Zoom is not integrated into Quercus - prior to first time use, you will need to activate your UofT Zoom account (if you would like to use it).
Before using Zoom
Get a Zoom account
- Activate your Zoom account on the U of T Zoom Portal
Avoid "Zoom Bombing"! Internet trolls are using Zoom to share inappropriate content by taking over screens during sessions. To prevent this, we are recommending that you limit who can share content to only the host. Hosts can disable this option in their settings or the Admin controls of a call. You can either change this in your pre-meeting Settings or in the in-call admin settings for Share Screen > Advanced Sharing Settings.
