Enabling email notifications and adding meeting details
Zoho Bookings sends a default email to your staff and your customers whenever an online meeting booking is made (if you have enabled notifications).

in the top right corner.
2. Select Workspaces, then click the workspace in which you have created services with online meeting facility.
3. Select Notifications and enable Email for staff and/or customers based on your preferences.
4. To add the link to start or join a meeting in your email, click Customize next to the checkbox. In the email template editor, click Insert variables and select Zoho Meeting Info. Place the variable appropriately within the content, then click Save.
