Go to sign up for an account and follow the steps to download Zoom onto your computer. 

Once you have downloaded the app, click on the 'Home' button in the bottom, left-hand corner and then select 'Schedule.' 

Type in the name of the Meeting e.g. 'Slick Demo for Hair House,' select the date and start time and click 'Schedule.' 

You can sync it to your iCal or close the calendar box which will open. 

To send details of a meeting, click on the 'Meetings' button (second in from the left on the bottom of the Zoom app) and click Copy.
