- How do I use Zoom while using Remote Desktop?
- If you are using Remote Desktop to access your office computer you will need to access Zoom outside of the remote desktop application. The camera and microphone being used for Zoom should be those that are connected to the computer that you are sitting in front of. All you need to do is minimize the remote desktop application and open Zoom on the computer that you are currently working from. If you need to access a zoom meeting form a computer that does not have a microphone or speaker, you can also dial-in to a zoom meeting from a phone -- just following the dial-in instructions from the meeting invite or follow the "join audio" prompts from within the Zoom meeting.
- How do I customize my Personal Meeting ID?
- You can customize your personal meeting ID so that anyone can “call” you via Zoom. We recommend that you make your personal meeting ID the same as your office phone number. It makes it easy to remember, and others can look it up in the directory. You can also put the link to your personal meeting ID in the signature of your emails.

- What is the proper Zoom etiquette for meetings?
- Mute your microphone until it is your turn to speak. This cuts down on background noises (i.e. typing, coughing, sniffling, dogs, children, etc.).
- Do not sit in front of a bright window or light if it can be avoided. When the light comes from behind you, it makes you appear as a dark silhouette.
- Frame the camera correctly. If the camera is at an extremely low or high angle you do not look your best or most professional, and it can be distracting.
- Look into the camera. Looking into the camera rather than at the participants on the screen will have the effect of looking someone in the eye.
Remote work training sessions will be held on March 30th, April 1st, and April 3rd at 9AM, 11AM, and 1PM. Please join the LTC staff to learn the basics of scheduling and joining meetings, in-meeting controls, and proper Zoom etiquette.
