How to Automatically Transfer your Account (Sign In and Sign Out)

1. Sign out of your email sign on Zoom account


Zoom - Sign Out of Zoom Image


2. Sign in via SSO

zoom app signin 1


zoom app signin 2


zoom app signin 3


If you are logged in to other UNSW SSO enabled services, you should be automatically logged in. If not, you will be asked to sign in with your zID@ad.unsw.edu.au and zPass.

3.  Once signed in, check that your recordings and meetings are transferred.  If you experience any issues log a ticket with the IT Service Centre.


If you are managing a Zoom account using a shared mailbox OR have multiple email accounts (UNSW email aliases), these will not automatically transfer to your personal SSO enabled Zoom account. 

Signing in via SSO means that your Zoom account will be linked only to you and cannot be shared. If it is critical for you to keep this functionality, please raise a ticket to the AV Team to discuss your options before November 8.

Alternatively, you can check if Zoom Scheduling Privilege will apply to your business need.

You must utilise one of the following settings when hosting a UNSW Zoom meeting: meeting passcode, waiting room or “only authenticated users can join”.


Zoom - 1 of 3 security settings


If you do not utilise one of these security methods when setting up your UNSW Zoom meeting, your meeting will default to have the waiting room enabled. See the Zoom security best practice guide for more information on how to best secure your meetings.

Zoom Security Best Practice Guide

This UNSW Zoom Security Best Practice Guide has been developed to keep your UNSW Zoom meetings safe and secure.  If you have any further questions please see the Zoom frequently asked questions page in the first instance, or contact UNSW Multimedia and AV team.
See UNSW Cyber Security tips.

Remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that you are complying with UNSW rules and guidelines when using the UNSW Zoom service

Always sign into the UNSW Zoom service using the Single Sign On (SSO) method and using your UNSW zID and zPass

1. Launch the Zoom application

2. Click Sign in

zoom app signin 1

3. Click SSO

UNSW IT will soon phase out the email sign in method and will be removing email only sign in accounts as part of ongoing security improvements for the UNSW Zoom service.  

For this reason, it is important to always use the single sign on (SSO) method to access the UNSW Zoom service. If you are already signed into the application, and are unsure what sign in method you used, we suggest signing out and signing back in again using the SSO method.

If you do not sign in via SSO, your UNSW Zoom account meetings, recordings and other account data will be lost.
If you need assistance to sign in via SSO, or need any additional information, please contact the UNSW Multimedia and AV team.

UNSW Zoom accounts default so that only the meeting host can record the Zoom meeting.  However, if required, the host can also assign an attendee the ability to record the meeting locally

How to assign the ability to record a meeting locally to an attendee:

1. In the participants menu, navigate to the participant who will be granted recording privlidges and click More next to their name.

Zoom assign recording privlidge

We recommend that you limit the use of Zoom meeting recording where possible, and only ever assign known authorised end users the ability to record your meeting.

It is your responsibility to ensure that meeting recording is carried out in accordance with university privacy and data handling guidelines.  You should read the UNSW Privacy and Security Guide before recording any meetings.  

It is also your responsibility to ensure that your use of UNSW supplied software is in line with UNSW acceptable use of UNSW ICT Resources policy.

Zoom has also published a guide for securing your meetings with helpful tips to make your meeting more secure, such as requiring a passcode, using the waiting room or using the “only authenticated users can join” function, and then locking your meeting once all attendees are present.

See UNSW Cyber Security tips

Always ensure that you only share your meeting recording with known meeting participants.

Always check that recipients/attendees are known and are authorised to view the meeting before distributing your recording.


Never publicly share your meeting invite details via social media. This will help to avoid rogue attendees joining you meeting and accessing meeting data.

How to view a list of meeting participants:

1. Click Participants in the host controls to display the participants list.

Zoom recording share

2. (Optional) Click the drop-down menu located at the top left corner and click Pop Out to separate the participants list from the meeting window

Zoom share participants


We recommend utilising the waiting room and the “only authenticated users can join” security settings.  You should only ever admit known attendees to your meeting.

Hosts must always utilise at least one of the following security methods; passcode protection, the waiting room function, or the “only authenticated users can connect” option for meetings.  If none of the above security settings are selected, UNSW Zoom meetings will default to have the waiting room function enabled.  

Hosts should always passcode protect Zoom meetings in which sensitive data will be discussed or shared.  Meetings that involve sensitive information, or in which sensitive data is shared, should not be recorded.

Never utilise personally identifying information in the title of your Zoom meetingClick here for more information about the UNSW Data Classification Standard.

Unauthenticated users should be held in a waiting room so the organiser can check their identity upon admitting them to the call.

