Why is my paid account suddenly limited to 40 minutes.  Before now it was an unlimited time.

Replying to my own post, here.  By some magic I managed to get to tech support and they helped me assign my license to myself as a user in "User Management" via web portal .  No explanation why this never was an issue in the past, but that's okay.  I'm happy to have the issue resolved and pass it along here.

Thanks.  This makes more sense than their telling me it's not an issue and that I needed to make myself a User.  I appreciate this better explanation.  The fix they suggested allowed me to schedule a longer meeting but if it fails I'll know to go back to them and insist on a fix.

Thanks for you post.  I think I'm having the same issue.  Got the pro license a couple months ago and just hosted first meeting which stopped after 40 minutes.  Can you give a little more detail about how you "fixed" the issue?  The account, of course, has an owner (me), and I set up an admin and a user.  I used the admin role to schedule and host the meeting that timed out.  Looking at the roles, the owner is shown licensed, but the other two show basic, and can't be changed to licensed because it "requires another license".

I had the same problem on Saturday evening, suddenly I was marked as Basic and my family catch-up was terminated after 40 minutes, even though I am paid up to mid April.  I posted this as a problem and this morning when I went in to check if anything had changed and I had been reverted to Licensed from Basic.  I don’t know if this was the result of my problem report or just a correction of a fault which caused the original error, but sorted for now.

I'm having the same problem.  Got the pro license a couple months ago.  I created an admin and a user.  Using the admin role, ran a meeting this week that stopped after 40 minutes.  Looking at the three roles (owner, admin, and user), only the owner shows licensed; the other two show basic.  Trying to change either of them to licensed, I get the message that I'd need to add additional licenses.  If there's a work around, is it posted somewhere?

Any updates on this? A handful of users I'm working with are experiencing this issue and it is disrupting their Zoom meetings. 

Thanks Chris! I was able to figure out in the "User Management" section.

Dan_ZoomSE:

 

I have had a pro account subscription for several years.  I use Zoom routinely each week for many hours and must restart my system after 40 minutes each use.  It sounds like Zoom is fixing to get ready to resolve this issue.  Any luck yet?

ok. it's HAPPENING AGAIN!!  since I make my living on zoom, I can't express enough what a pain this is. Please send an email when this is fixed? 

this problem is not resolved. I’m trying to manage a trauma informed support group. The first meeting. I scheduled people couldn’t get into the link and the meeting today. Cut off at 30 minutes and the video didn’t work, but I kept on getting messages to upgrade my account when I paid $160 already, this needs to be resolved. I submitted a ticket, but if this is not resolved, I’m reporting it to the Better Business Bbureau and filing a complaint with the North Carolina Department of Justice. If this problem has been going on since 2023 that’s taking peoples money but not providing the service

+1 here. We are experiencing this behaviour as well. zoom simply is too expensive to have flaws like this.

Edit: There might be an account misconfiguration...

This issue continues and your support takes over a month to respond. I paid almost $200 and used the service twice only to have the call cut off after 30 minutes for a trauma survivor support group.  I have submitted complaints to CA DOJ and NC DOJ where I reside. 

 

In addition, I have created a YouTube video, TikTok Video, Instagram and FB reels to educate the general public.

I am having the same problem.  I have a paid account, but the 40-minute time limit pops up.

Hi there, I have paid to upgrade licenses but still my account as basic.

I have the same issue.   Very frustrating to pay for the service as a loyal ZOOM customer for years, and than my "big" meeting gets interrupted after x minutes.   Been going on for months now.

This has happened to 3 different accounts/paid Business licenses within our organization for the past few months.  Zoom, what's causing the delay to resolve this issue?

I have also had the same issue for months and can't get a hold of anyone via phone support.

How do we fix this issue? I can't keep getting kicked out at 40 minutes. If that's the case, I'd like my money back for the months I have paid for an upgraded account and not being able to use it!

I am having this same issue. My account is registered under an Admin and I use the account under my name as the licensed one. I am using Calendly to schedule meetings. I am having meetings consistently reduced to 40 minutes even though I am subscribed under a Pro account.
