These Zoom tutorials can help employees working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic have more productive video conferences.
With millions of people telecommuting from home due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, meetings that were previously held in person have now been moved online–and lots of workers are now using Zoom, in particular. Whether you are a beginner or a more advanced user of Zoom, these how-to tutorials will help you optimize your virtual meetings.
Working from home doesn’t mean you can’t meet with coworkers. Zoom is one of the ways you can stay in touch while apart. If you’re unsure of how to launch a Zoom meeting, follow these steps, and you’ll be chatting face-to-face in no time.
Not everyone has a home office, so folks attending a video meeting might be in a bedroom, kitchen, or other space that all attendees can see when the video is enabled. Letting coworkers into your private space can be uncomfortable, which is why Zoom offers virtual backgrounds that let users easily hide what’s behind them.
Important meetings need good records, and anyone who has taken notes knows that some details can be missed. Without a doubt, the best way to preserve a record of a meeting is to have a video recording of the entire thing.
Whether you want to share a document, a presentation, a video, or an image, Zoom has the capabilities to do it, but don’t get stuck making the process more complicated than it has to be–follow the steps in this tutorial.
In an in-person meeting, you can share a document by simply passing out photocopies. Online meetings, like those performed through Zoom, can make it a bit tricker to share documents and files. Luckily, there’s an easy way to share documents with Zoom meeting participants, whether they’re in your organization or outside of it–it’s even easier than sharing your screen.
Users new to Zoom’s desktop app may find it a bit odd when their face appears while speaking–it’s a bit jarring to say the least when you pop up in your own face! If you want to hide your own video, adjust it so you don’t take over the screen, or bring it back once it’s hidden, this tutorial can help.
