Latest ZOOM Update Tips


Exciting new features with the latest ZOOM update Part Two. Plus how to merge the phone-in participant with their video. This is especially important for breakout rooms. Also, you would be amazed at how much you can do from your phone! See the ‘Phone-in’ Participant perspective in this video tutorial. Including wrap up thoughts and tips on using the latest features in ZOOM.





Recap Highlights & Tips


  • Sharing in Breakout Rooms: Must check ‘Multiple Participants Share’ in settings


  • Pound, #, Hashtag – all the same symbol 😉


  • Try logging in different ways, such as calling in, so that you understand your participant’s perspectives and can explain the steps they need to take


  • Give clear instructions for breakout groups ahead of time, and ask your participants to take a picture of the ‘steps slide’ or provide them in a handout ahead of time


  • Say what slide or what page # you are on, when talking about handouts and workbooks


  • Spotlight feature. Good for recording, not good if the facilitator wants to see the participants


  • If you can NOT merge phone and video boxes, then move both manually into breakout rooms


  • Have people rename their phone number with their name and ‘phone’ so that you know who to move into breakout rooms


  • Write down people’s phone numbers so you know who can be let back in from the waiting room, if they have internet issues or leave the meeting


  • Second device, or phone should have the ‘sound’ off, so there isn’t an echo


  • If people call in from a company or work phone system, they may not know their own phone number to rename it. (Process of elimination)
