You may be logged into a free, basic Zoom account if:

  • you find that you cannot share your screen but you are the host
  • others cannot find you in the system to add you as an Alternative Host

You'll want to ensure that you are logged into a Stony Brook licensed account in the Web, Google Calendar, and in the Zoom Client.  If you are staff and do not teach classes, you also may want to change the global setting to allow all participants to share their screen for each future meeting to save time.  This is not recommended for instructors who teach classes.
