Zoom Meeting Essentials

Step-By-Step Instructions for Creating a Meeting Invitation


  • Provide your Skidmore username and password

  • Go to My Meetings > Schedule a New Meeting

  • Provide the requested information. As you scroll down to Save, leave all other settings alone.

  • Copy and paste the Join URL of the meeting (it begins with https://skidmore …. ) or click on Copy Invitation. Begin composing an email to attendee(s) and paste the Meeting URL or the Invitation into the body of the email message. That is the link your attendee will click on to join the meeting you are hosting when it is scheduled to begin.

Note: The first time you host a Zoom meeting on your computer, you will be asked to download and install the Zoom browser plugin.
