Denied By Host, but I created the event. Why is someone else host?


If you received an email that Zoom Finmate AI Bot was denied by the host with hostname as someone else but you are hosting the event,

Why is it happening?
The Zoom Desktop App is not signed in or is signed in as someone else. Thus the specific host isn't found, and Zoom randomly assigns the host until the exact host appears.

How To Fix?
Sign into Zoom Desktop App with the same email as your calendar connected to FinMate.

Zoom registration required for FinMate Notetaker


You received an email that Zoom Finmate AI Bot was The bot failed to join because registration is required for this Zoom meeting.

Why is it happening?
Meetings that require registration are not supported since a bot cannot register itself when joining a meeting. To learn more about what Zoom registration is, click here.

How To Fix?

You can do any of the following:
  • To enable a bot to join a registration-required meeting, you must pre-register for the meeting and provide the pre-registered meeting URL when creating the bot. Pre-registered meeting links will contain a tk query parameter.
  • You can host a meeting that does not require zoom registrations. If you are not the host, then you'll have no control over requiring zoom registrations.
  • Use our Web Recorder (easiest)
