If you click on "Zoom" or "Zoom Health" in the Course Navigation and see a Warning message, this is for one of three reasons:
- You have not yet activated your U-M Zoom or Zoom for Health at U-M account. Anyone with a Teacher, TA, Designer, or Admin role in the Canvas course must first activate their Zoom account to use Zoom through Canvas. See Activating Your Zoom Account.
- You are a member of Zoom for Health at U-M, but you are trying to use the "Zoom" option, which is only for members of regular U-M Zoom (i.e. not Zoom for Health at U-M users). To fix this, enable the "Zoom Health" option in course navigation and disable the "Zoom" option.
- You are a member of regular U-M Zoom, but you are trying to use the "Zoom Health" option, which is only for members of Zoom for Health at U-M. To fix this, enable the "Zoom" option in course navigation and disable the "Zoom Health" option.
