Managing Meetings

I have a multiple day audit with different group meetings about every hour.  I'm trying to figure out how best to schedule things.  At first I thought about schedule 3 day long Zoom sessions.  My concern is that I have to host the meeting - admit people  -  leave the meeting - and then return to do the same for the next session.  Should I schedule individual sessions so I can start, leave, and then return? I want the same link for all meetings though.  Thank you!

If you want to use the same link, then you will need to use one single meeting. You can set up a meeting for the first day, then set it as recurring for the following days. You will need to Start it each day, as an instance of a meeting has a limit of 30hrs.

 

If you want to use Waiting Room, then you will have no choice but to be present to Admit people - unless you nominate a Co-Host.

 

But each time you leave the meeting, and without a Co-Host, Zoom will prompt you to nominate one of your Participants to become Host - or if you leave without doing so, Zoom will pass Host privileges to generally the first Participants who joined.  You would then re-claim host when you re-join the Meeting.

 

If you use a passcode instead of Waiting Room, and enable "participants to join anytime", participants could join at anytime without you - if they have the passcode - without needing to be admitted. But you may not want that.

 

Unless you have trusted Participants who you can engage as Co-Hosts, I would recommend you moderate the timeline by being logged in on a secondary computer or device to one side.

 

Hope this helps.
