Assigning schedule privileges on Zoom

Zoom has an option where you can allow other staff members to schedule meetings or classes in Zoom on your behalf.  You can also schedule meetings or classes on behalf of other people once they have assigned you to schedule for them. This can be helpful for a course or unit convenors when there are complex timetables, multiple classes running at once, or when teacher scheduling is not completed at the time the classes are ready to be scheduled. 

This will also allow them the privilege of managing and co-hosting a class or meeting as an alternative host.

Ensure that both users are licensed users by logging in through
