How to Get Started Using Zoom

 

Step 1: Choose the right plan for your team

Zoom offers four different zoom meeting plan for your business (not including a Zoom Room subscription): Zoom Free, Zoom Pro, Zoom Business, and Zoom Enterprise. 

Zoom Pro is the best option for the EITA. This plan offers an organization using Zoom with a small team with at least one member working remotely full-time or part-time so you can collaborate effectively, no matter where the meeting is hosted. This plan allows hosts to create personal meeting IDs for recurring Zoom meetings, allows meeting recording in the cloud or on users' devices, and caps group meeting durations at 24 hours.

- Download Zoom

Once you've selected the Zoom plan you'd like to start using, you can sign up and download Zoom onto your computer to start using it. Users can sign up using their work email if they're signing up for an individual free account, or if your system administrator is signing up for a Pro account, you'll be invited to sign up for Zoom as one of your company's hosts.

- Sync Zoom to your calendar

Next, you'll want to sync Zoom to your calendar so you can schedule Zoom meetings that appear on your calendar, or so you can easily add a Zoom Meeting link to events on your calendar so remote participants can join. To do this, when you're signed into Zoom, navigate to "Settings," then "Meetings," then "Synced Calendars." Then, toggle on "Sync Zoom Meetings from Calendars," and tap to select the calendars you want to sync with Zoom. By doing this, you can sync calendars with Zoom in both directions, so your calendar client will offer an option to add a Zoom link, and your calendar will show Zoom Meetings you schedule in the Zoom app. 

Step 2: Getting Started on Windows and Mac

- Sign in and Join
