STEP-BY-STEP ZOOM MEETING SUPPORT 

You will only need to do this once, the first time you enter a Zoom meeting. After Zoom is installed, you can simply go to htaa.org, click on the daily minyan link, enter password and you will be in our zoom meetings!

1. JOINING MEETING VIA COMPUTER

When entering a Zoom meeting for the first time from a computer

you will need to download a small application file.

This process is easy to complete on all commonly used browsers. The examples below are shown using Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.


 

To download and install the Zoom Application

1.  Go to https://zoom.us/download and from the Download Center, click on the Download button under “Zoom Client For Meetings”.

2. This application will automatically download when you start your first Zoom Meeting.

·         Once the download is complete, proceed with installing the Zoom application onto your computer.

 

Mozilla Firefox

Click ‘Save File’  and follow the instruction in the orange box.

 

Google Chrome

Google Chrome should automatically download the file and point to it as shown above. Clicking on the Zoom_launcher.exe file will install Zoom. There will be a short pause before a blue progress bar appears indicating the installation.

If an ‘Application Launcher’ or ‘External Protocol Request’ box appears simply tick the ‘Remember my choice’ option box and then click ‘OK’

Just before entering the meeting you will be prompted to enter a display name. This name is simply to identify you in the meeting and is not connected to your  username.

 

Join Audio via Computer

You will then be prompted how you wish to join your audio. If you wish to join audio via the telephone, follow the instructions further down, otherwise simply select Join Computer by Audio (TIP: by ticking the “Automatically join audio by computer…” option box first, will mean you won’t get prompted again in the future)

2. JOINING VIA TELEPHONE

If you are unable to join from Zoom on a computer or mobile device, then you can join on the telephone instead.

If you would like to attend a Zoom meeting via telephone within the Maryland area:

Dial in by phone
301-715-8592 

Then, enter the Meeting ID and PIN (462912) when prompted.

Please note calls will be charged at standard national rates.

There are also many “local” dial-in numbers from many international locations. You can find more details on these here.


 

Join via Computer & Audio via Telephone

It is possible to use a combination of computer for video and phone for audio.

If you use this option, then enter by computer first and select the Join By Phone tab when the audio pop-up window appears (see example below). This will display the NZ dial in number for you (or you can change it to display one of the many other countries which have a “local” dial in number by clicking on the flag icon), as well as the Meeting ID to enter and your Participant ID.

Dial in as noted above, however after entering the Meeting ID, you will be prompted to enter your Participant ID. Simply enter this number followed by # and your video and audio will then be synchronized.

3. ON THE DAY OF THE MEETING

A few minutes before the meeting starts:
1. Go to  htaa.org  website
2. You will see at the top of the page:
DAILY MINYAN ONLINE (in blue)
3. Click on the words “daily minyan online”
4. It will open zoom.us
5. It will ask Open zoom? Select '
Open Zoom' button
6.  Enter password (
need password?)

7. select Join Meeting button
8.  select
blue button 'Join with Video'
9.  select 'Join with Computer Audio'

 

VOILA! You are in zoom meeting.

To leave the meeting:  
Select leave meeting on bottom right of screen.

Raising Your Hand

As the non-speaker if you wish to ask a question or make a point during a meeting it is good protocol to use the ‘Raise Hand’ facility.

If the tool bar is not showing at the bottom of the Zoom window, place your cursor over the Zoom window so it appears and select the ‘Participants’ icon.

A window listing other participants will appear, there is also a ‘Raise Hand’ icon, click the icon to make it known to the Host that you would like to raise your hand

If you wish to lower your hand, click the ‘Lower hand’ icon that will have replaced the ‘Raise hand’ icon.

Using Chat

You can use the ‘Chat’ facility to send text chat to all participants or privately to specific participants.

Click on the ‘Chat’ icon in the tool bar, again hover your mouse over the Zoom window if you can’t see the tool bar.

A chat window will then open. Select ‘Everyone’ or the name of the person you wish to send a chat message to.

It is possible that during the conference participants will be ask to turn off their cameras and move to audio only, particularly if there are problems with the available bandwidth.

To do this simply click on the camera icon at the bottom of the Zoom window.
