Initially, the client gets an email that asks to wait for the Zoom call approval.
At the same time, the doctor gets an email with the links that confirm or cancel the Zoom call.
Once the doctor confirms the call, the client gets one more email with the link to the Zoom call.
The doctor receives the email with the Zoom call link as well.
Everything is done and works correctly; now you know how to integrate Zoom calls with JetAppointment to get email notifications about upcoming appointments.
