Generally, teachers at Bishop O'Dowd are set to require authentication during meetings they host. This helps ensure that only students are joining a meeting, and not anyone else. However, sometimes we want people outside of O'Dowd to join. If you want to invite a guest speaker or have a parent-teacher conference, here's how to do it:
- Email email@example.com to request the ability to meet with a parent (or anyone that does not have an email with Bishop O'Dowd).
- Once you receive a response confirming you can make the change, log into Zoom on your browser.
- In the Meetings tab, hover over the name of the meeting you would like to change and click Edit.
- Next to Security, uncheck the box that says Require authentication to join.
- Click Save.
Now your meeting is open for anyone to join. We highly recommend to keep the waiting room on in this setting to prevent unwanted guests.
