Guilty of making a bad assumption. Based on the large number of posts in the Zoom Community about "I paid for a Pro account but I'm still not Licensed and my meetings get cut off at 40 minutes," I had made the assumption that Zoom does not automatically assign a newly-purchased Pro license to the owner and sole user on an account.
Yesterday, while recording some screen captures for an upcoming video I'm creating, I discovered -- much to my surprise -- that the account I purchased while recording did in fact get assigned to the owner and only user on the account.
And yet, the "New license not assigned" posts continue to come in!
The question I'm now researching is, "Under what conditions does Zoom do the automatic license assignment, and when does it not do the license assignment?" I've done a quick review of the latest posts, and one or more of these situations seem to be present in many of them:
In some cases, it appears that there is indeed a glitch in the application or recognition of the License that can only be fixed on the back end by Zoom Support.
I've developed a macro to provide this information to most posts with these issues:
(Don't know what a macro is on your Community profile? You're missing out!)
You need to assign your newly purchased license to your user account. See this web page for assistance:
Follow these steps taken from the article:
The license is now applied to your user account and you can use it immediately.
If this does not fix your issue, please submit a support ticket to our Billing team here and they will be able to assist you.
If you have any insight or opinions on why these situations of "New license not assigned" continue to occur, I'd like to know! Maybe the automatic assignment process can be tweaked to reduce the number of posts with this issue.
I have no idea why I can't access my zoom pro having purchased it two weeks ago now. I assumed that I would receive an email following payment, confirming my purchase and providing next steps. Why is there no contact at all from them? It seems crazy. Anyway, I've been trying to follow your advice in assuming that I need to assign a single licence (although I've only just opened up a basic account & I've never had this or pro before) but I'm struggling even to do that. There doesn't seem to be anywhere to locate or search for the user (is that because I have just the one account?) never mind find an edit button next to it. Please can you help with this? It's all so confusing.
Welcome to the Zoom Community, @HMS77.
So you are correct that in many cases like this, you are THE owner, and there's nobody else involved.
When you go to the Admin -> User Management -> Users menu, you should see something like this:
Except yours likely says "Basic" instead of "Licensed".
If yours says Licensed, you should be able to have meetings longer than 40 minutes... but if not, follow my advice in the above post about making a Support Ticket to the Billing department -- preferably while logged into your account (which makes it easier to locate you, since the Ticket will be associated directly with your account at that point).
If yours says "Basic", then click the Edit button on the right side, and you should see an "Edit User" screen. If you have purchased a Pro License, you can click the radio button in front of Licensed:
and click the Save button.
If that doesn't change your status from Basic to Licensed, I'd still highly recommend sending a Billing Ticket using the steps above. They should be able to assist you. Please be patient -- it might take a few days to respond.
