Adding external users to Zoom Team Chat


I will have 50 or so students participating in a Zoom discussion. They are from various countries and organizations - I do not have their contact details. After the live session is over, I want to invite the students to continue discussion asynchronously in Zoom Teams Chat.


How do I invite them in to Zoom Teams Chat?


Were this Slack, Discord etc, I could send the students a link or QR code....

Hi, @lyonsmik,


Zoom Contacts can be included in chat by either requesting to be added (with your approval) or by you requesting them to join (with their approval). 

See this Zoom Support article on managing Zoom Contacts. If you will not have access to their Email address, just ask them to follow the “How to add a new contact“ section using your email address. If you do have their email address, you file those instructions with their email address.

I see. The students add me as a contact. Then, what is the next step to inviting them to my Zoom Team Chat?
