Zoom's new Slide Control feature allows someone else to advance your slides without having full remote control of your device. No more having to say "next slide!" Once sharing a Keynote or Powerpoint, click "Slide Control" on the sharing toolbar and select one or more participants you wish to give slide control.

Make sure you are on Zoom version 5.8.3 or higher for both Windows and Macs. Zoom on IT-managed devices will be upgraded soon!

Follow the steps below to enable Slide Control on your account:

  1. Visit the UCLA Health Zoom web page,, and login with your Mednet username and password
  2. In the navigation panel on the left-hand side, click Settings.
  3. Click the Meeting tab.
  4. Under In Meeting (Basic), click the Slide Control toggle to enable or disable it.
