That is generally good advice, except there is no mention of getting approval from the FM Group. They must approve all modifications to Church facilities. Sidestepping this requirement could have negative consequences and undermine future relationships with FM managers. In some cases FM has been known to remove the modifications without notice and equipment involved confiscated.

It is useful to remember that stakes, wards, and branches do not own the buildings they meet in. Those buildings are owned by the FM organization and the units are tenants - they can be temporarily or permanently moved to different facilities if the need arises (I have seen this happen). This is probably one reason the FM group can be picky about permanent installations of unapproved equipment since the ward doesn't own the building they meet in.

We are using Google Meets and are only allowed 50 minutes of AV before the meeting stops. I want to use Zoom but our ward doesn't know the login or password...

Have the ward contact the stake technology specialist. The account isn't granted automatically. It has to be requested.

There used to be a software that allowed you to control the camera and put in comments on the screen of the presentation. You could set preset shots. Does that still exist.

Are you referring to Open Broadcast Studio?
