Steps to Set up a Zoom Meeting
Setting up a Zoom meeting is a simple process. Zoom has a basic plan that you can use for free, and if you would like more features such as more than 100 participants at a time or social media streaming.
Step 1: Download and Install Zoom
First, you need to download and install the app for your device. You will need to sign up with a username/ email address and password.
Step 2: Run Zoom and Click on ‘New Meeting’
Once you start Zoom and have signed in, you will have a few options to choose from. Click on ‘New Meeting’ to set up and host a meeting.
Step 3: Add Participants
You will be redirected to a virtual video conference room. At the bottom of the screen, you will find an ‘Invite’ button. Click on it to start inviting others to the call. You can invite people directly from your contact list or send participants an email inviting them to the meeting.
You are also able to schedule meetings in advance. This allows you as a host to send the meeting details, meeting IDs and invite others to the meeting before the meeting starts. This works well for classes and businesses that have to schedule a few meetings a day.
