You can then edit the settings to add the topic, description, set a time, setup reoccurring meetings and more. You will also be able to go back anytime and edit the settings by clicking on Edit this Meeting.
Note: the password option for meetings only works if students join the meeting from outside of Moodle. To do this, create a meeting with a numeric password, hide the tool on your Moodle course page, supply the students with the meeting ID, and provide students a link to Zoom’s join page. Joining through this page will require them to enter a password.
Require registration cannot be used when using your personal meeting ID.
To start the meeting, you can click the start button on the Upcoming Meetings page or click on the meeting itself and click Start this Meeting at the bottom of the page. An Invite Attendees link is also provided in case you need to invite or email potential attendees.
