Follow the instructions below to schedule a Zoom meeting on your desktop computer:

First, make sure that you're signed in to the Zoom desktop. (Instructions).

1) Launch the Zoom application on your desktop and log in using KPU OneLogin (single sign-on).

2) Click on Schedule.

Click on Schedule

3) This will open the Schedule meeting window with various options to choose from:

  • Change the meeting name under Topic or leave as default.
  • Set the date, time and duration of your meeting.
  • Option to select Recurring meeting if the meeting is recurring.
  • For security reasons, a Passcode is generated that's included within the invite link below, so the students just need to click the link and log in with KPU OneLogin to join the meeting.
  • Option to enable the Waiting Room allows the host to admit attendees one-by-one, or hold all attendees in the waiting room and admit them all at once.
  • Option to turn on/off the host or participants' Video when entering the meeting. By default, they're off for privacy.
  • Good idea to leave the Telephone and Computer Audio option checked so the attendees have the option to join the meeting with either Telephone (dial-in) or Computer Audio.
  • Calendar option set to Outlook.
  • Option to set additional options under Advanced Options.

    When finished, click Save.
