Issue

How do I install the Zoom for GSuite App? 

Resolution

Important: If you currently use the Zoom Scheduler Google Chrome extension, we recommend that you uninstall the extension from your web browser before installing the Zoom for GSuite. For more information on how to uninstall a Chrome extension, visit Google’s Help Center.

To install the Zoom for GSuite add-on:

  1. Download the G Suite Marketplace “Zoom for GSuite” add-on: https://gsuite.google.com/marketplace/app/zoom_for_gsuite/364750910244
  2. Click Install
  3. Zoom requires access to your U-M Google account: click Continue and then Allow.
  4. After installation, navigate to your Google Calendar and open the Zoom for GSuite add-on from the right sidebar. You will receive a pop-up stating “Zoom for GSuite was installed.” Click Got it to minimize.
  5. You will be asked to sign in to your U-M Zoom account. Click Sign in. This will open a new window.

If you are currently logged into your U-M Zoom account:

  1. Google Calendar will ask for permission to access your U-M Zoom account. Click Authorize

If you are not currently logged into your U-M Zoom account:

  1. On the Zoom sign-in page, click Sign in with SSO
  2. Next, in the text box, enter our “company domain”: umich (you don't need to put anything else, just umich)
  3. Click Continue

You should now be able to use the add-on. You may notice the add-on has been added to your Google Calendar and Google Mail right sidebars.

Additional Information

Note: If the Chrome extension is removed for Zoom from a device and the GSuite add-on is installed instead -- meetings previously set up will still work, even though the Chrome add-on was used to create them initially, and now it has been uninstalled.

  • Zoom meetings should remain in place, regardless of how they were scheduled, and there should not be any issues related to this matter
  • Once the meetings are scheduled and in a Zoom account, they are ok as long as they are still showing up in the Scheduled Meetings area of the Zoom Account
  • The Chrome Extension and GSuite App are each tools to schedule a meeting
  • Zoom tracks scheduled meetings independently of Google Calendar
  • If someone wasn’t using the Chrome extension or Gsuite plugin, they could still schedule a Zoom meeting directly in Zoom, then copy the meeting invite when setting up the Google Calendar event. Zoom’s documentation: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362413-Scheduling-meetings
