Full Meeting of the Council

Mon, 09 Nov 2020 19:00

The New Mills Town Council Virtual Waiting Room will be open and monitored between 18:45 – 19:00.

Please be prompt for this, and all, meetings.

Admittance to the full meeting, once started, may not be possible as the Waiting Room will no longer be fully and actively monitored.

It is important to note that Clerk and Admin Emails are only monitored during normal office hours. Requests to enter the meeting, sent by email, will not be seen until the next working day.

Meeting length may not be the allotted 2hrs. Once all matters have been covered the session will end.

Please find below detailed instructions on how to log on to the Meeting using manual methods

Logging in to a Zoom Meeting from an Email/Calendar Request.

These instructions make an important assumption – you have already registered an account with Zoom, the app/program is installed on to your computer/smart phone and you are logged in to it correctly.

We will also address the question of security at this point: Zoom is as secure as any other remote viewing/meeting programs out there. As long as you are careful with the details for the personal meeting room you can create and also use good password practices then the risk is no greater than any other virtual meeting program.

Please note that you will also need either a suitable smart phone, laptop (with speakers, webcam and mic) or a desktop with speakers and a suitable webcam for full interaction with Zoom meetings.

This guide to logging in to meetings assumes all the above and that the user is reasonably conversant with Zoom and the associated hardware.

Virtual Meeting – Good Practice Methods.

Upon entry to any room/meeting, immediately mute your mic (bottom left corner), you can unmute by either clicking in it or by pressing the space bar for a temporary unmute (releasing the spacebar automatically remutes you).

Avoid talking over each other. Allow the Chair to speak and take questions. Allow others to answer. Raise your hand within the screen if you wish to speak.

Avoid using the text chat option – things can get missed using that method.

Be courteous to all participants – remember, the Chair has the ability and authority to remove any participant not demonstrating proper decorum.

Logging in to Zoom using the Zoom Meeting ID and Password.

Open your email and write down the Zoom ID and Password.

They should agree with below:

Meeting ID: 582 726 9798

Passcode: NMTCnov20

Two points for clarity:

The o in nov above is the non-capitalised letter 0.

And the 0 in 20 is a zero, not a letter.

Now open up your Zoom client, ensure you are logged in and click on "Join".

Enter the Zoom Meeting ID (the 10 or 11 digit number). Ensure your name is correct and the two boxes beneath your name are unticked. Then click "Join". You will then be prompted for the password and asked about joining with audio. Enter in the password exactly as supplied in the email and ensure you are joining with audio enabled. Once the correct details are entered in the message will advise you that you are waiting to be admitted by the host.

Once the host accepts you, you will enter the room. Again, accept and agree to any audio/video options.

Logging in to Zoom using a Hyperlink Sent via Email.

Open your email client and click on the link provided. You may be asked for the password. If so, use the password provided at the top this email beneath the Zoom Meeting ID.

As you come in to the meeting it will ask about various video and sound options – accept and agree to these so you can be seen and heard.

The hyperlink should take you straight to a message advising you that you are waiting to be admitted by the host.

Once the host accepts you, you will enter the room. Again, accept and agree to any audio/video options.
