There is no direction indicating congregations should create multiple Zoom Meeting IDs or Links for their midweek and weekend meetings. The Governing Body makes no distinction between midweek and weekend meetings, nor about who is invited to each.
This is how 99% of congregations worldwide use Zoom meetings, as there is no reason to confuse publishers with multiple Zoom IDs.
