First time using Zoom?

  • Before the PolarConnect event, make sure that you have permission to access the webinar platform from your system administrator.
  • The web browser client will download automatically when you start or join your first Zoom meeting, and is also available for manual download at:
  • It is preferable that you download Zoom prior to the seminar date and test it beforehand. You can run a Zoom test at:
  • If connecting prior to the webinar start time, you will enter a waiting room. When the webinar is ready to begin, the host will open the meeting room to all attendees in the waiting room.
  • Once you join the presentation, you will see a PolarConnect Event welcome slide on the main screen and your name will be listed in the Participants Panel. To view the Participant Panel, click on the "Participants" icon along the bottom on your screen.
  • During the presentation, an event host will share information about how to navigate the event room.

Audio Notes

  • When you first enter the PolarConnect Event room, you will be muted.
  • If you are joining by phone, please be sure your phone remains muted during the presentation. Even the smallest background noise can cause a distraction on a conference call. To mute your phone, press *6. To unmute, press *6 again.
  • If you are using the telephone, you will also need to mute the sound on your computer. Not doing this will result in an echoing sound and/or feedback during the webinar.
  • If your internet connection is slow or unstable, you may wish to call-in to listen to the seminar audio for better sound quality.

Event Recording

Please note that the Zoom Video Conferencing service allows audio and chat sent during the session to be recorded. By joining this session, you automatically consent to such recordings. If you do not consent to being recorded, discuss your concerns with the host or do not join the session.
