Zoom audio/video conferencing upgraded to work with Single Sign-On
The K-State Zoom audio/video conferencing service has been upgraded to work with the university's Single Sign-On service, which allows K-Staters to use their eID/password to sign in.
Instructions for how to sign in can be found in the Accessing Zoom article. You can access Zoom by using the Web, the Zoom app download, or a link on your K-State Connect page. Please use Single Sign-On from now on.
Attention: Previous K-State Zoom accounts will be deactivated on Feb. 16, 2015.
Upgraded account details:
Only individual or group email accounts will work with the upgraded Single Sign-On accounts. If you have used a shared account, calendar resource or distribution list to sign up for your previous Zoom account, it will not work with Single Sign-On.
The first time you log into your upgraded Zoom account with Single Sign-On, your personal meeting ID will not match your previous account. There will be a two-month transition period for users to reassign their previous personal meeting ID.
To reassign it, log into your previous account and change your personal meeting ID. Then log into your upgraded account with Single Sign-On and change your personal meeting ID to your desired 10-digit number. See the Accessing Zoom article for instructions on how to change your ID using the Zoom app.
On Feb. 16, 2015, your previous account will be deactivated, and the personal meeting ID linked to that account will be released.
