Changes for all Western Zoom meetings and classes coming this Sunday

To better serve our community and the use of Zoom at Western, as of Sunday, October 18, we will be setting the following defaults to some of the optional settings for Zoom meetings. These defaulted settings can be turned on or off by the host (typically, the creator of a meeting), on a per-session basis, for classes or meetings where such interactions are necessary.

  1. Require a passcode when scheduling new meetings
  2. Embed passcode in invite link for one-click join
  3. Waiting room
  4. Chat
  5. Private Chat
  6. File Transfer
  7. Mute participants upon entry
  8. Screen sharing
