Note: This process is also documented as a video, part of a 7-step self-guided tour found here.
Direct your browser to the UCSB Zoom launch page.
Click “Sign-In” on the right of the screen under Quick Links.
This will take you to the UCSB Single Sign-On (SSO) page.
Enter your NetID and password.
Once entered you will be taken to your Zoom Profile page. Note your Sign-in Email Address. You will want to confirm that Zoom and GauchoSpace integration are using the same address.
To do this, open a new tab and visit the Identity and Access Management webpage.
Click on “Edit <your name>’s Profile” and a drop down will appear looking like the image below:
Note the email address under “UCSB Default” and/or “Primary Department Email”. It should match the address in your Zoom Profile.
If it does NOT, enter the correct email address under “Secondary Department Email” and click on the "Update Profile" button at the bottom right of the page.
Now you’ve verified that your addresses match!
Let’s download Zoom:
Visit ucsb.zoom.us again and this time select “Download Zoom” at the right of the page under “Quick Links”.
This will open the Download Center where you want to download “Zoom Client for Meetings” by clicking the blue "Download" button.
Once downloaded, launch the Zoom app.
The Sign-In window will appear and you will choose “Sign In with SSO” at the right.
Once you’ve signed-in with your NetID and password a pop-up window will appear asking if you want to allow zoom.us to open. Click “Open with zoom.us”.
You now should have the Zoom Home Screen.
From this screen you can Start a new meeting (now), Schedule a Meeting (future), or Join someone else’s meeting. Use "Schedule" to schedule recurring meetings for your synchronous classes and/or office hours.
In the upper right hand corner you can verify your account settings.
Hopefully this gets you started!
