Hi again.

For security purposes, I have set up the webinars to be accessible only to people who have registered their email with zoom so that I know everyone who registers is a real person. This prevents bots from registering and taking up all the slots, which has happened to an webinar I offered when I first got a zoom account.

Zoom's wording is confusing as it talks about "authorized users". I wish they'd state the issue more clearly. But for most people, all they need to do is go to zoom.us, which is a website, login to an existing account or register their email address to create an account, and then go back and register for my webinars. People can use a personal or throw-away email to do this if they like. But this step is necessary.

Hi

You should not need to have a zoom account to use the NYSFAAA zoom account.

Register. When you receive the link - try it out. If it needs an installation it will tell you that. The installation is easy unless you need an admin PW. In that case, you will need assistance from IT/IS

Hi Danielle

This usually happens if 1) the email address you are using to register for the webinar is not one that you have registered with Zoom with; 2) you were logged into a different zoom account when you tried to register for the webinar or 3) your school has a single sign-in process with zoom and you need to go through that process before you register for this event.

Please go to zoom.us and log into zoom with your email address, and then open the window to register for this webinar.

If you still have trouble after doing that, email me directly at [email protected] and I will try to help you there.

Is anyone else getting an error message when they try to register for the SWT with Robert Weinerman? It tells me that only authorized users can register and asks me to change my email address. I did have email issues earlier but I corrected the email on file. Advice?
