First Time Set Up – 15 Minutes
Upon your first use, you should take about 15 minutes before the meeting to download, login, and check your video and audio settings, plus get familiar with the options. You can share/hide information to present on your screen or just take the call on the phone.
After you launch the app, you have two options:
- Click on the Zoom invitation link from the host’s email and it should open to the launcher and then, a window of participants.
- Or you can click Join A Meeting and add the meeting ID provided.
