How do I add another person to my Zoom meeting?
The best way to add another participant to your Zoom meeting will be by sharing the Invite Link.
If the Zoom meeting has not started:
Open the Zoom app and the Meetings tab will be open as the home page. This gives you the option to see upcoming meetings you have scheduled.
From there, click on the scheduled meeting to find the Invite Link.
The Zoom app will give you the option to copy the invitation link.
Note: Be sure to share the invitation link in a secure manner to prevent anyone else from having access to your meeting.
If the Zoom meeting has begun:
During your meeting, tap your screen to pull up the meetings controls toolbar and tap the Participants icon.
Next, tap Invite at the bottom-left corner of the participants screen.
Then choose from Send Message, Invite Contacts, or Copy Invite Link.
If you choose Send Message, it will open a text message for you to text a link to whoever you want to invite to the meeting.
If you select Invite Contacts, you will need to select their name from the list or search for a contact. Click the individual you would like to invite. You can select multiple contacts. Then, click Invite in the top-right corner. Selected participants will be immediately invited to the current meeting.
If you select Copy Invite Link, it will copy the meeting join link and you can send the copied link to any email, chat thread, or other messaging device.
Note: Make sure that you are aware of any Meeting Passcode. The person you invite will need the meeting passcode. If the meeting is set up with a meeting passcode, the invitation you send will also have the meeting passcode.
