Emissary uses Zoom for engagement calls to better support global conferencing, file sharing, and video capabilities. We appreciate feedback on your Zoom engagement experience so we can keep improving on the Emissary program. This article covers adding a call to your calendar, joining your Emissary Zoom call, as well as information about privacy. We recommend opening the Zoom application 10 minutes ahead of your scheduled call time to check for any updates. If you have questions or need assistance, please reach out to us at email@example.com. You can also reference the Zoom support page for additional technical assistance.
Adding a Call to Your Calendar
After accepting a call time in Emissary Exchange, the details of your upcoming call will appear in the center of the engagement page. Below this, you’ll see a button to add the call to your calendar. Clicking “Add to Calendar” allows you to sync your call information with your iCalendar, Outlook or Google Calendar. Each calendar event includes a direct Zoom link along with other details for your upcoming call. You can add upcoming calls to your calendar at any time by navigating to the engagement page. For clients, you can do this by navigating to the My Activity page to find your open engagements. Advisors can view their current engagements from their home page.

Video and File Sharing, and Inviting Others
During engagement calls, we want to respect the privacy of our community. We ask that courtesy is used and you seek permission before video conferencing, sharing files, or inviting other users outside of the engagement into the meeting.
If your company is not able to use Zoom for any reason, please let us know as we offer an alternative conference solution, TurboBridge.
