Zoom Meeting Tips

All of our 2020-2021 Programs are being offered via Zoom Meeting.  Below are some tips for connecting to and  participating in OFJ  Zoom Meetings.

Joining a Zoom meeting by invitation link

48-hours before an event for which you have registered, you will receive an email from membership@ofj.org titled Your Tickets from Oregon Friends of Jung. Be sure to check your Spam folder if you don’t see it.

In the email you’ll see a link to click to join the meeting. It looks like this:




Once you click the link:

You may be asked to enter your name and email address to authenticate yourself

You may find yourself in the Waiting Room. If so, you’ll be admitted to the meeting shortly — you don’t need to do anything!


If you need Zoom support before or during the event, please email zoom@ofj.org. We will be monitoring this email box. We will not be able to respond to emails sent to other OFJ email addresses or to phone calls made to the OFJ phone number.


Meeting Controls

Once admitted to the meeting, you’ll see a control panel at the bottom of  your screen:

Mute / Unmute: Click to mute and unmute your microphone. For Friday Talks, you will be muted throughout the lecture unless asked by the host to unmute yourself in order to ask a question of, or otherwise interact with, the presenter. If you are asked to speak, you will see a popup window asking you to unmute yourself. For Saturday Workshops, attendees will be able to mute and unmute themselves.

Audio Controls (click the ^ arrow next to Mute / Unmute) allow you to change the microphone and speaker that Zoom is currently using on your computer, leave computer audio, and access the full audio settings.

Start Video / Stop Video: Click to turn your camera on or off. OFJ events are recorded, and you can use this control to turn off your video camera.

Video Controls (click the ^ arrow next to Start Video / Stop Video): Change cameras if you have multiple cameras, select a virtual background (if enabled), or access your full video settings.

Participants: Click to display a list of people currently in the meeting.

Rename: Hover over your name, click More, and choose Rename to change your screen name displayed to other attendees.

Chat: Displays the chat window to chat with the Meeting Host and other attendees. Depending on what the Meeting Host has enabled,  you may be able to chat publicly or privately, with everyone or just a particular attendee. Click the blue button to see the options available to you:

If you need to contact the Meeting Host, use the chat window and send a private message to them.

Generally speaking, for Friday Talks chat between all attendees will be on for a half hour before the event, during the break between the lecture and the Q&A, and for up to half an hour after the event. During the talk Chat will be disabled except to contact the Meeting Host. During the break you will have a chance to use the Chat window to ask questions of the presenter. For Saturday Workshops, chat will be more generally available throughout the workshop.

Share Screen: Disabled.

Record: Disabled.

Reactions: Allows you to display, for ten seconds, an icon next to your name expressing your reaction to what is happening in the event. Click to choose the icon you wish to display.

Leave: Leave the meeting. You can rejoin by clicking the link in the email you received.
