Absolutely. Using your Zoom account, you will be able to dial out to the conferencing codecs around the system. If you are joining a conference from a conference room that is not equipped for Zoom, VCS recommends you log into your Zoom meeting from a personal device.
VCS will still assist users to find rooms that fit the needs of their meetings, however, a list of room schedulers and scheduling websites for all campuses is available on the VCS website for self-service options.
If users click “join my meeting” directly from a Google Calendar invite without being logged into the Zoom application, they will join their Zoom meeting as a guest and will not have any host controls.
To prevent this, hosts will need to log into the Zoom application through alaska.zoom.us or through the Zoom application on their computer prior to joining the Zoom meeting.
This is particularly helpful for those who work with an assistant. This option allows anyone who has access to manage your calendar to schedule Zoom calls for you.
1. To set up the scheduling assistant privilege:
2. Log into Zoom at alaska.zoom.us
Go to Meeting Settings> Other. You'll see a plus sign next to Assign Scheduling Privilege. Add your scheduling assistants by typing their email addresses, and finish by clicking Assign.
After you add your scheduling assistants, they must log out of Zoom and log back in for the feature to take effect. From this point on, assistants can create meetings for others using the Schedule tool.
There are two options for Zoom recordings. One is to record the meeting locally on your computer. The other is to record your meetings in the cloud. These are then stored in the University of Alaska Zoom account on Zoom’s Cloud servers. Recordings are held for 1 year, then are automatically deleted. The University of Alaska also has integrated Zoom with our instance of Kaltura, and users can link their Zoom and Kaltura accounts to back up all video recordings made to the cloud.
