To update your Zoom or settings in Whizzard, go to the Admin Console, click the “Manage Integrations” button next to the relevant service, and follow the prompts to change your login credentials.
If I update my cloud recording settings, what happens to the videos that Whizzard has already imported?
Currently, any updates you make to your cloud recordings settings will only apply to new meeting recordings. Recordings that Whizzard has already imported into your Video Library will not be affected.
How long does it take for cloud recordings to appear within Whizzard?
Please be patient during the initial import process. If you're storing a large volume of content within your cloud accounts, it may take a few hours for all of it to appear within your Whizzard video library.
Import time for new meeting recordings will vary according to their duration and quality settings. In most cases, new meeting recordings will appear in Whizzard within a couple of hours after being processed by Zoom.
Who can view the videos in my Whizzard Organization Account?
Only registered users within your Whizzard Organization account can see your recordings or playlists.
What happens if I delete or change a cloud recording within the Zoom user interface?
Currently, if you delete, rename, or change permissions for a cloud recording directly within the Zoom interface, those changes will not be reflected within Whizzard after that video has been imported.
Can I delete or rename an imported meeting recording in Whizzard?
Currently, you cannot delete or rename a meeting recording in Whizzard. These capabilities are planned for future releases. In the meantime, you can customize video presentations by compiling playlists and editing clip durations.
Why aren’t my meeting recordings appearing within my Whizzard video library?
There are several reasons why specific meeting recordings may not appear within your Whizzard library:
To avoid interruption to the recording import process, be sure to keep Zoom credentials up-to-date in Whizzard’s Admin Console.
