Zoom best practices for your online meetings & appointments

Have an upcoming Zoom meeting or appointment, but not quite sure how it will work? Check out the Zoom support page for training webinars, info on testing your audio and video, and much more!

Some helpful tips for Zoom meetings or appointments:

  1. Make sure your video and audio are working correctly, give yourself some extra time before your call to check out these features.
  2. Familiarize yourself with the Mute/Unmute feature and the Show/Hide Video options to make sure the other members on the Zoom meeting can see and/or hear you. Additional resources on Audio and Video can be found here.
  3. Utilize the chat feature within Zoom to send messages to members if any problems or questions arise.
