Does Event Espresso 4 support integration with Zoom or other online meeting software where attendees can register with EE4 and login credentials are sent with the attendee ticket? With the current COVID restrictions we have turned to online meetings and hope Event Espresso has a solution. Please let me know what options I have.

Thank you,
Rich Patti

Hi Rich,

It is possible if you are using the same credentials for all and no individual users.

What you can do is add the Zoom like and password into event meta and then include those details in the emails/ticket.

Would that work for you? I can provide more details on how to set it up if so.

Hi @mpurse,

How do you have your Zoom event(s) set up?

Using the same link and password for all registrants?

Where do you want to include the info, I’m guessing the Registration Approved email?

I will be using the same link and password for all registrants. I would like to include this information in the registration approve email.

I found this page useful in setting up virtual events.

Ok, so to add the details into your event you just use a custom field.

if you are using ACF you can use that or just use the standard custom fields within the event editor, as long as the value is stored as a string it will work.

So on the event editor, look for ‘Custom Fields’, like this: https://monosnap.com/file/JVbUAv4OMw4N0Jl0nOlO6ZyFXI1ars

If this is the first time you are adding a ‘zoom’ field you’ll need to click the ‘Enter New’ link below the dropdown to add a new field, after that it should just display in the dropdown.

So click Enter new and you’ll have a ‘Name’ and ‘Value’ field.

Name can be whatever you want but in this example, we’ll use zoom-link.

The value is the zoom link itself, I’ll use http://example.com

Click ‘Add Custom Field’: https://monosnap.com/file/XaUDqoBs1pihugp7MTTQjVwiSbXYJP

That custom field is now saved on the event. Do the same for password: https://monosnap.com/file/mRf4aP2EGpRhVJzPfTRYR6t1Z0vg56

Now you have 2 custom fields in your event call zoom-link and zoom-password.

Now in your messages, you need to call those values and we do that using the [EVENT_META_*{meta-key}] shortcode.

This part will different depending on your messages set up but if you used a custom ‘Registration Approved’ message type on the event as shown on the above link you’ll already have a custom message template specifically for virtual events.

Edit that template, either in Event Espresso -> Messages -> Custom Message Templates) or but click the ‘edit’ button in the notifications section on the event editor.

Make sure you are editing the ‘Registrant’ context, see HERE.

Because we added the meta values to an Event, we can pull those values in the EVENT_LIST section.

You can then add something like:

Zoom Link: [EVENT_META_*zoom-link]
Zoom Password: [EVENT_META_*zoom-password]

Into that section wherever you want the link to display, a quick example:

https://monosnap.com/file/HzMeYogzHKEglb4RX0r3M5KfVMFmga

Then save.

You now have the zoom link and password saved within the event and the values for those pulled into a message template.

Is that what you are looking for?
