Note: when you sign in for the first time, your Zoom account is automatically provisioned.
Standard Zoom accounts are provided free to the lab by the IT Division Collaboration Services Group.
By default, all new accounts are standard. All the functionality of Zoom is available with the exception of providing toll free telephone connections to your meeting. (toll numbers for US and International are provided)
If you desire to provide free phone calls for participants in your meetings, you will need to identify a project ID and Activity Code. You will be recharged for minutes your participants use, based on a rate table provided by Zoom. Request toll-free by requesting one from the IT Help Desk (x4357, sending an email to email@example.com, or entering in a ticket at help.lbl.gov)

As part of the 2018 contract with Zoom, we have one 3000 person Webinar license. This license can be allocated to an account and, when the event is completed, the license can be allocated to another user. Contact the IT Help Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org) and request use of this license for up to a two week period (enough time to practice using the license and then to conduct the event).
