might not work correctly until you re-authorize it. 

To reauthorize the add-on, you'll need to sign out of the add-on and then sign in. Signing out can be a little tricky. Be sure to follow the instructions below to sign out of the add-on


Notes about using Zoom with Google Calendar:

  • When using the add-on, make sure you are not signed in to multiple Google account with the add-on installed. This will cause issues when scheduling Zoom meetings using the add-on.
  • If you are rescheduling a Zoom meeting from Google Calendar, edit the calendar entry and change the meeting date/time. Do not drag and drop the calendar event or copy the meeting details to a different calendar entry.
