This information is available from the Zoom knowledge base, which also addresses iOS, Android, and Linux users.

  • Sign in to the Zoom web portal.
  • Click Settings.
  • Near the bottom of the page, Under Other, click the + next to Assign scheduling privilege to.
  • Enter one or more email addresses in the window, separated with a comma.