This is especially important where an attendee is dialling from a phone number and no email id/name is displayed to identify the user.  The meeting host should always monitor the participants list and ensure that no unknown participants join.

How to enable the waiting room, passcode or "only authenticated users can join" option:

1. Choose "Schedule" within your desktop zoom client

Zoom app schedule meeting screen

2. Under the security options select at least one of the three security options.

Zoom security setting

Important note: to effectively secure a meeting using the "Passcode" option, the host must use an automatically generated meeting ID and supply only this and the passcode as the means to join.

Zoom meeting ID

You should know and understand your obligations regarding privacy and data security before utilising any video conferencing platforms.  The Working from Home Privacy and Data Security Guide is a useful reference as a starting point.

Consider utilising Microsoft Teams for enhanced security, especially meetings that involve sensitive information, or in which sensitive data will be shared.

Cloud based Zoom recordings are encrypted.  However, if you choose to record your Zoom meeting to your local device then the recording is not automatically encrypted.  

To encrypt future locally saved recordings, select end-to-end encryption within the meeting settings when recording sensitive meetings.

Please also note that a minimum Zoom client version of 5.5.0 is required by all participants to support features in end-to-end encryption.

Please be aware that Zoom end-to-end encryption is still in development.   Therefore, selecting end-to-end encryption in Zoom will disable several features.  For more information see the Zoom documentation here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360048660871.

How to use end to end encryption for your Zoom meeting:

1. Select schedule a meeting

Zoom app schedule meeting screen

2. Select end to end encryption and save

Zoom encryption setting

Zoom screen sharing capability is a useful tool but also presents a risk.  Be aware that it is easy to accidentally disclose sensitive information by using this feature.  Always be careful to only share information that is meant for your Zoom meeting attendees.  

Please note that for security reasons file sharing has been disabled for participants on UNSW Zoom meetings.  Only the meeting host or hosts can share their screen.

See UNSW Cyber Security tips

UNSW IT enforces a minimum acceptable Zoom application version for UNSW Zoom users.

To ensure cyber security compliance at UNSW, you may be prompted to update the Zoom application on your device when logging in via UNSW SSO prior to commencing your Zoom meeting.

Always utilise the “check for updates” feature within the Zoom application if you need to check the latest version of the application.

How to check your Zoom version or for Zoom updates:

1. Click you profile logo on the top right in the desktop Zoom application

Zoom profile image click


2. Select check for updates

Zoom app updates

3. The Zoom application version will be shown

Zoom App updating

4. Zoom will automatically download the latest version of the Zoom application if there is one available


You should never share your UNSW Zoom credentials with another person or use a shared mailbox to set up and UNSW Zoom account.

UNSW Zoom accounts that were set up using a shared mailbox will soon be phased out. Please migrate your shared mailbox to a personal UNSW Zoom account using the SSO method.

Instead of sharing your credentials, you should use the Zoom scheduling privilege function. The delegate who has been assigned scheduling privilege is able to schedule, manage and act as an alternative host for your meetings.  Note that, the delegate and the main account holder must have a licensed UNSW Zoom account to use scheduling privilege.

If both account holders have a webinar license, then delegate will also be able schedule webinars on behalf of the main account holder.

How to assign scheduling privileges in Zoom:

1. Log in to the UNSW Zoom web portal to see your advanced meeting click "Settings" and then click "Other"

Zoom web portal shared accounts setting location

2. click the + next to "Assign scheduling privilege to"

Zoom schedule meeting assignee

3. Type in the email address of the account holder(s) that you want to assign scheduling privilege to. Use commas to separate multiple email addresses.

Note:  If scheduling privilege cannot be assigned because the user does not have a licensed UNSW Zoom account you will receive an error message: "Can't find user [their email]"

4. Click Assign



How to schedule a meeting for someone else:

1. Once an UNSW Zoom account holder has given you scheduling privileges, logout of the Zoom application and login again to activate your scheduling privilege

2. Click on the Schedule icon

Zoom app schedule meeting screen

3. Choose the user you want to schedule for from the "Schedule for" drop down menu

Zoom app schedule meeting screen

4. Click save

5. This will generate a meeting invite from your email application including the Zoom meeting link.  Enter any additional details into the meeting invite as required and send it out to the intended recipients.  Note, always retain the Zoom meeting link in your invite.

6. Recipients will receive the invite from the delegate’s email address.  The Zoom meeting will be hosted from the main account holder’s Zoom account.

Self Help Guides

Students will be able to log in to Zoom via Single Sign On (SSO) using your zID and zPass at UNSW Zoom Video Conferencing or via the Zoom application.

All meetings hosted from student accounts must be secured with one security option. See Locking and Passcode protecting meetings in the Best Practice Guides above for more information.


