Zoom Sessions hosts can create a direct join link for speakers. The direct join link allows speakers to quickly join a session on the Zoom desktop client, even when they are not signed in, with any credentials.
Hosts can create direct join links for speakers one week before an event starts. The direct join link is intended to provide a significant amount of lead time for hosts and speakers to rehearse ahead of an event.
Note: The 1-week timeframe is based on the event start time, as it’s specifically 168 hours beforehand.
This feature also allows event hosts to help speakers bypass issues they may experience while joining an event. This deals with situations in which a speaker finds out that they cannot join an event when their assigned session is about to start. They could be prevented from the event for various reasons, such as using a different account on the Zoom desktop client, forgetting their login information, or their ticket being registered by the wrong account.
The link will be sent to your email along with a verification code. You can use the link and the verification code to join the target session on your Zoom desktop client.
Note: The Direct join link for Speakers cannot be created or sent until one week before the event.
Note: For attendee access to the latest Zoom Events and Webinar features, we highly encourage all users to update to the latest version of the Zoom desktop client/mobile application.
