    Can I ask how the 'grade' mechanism works with the zoom meetings? I have set up a zoom activity, allocated a grade scale to it, but it appears to just automatically apply the maximum grade to anyone who accesses the link, is this correct, it should it be possible for the teacher to specify different grades to different learners?

    Hi. There is a problem with co-hosting. If the user (Teacher role) is a Zoom pro and creates a zoom session for himself, it works fine. But If the user creates a zoom session with a Co-host (also Zoom pro), the Co-host don't get host privileges. We have Moodle 3.9.6 / Plugin Zoom v3.6. Thanks!

    Thank you for your help.

    The "Only available for Paid account." message is coming directly from the Zoom API, not us. Does an older version work? I don't have a way to replicate the error, so I need your feedback. We can have a real discussion GitHub.

    Hi All,

    I've followed everything through but I get an error - Unable to find your account on Zoom. If you are using Zoom for the first time, you must activate your Zoom account by logging into https://xxxxxxxx.zoom.us/. Once you've activated your Zoom account, reload this page and continue setting up your meeting. Else make sure your email on Zoom matches your email on this system.


    Once I log into the Zoom Account the JWT app says:

    "Your app is activated on the account
    Your app is allowed to invoke any Zoom APIs"

    Where am I going wrong please?

    Cheers

    @Dave Emsley: Make sure that the account you are logged into in Moodle has the same email address as a Zoom user account that is a member of the overall paid Zoom account for which the JWT app was created.

    Two things:

    1- Can you add Save to local / Save to cloud option when host joined?
    2- Can you add saved Zoom video links? This could be either automatically or by hand. I cannot add any Zoom lessons link from zoom.us later.

    Thanks.

    Hi.... I'm testing the latest version of the Zoom plugin (v3.7, 2021041300) on our Moodle 3.10.4 (2020110904) test site. The "Enable scheduling privilege option" is on (this is a new admin setting in 3.7). This is the test I'm conducting where I'm seeing a problem:

    -- User A and User B are instructors in the Moodle course.
    -- In his Zoom settings, User B has assigned scheduling privileges to User A
    -- User A is logged in to Moodle and goes to add a Zoom Meeting instance to the course
    -- User A sees that he can schedule the meeting for both User B and User A ("Yourself").
    -- When User A tries to schedule for himself (UserA), he get's an error ("You cannot schedule for the specified user") -- see link below for screenshot.

    https://ucsf.box.com/s/ja1jc7548d9flj67nlfuf5eqhgw1u5az

    User A is able to create a Zoom meeting instance for User B. And User A is able to schedule a meeting when User B is not an instructor in the course (i.e., the "Schedule meeting for" option is not present). The error is produced when the "Schedule meeting for" option is present, and User A tries tries to create a meeting for himself.

    Please let me know if there might be any settings that would address this problem, or if you have any questions. I can also submit an issue to the GitHub repo is that would help.

    Thanks much... Brian Warling (UCSF)

    @Brian Warling: If you would be willing, please open an issue on the GitHub repo. That is far easier for us to track, triage, discuss, test and provide feedback.
