Hello! Arseniy from Product team is here!What annoys you the most when using Pipedrive and Zoom Meetings to schedule and hold meetings with your customers?
You have to insert the links each time.

@Boris Tsibelman What do you mean by inserting link? Where? Can you describe the process you try to follow?
Inserting the zoom link
Do you mean adding zoom link when creating activity in Pipedrive?
I agree with Boris, everytime copy+paste the link in real pain.To overcome this I'm using TextExpander on mac where I saved this common meeting share link and with hot keys, I paste it where ever I need.
Its the new update for free users where you can't create a room without meeting room passwords.Everytime I have to share the passwords with the clients/prospects/team
What I dislike most about Zoom is the fact that the visiting client must necessarily download and install a widget to his/her PC in order to share their screen. Most of what we do is demos (I share my screen), but very often we are providing tech support (the client shares her screen). I have wasted SO much time teaching people how to install Zoom software on their PCs!
Now we use Vectera. I am a big fan (but not a paid affiliate, I just really like the product). The visitor need not download anything, even to present. So easy... even MY customers can do it. Just send a link, and they are in our waiting room. I admit them when I am ready. Camera on or off, with or without audio. Very response (fast).
They also offer a Chrome extension (not Firefox) that allows for recording of meetings, and it works very well.
They support CNAME customization, so the URL presented to my customers appears to be our own (though we are in fact using their servers).
And, it is free in April and May. Just sign up. https://www.vectera.com/pricing/
I would love to schedule a Zoom call from Pipedrive, then have the recording of the call be uploaded and attach to the person or deal (similar to how the PipeDrive Caller functionality works.)

@Chris Rozon Thanks for reply! Nice to hear that we are on the right track)Do you have a chace to have 30 minutes zoom call so you can share your pains and current workflow on this topic?
Sure.... email me chris at tradelanes dot co
It would be great if there was a direct API with Zoom like Justcall or Kixie where the recording of the call is automatically added to Pipedrive. That would be a gamechanger.
Integrated a client with Acuity and Zoom. When then new appt is booked via Acuity, the zoom link is automatically placed in Pipedrive. Now my wish is that the recording link can also be put inside of PD automatically.
I have set up Scheduler, and it works great. Thanks for building a carefully designed tool. :-)
The integration I am looking for is to generate Zoom meetings for each new appointments booked through the Scheduler. The user stories look somewhat like this:
As a PipeDrive user:
As an end user receiving a scheduler link:

Zoom's UX is horrific - almost beyond words.
And I know various designers and entrepreneurs who agree and make fun of how bad it is.
I've switched to Google Meet, which is far smoother to use.
I'd love a Meet integration!
