How do I manage annotation for all participants in my Zoom class meeting?

For security purposes, the default setting for Tufts Zoom meetings is that only the participant who is sharing content can annotate (draw on screen) during the meeting.

Annotation by other participants can be managed within an ongoing meeting, or before the meeting begins, as follow —

Method 1 - Manage annotation within an ongoing Zoom meeting

The person who is sharing content can click "More" in their floating toolbar and choose "Enable Annotation for Others"

Method 2 - Manage annotation before the Zoom meeting is launched

Log into tufts.zoom.us and go to "Settings"

Log into https://tufts.zoom.us with your Zoom credentials and SSO. Once logged in go to "Settings"

In the Settings menu click on "In Meeting (Basic)" and scroll down to "Annotation"

To allow annotation for all participants in all your Zoom meetings, uncheck "Only the user who is sharing can annotate" and click "Save"

To prevent annotation by any participant in all your Zoom meetings, toggle Annotation to "Off" (gray)
