Zoom users should be aware of the important distinction between Cornell-authenticated Zoom accounts (that is, those created through cornell.zoom.us or the Canvas platform) and personal Zoom accounts that were created using the person’s Cornell email address when signing up at the corporate Zoom website, zoom.us.
Cornell Zoom user accounts are recognized when you login using Cornell's Single Sign On through the cornell.zoom.us website or using the "cornell" domain when signing in through the desktop application.

- Will not be flagged as a Guest user in the participant list that the meeting host sees
