Schedule a Meeting in U-M Zoom Rooms

Install Zoom for G-Suite Add-On

With the Zoom for GSuite add-on, you can use Zoom to easily schedule, join, manage, and customize meetings from Google Mail and Google Calendar.

​Important: Third-party apps may display advertisements, require additional terms of service agreements, have a separate privacy policy, or retain your information. For those reasons, add-ons/apps within the G Suite Marketplace are currently disabled for the University of Michigan domain, with a few exceptions such as this one.

Install the Zoom for GSuite Add-on

​Important: If you currently use the Zoom Scheduler Google Chrome extension, we recommend that you uninstall the extension from your web browser and use the Zoom for GSuite add-on. The add-on provides the same user experience across all web browsers and the Google Calendar mobile application. For more information on how to uninstall a Chrome extension, visit Google’s Help Center.

To install the Zoom for GSuite add-on:

  1. Go to the G Suite Marketplace and find the “Zoom for GSuite” add-on:
  2. Click Install.
  3. Zoom will ask for permission to access your U-M Google account. Click Continue and then Allow.
  4. After installation, navigate to your Google Calendar and open the Zoom for GSuite add-on from the right sidebar. You will receive a pop-up stating “Zoom for GSuite was installed”. Click Got it to minimize.
  5. Once you have opened the add-on, you will be asked to sign in to your U-M Zoom account. Click Sign in. This will open a new window.

If you are currently logged into your U-M Zoom account:

  1. Google Calendar will ask for permission to access your U-M Zoom account. Click Authorize

If you are not currently logged into your U-M Zoom account:

  1. On the Zoom sign-in page, click Sign in with SSO.

You should now be able to use the add-on. You may notice the add-on has been added to your Google Calendar and Google Mail right sidebars.

Note: It may take a few minutes for the Zoom for GSuite icon to populate in the right sidebar of your Google Calendar.
