ZelloWork Crosslink Overview

Crosslink allows network administrators to securely share selected dynamic channels from their network with other ZelloWork network(s). You can now talk with suppliers, customers, and others by sharing Zello channels through a Crosslink!

Who can use Crosslink?

  • Paid ZelloWork subscribers can create Crosslinks to other paid ZelloWork accounts or to 5 user accounts (demo networks).
  • Coming soon: ZelloWork Servers can create Crosslinks to other ZelloWork Servers or ZelloWork cloud networks.

How does it work?

  1. Choose one or more dynamic channels from your network and share them with one or more ZelloWork networks operated by different organizations.
  2. The shared channels appear in the list of channels for those networks, where their respective admins can add or remove users. 
  3. Using the shared channels users from your network can communicate with users from other networks. Crosslink allows for channel communication only. 
  4. You can add or remove your users in those channels, stop sharing channels or end the link at any time.

Using ZelloWork Crosslink

Creating your company profile

Start by creating a company profile, which is how other companies will know you’re trying to connect with them. Make sure this information is accurate and complete. We recommend uploading your company logo, contact name, business email, and work number.

Connecting to a company, which already uses ZelloWork

If the company you’re inviting already uses ZelloWork, you’ll need to ask for their network name. If you’re trying to connect to a ZelloWork server, you’ll need their IP address.

To send a new invitation, click:

Then select Yes and follow the wizard:

Inviting a new partner to connect using ZelloWork Crosslink

Even if the other company does not have a ZelloWork network, you can still invite them to join your dynamic channel using Crosslink. They’ll receive an invitation to create their own ZelloWork network for free for up to 5 users.  

To send a new invitation, click:

Then select No and follow the wizard:

Sharing channels

View all shared channels and company information by selecting one of the Crosslinks. From this page, you can share more channels, remove shared channels, or close the Crosslink.

Both you and the other network have to add users to the channel, otherwise, the other networks users will not be able to hear any of your users. You’ll see a warning like in the image above if you have not added any users.


The Crosslink you’ve added to a channel will show up as the company name. You can add multiple Crosslinks to a channel so you can communicate across multiple ZelloWork networks

Talking to other networks

The channels your network shares thru Crosslink will look like regular dynamic channels to you. Under channel users, you’ll see the other network listed and the number of users online for that network.

Channels shared with you from another network are marked by their logo under your channels list.

Push-to-talk as you would with any other channel to connect with the other network!
