Transfer ownership of a Zoom meeting or webinar to another person


Issue

I'm leaving UMD or I'm unable to host a prior planned Zoom Meeting or Webinar.

Environment

Zoom

Resolution

When you leave UMD you should transfer ownership of your Zoom meetings and/or webinars to another person in the office or on your team so they can continue to use these meetings and webinars without any URL changes.

Existing owner

  1. Go to Zoom and sign in with your UMD Directory ID and passphrase.
  2. Select Settings in left navigation bar.
  3. Scroll to the very bottom and locate Schedule Privilege.
  4. Select Add next to Assign scheduling privilege to.
  5. Enter the person's @UMD.edu email that you want to pass ownership to and allow their name to appear.
  6. Select their name and click Assign.

The person you assigned must now go into Zoom and change the events' ownership to themself.

New owner

  1. Go to Zoom and sign in with your UMD Directory ID and passphrase.
  2. Select Meeting or Webinar in the sidebar depending on the type of event you wish to claim ownership of.
  3. Locate where it says Myself and select it. A dropdown menu will display with the names of individuals who have granted you scheduling privileges.
  4. Select the existing owner's name. Their upcoming meetings will display.
  5. Locate the Meeting or Webinar and select its Edit button.
  6. Change the existing owner's name to Myself in the Schedule For dropdown menu.
  7. Scroll to the bottom and select Save.

Repeat as needed for each Meeting or Webinar.
