Intellum Release Notes | 2024

Outline

May 21

Various minor improvements to ensure Intellum continues to provide you with the best possible experience.


May 14

Clearer Zoom Registration Error Message (Intellum Platform - Update)

When adding a Zoom Event’s host to that Platform Event as the Event facilitator, Zoom sometimes returns an error. This is due to Zoom’s API rate limit on how many times a Zoom user can be added to a meeting in a 24-hour period. The previous error message in the Intellum Platform was generic and only indicated that “an unexpected error” had occurred. This update clarifies what the error is and how to resolve it.

  • New Error Message: “Oops! User has hit Zoom’s three-registration daily limit for meeting id . Please wait 24 hours and try again.”
