How to Use Google Calendar to Book Zoom Meetings

This week and next week at my school we have to hold short interviews with students who want to be in our technical programs next year. In normal years this happens in our classrooms. This year we're doing it over Zoom. 

To streamline the process of scheduling Zoom meetings with prospective students I created a Google Calendar appointment page on which they could book a time for an interview. Then in the appointment details I removed the default Google Meet link and replaced it with a link to a Zoom meeting. 

I couple of years ago I published this video about how to create appointment slot calendars in Google Calendar and how people can book one of the calendar slots with you. 


The video above is still accurate. If you want to take the process a step farther and include Google Classroom and Zoom in the process, watch this video that I published last spring.
