Enabling Registration for Zoom Meetings

When scheduling a Zoom meeting for an event, seminar or other general presentation, you may be interested in having participants register beforehand. Doing this will allow you to collect information about participants as well as restrict access to the meeting so that only registered participants can join. If this is for an internal event where only Drexel community members will be attending, we recommend using the existing LeBow Website registration process (email lcbweb@drexel.edu for more information). If this is for an external event, you can use the built-in registration system available in Zoom. Follow the instructions below to enable registration for your events in Zoom.
