If you experienced problems with scheduling your Zoom meetings on a Windows or Mac computer with Zoom Workplace, then update your app to version 6.1.1 today.  

Why do I need to update Zoom Workplace to version 6.1.1?

Zoom released an update to Zoom Workplace (version 6.1.1) on June 30, 2024, to eliminate a previous issue on version 6.1.0 where anyone on a Windows or Mac computer were unable to choose a date besides the current day to schedule their meetings, until they selected a specific time zone.

This issue with Zoom Workplace 6.1.0 occurred even if you had already chosen a time zone in your Zoom profile. The time zone would still show up blank when scheduling a meeting in the Zoom Workplace app.

How do I update Zoom Workplace to version 6.1.1?

Update your Zoom Workplace app on your personally owned Windows or Mac computers by following Zoom’s instructions on their website. You can also learn more information about which version number of Zoom you currently have

All UB-owned managed devices will be automatically updated by departmental IT staff.
