Learning Objectives: This page will cover how to access your Zoom profile and settings. It also will cover a general overview of default settings and other settings you could use.
Know where to edit settings (Your Zoom settings can be altered in different ways in the following three different places)
Online Zoom profile (https://utexas.zoom.us/profile) - You'll manage your meeting settings here. You should bookmark this link since it is the primary place to update meeting settings. NOTE: If you want to set up an alternative host for a class (i.e. as your teaching back-up so they can start the meeting in your absence) you must do this in the Canvas Zoom settings
Set up your teaching backup or TA as an alternate host - In the case, you have scheduled a meeting, class, or office hours but are unable to attend (and therefore can't start the meeting), you can have someone else set up as an "alternative host". To do this you can click on the "Zoom" link in Canvas left menu bar and then you can add an alternative host either in your personal meeting room settings or in the settings of a meeting you schedule in Canvas. NOTE: Emails need to be the UTEID email which is the UTEID of the alternative host + "@" + "eid.utexas.edu". e.g. "email@example.com".
Automatically record your classes - When you schedule your meeting in Canvas it should default the record automatically but if not make sure it's a default. For your personal meetings, you may choose to not record these but for classes, we must record classes for students in different international time zones and students experiencing health issues or emergencies.
