Hi all 🙂

This is Mans from Sweden.

 

I am more of a tech nerd, and I was actually looking for how to setup SMS reminders to Meeting Participants when I came across this Community.

Does anyone know how to set that up?

I guess that I can increase the number of registrants to actually attend the meeting if I remind them via SMS.

 

Cheers Mans

Hi @manthe ! Yes, you can set up meeting reminders. Please check out this article Enabling upcoming meeting reminders. If you have any additional questions, you can always visit our Meetings board for assistance 😊

Hi @Bri and thanks for your reply. I read the article but I want to send SMS reminders to participants that have registered for an upcoming meeting. The article explained how to setup up reminders for Zoom users.

I want to send SMS to registrants even if they have not installed the Zoom app yet. Is that possible?

/Cheers Mans

Hello! It's not possible to send SMS reminders to participants who haven't installed the Zoom app. However, Google Calendar might be an option you could explore.

I'm Andy from Hermitage, TN (part of Nashville).

I've been using Zoom since 2016 and love it.

I pre-date the World Wide Web {anyone remember UseNet? Fido BBS?'} and AOL.

I like helping people get the most out of whatever technology they need help with.

I vaguely remember AOL--welcome to the community @AGH3rd 😄👋

I remember the AOL days. I also used Compuserve in the early 1990s. It was very limited by today's standards, but still magical in its own way.

William B Peckham (WilliamBPeckham) here.   Ancient  Sysadmin and IT warrior, I have never used zoom.

Located in the northern panhandle of West Virginia USA (not far from Pittsburgh PA), 

loving playing with technology and wishing I was fishing while drinking FAR too much coffee! 

 

Recently I have been asked to prepare to attend zoom calls, just in case.  I find a couple of problems with that.  My main desktop driver is a Pinebook Pro (Architecture AARCH64) running Manjaro Linux, and I have not found a zoom client for that platform.   I use browsers FireFox, Chrome, and Vivaldi. 

 

I love it that there is such a well developed community here.  I hope you can provide suggestions or links that might make life easier for a new guy on uncommon hardware.

I work a the Center for Teaching and Learning at Université Laval, Quebec City, Canada.
