ZOOM

WHAT IS ZOOM?

Zoom is an online videoconferencing tool We Are Union is using to host virtual meetings of activists during the COVID-19 health crisis.

HOW DO I JOIN A ZOOM MEETING?

This video will show you how to accept an email invitation to a Zoom meeting and how to access that meeting when it is scheduled to begin.

HOW DO I USE ZOOM?

Your screen should look like this once you join a meeting. You have the option to mute your microphone, turn off and on your video, communicate in a group chat and use other features.

COMMON TECH ISSUES AND HOW TO SOLVE THEM:

I can't hear anybody!

Log out of your Zoom meeting and log back in. As you do log back in a pop up should appear asking about audio output. Click "use computer audio". This should solve this issue.

I can't hear anybody!

Click the arrow key pointing upward between "Mute" and "Stop Video". It will ask you to select which audio input you want to use for Zoom. Select your headphones if you are using headphones. if you aren't using headphones but rather your computer's microphone click that.

I don't have a webcam can I still participate?

Certainly. You will have access to meetings but will not be able to transmit video of your yourself. You will still be able to listen and speak during the meeting, share your screen, and view the webcam video of other participants, however.

I can't connect to my meeting!

When you receive a confirmation email to a meeting you should receive a link to the meeting as well as a nine-digit code this is the unique meeting ID.

You have two ways to join the meeting.

1. Join by clicking the link in the confirmation email. This will open the Zoom app and join the meeting automatically.

2. Join by entering the meeting ID. Go to the Zoom application on your computer (or phone) and click the "Join" button (see attached image below). When prompted, you should enter that nine-digit code. You will now enter the meeting.

What's the meeting ID for the webinar and where do I find it?

 You will find that ID in the confirmation email Zoom will send upon registration for the meeting.
