Setting up video integrations

For administrators with a Remind plan.

Video integrations give you the ability to manage which video conferencing tools are available to your community on Remind. Video integrations include some of the most popular video conferencing tools, including Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom. When you enable a video integration for your organization, teachers can access their video conferencing accounts without leaving Remind.

To enable Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, or Zoom:

  1. Sign into your Remind account on web.
  2. Click on the Settings for your school or district.
  3. Select App Integrations (from the options listed on the left-hand side).
  4. Click Enable to turn on a video integration for your organization.

If you want to turn off an integration in the future, you can simply click Disable.

Note! When you enable a video integration at the district level, you are authorizing that integration for every school linked to the district.

Connecting your Remind account to integrated apps

In order to begin video chatting and hosting online meetings via Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, or Zoom, you must first connect your Remind account. 

  1. Click on the message composer from your district or school dashboard.
  2. Select your district or school and click Continue.
  3. Select either Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, or Zoom.
  4. Sign into your account and complete all of the on-screen instructions.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 for all integrations you want to use.

Once you have connected your Remind account to an app integration, you can immediately begin using the app. Each video integration allows you to create a new meeting link, which will include a meeting dial-in number, link, and phone number.

Google Meet 

Every time you click on the Google Meet integration, Remind creates a new meeting on your calendar.

Also, every user can create a maximum of 100 new meetings via API within 24 hours. Once they have reached this limit, they will no longer see the option to share a new meeting from the message composer; they will only see the option to share existing meetings.

Your community members will also need to set up video integrations via their Remind account. We recommend sending them a districtwide message on Remind with instructions for configuring their accounts for Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, or Zoom.
