Hi there I am the technology specialist for my mission, and I cant access the link to set up our mission zoom account. I'm not sure if its because the church doesn't recognize my church accounts as technology specialist, that may be the issue. let me know what I can do to solve this or give my account permission. also I'm not sure my mission has a mission email/ account how can I get that or figure out what it is.

Thanks,
Elder McCurdy

That's most likely the problem. I'm able to see Mission Technology Specialist in other missions, but I'm not able to locate your name in CDOL.

Note that you have to have the "calling"/position of "Mission Technology Specialist" in the mission, and not just have it as an assignment.

I'm not sure if missions that only have missionaries (and are not the "parent" of any branches) are set up the same way when it comes to Zoom accounts.
Have you searched the Help Center? Try doing a Google search and adding "site:churchofjesuschrist.org/help" to the search criteria.

So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

In our case we have zoom accounts with lvtxstake+sacmtg@.. lvtxstake+fm1@.. lvtxstake+fm2@.. etc. All messages come to the base lvtxstake@gmail account which I control. I set the passwords for the Zoom accounts as well.

While someone with the lvtxstake+xx@.. can log into that one Zoom account and change the password. I can delete the Zoom account from the Church system, I get the confirmation email at the lvtxstake@ account and re-add it so that the stake maintains control of the passwords.
As a heads up, this approach no longer seems to work. I was able to get one ward moved over to this system, but now it's rejecting all subsequent attempts. See attachment:

You may wish to reconsider the single gmail+ approach after you enjoy this most excellent post.

Whoa. Looks like the + trick is being shut down. I'll likely be heading down the road of creating 9 different email addresses (for 7 wards, 1 stake, 1 branch) and then having all of them have the main STS account always retain a password reset priority.

Appreciate the heads up. I am starting to get reports of the same issue. Going to do the same and create different email addresses and retain the password reset priority.
