How to Setup Zoom

You only have to follow these instructions once per computer. After you've installed the Zoom software (as shown below), you can run the Zoom application from your Windows "Start" menu or Mac OS X "Applications" folder.

The screen shots may vary depending on the web browser being used and whether or not you are logged into your Santa Clara University GMail account.

1. Go to www.zoom.us.

2. Click on the "Host a Meeting" button at the top.

 

3. Click on "Login with Google".

 

4. You may be prompted to allow Zoom access to your GMail account. You will need to allow access in order to sign in correctly.

 

Zoom uses your Santa Clara University GMail account. If you are logged into multiple GMail accounts when logging into Zoom, you will be prompted on which account to use to sign in.

 

5. On the Google login page, type in your full email address (for example, "bronco@scu.edu") and leave the password field blank. Click on "Sign in".

 

6. You should be re-directed to the "Google Apps at SCU" login page. Enter in your network username and password and click "Login".

 

7. Click on the "Host a Meeting" link again on the Zoom website.

8. On the next page, click on the "Host a Meeting" link again (center of the page) to download the Zoom software. Once the software is downloaded, run the software. NOTE that the download process differs depending on the web browser you're using. These screen shots show the download with Firefox. The Zoom download page will show the correct instructions for the web browser you're using.

 

9. If the Sophos Endpoint Protection client shows a warning, click on "Allow this File" and "OK" to run the software.

10. The Zoom software will load and the main panel appears. NOTE you may receive a popup window for the Windows firewall asking if you want to allow the Zoom application access to your network connection. You will need to click "allow access" in order for Zoom to work correctly.

 

If you are using Google Chat in "invisible" mode, you will be visible when signed into Zoom.

 

11. The software is now installed on your computer and you can launch it in the future by going to your Windows "Start" menu or Mac OS X "Applications" folder. You can now host or join a meeting.
