Ever hosted a Zoom meeting and wanted to mark-up the content on the screen to help identify key items? Try the annotation feature that allows you and your meeting participants to add notes, drawings, and highlights to the content that is shared on your screens. This feature works great to help a team work collaboratively and edit projects like a report or presentation, or to show steps on how to solve an equation, like you would on a whiteboard.
To get started, enable Annotation in your Zoom account:
Once you have the annotation feature enabled, you can start annotating during your meetings by accessing the annotation tools. To access the tools:
Allowing Participants to Annotate
In the middle of hosting a meeting and decide that you would like other participants to also annotate the shared screen? Click More in the screen share controls at the top of the screen and then click Enable/Disable Annotation for Others to allow participants to annotate too.
Meeting participants then annotate the shared screen by following the same steps above. You can also choose to hide or show the name of the participants when they are annotating by clicking More in the screen share controls and then clicking Hide/Show Names of Annotators.
Saving Your Annotations
Wrapping up with the meeting and want to save the annotations made? In the annotation tool bar, click Save and Zoom will save a screenshot of your screen with the annotations to the local recording destination. The screenshots will be stored in your Documents/Zoom folder.
