How do I set up Zoom for multiple private appointments?

If you are planning to hold multiple appointments with separate individuals, you can set up Zoom so each person joins a private meeting. This can be helpful for tutoring, job interviews, or individual consultations. The Zoom Waiting Room places each attendee in a private virtual space - they can't see or hear each other or the host until they are admitted to the meeting.

Note: These instructions require you to use Zoom through your web browser to set up the meeting. The Zoom app does not have the settings you will need.

  1. Login to
  2. Click on Meetings in the left menu.
  3. Create a new meeting. Use a unique title that you will recognize in your meeting list.
  4. Check the box next to Recurring Meeting. In the Recurrence drop down menu, select No Fixed Time.
  5. In the Meeting Options section, uncheck Enable join before host and check Enable waiting room.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Copy the Join URL or click Copy the invitation
  8. Send this information to the meeting attendee(s) in an email message or calendar proposal. You can reuse this URL as often as you need.
  9. When you start the meeting, you will be required to admit each participant from the Waiting Room.
