Recruiting: Add Zoom Meetings with Interview Scheduler

Guide for enabling the Zoom Integration in Paycor Recruiting


  • As employers shift towards an increasingly virtual workforce, the need for video conferencing abilities is ever-increasing.
  • Zoom has emerged as the premier video conferencing provider amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, providing an easy to use tool for employers to connect with both their candidates and employees.
  • Paycor Recruiting is making it even easier for clients to engage virtually with their candidates by allowing clients to integrate their Zoom Admin account in the ATS for seamless scheduling.

New Zoom Integration:

Our integration with Zoom allows your team to streamline your scheduling process by seamlessly including a Zoom Meeting when you schedule recruiter screens, phone screens, and interviews with your candidates. The Zoom Meeting details will be incorporated into the invite emails you send to your interviewers and candidates. The process is quick, easy, and effective for your team members and candidates alike.

Installing the Paycor Recruiting App in Zoom

  1. Log into your Zoom Admin Account and navigate to the Zoom App Marketplace.
  2. Search for the Paycor Recruiting app, simply follow this link: Paycor Recruiting
  3. Click the Paycor Recruiting app.
  4. Click Install, then set to Pre-Approve

Additionally, we recommend updating the following Meeting Settings in the Zoom Admin Account to ensure optimal integration with Paycor Recruiting:

  1. Log into your Zoom Admin Account and navigate to My Account > Settings > Meeting
  2. Ensure the Waiting Room setting is OFF
  3. Ensure the Meeting Passcode setting is ON
