Pros and Cons of Zoom Meet

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: I really appreciate with the advancement in technology especially in Zoom Meeting since it allows meeting in long distance even just from your home, no distance barrier makes it a highlight point.

Pros:

As a teacher, I am able to conduct my teaching lesson with higher efficiency with my lovely students. Besides that, Zoom enables me to share screen during my lessons and enable my students to see the screen and shared materials crystal-clear. Plus, it provides better microphone so that my sound can be heard clearly.

Cons:

Some of the features is premium, so need to purchase, but mostly do not.

Living my business life on zoom

3.0 3 years ago

Comments: I’m in a good position to share the pros (& cons) as my entire business is run on zoom; my 1:1 clients, group coaching, workshops, masterclasses, Meetup networking group, live broadcasted webinars, and my team who all word remotely.
The pros are many:the company has grown substantially thanks to being able to use platforms line zoom. I love that they’re fixing and tweaking (filters etc) from time to time.
The customer service is undoubtedly appalling. For months and months we’ve been trying to fix the same problems - which are many - and keep coming up frustrated.
Have been researching moving to other platforms which come much more highly recommended, however need those platforms to have better filtering options and then we’ll be jumping ship.
In summary it’s not good value for money as soon as you move on from just the regular meetings subscription and the customer service is an abomination - they won’t even zoom with you to fix a multitude of issues.

Pros:

The pros are many: everyone knows what zoom is now, so makes it easier to run my business this way. Has great filters so I can improve my lighting (alongside ring lights etc) and touch up my appearance - love this feature! Can screen share with ease which is so great in my line of work (digital marketing coach) Can integrate with other platforms (switchboard for example) so can go live on multiple platforms. Can present huge presentations. Can record sessions to share with clients / attendees which is adding value.

Cons:

So much to dislike. - the worst customer service I’ve ever come across. We have multiple problems with the platform that have been plaguing us for months, and go figure - ZOOM customer service will not zoom with us to sort out the issues. Back and forth with customer service is a waste of time and fruitless. - Integrations with calendars can be extremely glitchy. - Go live function is terrible. Have had to pay for external software to make this happen. - have to pay addition $$ just to ensure that attendees can’t be seen on one of our weekly webinars. The price jump from meetings is high. - can have a pretty bad lag. Our internet in Australia is not world-class, but still you’d want zoom to be performing better a lot of the time. - the settings are complicated. - the recording situation is a nightmare. We want it ALL to go to the cloud, then we download to Dropbox and share with clients. This is the most problematic issue. When integrating with goal ajd Calendly this often iverrides and sets up as saving to the desktop. Can’t change settings without cancelling and resetting. Often gets stuck converting the file on desktop (can be very long recordings) and then we’re stuffed. Again, zoom customer service are seriously disappointing. So many more things I could mention ...

Zoom makes webinars easy

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: Since Covid began, Zoom is indispensable for people in higher education. I get upset if I have to use another platform!

Pros:

I can’t picture today’s world of easily attended, widely accessible webinars in my areas of interest without Zoom.

Cons:

Sometimes it is difficult to know who is host, and only the host can find out. But overall this is good, to limit access to those in charge.

Effective and Efficient tool for Event Management

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Pros:

Being able to record helps in going back to discussion when needed. Also the caption feature is great addition.

Cons:

Being able to see the participants while sharing the screen really helps read the room.
