As much as we promote asynchronous work by default at Rock, we understand that, sometimes, teams need to meet up synchronously for more creative collaborations like brainstorming.
A healthy mix of both synchronous and asynchronous discussions can benefit the team’s productivity and creativity in the long run.
Rock offers a Zoom integration that you can access in every space through the Meetings mini-app. This way you can meet with colleagues, project stakeholders, or anyone else you are collaborating with on Rock.
Connecting Zoom to your Rock account 📹
To integrate Zoom to your Rock account, enter any space and click on the Start meeting button.
Pressing the button will open a prompt on Zoom to sign in to your account. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll need to give Rock permission and access to successfully integrate with Zoom.
📝 Note: You won’t be able to integrate Zoom if it’s not pre-approved by your account admin. Make sure Zoom integrations are allowed by your admin before proceeding.
When you’ve successfully integrated Zoom, you can start a meeting from any space.
Setting up productive Zoom meetings on Rock 💪
Rock has a built-in option menu that allows you to tweak some of your Zoom settings before starting your meeting.
Ticking the Add meeting note box will create a meeting note on the Rock space where the call was set-up. The note will include the name of the meeting and description so you can easily find it back. You can use the note to jot down ideas, action plans, and other details discussed during the meeting.
You can also configure your meeting room settings from Rock:
- Enable waiting room: Your participants will be in a waiting room until you allow them in the meeting room.
- Start video when host joins the meeting: Only allow video in the meeting once the host joins.
- Start video when participants join the meeting: Toggle if you want participants’ videos to automatically turn on once they join the meeting.
- Mute participants upon entry: Participants will have muted audio when they enter the meeting.
Once the meeting has been successfully created, you will see a panel similar to the one below.
A message will also be sent in the space so all space members can directly join your meeting.
Disconnecting Zoom from your account ✂️
You can disconnect a Zoom integration from your Rock profile by following these steps:
- Go to your My Account by clicking on your profile photo on the left-hand side of the app.
- Click the Authorized apps tab
- Click Disconnect
If you want to reconnect Zoom again, you can always follow the instructions on the top of this guide!
Happy Zoom-ing 😀
