New Feature: Preferred Pronouns Now Available!

We are happy to announce that preferred pronouns are now available within Zoom! Once users have set their preferred pronouns in myJH, they will automatically become visible on their Zoom profile within 24 hours. See below for steps on setting up your preferred pronouns.

Please Note: Automatic transfer of preferred pronouns from myJH to Zoom is only available for Zoom accounts where Single Sign On (SSO) is being used for authentication.
