Automatically generate a meeting ID
For each meeting that you schedule, you can either allow Zoom to use your personal meeting ID, or generate a new meeting ID for each meeting (please note for recurring meetings, the meeting ID will always be the same, even if you select to generate a new meeting ID).
Your personal meeting ID never changes, meaning that if you use it to schedule a meeting, any attendee from that meeting has your credentials and the ability to join any future meetings you set up. It is therefore strongly recommended that you do not use your personal meeting ID for scheduled meetings.
By default, an automatically generated ID is used at UCL.
In addition to using the meeting ID, you can also set a password for your meetings; this option is on by default at UCL. This means attendees are required to enter the password in addition to the meeting ID to join.
Enable waiting room
This feature means that attendees will not be able to join your meeting automatically, but will have to wait for you to manually admit them. This provides security if a person has obtained the meeting ID but should not be attending. At UCL all internal attendees who are logged in to their UCL Zoom account will be able to join the meeting without being put in the waiting room; all externals will be placed in the waiting room until the host admits them.
Note that if you enable the setting join before host then you will not be able to enable the waiting room as these features are mutually exclusive.
