*As soon as possible, test Zoom from your device using this link: https://zoom.us/test

Do this at least a few days ahead of time so that you have some wiggle room if you’ll need your techie colleagues or IT department to help you if there’s an issue with loading Zoom on your end.

Note: You'll have more tool capability and viewing options if you use a desktop or laptop computer. Your next best option is a tablet. Phones limit your participation options.
