Once they have been added, your teaching team members should now have the ability to edit meetings that have been added to your course.


Please note: allowing others to schedule meetings on your behalf will provide them with access to all of your meetings. Any meeting you schedule can be edited and joined by anyone who has been given this permission in your Zoom account. If there will be any meetings you do not wish these users to have access to it is recommended that they not be given scheduling privileges. If an existing meeting needs to be edited, a member of your teaching team can simply create a new meeting.
