Turn off automatic calendar (mac) entry when scheduling meeting


Whenever I schedule a Zoom meeting, it automatically pops open calendar for mac and tries to create an entry. I do not want this. Therefore, I then have to manually cancel the entry, and then manually close the calendar app. 


How do I turn this feature off?


Any help much appreciated.

Hi @tbymdapc 

I'm not aware of a way to disable that when scheduling on the desktop client, but you can prevent it from opening your default calendar app. When scheduling, choose the Other Calendars option, which will just open a window with the default meeting invitation info. This allows you to copy the meeting invite, or simply dismiss that window. 


Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.
