INTEGRATION WITH ZOOM

 

Integrating your FregaRooms and Zoom is done seamlessly when you start your first One to One call or when you Schedule your first FregaRooms call/meeting. During this process you will be asked to sign into your Zoom Account, if you don’t have a Zoom Account you can sign up for free. See the screen below.
You will only be asked to authorise access to your Zoom Account once.

 

 

 

FregaRooms will request access to your Zoom Account… Click Authorise to continue:

 

 

 

NOTE: Authorisation will remain in place unless you revoke access to your Zoom Account. Any Meetings and Chats you have previously had on your Zoom Account WILL NOT be accessible to FregaRooms. Only calls initiated and scheduled within FregaRooms can be accessed by users to manage their own schedules and calls within their account. None of this information will be shared to any 3rd Party developers or individuals.

 

 

 

PREREQUISITES FOR ATTENDING FREGAROOMS CALLS

 

You need to have your account integrated with Zoom and you need to be following the Hub page to attend the Scheduled Calls for that Hub. If the Hub is a Public Hub as on the example below you can follow it without having to request permission.

 

If the Hub is a Private Hub when you click to follow it you will be prompted to request permission to allow access to that Hub and that hubs owner will receive a notification that you wish to join their Hub page.

 

 

 

Also to make One to One Calls you must request permission to contact the person you are calling if they do not have you in their Contact Book.

 

Once they grant permission for you to communicate with them they will be added to your Contact Book and you will be able to call them as long as they have not turned off the ability for Contacts to initiate a FregaRooms call to them and in this case the Video Icon will not show in the Contact Book.
