Choosing Zoom Default Settings
For Staff
07 Aug 2020

To allow the use of Zoom for purposes such as regular or research meetings with both internal and external participants, you have the option to change the current default setting in Zoom. There are 3 default settings you can choose from:

Default Setting 1 (current setting):

  • All meetings will require authentication. Meeting participants must be CityU members and are required to login to Zoom with their CityU accounts.

Default Setting 2:

  • You are given the option to schedule classes or meetings with/without an authentication requirement. That means you can invite external participants to join the scheduled meeting. Upon joining, all participants will be required to wait in the “waiting room” until they are admitted. You carry the responsibility for vetting participants.

Default Setting 3:

  • You are given the option to schedule classes or meetings with/without an authentication requirement. That means you can invite external participants to join the scheduled meeting. Upon joining, only guests will be required to wait in the “waiting room” until they are admitted. You carry the responsibility for vetting participants.

To place a request for switching, please submit a Service Request directly or contact the IT Service Desk via IT.ServiceDesk@cityu.edu.hk for more information.
