Events at the same time in Zoom

#1

Post by mdantas »

Hello guys.

we received the zoom account. All accounts of wards is configured. Work fine!

But, I have a question: How to I can create 5 events in the same time (hour) to different members participate?

The goal is for each unit to have classes at the same time. Example: Relief Society and Elders Quorum, Primary, Young Women, and priesthood all at the same time.

We created five simultaneous rooms/events, I choose the option where people can enter without having a host and so far so good. But in the tests we did, after visiting users connected in the first and second room, from the third onwards, it says that the host needs to be there (ie the ward account). As a result, we were unable to work with 5 rooms/events at the same time.

Does anyone know how to solve this through some configuration of the Zoom account or it is not possible and we have to think of something different like Google Meet?

The good thing about Zoom are the breakout-rooms.

You're limited to two meetings at a time. You'll have to use breakout rooms to run 5 classes at the same time.

Google Meet also has breakout rooms, but Zoom is the preferred system because of the Church's license with them.

I would recommend reconsidering having 5 separate meetings at the same time. This requires every household to have up to 5 devices, 5 separate quiet areas of the home, and a good internet connection to be able to handle all of the simultaneous meetings, and could disproportionately affect disadvantaged members.

Yes, Google Meet has this feature, but those accounts created by the Church for the use of Google Meet do not have the breaktout rooms feature.

Thanks.
