Does Zoom allow you to have two meetings scheduled at the same time  initiated from the same account?   IE two 50 person meetings at 6pm?

Licensed users on Enterprise, Business, and Education accounts can host up to 2 meetings at the same time. Both meetings need to be started by the original meeting host or by an alternative host. The host can leave the meeting and pass host privileges to another user if needed.

Hi @tschultz89 , 

It is possible, but it depends on your account type. You can find out more about hosting concurrent meetings

Hi i would love to join you please can i join

Please can i join it would be a good time with me i will not be silly i need a friend😁

 

Thanks Dan.

If a licensed user scheduled 3 meetings at the same time by mistake, does it mean the host/the alternative host can't start the 3rd meeting? Thanks.

Our tests have not shown a limit to the number of meetings that can be in one user account as long as there are different folk to host them. For instance, we have successfully run and recorded to cloud 5 concurrent meetings each with a different alternative host on one user account.

 

Edit 5/25/22:

Since this time, I've encountered the same limit as others. We have not made any changes to the account that should have caused this. I think zoom is "correcting" things.

Hello @Clifferton ,

 

Concurrent means the same user hosting more than one meeting at the same time.  Every user on your account can host their own meeting at the same time, but none of them can have two or more active meetings assigned to the same user at the same time unless they have the add-on license for concurrent meetings.

Thanks Dan, but I didn't have a question. I was responding to someone else.

 

Hi Dan,

all our staff have zoom accounts.  Our admin staff schedule a lot of meetings  for groups and on behalf of execs and are running into the  2 meeting limitation.  I know there is the concept of scheduling on behalf of others which can get difficult to keep track of, but is there anyway or any special setup that can be done to all admin staff to host/own more that just two meetings?

Does anyone have any guidelines for joining 2 Zoom meetings? Like turning off a camera if you need to come off mute and speak in the other meeting?

I've seen some folk be able to show their camera feed and microphone to more than one meeting. That is not my experience. I've noticed if I want to talk or be seen in one meeting, I need to turn my camera and mic off in the other meeting first.
