Why can’t I use the Zoom meeting link to join a meeting?

For safety and security reasons, MidAmerica Region has updated their Zoom policies to omit providing the Zoom link and will only provide the Meeting ID and Passcode information for meetings. This process will allow people a chance to enter their name before joining a meeting. The automatic Zoom link skips this step and makes it is very difficult for staff to allow registered people into a class if their Zoom program identifies them as something other than their full name such as “UU Church”, "John's iPad", or "SuperGamer44."
