When I log in to my UW Zoom account, I see a message “You have logged in from another device. Messenger is now inactive.”
If you see this message, you were logged in to another computer with the same account and Zoom automatically logged you out of the other computer. Zoom is limited to one zoom host account logged in, per computer. If you try to log in to two different computers with the same Zoom host account, you will be logged out. Learn more.
When I start my UW Zoom meeting, I see a message “You have a meeting that is currently in progress. Please end it to start a new meeting.”
If you see this message, your UW Zoom host account is currently running a meeting on another computer. A UW Zoom host account can host only one meeting at a time. To end one meeting and begin another, click End Other Meeting and then start your new meeting.
How do I add live captions during my meeting?
You can invite a professional caption provider to your Zoom meeting to provide live captions as you meet. If you record your meeting, the captions will be added to the recording. Learn more.
