Zoom meetings work best when both the host and the participants are logged in. Some meetings may also require that participants log in before they can join and participate as a security feature.
In order to gain access to the full set of Zoom features when hosting a meeting such as screen sharing, breakout rooms, and recording, the host must be logged in to the Zoom software on their computer or mobile device.
