Connect your Zoom account to your Eversports Manager to have automatically generated Zoom links created for your online classes.

1) Activate the Zoom extension

In order to connect your Zoom account to your Manager, you first have to activate the 'Online activity streaming via Zoom' extension. Read here how to activate extensions.

2) Connect your Zoom account

After successfully activating the extension, connect your Zoom account. In order to do this, go to the menu Settings > Online Stream. There, you find the button that redirects you to your Zoom login. Please proceed through the steps until you come back to your Manager.

If the connection is established properly, you'll see a success message in the same panel where you started to connect it.

3) Select appointments to stream online

Now its time to select online streaming for the activity that you want to stream, just go to Activities and choose the specific activity. Via the 3-dot menu you can open the 'edit appointment' window.

At the bottom of the settings you'll find the possibility to mark this appointment as online activity.

You can also activate the online streaming option in the activity settings.
In the tab Dates where you can create and edit appointments for the activity, it is possible to mark appointments for the online streaming.

4) Manually modify the automatically-created Zoom link

How to manually edit a Zoom link in your Eversports Manager:

  • Create a new meeting in your Zoom account & copy the Zoom link

  • Manually modify the link in your Eversports Manager.
    To do this go to the menu Activities and click on 'Edit appointment' for the corresponding class:

  • You can edit the Zoom link that was automatically created previously by clicking on the "pencil".

  • After inserting the new link, click on green tick to save the link.
    This way it will no longer be automatically generated by the Zoom integration.

5) Access the online stream

To access the online stream go to the Sign-in of the activity. Below the activity name on the top you will find the online stream. In some activities you can also find an online stream button directly next to the related appointment in the Sign-in.

NOTE: No worries if you don't find the link immediately - as the streaming links are created automatically 48 hours before the activity starts.

Deactivating the Zoom-Extension

If you decide that you want to deactivate the Zoom extension, you can directly write Eversports Support so that we can deactivate the extension in your Eversports Manager.

You should then also deactivate the integration from your Zoom account. Therefore please go through the following steps:

  • Login to your Zoom account and navigate to the Zoom App Marketplace

  • Click Manager > Installed Apps or search for the Eversports App

  • Click the Eversports app

  • Click uninstall

If you deactivate the Zoom-Extension all streaming links from future activities will be deleted and need to be replaced afterwards.

ATTENTION: Don't deactivate the Eversports app on Zoom without notifying our support to deactivate the extension before.
