New to Zoom? Check out this simple guide to get you started.
Zoom is a video conferencing system that has become very popular with more and more people working from home or unable to move due to the Covid restrictions.
Setting up your Zoom account
If you are on a desktop click on the link to access the Zoom website:
Step 1: Click on “Sign up, it’s free” to access the free version.
Step 2: You can either:
Sign in with your work address (recommended if you are using Zoom for work meetings); or log in with SSO (Single sign on), your Google account or Facebook.
In this example, I have signed up with my email address and once this is done, Zoom will send an email confirmation that will enable us to start using Zoom:
Step 3: Click on the link you have received in your inbox, to activate your account.
The link will open up in your browser where you will be asked to fill in your details.
You will then receive a confirmation of your password change via email.
Zoom will ask you if you want to invite your colleagues to use Zoom. You can do so now or skip this step.
