UW-Madison Zoom - Getting Started with Service Accounts
Office 365 Service Accounts can be enabled/activated for Zoom. Learn more about Office 365 service accounts.
Important: UW-Madison Zoom tenant only has limited number of licenses which are primarily used for faculty/staff/students - Zoom leadership team reviews/vets all these requests.
Why should I request a service account for Zoom instead of using my own NetID@wisc.edu Zoom account?
There are times when your department will be hosting an event (meeting/webinar) that should be owned/hosted by a shared service account - the host of these events is unknown and rotates through the department. This will give you the ability to host this event via this service account and grant the ability for others access and manage these events via the service account.
Possible other solutions:
- Host the event through your own UW-Madison Zoom account and take advantage of alternate-host feature.
- If you need to grant others the ability to modify/manage events on your behalf, grant them Scheduling Privilege to your UW-Madison Zoom account.
