Issue

How do I install the Zoom for G Suite 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 G Suite. For more information on how to uninstall a Chrome extension, visit Google’s Help Center.

Install the Zoom for G Suite add-on

  1. Download the G Suite Marketplace “Zoom for G Suite” 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 G Suite add-on from the right sidebar
    1. You will receive a pop-up stating “Zoom for G Suite was installed.” Click Got it to minimize
  5. You will be asked to sign in to your U-M Zoom account. Click Sign in
    1. 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.

Note: It may take a few minutes for the Zoom for G Suite icon to populate in the right sidebar of your Google Calendar.

Additional Information

If the Chrome extension is removed for Zoom from a device and the G Suite 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 G Suite 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 G Suite 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
