We feel video conferencing is important to the day to day running of a business, and agree that zoom is one of the most used video conferencing tools out there today. Therefore we have ensured we have ways for you to integrate this video conferencing tool with Clinked. Explore below how you can use Zoom with Clinked:
Zapier & Zoom
Did you know that you can sync many of your software products to your Clinked account?
We’ve partnered up with Zapier to help Clinked integrate with the software products that are part of your organisation’s processes and workflow. Clinked can be integrated with your Zoom account in various ways using Zapier to automate workflow using Zaps.
Within Clinked, we’ve found the most useful for our clients is for New Meetings. Let’s explore:

iFrames & Zoom
An iFrame is a great way to keep a central link for a Zoom meeting, this way you can use the same link each time and everyone knows where to find it, see below the steps to take to set this up:
Go to account settings in input 'zoom.us' into the iframe links section and click update as shown below:
Navigate to a group, select the notes tool and select new note.
Name the note, then use the drop down 'insert link' button as you can see here, and select Embed IFrame.
Enter your this zoom link here and input your personal meeting ID where you see highlighted. Make sure the width is 11 and the height is 300 as shown in the image below. Once you have done this you will see the Zoom preview and you can select save. If you wish to have this shown on your homepage you can add this in with the edit widgets feature.
