See what SLU faculty, staff and students are saying about Fuze!
The Fuze applications for Windows and Mac computers now have a cleaner, more intuitive user interface available. The simplified look and more intuitive placement of meeting controls makes it easier to find important meeting controls like Share, Mute, Turn Off/On Video, Switch Audio, and Add Participants. The buttons for Meeting Notes and Chat are now easier to locate as well.
Fuze also introduced a More Menu to help consolidate in-meeting controls (ie. Mute All, Hide Participants, Record Meeting, etc.), making more room for video pods and shared content. Please click for an overview of the new Fuze in-meeting experience.
All SLU faculty, staff and students are able to create their own Fuze account in one of these two ways:
- Launch the Fuze client and log in using your SLU email address and password to create your Fuze account.
- Go to https://www.fuze.com and click 'Login' in the top-right corner of the page. You can then create your account using your SLU email address and password.
- Requests for generic or shared Fuze accounts are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Please review the policies for managing a shared Fuze account on the Fuze Meeting Policies & Guidelines for the requirements and request process.
For your SLU-managed Windows PC:
- Please request the Fuze client installation from your IT Service Desk, since the installation now requires administrator rights on the computer.
- Please note: The New Fuze for Windows client requires the Microsoft .NET 4.5 Framework to be installed on your computer. Some other SLU systems require an older version of the .NET Framework, such as IDX, so the Fuze client should not be installed these computers.
For your personal computer, phone, or tablet:
- Visit the Fuze Download page at www.fuze.com/download to install the currently available Fuze client, or app, for your device.
