How to Mute Participants on Entry in Zoom Meeting?
Zoom provides us with various tools that help you make the most out of your collaborative work while working remotely. However, starting off on the right foot is often a challenging task in most types of video conference calls. Zoom can help you tackle this issue as well by muting the participants when the meeting is about to start so that the speaker can talk when all the participants are well settled and ready.
For this, you first have to log in to your Zoom account. You can either use your web browser for login or the desktop application. This feature is not available in the android mobile application.
Once logged in, click on “Schedule” to schedule for the Zoom meeting with the chosen participants.
Upon clicking the Schedule tab, the pop up will open which will ask you to fill out all the information to be sent to the participants about the meeting.
While you’re filling out the important details of the meeting, such as name, timing, Zoom Ids etc, click on the “advanced settings” at the bottom. From there, check the 3rd box by clicking on it, which says, ‘Mute participants upon entry”.
Then, click on “schedule”. The invitation will be sent to all the participants and when the meeting starts, all the participants will be muted and they have to manually unmute themselves.
There you have it, it is that simple and easy to create a Zoom Meeting without any distractions on the first go.
