Scheduling Meetings with Google Calendar

If you use Google Calendar, you can also schedule Amazon Chime meetings.

To schedule a meeting using Google Calendar

  1. From the Amazon Chime app, choose Meetings, Schedule a meeting.

  2. Select your meeting options, and choose Next.

  3. For Select your calendar app, choose Google Calendar.

  4. Review the Meeting instruction preview field, which is automatically populated.

  5. Choose Schedule with Google.

  6. A new tab opens in your default browser. Make sure that this browser is signed into your Google account with the same email address that you used to create your Amazon Chime account.

  7. A Google invite appears. It includes meeting instructions and an invite to Amazon Chime. The invitation also includes Amazon Chime in the list of invitees. It enables auto-call and automatically starts the meeting for registered attendees at the scheduled start time.

  8. Enter the name, date, time, additional attendees, and any recurrence.

  9. Send the meeting invitation.

  10. (Optional) If you created a moderated meeting with a passcode, choose Copy moderator info and send the moderator information to one or more attendees who will act as meeting moderators. Moderator information is not included in the Amazon Chime meeting invite and must be sent to moderators separately.

To create a moderated meeting as a delegate, ask the meeting host to perform the previous procedure to create a meeting ID and moderator passcode. Then, have the meeting host copy and paste the following information from their Amazon Chime app, and send it to you:

  • For Copy addresses, the attendee email addresses.

  • For Copy attendee invitation, the meeting instructions to include in the meeting invitation.

  • For Copy moderator info, the moderator meeting instructions and passcode, to be sent only to the meeting moderators.

Create a new meeting on the host's calendar and use the information above to populate the Add guests and Add description fields. Send the moderator passcode to the meeting moderators separately. For more information about moderated meetings, see Scheduling a Moderated Meeting.
