How to Keep Uninvited Guests Out of Your Zoom Meeting – Zoom Blog – Creating and Sharing a Zoom Link
I noticed that a few of my colleagues have cool personalized URLs for Zoom that they use when sending out meeting invitations. I want one too. How do I set up a personal link in Zoom for organizations? Zoom meeting links are not something you want to type in, but nowadays most everything is going to include a clickable link. As I said earlier, organizations and institutions can have this, but individuals with free accounts do not have this feature enabled.
Notice all the links on the left side. Some may seem redundant with what you have in the Zoom app itself, but these are your institutional account settings and are worth a quick review to ensure everything is set up as desired. In particular, since at DU we use the recording feature a lot, I like to check that to ensure the default settings are as I need. The Personal Link information is just a bit further down on the Profile area, so scroll down until you see….
Try it! Then you can click on the open eye to mask it again. Notice the requirements of the shortened URL: It must be characters and it must start with a letter and can contain only letters, numbers, and periods. Your organization will have a different subdomain with zoom.
Choose another Personal Link Name and try again. But what if you pick a unique name that is a duplicate of a global Zoom shortcut? Or, um, at home, but virtually in the office. You know what I mean!

We are getting an upgraded account, which allows us to have up to 1, attendees. I’m not sure as to whether any meeting links we set up pre-upgrade on a non PRO Zoom licence , will be affected by the upgrade?
I know that not being cut off after 45 mins is one benefit. Essentially, I want to ensure that if we set meeting links up in a non PRO Zoom account, that when the account is upgraded, then that automatically gets added to the existing Zoom account, and any existing meeting links are also upgraded automatically? Go to Solution. Hi FTM , There should be no problem for a meeting you’ve already scheduled and sent out links for after you upgrade your account.
Just be sure that the licenses Pro license and Large meeting add-on are assigned to the host of that meeting before you start the meeting.
In general, Zoom checks the license of the meeting host when the meeting is started, not when it’s scheduled. Thus, if it was scheduled as a Basic account, but started as a Pro account, Zoom will allow access to all Pro features. Same thing for the add-on. If you start the meeting as a standard Pro user, you can have up to participants, but if you start the meeting with a Large meeting add-on assigned to you, your attendance capacity will go up to the max associated with that add-on.
Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed. View solution in original post. Hello Bort, I just upgraded from Basic to Pro, but when I went to schedule my first meeting it still had the 30 minute time limit from Basic. How do I correct this? Make sure you sign out and back in on the device showing that message.
It is likely that it has not yet synced your new account status since the upgrade, and a fresh login will force that sync. Zoom Community.
