Things to know: 

  • The Start/Join button is the same as clicking the link. 
  • The link is the same every meeting for the whole study year. 
  • The link is unique to your Online Leaders Meeting.  It won’t work for anyone else’s meeting. 
  • It is necessary to click the Join Meeting button in order to capture the attendance. 
  • The actual Zoom information AFTER starting the meeting (under the Green Shield in the upper left corner) *CHANGES* each meeting, so make sure you are using the button or link on the BSF Online website. 
  • If you use a tablet or phone, you need to have the Zoom application downloaded to your device. (Not recommended to host a meeting on a small device)
