The Zoom for GSuite Add-on looks like it changes settings incorrectly when you click Update Meeting.


I can schedule for someone else in the Zoom for Gsuite Addon in google calendar.  However when I go back in to add an alt host or turn on waiting room or turn off "Only signed in users can join" and click Update Meeting it looks like it changes the meeting Back to Myself.   In the web portal the settings are correct.


Dear Zoom, please fix and adequately test this add on!

You are freaking out our assistants who schedule for other people.
