With the Zoom for G-Suite add-on, you can seamlessly schedule, join, and manage meetings right from Google Calendar. Please note that this is not the same thing as Zoom Scheduler browser extension, although they both have the same purpose, to integrate Zoom with Google Calendar. Once you have installed Zoom for G-Suite, it should be browser and system independent and is associated with your NCSU G-Suite account!
