January 25, 2022

Starting Monday, January 24, 2022, several new default settings will be available in your Zoom at UMass Amherst account. We are making these changes to protect and enhance your Zoom experience. 

Security Improvements

Previously announced changes related to required security settings have been delayed. 
Stay tuned for future updates, and configure recommended security settings.


New Meeting Management Options

  • Prior to joining a meeting, participants can choose to have video on or off and change their video settings during the meeting. 
  • Meeting participants can communicate without interrupting by clicking additional icons (yes, no, slow down, speed up, coffee cup). 
  • Meeting participants and webinar panelists can rename themselves. 
  • Hosts will be notified 7 days before the cloud recording is permanently deleted from trash.
