Connect Zoom to a Beekast session

Working remotely or from home? Looking to organise a video conference with your team?

Try combining Beekast with Zoom! 😃

Beekast helps you run your meeting by synchronising data for your session on all of your participants’ devices. And the Zoom app offers video conferencing and many other features so that your team can talk and even see each other in real time!


You can now connect your Zoom account to one of your Beekast sessions so you can share the link for your Zoom video conference directly in Beekast.

Participants will find the access link in the home menu for your session, and can then simply click on the link to join the meeting!

Adding a Zoom meeting to your Beekast session

First, go to the settings for your session by clicking the “Settings” button in the blue bar at the right of your session screen. Next, click the “Connected applications” header.

The connection to your Zoom account is only valid for one session. You won’t be automatically connected to Zoom for your other sessions!
