40 Minute Free Meeting


I have the Basic Free plan.  I want to schedule a free 40 minute meeting, but I am only given the option of scheduling a 30 minute meeting.  How do I schedule the 40 minute session?

Welcome to the Zoom Community, @JillKam.


Actually, the duration of the meeting isn't used by Zoom -- it's really only used for your own planning purposes, so the drop-down only allows 15 minute increments.  Your meeting is never "cut off" at the end of the scheduled timeframe.


Schedule your meeting and stay as long as it will let you... which, for a Basic account, is 40 minutes from the time you start the meeting.  Not from the time the meeting was scheduled to start.  So if you arrive at 5 minutes before the hour, your meeting will only last to 35 minutes past the hour -- a total of 40 minutes.
