Important Changes to Zoom

As we prepare for a virtual Fall, we wanted to update you on some important changes to Zoom that are designed to make your use of Zoom easier and more secure, both for faculty/staff meetings and classes.

Access to your Zoom account

As you may know, Zoom accounts are provided by a statewide grant from the California Community College Chancellor’s Office. Currently, a centralized office, ConferZoom, is the administrator for all Zoom accounts in the CCC system.

On August 21st, ConferZoom transfered administration of our district accounts to FHDA.

Logging into Zoom

When you log in to your Zoom account through the web, you'll log in at

You may still log in through or, it will simply redirect you to the FHDA subaccount.

Your current log in and password will work seamlessly with the new subaccount, and all your meetings will automatically transfer to our new subaccount.

If you are linking to Zoom recordings you will need to update the links. For help visit Online Learning office hours to connect with one of us.

Using Zoom from within Canvas

The new app “Foothill Zoom” replaced the ConferZoom app within Canvas.

Foothill Zoom works seamlessly with your FHDA Zoom account. When you schedule a meeting in Canvas through the Foothill Zoom app, the meeting will automatically be added to your FHDA Zoom account—in fact, the app is connected to this account! In addition, the new Foothill Zoom app will add the meeting to your Canvas Calendar.

Zoom Updates

Beginning September 27th, Zoom will require that all meetings have either a password or a waiting room. Please update all existing meetings to reflect these requirements.
