Renaming Yourself on Zoom

  • If you have a Zoom name that doesn't identify you such as iPad4, Zoom User or Fred's iPad etc. then you will need to rename yourself.
  • This enables us to verify that you are a u3a member and we can check if we have any uninvited visitors to our Zoom session. It also helps if you ask a question so we know who you are.
  • If you are joining a session at your own u3a you should just have your full name eg Jane Smith.
  • If you are joining a Zoom meeting with other u3as, you must have your full name and your u3a eg Jane Smith Chepstow.
