Wix Events: Creating an Online Zoom Event

Create an event and meet up with your guests online. Your event can take place only online, or you can host a hybrid event that takes place both in person and online. 
When you create an online Zoom event, a unique Zoom link is automatically generated which you can share with your guests.

Step 1 | Create the event draft

Before you can connect to your Zoom account to add video conferencing, you must create and save your event draft.

To create an event draft:

  1. Go to Events in your site's dashboard.
  2. Click +Add Event.
  3. Select a type of event (this selection can't be changed after you click Create Event):
    • Ticketed Event: Sell event tickets.
    • RSVP Event: Guests register for the event.
  4. Enter the event name.
  5. Complete the Date and Time section. 
  6. In the Location section, select an option:
    • Online: Select this option for events that only take place online. Enter an Online Location Title (e.g. Online Seminar).
    • Physical Location: Select this option for events that take place at a physical location and also have an online option. Complete the Where is the event taking place field.
  7. Click Create Event.

Step 2 | Add video conferencing

Now that you've saved the event draft, you can connect to your existing Zoom account or create a new one.  

To add video conferencing:

  1. (Optional) Fill in any of the other available fields (e.g. add an event image).
  2. Scroll down and click Set up next to Video Conferencing.
    Note: If you've had a Zoom event before, the Zoom link is created as soon as you click Set up. If this is your first Zoom event, you'll see the link after you connect to Zoom in the next step.
  1. (If this is your first Zoom event) Connect to Zoom:
    1. Select Zoom and click Continue.
    2. Click Connect.
    3. Select how you connect to Zoom:
      • Sign in to your existing Zoom account:
        1. Click Allow.
        2. Go back to the Wix dashboard and click Done.
      • Create a new Zoom account:
        1. Click Sign Up, It's Free.
        2. Enter your email address.
          Note: An email is sent to your address.
        3. In the email you received from Zoom, click Activate Account.
        4. Enter your name, create a password, then click Continue.
        5. (Optional) Invite colleagues or click Skip this step.
        6. Go back to the Wix dashboard and click Done.
  2. Click Save.
Guest receive the link & password in their confirmation email and reminder emails.  

Step 3 | Start your event

When it's time to hold your event, access the event in the dashboard and click See Zoom links.
From the pop-up, click Start Zoom meeting as host
Guests can join the online event by clicking the link found in the confirmation email or reminder email (if you chose to add a link to these emails), or through any other method you used to send them the link.
If a guest has trouble understanding how to connect to the event, you can access the guest link in the same pop-up, copy it, and send it to them.
