Outlook Calendar / Zoom New Event Bug


I'm having a weird bug that I'm trying to solve. For context, my zoom is integrated with my outlook mail/calendar. I also have it on the setting where it was automatically generate a zoom meeting link when I create new events.


From outlook calendar, I hit "NEW EVENT" to start to draft up a new meeting invite. As soon as I add a guest, like within seconds of adding a team member's email into the invitees section of the form, a zoom meeting is created and shows up in my zoom calendar as a new event that's happening in 5 minutes. I haven't even had a chance to put in the correct day and time yet or actually send out the meeting invite.


So I am constantly having to delete zoom meetings from the zoom app homepage "upcoming meetings" area because it's filling up with meetings with incorrect times that are just drafts. 


I hope this makes sense? Basically, every time I open a new event, before I can actually create it, a zoom meeting is created automatically and shows incorrect times/dates and is always starting in 5 minutes from when I even just OPENED a draft calendar invite. 


Anyone know what could be happening?



having the EXACT same issue. If you come across any other posts with a solution please let me know. Also are you on a macbook? Every user that has the same issue at my company is on a mac.


This is likely due to a bug in the integration logic. You have a few options. You could update the meetings in both places each time and remove the redundant meetings. There is also a Zoom marketplace app, Salepager, built for scheduling Zoom meetings that integrate with both Outlook and Zoom correctly. 


Hello there!

I'm sorry for the late response. We have released a new version 6.1.1 kindly update your app and would also advise using the Outlook Add-in, it allows you to manage scheduling within the Outlook web and desktop apps.

The add-in can be deployed and configured by Outlook admins and, once installed by users, it allows you to 
add a Zoom meeting to a new or existing Outlook calendar event

Have a great day!

Hi this issue still occurs on 6.1.1 and it is occuring via the outlook add in, just drafting up an outlook meeting and adding a zoom via the add in adds a zoom meeting to my zoom calendar automatically. Prior to me saving anything and even if I discard the draft. This happens to everyone on a mac within our company.
