Frequently Asked Questions


Using the Zoom app on your mobile device, sign in. Zoom’s app provides you with the option to change your settings. Go to the Meetings tab and tap it. The Show My Connected Time button can be toggled on or off in the General section of your dashboard if you want to view your connected time.3
What is my right as an employee to see what the host is doing on my screen when I am working on a project? Your meeting host or meeting participants will not be able to view your screen without your consent or knowledge as there is no way for them to do so without your permission. The host of the meeting, as well as other participants, will not be able to see your computer screen once you join a Zoom meeting.
The settings can be accessed once you click on your profile picture in the top right corner of the screen. If you click the Share Screen button, then you will be able to find the Share Screen tab. You will need to ensure that the Show Zoom windows during screen sharing option is selected on the Share Screen tab.
An instant meeting or a scheduled meeting has a meeting ID that identifies it as a meeting that has taken place. It is possible to have a meeting ID with ten or eleven digits. Whether the meeting is an instant meeting, a scheduled meeting or a recurring meeting, the 11-digit number is used. Using 10 digits as the meeting ID, you will be able to identify your meeting.
In order to start a meeting as the host, co-host, or alternative host, you need to launch Zoom desktop client and sign in as the host, co-host, or alternative host. To view the full list of participants for a particular event, click the Participants link in the host control panel.
Is there a way to get around the time limit on Zoom?
  1. If you have not yet signed in to Zoom, please open it and do so.
  2. If you click on the calendar icon on the right of the home screen, you will be able to access the Schedule icon on the home screen.
  3. If possible, you should set the start and end time of the meeting to the exact time of when you want it to start and end roughly (to the nearest half hour) when you want it to begin and end.
