Email Addresses and Zoom

This article lists important information for Faculty, Staff, and Students to understand how Boise State email addresses interact with Zoom Accounts.

  • Everyone at Boise State should only have ONE Zoom account, even if they have both a student email address and an employee email address.

 

  • Your Zoom account uses your “PeopleSoft Preferred Email Address.” Because of this, email addresses cannot be manually changed within Zoom.

    • If you are primarily a student, the preferred email address is your student email.

    • If you are primarily an employee, the preferred email address is your employee email. 

 

  • You can see your email address in Zoom by signing into boisestate.zoom.us/profile and scrolling down to your email.

    • Click the eyeball icon to show the email address and see which email your Zoom account uses. 

 

  • If you switched recently from being primarily a student to primarily an employee or vice-versa, please sign into http://boisestate.zoom.us and your email address will be updated to reflect the new primary affiliation.

    • Please Note: It may take a day or two after your primary affiliation (employee versus student) changes in order for the change to take effect; if you expect to see a change, please wait a day and sign in again to http://boisestate.zoom.us to see if the email address has updated. 

 

  • There are no issues with student-employees using Zoom accounts that have their student email address. All Zoom accounts at Boise State have the same permissions for faculty, staff, and students. If you are a student-employee, please assure your supervisor that it is fine for the Zoom account to use your student email. 

 

  • If you are primarily a student, you cannot change your Zoom account to use your employee email address. If you are primarily an employee, you cannot change your Zoom account to use your student email address.
