This is a really simple guide with a few DOs and DON'Ts for you to observe.

If you receive an invitation to join a ZOOM meeting, simply follow the instructions. If you have already registered with ZOOM you will be using a special ZOOM app to join in. But if you haven't previously registered, don't worry. Clicking on the invitation will take you straight to the meeting anyway.

Registering a ZOOM ID
Registering your own Zoom ID is simplicity itself. But The Third Age Trust have provided regular online training sessions, which give a fully detailed view of what happens as you go through the process of registering a ZOOM account for yourself.
However it isn't necessary for you to create a ZOOM account - following an invitation is all that is necessary. ZOOM will then just use your browser
