Zoom has currently disabled the file share option as it is deemed a possible security issue. It maybe re-instated once this is resolved.

Should you wish to share files please use the University approved file share method, such as Strathcloud.

In-Meeting file transfer allows you to send files to other meeting participants during the meeting through the in-meeting chat.
