Add an Existing Zoom Meeting to the Zoom-Canvas Integration for a Canvas Course

Environment

Zoom-Canvas integration for U-M Zoom users ("Zoom") or Zoom for Health users ("Zoom Health")

Issue

  • I created a Zoom Meeting outside of the Zoom-Canvas integration, so it is not showing in my Canvas Course's Zoom Course Meetings. How can I add it so that my students can see it in the Zoom-Canvas integration?
  • How do I move a Zoom meeting I created in the Zoom-Canvas integration for one course to another course?

Resolution

Add an Existing Zoom Meeting to the Zoom-Canvas Integration for a Canvas Course

You can only add an existing Zoom Meeting if you are the host of the meeting.

  1. Navigate to the Zoom-Canvas integration in your Canvas course
     
  2. Click All My Zoom Meetings/Recordings in the upper right
    Note: the meetings and recordings seen in All My Zoom Meetings/Recordings are meetings that you or anyone you have scheduling privilege for are the host of. These meetings and recordings are only visible to YOU. No other users can see your meetings and recordings that are not associated with the course. If other users click this option, they will see their own meetings and recordings.
     
  3. Copy or write down the Meeting ID from the Meeting ID column for the Zoom Meeting you want to add to your course
     
  4. Navigate back to the Course Meetings by clicking Course Meetings/Recordings in the upper left, just under the Zoom logo
     
  5. Click the 3 dots in the upper right corner (next to the Schedule a New Meeting button)
     
  6. Click Import Meeting in the drop-down
     
  7. Paste or type in the Meeting ID that you copied in step 3
     
  8. Confirm you now see the meeting in Upcoming Meetings or Previous Meetings in the course

Moving a Zoom Course Meeting to a Different Course

Zoom meetings can only be associated with ONE course. If you want to fully remove it from one course and add it to a different course, follow these instructions.

NOTE: These instructions can also help to restore a deleted recurring session to Canvas. When prompted to delete meetings, you must delete ALL occurrences in Canvas and Zoom, and restore with the instructions below.
  1. Navigate in any web browser to https://zoom.umich.edu/meeting/ and log in, if prompted
     
  2. Copy or write down the Meeting ID from the Meeting ID column for the Zoom Meeting you want to move to a different course
     
  3. Click on the link for the meeting, scroll to the bottom of the page and click Delete this Meeting (don't worry--it won't be permanently deleted and we will recover it immediately!)
    • If the meeting is in the past, access it by clicking Previous Meetings
       
  4. Click Delete again in the confirmation pop-up
     
  5. Navigate to https://umich.zoom.us/meeting/trashcan/list (you can click the link to the left OR click Recently Deleted in the upper right corner of your meeting list)
     
  6. Click Recover next to the Zoom Meeting
     
  7. Follow the Add an Existing Zoom Meeting to the Zoom-Canvas Integration for a Canvas Course instructions above to add the meeting to the new course

Additional Information

Possible error messages at the Import Meeting step and how to address them

"This meeting could not be found in your Zoom account and can not be imported into this course (2250)."
  • Make sure the meeting ID entered exactly matches the meeting ID showing in your Zoom Meetings tab.
  • Make sure the meeting is not in Recently Deleted. If it IS in Recently Deleted, click Recover to un-delete it, then try again.
  • Make sure the meeting exists in your account, either under Upcoming Meetings or Previous Meetings.
  • If the meeting was previously associated with this course, you will not be able to import it again and may see this error.
"You are not the host of this meeting. Only Zoom Admin's can import meetings that they are not the host of (2249)."

Somebody else is the host of this meeting, not you. Even if you have scheduling privilege for the host, you are not able to import meetings that you are not the host of. The two possible solutions are:

  • Have the meeting host import the meeting
  • If you have scheduling privilege for the meeting host, follow this work-around:
    1. Navigate to https://umich.zoom.us/meeting
    2. Find the meeting that you want to import to the course and click the Topic link for that meeting
    3. Click Edit this Meeting
    4. Change Schedule For to Myself
    5. Click Save at the bottom of the page
    6. Follow the Add an Existing Zoom Meeting to the Zoom-Canvas Integration for a Canvas Course instructions above to add the meeting to the course
    7. After successfully importing the course, navigate back to https://umich.zoom.us/meeting
    8. Find the meeting that you imported to the course and click the Topic link for that meeting
    9. Click Edit this Meeting
    10. Change Schedule For to the original other host
    11. Click Save at the bottom of the page
