Understanding the new event creation experience

Last Updated:

The Zoom Events multiple sessions event creation flow experience aligns with the Zoom Sessions (single-session) event setup, focusing on discoverability and grouping controls together. Zoom Events introduces the new event creation flow for hosts:

  • Event Configuration: Broad configuration for the entire event.
  • The following event creation tabs and sections provide centralized controls on attendee experiences:
    • Event Detail Page
    • Registration & Ticketing
    • Event Experience: Lobby, Expo, In Session Experience, and Moderation
    • Post Event: Event organizers have the ability to modify event surveys and the lobby close date.
  • Special Roles: Single consolidated place for all special roles involved with the event.

On the Event Detail Page and (Event Experience) Lobby tabs, there are additional content controls where hosts can control what sessions, speakers, and exhibitors will be visible on the respective page for attendees. This allows hosts more control over what is displayed on each part of the experience and the ability to hide all event content until it's ready. Each selection has controls to allow all, select, or none of the content to be displayed for attendees.
