"We are experiencing longer wait times than normal due to increased demand. You can still view answers to frequently asked questions or contact us but wait times may be longer than expected. Thank you for your patience."
There are some recommended settings that can be updated to prevent disruption to your Zoom meeting,
Generate a Random Meeting ID
When scheduling a meeting ensure the Meeting ID section is marked “Generate Automatically” for each session being hosted to avoid reusing of the same number especially if using your Personal Meeting ID (PMI) which is not recommended.
Please watch this video to learn more about scheduling a meeting.
Set a Meeting Password
Setting a password for your meeting can prevent unanticipated guests from joining. When scheduling a meeting, under Meeting Options, select Require meeting password, then specify a six digit code. Participants will be asked to enter this code in order to join your meeting.
Enable Waiting Room
The Waiting Room feature allows the host to control when participants join your meeting. As the meeting host, you can admit attendees individually, or hold all attendees in the virtual waiting room and admit all when you are ready to begin. Admitting participants from the Waiting Room requires an additional step for the host, but provides increased control to only allow participants to join the meeting when you admit them. This feature can be enabled on a per-meeting basis when scheduling.
Disable Join Before Host
If you are scheduling a meeting where sensitive information will be discussed and you do not want participants to start the meeting without you, it's best to disable join before host functionality. If you disable this functionality, participants will see a pop-up dialog that says, "Please wait for the host to start this meeting." If you are the host, there is a login button to login and start the meeting as the host. This feature can also be enabled or disabled on a per-meeting basis when scheduling.
Limit Sharing to the Host
This restriction can help prevent intrusive sharing and potential meeting disruptions. However, this may not be appropriate when multiple participants need to share and collaborate. To limit sharing privileges while in your meeting:
Remove a Participant
If you are the host or co-host in a session and notice an unwanted guest has joined or a participant is disruptive to your session, you have the option to remove them. To remove a participant:
Lock Your Meeting
The Zoom Host Controls allow the host or co-host to lock the meeting once all anticipated participants have joined the meeting. When a meeting is locked, no one else can join the session, regardless of having a meeting password. To lock your meeting:
Restrict Access to Join a Meeting
By default, anyone with the join link or meeting ID can join a meeting hosted by users on your account, even if they are not signed into Zoom. To prevent unknown participants from joining the session, you have the option to restrict meeting participants to users who are signed into Zoom.
