    Make sure the Moodle user you are using has the same email address as a Zoom user that has the ability to create a meeting.

    Hi Rex, According to Moodle coding guidelines, column names in the database should not include underscore. “Column names should be always lowercase, simple and short, following the same rules as for variable names. (”.

    Dasu, yes, true, but the code checkers aren't complaining and it is harder to change the database and it isn't worth potential data issues to fix a style problem that wouldn't affect anything.

    Juan, I believe it is a limitation of zoom API that there can only be one main host per meeting. Once in the meeting the main host can grant anyone else host privileges.

    but is that the api allows 1 single main host for all moodle courses?.

    No, you can have a different host for every meeting created in Moodle using this tool.

    Is there a way to prevent students from being able to record the meetings when using Zoom?

    Only host are allowed to record meetings in Zoom. Students are not hosts unless someone gives them access.

    Hi Rex, thanks very much for this plugin, which will be hugely useful for us. Is there a way to generate calendar invitations for learners that include their own unique URLs? Are there any plans to include invites in the future? Thanks, Kat

    Hi Rex, This plugin is extremely helpful! One question I have here is: with this plugin, can we have simultaneously several meetings, just like multiple virtual classrooms for different courses at the same time?

    @Sans You should, just create multiple zoom meeting activities.

    I got the API from zoom and I have an active account. why am I keeping getting "You are using Zoom for the first time, so you must enable your Zoom account by logging in to with your login credentials. Once you've activated your Zoom account, reload this page and continue setting up your meeting." ?

    While this plugin works free, I have noted at the zoom website that they have paid packages with additional features. If I should pay for one of those packages, would I be able to take advantage of those features in moodle using this plugin?
