Zoom Video Conference Information and Guidelines

For Everyone

When you join a meeting, you may be held in waiting room until the host lets you into the meeting. This is a security measure to block unintended attendees who have got their hands on an invitation.

It is good Zoom etiquette for everyone except the host and the person speaking to mute their microphone. This reduces feedback loops and improves audio quality. And also stops unwanted noises being broadcast to all participants. Only one person should talk at a time. Zoom will only broadcast the audio from one speaker at a time. So everyone talking (or singing) at the same time will result in garble. Time for the host to Mute All

You should be aware that meetings can be recorded but you will receive a notification if it is.

Headsets are nice since they improve the audio quality for everyone. It also improves privacy/confidentiality (minimises eavesdropping) in the room where you are.

As in the real world, punctuality is a courtesy that makes meetings run smoother.

For Meeting Hosts

Booking a Meeting

The free version of Zoom has a time limit of 40 minutes and restricted options. The church has one licence for Zoom which allows for meetings up to 24 hours and more options.

Please email with the following details of the meeting:

Normally I will respond on the next working day after I receive the request. Booking early will give you a higher priority and avoid conflicts with other requests.

I will then schedule the meeting and provide the details for you to pass on to the potential participants.

Sending Out Invitations

When you send out the invitation, it is most convenient to send out the meeting link with the embedded password. However, you should also include the Meeting ID and Password separately as an alternative. Be aware that links posted on social media reduce the security of the meeting (Zoom-bombing) and my recommendation is not to do it. Perhaps put the meeting notice on social media and have them request the link/password from you separately (privately).

Schedule up a Meeting

I normally set it so the video is off for the host and participants. This allows the participants to prepare before joining the meeting. At the beginning of the meeting I will invite participants to turn on their video and mute their microphones.

For enhanced security, Under Advanced Options you may to check Enable waiting room to avoid Zoom-bombing.

Also under Advanced Options, you have the option of specifying an alternative host to the meeting. During the meeting, you may also hand over the host to another person in the meeting.

Hosting a Meeting

At the beginning of the meeting, the Host should:

During the meeting, it it the Host's responsibility to control the meeting. Your prime control is via the Manage Participants that appears on the bottom middle of the computer screen. Press the Alt key (alone) to see this tool bar. You have several options (some are under the ...)

For better security, it is best to only allow the host to share their screen or upload documents.
