Enter your meeting settings

  • Topic: the title of your meeting
  • When: date and time of the meeting
  • Duration: total amount of time the meeting will run for (you can enter a meeting early)
  • Recurring meeting: meetings that will be used more than once in the course (e.g., weekly discussion meetings)
  • Video Host/Participant: select whether you'd like your/your participants' video to be automatically turned on or off
    • recommend setting this to off so as not to surprise participants entering the meeting

Meeting Options

  • Mute participants upon entry'
  • Do not check Use Personal Meeting ID
    • Using a Personal Meeting ID will cause problems when Zoom cloud recording are imported into Panopto
  • If you'd like recordings of the meeting, select "Record the meeting automatically" and save the recording in the cloud
  • Click Save. You will now see the meeting appear under 'Upcoming Meetings'
  • Alternative Hosts: enter the email address of your teaching partner or TA if you'd like them to be able to start the meeting without you
    • Note: originally this setting auto-populated all course faculty as alternate hosts. This was turned off in Summer 2020 to provide more flexibility around who could be assigned as an alternate host.
