- General Comments on Zoom on Polycom.
- In using a Polycom system, unless you have a keyboard connected to your unit, it is very hard to enter alpha numeric characters. Thus, we should restrict both meeting IDs and pass codes to be purely numeric.
- Meetings should be set up so that anyone can share their screen.
- Wait rooms should be avoided at all cost.
- There is no way to remotely mute a microphone in zoom, so setting mute on connect as the default would be smart.
- Unless you have multiple monitors, when a screen is shared, you will loose the participant videos.
