Zoom meetings are becoming a way of life, they are such an easy and practical to keep in touch with work colleagues, clients and suppliers. You can meet via video conference, share your screen to do a demonstration or conduct a learning session or provide a presentation. Even better, you can record the session to refer to it again later. All of this is available in the free version of zoom.
One frustration I often hear is that its time consuming to share zoom meeting recordings with others, particularly if you are conducting a number of meetings and needing to constantly share zoom meeting recordings.

If you are sharing your copy of the file, so please don’t delete it or we the person you are sharing it with will lose access.
