Why is my paid account suddenly limited to 40 minutes.  Before now it was an unlimited time.

Hello @Chris6414 ,

 

Per http://status.zoom.us there has been an issue identified that is impacting some paid users reverting them to Basic.  Support is working fixing this now.  Hopefully this will be resolved for you sooner than later.

Replying to my own post, here.  By some magic I managed to get to tech support and they helped me assign my license to myself as a user in "User Management" via web portal .  No explanation why this never was an issue in the past, but that's okay.  I'm happy to have the issue resolved and pass it along here.

Thanks.  This makes more sense than their telling me it's not an issue and that I needed to make myself a User.  I appreciate this better explanation.  The fix they suggested allowed me to schedule a longer meeting but if it fails I'll know to go back to them and insist on a fix.

Thanks for you post.  I think I'm having the same issue.  Got the pro license a couple months ago and just hosted first meeting which stopped after 40 minutes.  Can you give a little more detail about how you "fixed" the issue?  The account, of course, has an owner (me), and I set up an admin and a user.  I used the admin role to schedule and host the meeting that timed out.  Looking at the roles, the owner is shown licensed, but the other two show basic, and can't be changed to licensed because it "requires another license".

I had the same problem on Saturday evening, suddenly I was marked as Basic and my family catch-up was terminated after 40 minutes, even though I am paid up to mid April.  I posted this as a problem and this morning when I went in to check if anything had changed and I had been reverted to Licensed from Basic.  I don’t know if this was the result of my problem report or just a correction of a fault which caused the original error, but sorted for now.

I'm having the same problem.  Got the pro license a couple months ago.  I created an admin and a user.  Using the admin role, ran a meeting this week that stopped after 40 minutes.  Looking at the three roles (owner, admin, and user), only the owner shows licensed; the other two show basic.  Trying to change either of them to licensed, I get the message that I'd need to add additional licenses.  If there's a work around, is it posted somewhere?

I am having the same problem.  I have a paid account, but the 40-minute time limit pops up.

Hi there, I have paid to upgrade licenses but still my account as basic.

I have the same issue.   Very frustrating to pay for the service as a loyal ZOOM customer for years, and than my "big" meeting gets interrupted after x minutes.   Been going on for months now.
