The last two Zoom meetings I have hosted have not allowed participants to enter the meeting because they get a message that the host is already involved in a meeting. I schedule the meetings and send the participants the link in an email. I start the meeting a few minutes before the scheduled time, and wait for the participants to enter. When they do not enter, I call and ask why and they tell me the same story--the zoom link tells us the host is already involved in another meeting. Can you tell me why this is happening?
This happens frequently with my participants. I go to the scheduled meeting and start it and participants get the "host in another meeting" message even though the only meeting I am in is the one to which I invited them. This seems to be a problem for quite a few of us.
Hi twade, you possibly saw my other post. Whether by coincidence (or just brilliance 😉 ) It seems to have been fixed or I've fixed it. Here was my solution - if it works for you I'd love to know and so would others. Go to Personal/settings Top tab choose "Meeting" Scroll to the very bottom and you should see "Integration Authentication" Click "Regenerate" How/why this seems to have worked I cannot say, but would love to know if this works for you, too. It's been a very frustrating week!!
I was able to get support on this from Zoom and they found the problem. There's a toggle buried deep in the settings that allows us to start a meeting using our PMID (Personal Meeting ID) and for no apparent reason, mine had been turned off. (Conspiracy theories, anyone?!) Read this:
This happened to me twice today with clients. They had to send me their zoom links eventually after we wasted a lot of time. It feels very unprofessional. (Only happened since I started paying for zoom!)
