Did you know that you can create your own Zoom account and log into that account using your UGA MyID? Well, you certainly can! To create a new account or to log into an existing account, just go to https://uga.zoom.us and click on “Sign In”. You will then be presented with the familiar UGA CAS login form.
If you have a Zoom account, you will be logged into that account. If you do not already have an account, one will be created for you and, based on your personnel information, your account will be assigned to the proper sub-account (such as College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences).
Due to the recent UGA Human Capital Management (HCM) conversion and Zoom authentication updates, some Zoom user accounts were placed in the wrong sub-account when logging in using CAS. Now that these issues have been resolved, users who were previously assigned to the wrong sub-account will be prompted to switch to a new account. This is actually confirming they are switching to the correct sub-account under UGA’s master account. Once the switch is completed, all settings and saved meetings will move to the new sub-account. The attached step-by-step instructions (titled “Why does Zoom prompt to create a new account“) will help you through this process.
In the future, if users move to a different unit within UGA, they will likely be prompted to repeat this process in order to move their Zoom account under the appropriate sub-account associated with their new unit.
