Autostart meeting starts meeting when another meeting is active

genesteinbacher

We were in a Zoom meeting in our conference room that was started by an external client.   The Zoom Room in that conference room is set to auto-start meetings.  Another meeting was scheduled in this conference room an hour after the active meeting,  The subsequent meeting is set to auto-start.  Our meeting went longer than expected and suddenly the next meeting automatically started and kicked us out of the meeting we were in. 

 

Is there a way to tell Zoom not to auto-start a meeting with another meeting is active?

I’m not a Zoom  Room guru, but take a look at this Zoom Support article – it seems to have your answer there:

This article shows how to enable the automatic start/stop option but doesn't show how to prevent a meeting from automatically starting when another Zoom meeting is already in session.

That’s probably because the only way to stop a scheduled meeting from interrupting one in progress is to turn off automatic start. Preference is given to the meeting about to start, because the new meeting  attendees are expecting a meeting, and it’s the responsibility of the prior meeting attendees  to leave on time. Sorry – this is how scheduling works!

 

 Either be interrupted when there’s a meeting scheduled after yours, or require all meetings to be started manually. Those are the options currently.
