If you use Zoom Meeting for your virtual meetings or conferences, you can easily integrate it to Pigeonhole Live to have a seamless audience engagement experience. In this integration the Audience Web App will appear next to the video, allowing your attendees to participate in nested polls, leave comments, submit and vote on questions – all while having an uninterrupted view of the video. This integration is only applicable for Q&A and Regular sessions on Pigeonhole Live.

How to add Zoom Meeting to Pigeonhole Live?

On Zoom:

1. Once you have set up your meeting on Zoom, you will be provided with a link (that looks like this: https://zoom.us/j/xxxxxxxxx) to invite your attendees to join the meeting. Copy this link.

On Pigeonhole Live:

1. On your Pigeonhole event, go to More Settings > Integrations.  

2. Scroll to find Zoom and select Integrate.

3. Select the session you want to integrate Zoom to.  Then, paste the Zoom Meeting link you've obtained when setting up earlier.

If you're running a hybrid meeting, you may leave the setting "Enable for attendees joining on mobile" disabled (default setting). When disabled, attendees who are joining virtually via desktop will be able to see the Zoom meeting video and the Audience Web App, while those joining from their mobile phones will only see the Audience Web App. 

If you're running a fully virtual meeting and want attendees to be able to join the meeting via mobile phones, check the setting "Enable for attendees joining on mobile" to enable it. The meeting video will be available alongside the Audience Web App for attendees joining on mobile phones or desktop.

Then, select Add Video

4. Send the Audience Web App link to your attendees to join the meeting via Pigeonhole Live. 

5. Run your meeting on Zoom as per usual. Your audience will be able to view the meeting uninterrupted while submitting and voting on questions, adding comments, and answering nested polls.

Note: If you've enabled SSO for attendees or required your meeting attendees to sign in on Pigeonhole Live, the attendees' identities will be reflected on Zoom. If attendees are anonymous on Pigeonhole Live, they will remain anonymous on Zoom unless they choose to rename the assigned pseudonym in Zoom.
