Passwords for Zoom Meetings

Starting on June 30, 2020, all Zoom meetings -- instant, scheduled, and Personal Meeting Room -- will require a password. If you have created a meeting prior to this date, please follow the steps below to add a password to your meeting.

Note About 2U: The June 30th change to Emerson's Zoom domain will not impact 2U's Zoom instance in any way, as they are separately managed. However, this change will likely be required by Zoom for ALL instances in the future, and is recommended as a security best practice.

Updating Meetings through the Web

  1. Log into your Emerson Zoom account at zoom.emerson.edu.
  2. Navigate to Meetings in the lefthand menu bar.
  3. You will see a list of all Upcoming Meetings. Any meeting with a Alert icon does not have a password and will need one added.
  4. Click the meeting topic and scroll down to select the Edit this Meeting button
  5. On the Edit Meeting page, scroll down to the Meeting Password section and check the Require Meeting Password box -- a random six-digit password will be generated. This password can be edited -- please refer to Zoom's guide on password requirements.
  6. Scroll all the way down and click the Save button when you're done!
  7. Be sure to send new emails and calendar invites with the updated meeting information.
    • If you have created a Zoom meeting via the Canvas integration and students only access it via the Zoom tab in Canvas, no action is necessary.
    • If you have also emailed the meeting link to students or pasted the meeting link elsewhere in the Canvas course, you will need to add a password and manually update it in every place that you have shared the link.

Adding Passwords to Personal Meeting Rooms

  1. Log into your Emerson Zoom account at zoom.emerson.edu.
  2. Navigate to Meetings in the lefthand menu bar.
  3. Select Personal Meeting Room from the top menu bar.
  4. Scroll down to select the Edit this Meeting button.
  5. On the Edit Meeting page, scroll down to the Meeting Password section and check the Require Meeting Password box -- a random six-digit password will be generated. This password can be edited -- please refer to Zoom's guide on password requirements.
  6. Scroll all the way down and click the Save button when you're done!
  7. Be aware that the URL to your Personal Meeting Room has now changed -- be sure to update all emails and invites to reflect this new link.
