Setup to Increase Engagement

Enable Participant Photos

Feedback has been that allowing participants to display a profile picture when they are not sharing their video improves the experience of a zoom session. This gives the presenters and other participants an impression of who is in the room.

  1. Go to
  2. Settings > Meeting (Basic) > scroll right down to authenticated users > HIde Participant profile pictures in a meeting
  3. Check it is turned off

Please Note: this will only impact meetings where you are the host. If you are a co-host you will need the host to change the settings in their Zoom account.

With any meeting where participants have options to share content, it is good to review the Security Settings.

See the interactive tools for options on engaging participants.
