Reclaim's Zoom integration offers two powerful features to help you better manage your calendar and keep your Slack status up-to-date with videoconference meetings:

  • Sync your Slack status to Zoom: with Reclaim's Zoom integration enabled alongside Reclaim's Slack integration, Reclaim will automatically set your Slack status when you join a Zoom meeting as well as clear it when you leave the meeting -- even if there's no event on your calendar associated with the Zoom meeting.

  • Set up Smart 1:1s with Zoom links: the integration also enables you to add Zoom links to your Smart 1:1s, enabling you to create flexible recurring meetings with your team over Zoom without worrying about sending links back and forth.

Requirements for using Reclaim's Zoom integration

In order to use Reclaim's Zoom integration, you must:

  • Have a valid Reclaim account and login credentials, and;

  • Have a valid Zoom account and login credentials.

If you plan to use the Zoom integration for syncing your Slack status to Zoom meetings, you must also have Reclaim's Slack integration added to a valid Slack workspace as well as have Status Sync turned on.

How to install Reclaim's Zoom integration

  • This will redirect you to Zoom's login page (if you're not already authenticated in your Zoom account). Login using your Zoom account credentials.

  • Once you've authenticated, a screen will appear prompting you to install the integration. Review and approve the permissions and click "Install".

  • You're done! You should be redirected to a page confirming that Reclaim's Zoom integration has been successfully installed.

Syncing your Slack status to Zoom meetings

If you've enabled Reclaim's Slack integration for your Slack workspace and have turned Status Sync on, adding Reclaim's Zoom integration will automatically start syncing your Zoom status to your Slack status. Here's how it works:

  • When you join a Zoom meeting, Reclaim will automatically update your Slack status to reflect that you're in a meeting depending on your Status Sync preferences.

  • When you exit a Zoom meeting, Reclaim will automatically clear your Slack status to reflect that you've left the meeting or potentially restore it to whatever status it was before (ex: Lunch).

This behavior applies both to meetings that are on your calendar (e.g., if a meeting runs long or ends early, your Slack status will reflect that) as well as impromptu Zoom meetings that aren't reflected on your schedule.
