Google Calendar integration fail


When I attempt to integrate my google calendar with zoom so that meetings automatically appear on my google calendar, I receive the error message: Add failed, the calendar-related access permissions are not allowed" (screenshot attached. Please how can I troubleshoot to find resolution? Thank you.



I'm having the same issue and have done everything that Rachel has suggested and I still get the error message when trying to integrate Google calendar to Zoom. Any suggestions?


I'm having the exact same issues as above with the popup notification of "Add failed, the calendar-related access permissions are not allowed." I've tried the recommended steps from Rachel Gomez, I've tried to adjust all the settings in admin for allowing google calendar integrations. I don't understand if this is a Zoom issue or a Google Calendar issue. Any updates on this problem?


I am having the same issue!!  How do we contact a human being at Zoom to get this addressed?  HELP


I can't even get someone from Zoom to reply to 2 support tickets for billing to renew my subscription.


I'm having the same problem too and followed the same steps.


Same problem - and the bonus is I can't schedule any more than one future meeting. Attempting to do so just edits the date and time of the original meeting and auto-sends change request to all participants! 😡


Same issue.  So frustrating!!  Any updates?

Have you heard of Zoom AI Companion?

Still didn't work.  Same Error: "Add Failed - the calendar-related access permissions are not allowed"


Carla, this did not work. Can we please have a 1:1 and I'm happy to be a guinea pig how to make this integration?  Zoom is so much more of a PITA to use without the integration in place.
