With the Australian government still advising workers to continue working from home where possible, it's likely that your video meetings will be continuing for some time. By now, you've set up your home "office," whether that's an actual workspace or your couch and are comfortable with Zoom. But there are a few tips and tricks that can make your virtual meetings even easier and more productive. Read on for nine of our favourites.
Uploading a nice background or video will help you hide background clutter and other visual distractions, especially for those working in less-than-ideal spaces.
It's a good idea to remain on mute during large meetings in case of any unexpected noise, such as barking dogs or children in the background. You can quickly unmute yourself by holding the spacebar on your keyboard as you speak.
On a Zoom meeting, anyone can share their screen without having to pass on the controls. You can share your entire desktop or any application, making it easy to collaborate.
Need to do some brainstorming or illustrate a complex setup visually? Zoom supports real-time collaboration through the whiteboard feature. Save your whiteboards and share them with your participants after the meeting.
Making design or document edits is simpler when attendees can jointly annotate and make edits. Make sure you leverage the co-annotation capabilities to simplify collaboration, or help guide your participants as to what they should be focusing on whilst screen sharing.
The in-meeting chat is a great way to share links or resources that are discussed in the meeting without interrupting the ongoing conversation. You can share to the entire meeting or privately to one specific person.
Not enough sleep last night? No problem, this feature will help to reduce under-eye baggage and mild skin blemishes, giving you a more polished look - once enabled, we bet you won’t turn this feature off again!
Were some participants not available to join your meeting? No worries. Simply record the meeting to the cloud and share it with everyone after.
You can also enable audio transcription to convert the conversation of the meeting into a text file; anyone watching the recording can search for a keyword to jump straight to the section they have missed.
We encourage everyone to protect their meetings and to ensure privacy with Zoom's security features:
