How to Use Zoom
Setting Up for your session
So, while you won't get lost driving around trying to find my office, you may have some technical difficulties. I want this to be as stress free for you as possible and once you are all set up, it will be easy for you when I send your session link. You'll just click the link and your session will open. After you book your appointment, I will send you a link via email. Usually a couple days before hand. I recommend you get your computer or mobile device set up before that time as well as test your web camera and audio.
Using a Computer
There are detailed instructions on how to join a session here: Zoom Support How to Join a Meeting
Please give Zoom a quick try before we meet. You can do that by using my open meeting room. Your individual session ID will be unique to your day/time but will look very similar. Here's a link to test Zoom out, see if you can get to the "virtual waiting room" screen: https://zoom.us/j/6048567007. Whenever you 'join a meeting' there will be virtual waiting room screen, wait to be admitted for your actual session. The test run will look something like the image on the left and you are in the right spot. Done on a Windows 10 computer.
Using a Mobile Device
You can also use your mobile device, simply go to the app store and download the free app called: Zoom Cloud Meetings - apple click here, android click here. I recommend you test the app out. You can do that by using my open meeting ID: 604 856 7007. Your individual session ID will be unique to your day/time so it's completely secure. Once the app is all set up you should be able to just use the link. Here's a link, see if you can get to the "virtual waiting room" screen: https://zoom.us/j/6048567007. Keep in mind whenever you 'join a meeting' there will be virtual waiting room screen. Please wait to be admitted for your actual session. The test run will look something like this after you've loaded the app, etc., click the link or use the Meeting ID #, and you are in the right spot. This was on a Android phone.
