Four Tweaks That Will Make Your Life With Zoom More Productive 📢

I am on Zoom calls every day for 4-5 hours. Over the past year, I felt that I didn't like the process of creating, conducting, and ending a video call and found how to fix it: 1. When starting a call, you need to make a couple of extra clicks to get a link to the conference. It is treated like this - in the settings, put a checkmark "Copy invitation link at the start of the conference" and voila, the link is immediately in the buffer; 2. Regularly someone from the participants needs to show the screen, and by default, this is prohibited without the permission of the organizer. In the settings, we look for this and allow the screen to be shared with everyone and always; 3. When exiting the config, by default, Zoom asks for confirmation that I really want to leave it. In the settings, uncheck the box "Ask me to confirm before I leave the conference"; 4. Allow all or certain contacts to enter the conference without confirmation - without my consent. If there is a link, then it can enter. I click less, and the interlocutor does not expect "in the waiting room." Saves clicks and tens of seconds. Cumulatively, it will hardly take an hour in a year, but it's so nice not to waste yourself on nothing 😎 Do you use Zoom? Tell us about your hacks and best practices.

Hey Arsen! Didn't know about (3). I'm always annoyed with that extra few seconds to confirm the leaving. Usually I make grumpy faces at the end of the meeting, trying to hit that second button :) also, one tip about zoom (not strictly related to productivity) is to disable both mic and camera upon joining. It can save you (and other meeting participants) from unwanted situations.
