This support solution will walk you through how to add an alternative host to your Zoom personal meeting room. This will allow them to host the meeting on your behalf and have all the necessary access that you as the normal host would.

Step 1: Launch the Zoom application on your computer and get to the main window, if you have not yet requested a Zoom account and installed the application on your computer please visit the IS Zoom page for further guidance on how to set up your Zoom account

Step 2: Click on the drop-down arrow on your "New Meeting", hover over the meeting ID number and then select the "PMI Settings"

Step 3: In the "Personal Meeting ID Settings" menu click on the down arrow next to "Advanced Options" to reveal more choices

Step 4: At the bottom of the advanced options there is an "Alternative Hosts" menu that you may enter the email address of the individual you would like to give access to host you Zoom personal meeting room meetings

Note: Only Wake Forest users with an email address who have a licensed Zoom account may be set as an Alternative Host and by default, students do not have licensed Zoom account and must request one from the IS department 

Step 5: Click Save to add this individual as an Alternative Host, the will receive a notification email to their Wake Forest account that they have been given this access.

Step 6: You will want to inform them that the URL they receive in the notification email should be saved for future use as that is how they will be able to access, launch, and control meetings on your behalf 

You now should have successfully given alternate host access to your Zoom personal meeting room. If you have further questions or run into issues with this process you can reach out to the law school help desk at or call 336-758-4300.
