Welcome to “Where is it in Zoom?”, a resource for faculty and staff making the transition from Adobe Connect to Zoom Meeting. As you get started with Zoom, there will be times when you can’t find a specific tool or feature because it has a different name or location than in Adobe Connect. This gives you a list of some commonly used high-level features, how they compare between the two products (how to access these features), and links to available documentation.
