Zoom help.


Recommended Posts

I am not very IT literate but my last 2 attempts to join in a zoom meeting were a failure. I click onto the link set up by the host but I cannot see how I can put in my meeting ID and password (which have already been sent to me.

My name appears on t he screen and I can see the other participants but they cannot see or hear me. Today's screen asked me to check my microphone which I did, for it to automatically come on when the session began but no joy.

Help please in very easy terms I have tried to check out on google but they are talking about setting up a session not joining in one.

Pugwash, this happened to me once and it turned out that the meeting had been set up so that only a certain number of designated people were visible.

It was the Ivy House shareholders' AGM and only the committee were visible. Everybody else could see and hear the committee, but couldn't be seen or heard themselves.

Would it be worth checking with the meeting host whether this is the case? I spent a very long time trying to work out what was wrong before I twigged. Or rather, somebody else did and told me!

If you can see and hear the other participants then I think you have actually joined the zoom meeting.

When I first started using Zoom I had problems with not being able to communicate with the other participants, one of the reasons (I had a few teething problems) was that my audio was muted and my video/camera was muted.

The way to address that is in the bottom left hand corner of the screen, where I had to move the cursor down to that area and make the two icons visible for me to then click on and UNmute.

This seemed to fully enable me for the Zoom meetings.

    • Suggest you get come Correx eg from an old estate agents sign and cut it into 50mm wide strips. Then get some carpet tacks (15mm long)  Push the carpet tacks into and through the Correx at 25mm intervals so that the sharp ends stick upwards. Then attach the strip to the top of your fence where it is lowest. It  doesnt injure them. It just makes it uncomfortable for them and they soon learn.
    • At sue , do you think the people of southwark or even the UK on their own can solve all of the environmental problems in the world on our own ? And putting garden waste into a brown bin is going to solve the environmental  problems of the world ? I do my bit for the environment by doing my recycling and driving a electric van , southwark council are causing more pollution by having LTNs and causing the traffic jams and vehicles to idle, believe me iam all for the environment but I'm afraid what happens to the earth in 200 , 500 or one thousand years from now is not my concern , I need to makesure that I can keep myself and my family alive now the same as many other people who are finding it difficult to pay for food and pay their Bills,  so I'm afraid I will be putting my garden waste into MY green bin which I pay for via my council tax and save my £80 which would help pay for my electric of gas or food ..  Also heard that council may only be collecting green and blue bins once a month,  not confirmed but just hear say at the moment ...
