Overall Satisfaction with Zoom

We use Zoom throughout our organization for virtual meetings and for webinars. It has addressed problems with needed social distancing during the COVID pandemic as well as bringing users together who work at different locations.
  • Ease of use for end users.
  • Easy to set up meetings.
  • Recording: Not easy to get to or use recordings of Zoom (i.e. not easy to add the recording as a video in a learning/training object for our LMS)
  • Dial-in option takes too long (most of us do not have microphones or cameras on our PCs).
  • Dial in
  • Recording
  • Social distancing
  • Eliminated travel time for meeting attendees.
Zoom has more features than Webex. I was not involved in the decision-making process to choose Zoom over Webex so I can't say why we selected Zoom.

Well-suited for team meetings when team members are at different locations. Well-suited for social distancing needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Not as well suited for meetings when interpersonal communication is needed (i.e. body language) since not everyone has a camera or microphone.
