When Hosting Meetings

  • Lock your meeting. You can lock a Zoom meeting once it has started and all your expected participants have joined.
  • Manage participants in meetings by muting participants, putting participants on hold, and more.
  • Remove disruptive participants. On the Zoom control panel, click on “Participants”, then select “More”, and “Remove” the participant.
  • Control screen sharing for participants.  The Zoom default allows only the host to share screens.  Please only share the screen you select and when needed. 
  • Additional in-meeting security options allow the host or co-host to enable or disable options during a meeting.
