Issue

I have a meeting in my Zoom account that I did not create with a topic of "This is a calendar meeting". What is this and how did it get there?

Resolution

  • When you start to create a Zoom meeting using the Zoom for G Suite add-on, either by clicking Add Conferencing>Zoom on the calendar event itself OR by clicking Add Meeting in the Zoom for G Suite Add-on on the right side of your calendar, Zoom creates a placeholder meeting with the topic "This is a calendar meeting" with a date of 01/01/2099, to store the settings that you are entering until you finish creating it by saving the calendar event.
  • When you finish creating the meeting by saving the Google Calendar event, the placeholder meeting is updated so that the meeting topic matches the name of the calendar event, overwriting the "This is a calendar meeting" topic, and it becomes the "real" meeting.
  • If you never save the calendar event, the placeholder meeting never gets updated and therefore remains in your account with the topic "This is a calendar meeting" and a start time of the exact time you clicked Add Conferencing or Add Meeting.
