  • Networking features
    • Reactions added to Zoom Events profiles
      Viewers can use the “applaud” and “like” reactions to express approval or liking of certain parts of another user’s profile, such as their interests and education background.
  • Integration features
    • Update to Zoom Events mapping data to Marketo
      Event organizers and markets can now use their own Marketo programs and map to a pre-existing program; previously they had to use Zoom generated programs.
    • Store session-level attendance and engagement data in a Marketo custom object
      Event organizers can now write session-level attendance and engagement data to a Marketo custom object, making it easier for lead scoring, segmentation, and personalization.
    • Unique join link and ticket info sent to Marketo
      The unique join link sent to each registrant is now sent to Marketo, making it easier to merge the unique join link to send out with emails.
    • Event organizer and co-editors allowed to see and update integrations UI
      Event organizers and approved co-editors now have access to the same integration configuration UI and see the same settings for events they have access to. Changes made by one user will persist and will be viewable and editable by other enabled users.
    • Pre-mapping of default Zoom Events registration fields to corresponding Pardot fields
      Default Zoom Events registration fields are pre-mapped to corresponding fields in Pardot, eliminating the extra time required used manually map fields.
    • Registrations via Eloqua sent to Zoom Events
      Eloqua can now register campaign members for a Zoom Event; the registrant’s name, email address, and ticket ID are sent to Zoom Events. The integration UI will validate for a user if they added the correct/incorrect ticket ID when configuring the action app to register attendees from an Eloqua campaign.
  • Trust and safety features
    • Improvement to reporting user or incident process
      When entering a user's name when reporting someone within an event, the name you have entered will be cross-checked against the attendee list to confirm that a person with that name exists in the event. This will help prevent inaccurate reporting.
    • Implementation of limit to number of emails sent per day
      The total number of emails an account can send in a day has been capped to enhance security and safety on the Zoom Events platform. The new sending limits do not affect users’ existing customization options, such as the custom email templates, sending test emails, changing email notification settings, or sending out certain types of emails automatically.
      • As the account type scales for more users on an account, the account type's daily send limits also scale to compensate for additional emails. 
      • If the daily maximum sends more emails than what the limit allows, the Investigation Risk Management (IRM) team will be notified.
  • Developer features
