If the desired user is not in the list, you have to send the conference link to zoom. Click the line that appears at the bottom of the "Copy Invitation" dialog box from your contact list. An email, social network chat or other messenger is opened, the text with the link is inserted and the message is sent to the desired person.

  • Open the application installed on the mobile device.
  • The login button is pressed. Enter a password and an email address.

A window will appear with the available ways to send an invitation. The first option is to send it through: social networks, sms, email clients, messengers (watsap, vyber, etc.). Just copy the invitation and paste it into the message.

Option 2 – is an invitation through contacts. When you go to the section, a user is added from an existing list of friends, ie regular members. Once added, the user will receive a notification in which they will have to click “Accept”.

Option 3 – allows you to create a link on zoom, and is called “Copy URL”. The section copies the link to the video conference and forwards it to the potential participant, conveniently.

Option 4 – is to use the identifier of the video conversation.

The ID, along with the password to log in, is sent to the other person. And it will join the conversation by entering the received data.
