Pre-registering Zoom Sessions guests

Last Updated:

Hosts can pre-register users by directly sending them emails with event join links when publishing an event. Pre-registration eliminates the need for attendees to register before joining a Zoom Sessions event. After being pre-registered for an event by the host, attendees will receive join links in an email invitation when the event is published.

Hosts can control whether pre-registered guests will receive a join link, require registration, and receive email notifications. Hosts can also do the following actions:

  • Bulk-upload external tickets and registrations, providing support for users that register on Zoom Sessions (other ticketing or manual registration lists)
  • Add or delete pre-registered attendees
  • Extract registration or join links from registration management

Prerequisites for pre-registering Zoom Sessions guests

Note: For access to the latest Zoom Events and Webinar features, we strongly recommend hosts to update to the latest version of the Zoom desktop client/mobile application.
