Bcc Functionality for ZOOM invitations
Outlook needs to have Bcc functionality for ZOOM invitations. if I want to send a mass invitation out without losing ZOOM's full functionality I cannot do so without sharing everyone's email addresses in a public way. It's 2020 and this application functions like its in Vista.
Outlook needs Bcc for ZOOM invitations. I want to send a mass invitation without losing ZOOM's full functionality. I cannot do so without sharing everyone's email addresses, leaving myself open to prosecution by breaking GDPR.
Don't you think this is a Zoom product feature?
Surely this is a feature of which you should be asking the Zoom development team to contribute? I don't think the Zoom add-in is anything to do with Microsoft...

Absolutely agree, this should be an option for the Outlook desktop app too!
So that it is helpful for others who may be seeking a possible solution at the moment:
Option 1: via the Outlook desktop app if the Organizer is using the Zoom desktop app
> When scheduling a Zoom Meeting and sending out the invitation via Outlook, those attendees who need to be BCC'd (hidden from the attendee list) can be added as a resource as noted in the following Microsoft Support post: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/add-bcc-recipients-to-a-meeting-request-fcaff39e-7fcd-4a77-81e9-b609c57dadb1?ui=en-us&rs=en-us&ad=us
Option 2: via the OWA (Outlook Web App) if the Organizer has the Zoom for Outlook Add-In from Microsoft AppSource (https://appsource.microsoft.com/en-us/product/office/WA104381712?src=office&tab=Overview)
When scheduling a Zoom Meeting via the OWA Calendar, select the 'Response options' dropdown > Hide attendee list

Zoom is competition to Teams so I don't expect this to happen.