Consolidation of accounts

If you are a current UNSW student (not staff) who had a zoom account using a UNSW email address, you will have received an email from Zoom requesting that you either consolidate your account or change your email address.

If so, did you take any action yet?  Your choices are as follows.

Option 1:  Change your email address.

If you would like to continue using your Zoom account under your own personal email address with your current personal Zoom subscription then select “Update Account Information” in the email from Zoom and choose to “change email address”.

Option 2: Choose to continue to use student.unsw.edu.au address

Cloud recordings are encrypted AND copied directly to the Hosts Echo360 library ready to upload to Moodle or other platforms.

Never include the host participants' names, email or other personally identifiable data on the meeting subject line.

Never post meeting links on social media platforms.

The following links provide more information on ‘Hybrid Meetings Best Practice Guide’. and UNSW Digital Privacy Policy


Zoom allows guests to easily join meetings. It also allows guest speakers and lecturers to talk to students. For teaching and learning, the guests speakers must have a Zoom account to participate, but they can sign-up for a free Zoom account if they are not UNSW staff or students.

Video transcripts and captions can be a great resource to enhance learning and bring teams together. They support individuals with hearing impairments, non-native English speakers and those that are slower with the processing of information (such as people with learning difficulties, neurodiversity and other conditions).

To support equity and accessibility, it is important that hosts of webinars, meetings and live events always ensure that live transcripts are available for attendees.  

A free live transcript service is available for Microsoft Teams and Zoom webinars, meetings, and live events.   

For Zoom, the host of the webinar must always enable the live transcript function first so that it is available for attendees to turn on.

View instructions for activating video transcripts and captions for Teams and Zoom.


Zoom third party captioning services

As an alternative to the free Zoom live transcript service, a paid closed captioning service can be managed by third party software or manually.

Third party captioning services should be paid for by the Zoom account holder.
The following link provides step by step guides for third party closed captioning

More information can be found at Zoom Closed Captioning support page


1.Start the meeting or Webinar first

2. click Closed Captions

Location of closed captioing button

3. Choose the Live Transcript option

zoom closed cationing enable


Enable Auto-Transcription: Allows the system to start providing live transcription. Participants will be notified that this service is available.



Using closed captioning in breakout rooms

If you're the meeting host, we recommend using a third-party closed captioning service if you want closed captions in breakout rooms enabled via API token.

If you want a participant to type closed captions, make sure you assign them permission to type closed caption before starting the breakout room sessions:

enable closed captioning on mobile device

After you start breakout room sessions, participants can click Closed Caption in the meeting controls to view closed captions.


    Only one participant can be assigned to type closed captions in a meeting, thus it is only possible to have one breakout session with closed captioning.
    Live transcription is currently not supported in breakout rooms.

Live transcript limitations

The accuracy of Zoom's live transcription feature depends on many variables, such as but not limited to:

    Background noise
    Volume and clarity of the speaker's voice
    Speaker's proficiency with the English language
    Lexicons and dialects specific to a geography or community

Because of these limitations, if you are required to use speech-to-text support for any compliance needs in your meetings and webinars, Zoom recommend using a third part provider who may be able to guarantee a specific accuracy via API token

The desktop client can be manually updated and best practice is to check you have the current version in advance of your meeting. The web app will always be current.

Log into the client and on the top right click on your profile icon the select "Check for Updates" towards the bottom of the drop down list.

Zoom desktop client update process

This UNSW guide has been developed to keep your UNSW Zoom recordings to a manageable size. If you have any further questions please see the Zoom frequently asked questions page in the first instance, or contact UNSW Multimedia and AV team.

Monitor resolution determines the file size of your Zoom recording, the higher the resolution the larger the recorded file size. There will be some instances where a higher resolution is required but for most Zoom meetings and classes a lower resolution will be enough.

The main reasons file sizes should be kept small are:
1.    Reduces storage space on PC if Local recordings is selected
2.    Cloud recordings greater than 5Gb will not be auto loaded to your Echo360 library and requires manual uploading
3.    Some users may encounter difficulties in downloading larger files
4.    Editing of larger files is more time consuming

Reduce the resolution of your display before you start the session and begin recording.

Note: Lowering screen resolution makes text and objects larger in the recording. Make a test recording to see if important content fits comfortably in the viewable area.


Lowering Screen resolution on Windows 10

1.    Click the start menu then select Settings OR click the magnifying glass and type in Settings
2.    Select system then Display

win10 resolution change system settings
win10 resolution change system display settings

3. Scroll down to display resolution and select 1440 x 900

4.    Close the settings window, then start or record your Zoom session with your new selection


Lowering Screen Resolution on a Mac

1.    From the Apple menu, select System Preferences
