Online Sessions - Zoom Instructions

How to join a Zoom meeting?

 

To join a Zoom meeting, your host (Bump and Beyond) first has to create a meeting and share the invite URL or meeting ID. You do not need a Zoom login to join a meeting, all you need is that meeting URL or ID. We will provide you with both via email leading up the session.

Once the facilitator starts the meeting, participants can join. The facilitator will jump on a few minutes ahead of time for anyone wanting to jump in early just to be sure and will provide plenty of time for others to join. Especially for the first online session.

 

In the event of technical issues please send a text describing your issue to the phone contact provided in your zoom invite email. There are a few different ways you can access Zoom so read through the different options and choose the best one for you.
