Announcements, Alerts, Tips and Pointers

Google is moving to Manifest Version 3 as the official platform for all Chrome browser extensions and will be ending support for the previous standard, Manifest Version 2.  This will impact numerous Chrome-based applications, including Zoom’s Scheduler Extension for Chrome, which you may be using to schedule Zoom meetings via Google Calendar. 

On November 26, Zoom will begin the process of upgrading to Manifest V3 to ensure continued function for users.  Once this occurs, you will be prompted to log in to the Zoom Scheduler Extension the next time you try to schedule a Zoom Meeting via Google Calendar. After that, it shouldn’t be necessary to repeat the log-in process unless a future Chrome update or Zoom update requires it.

As a reminder, the Zoom Scheduler Extension can be accessed via the small Zoom icon to the right of the address bar at the top of your browser window.  You’ll want to be sure to use the “Sign In with SSO” option so you can enter your VCU credentials.

Once logged in, you’ll see the usual choices to Start or Schedule a Meeting.¬† Alternatively, you can click on the “Make It A Zoom Meeting” button when creating a calendar entry. If you don’t see that option, you need to log in (or install the Extension, if you never have).

As always, if there are questions or concerns about this or other Zoom issues, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at zoom@vcu.edu
