IMPORTANT ZOOM UPDATE WHICH WILL AFFECT HOW YOUR MEETING IS RUN: Starting July 19th, Zoom will require that all meetings have a Passcode or a Waiting Room enabled.
We have designed these security measures to give you control over your meeting security options while keeping the join experience as frictionless as possible.
- For meetings that do not have either a Passcode or Waiting Room enabled by July 19th, Zoom will enable a Waiting Room for you
- You can customize the Waiting Room experience with an approved list of domains that can bypass the Waiting Room and directly join the meeting
- You can find meetings that are scheduled without a Passcode by pulling the following report
- For meeting join information, Zoom are renaming “Passwords” to “Passcodes” to better align with its role of allowing people in a meeting
