Activating a Zoom account for an Alias

For Zoom accounts attached to an email alias and not to a personal account, there is a different method for activating the account, as detailed below.

  • The Zoom activation email should be sent to all who are on the email alias list. Access the email from one of those accounts and click on Activate Your Zoom Account or the link listed below it.

  • On the page that opens, click on Sign up with a Password

  • On the next page you will be asked to give a first and last name, as well as a password. These names are what will appear when this account is used, so choose something that accurately represents what the alias account will be used for (ie. First: Llama Breeders Club, Last Name: of St.Olaf). 

  • Enter and confirm a password and select Continue.

  • Done! You are now logged in and can see the Zoom ID associated with this account and you can begin scheduling meetings. Anyone with the email alias and password information will now be able to log in to this account to schedule, modify and start Zoom meetings. Remind users to always access or the account through the app to use Sign in with a Password, and not Sign in With Google.
