ZOOM Quirks and Other Pertinent Info:

* NOTE: You can communicate to anyone via the CHAT function – Please use this INSTEAD OF TALKING
* If you wish to talk, use the “Raise Your Hand” function to alert Meeting Host. Un-muting will done at Meeting Host discretion. Again, Meeting Host is tasked with keeping the meeting on track.
* To chat with Meeting Host you need to use the “All” address. Meeting Host will then respond to the individual one-on-one. It is a quirk of ZOOM that you cannot chat directly with Meeting Host.
* Meeting Host IS NOT an IT resource IF you are having LOG ON ISSUES, back out and try again. We have TRIALED the link and it WORKS!
