There are a lot of ways to customize zoom meetings to match your needs, below we will list the settings we feel deserve special attention.
In Meeting Basics:
End-to-end encryption: Require that all meetings are encrypted using AES
Chat: Allow meeting participants to send a message visible to all participants
Private chat: Allow meeting participants to send a private 1:1 message to another participant.
Auto saving chats: Automatically save all in-meeting chats so that hosts do not need to manually save the text of the chat after the meeting starts.
File transfer: Hosts and participants can send files through the in-meeting chat.
Display end-of-meeting experience feedback survey: Display a thumbs up/down survey at the end of each meeting. If participants respond with thumbs down, they can provide additional information about what went wrong.
Co-host: Allow the host to add co-hosts. Co-hosts have the same in-meeting controls as the host.
Polling: Add ‘Polls’ to the meeting controls. This allows the host to survey the attendees.
Annotation: Allow participants to use annotation tools to add information to shared screens
Whiteboard: Allow participants to share a whiteboard that includes annotation tools
Remote control: During screen sharing, the person who is sharing can allow others to control the shared content
Nonverbal feedback: Participants in a meeting can provide nonverbal feedback and express opinions by clicking on icons in the Participants panel.
Allow removed participants to rejoin: Allows previously removed meeting participants and webinar panelists to rejoin
In Meeting (Advanced)
Breakout room: Allow host to split meeting participants into separate, smaller rooms
Remote support: Allow meeting host to provide 1:1 remote support to another participant
Closed captioning: Allow host to type closed captions or assign a participant/third party device to add closed captions
Virtual background: Allow users to replace their background with any selected image. Choose or upload an image in the Zoom Desktop application settings.
Screen sharing: Allow host and participants to share their screen or content during meetings
Attention tracking: Lets the host see an indicator in the participant panel if a meeting/webinar attendee does not have Zoom in focus during screen sharing.
Waiting room: Attendees cannot join a meeting until a host admits them individually from the waiting room. If Waiting room is enabled, the option for attendees to join the meeting before the host arrives is automatically disabled.
Show a “Join from your browser” link: Allow participants to bypass the Zoom application download process, and join a meeting directly from their browser. This is a workaround for participants who are unable to download, install, or run applications. Note that the meeting experience from the browser is limited
Allow live streaming the meetings: Allow hosts to live stream their meetings to Workplace by Facebook or Custom Live Streaming Service
