Zoom Help
by John Carter

What you need to know about Zoom

Hi. My job as Technical Assistant (a new position with PCS) is to provide help to those who need it regarding using Zoom. All board members are to be trained in the use of Zoom.

Due to COVID-19 Stay-At-Home requirements, until further notice PCS will be having all of its functions online using Zoom to connect members and guests.

Everyone must register to join a PCS online event. The registration button is on the Home page of the PCS website and it will be included in the Newsletter when appropriate. All members will get a reminder e-mail with the registration link in it. The registration link can be shared with anyone, even on Facebook or other public media.

Zoom is like Skype on steroids. With a Zoom Pro license you can connect up to 100 people at a time. It starts with a meeting host scheduling the meeting and sending out invitations. Whoever starts a meeting is the meeting host. Everyone else is a guest, called a participant. When guests join a meeting, they may be placed in a Waiting Room to be admitted by a host or co-host.

You do need to read the "Getting Started with Zoom" document before joining a meeting to familiarize yourself with the process of downloading and installing the Zoom Client app and joining a meeting.

A more advanced article (Version 3) about how to work with Zoom is available here.

The Zoom meeting will be open to join 15 minutes before the start time. Please take a seat in the front row. <grin> Having your video open is optional. But then where's the fun in that?
