How volunteer-hosts can add video call links to virtual or hybrid events

Updated over a week ago

We recommend that Zoom links or any type of join links be added at least 1 day before, but you can also add video call links when you're creating the event. Once you add a join link, we send the link out to your attendees automatically.

Types of compatible links

This list is not exhaustive, but includes some of the most common links used on Mobilize! The only hard requirement we impose is that the link begins with https://

  • Zoom meeting, with or without passcodes integrated into the URL

  • Zoom webinar registration

  • Google Meet

  • YouTube or Facebook Live

  • Skype

  • Slack Video Calls

Add video call link during event creation

Want to make sure that your attendees get ample exposure to the video join link prior to your event? Make you add it the same time you're adding dates and times to your event.

  1. In the Date and time section of a new event you are creating, paste a Zoom or other video meeting link of your choice

  2. If needed, repeat for each shift

  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Host this event

Add video call link when editing an event

If you'd like to control when your video join links go out, then add them at any time before the event. We still suggest at least one day prior, but you can get at close as an hour before for the join link to be included in the last automated Mobilize notification.

The following explainer makes an assumption that you are familiar with how to edit an event, even before approval.

  1. Click into Edit view of your event

  2. Scroll to the Scheduled times section

  3. Select the Add video call information button corresponding to the desired shift

  4. Paste your video join link in the box labeled "Link to join (optional)"

  5. Click Add video call information

  6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 as needed.

  7. Click Submit to save your edits

Wait for an organization Admin to add video call link

Some organizations may have an Admin edit the volunteer-hosted event to add the video call join link. Carefully review event campaign details before and after submitting your event to ensure you have all the necessary organization-specific information.

Why can't I add a video link to my event?
