Editing event details for Zoom Events

Last Updated:

After you publish an event for Zoom Events, you have the opportunity to edit that event. Event creators can edit drafts and upcoming events. This feature is useful because you can update your event so your attendees always have up-to-date information.

This enables event organizers to publish events with minimal but necessary content—to provide exposure to the event as early as possible—while providing time behind the scenes so the event can build over time with more added information.

Zoom Event details that can be edited after publishing

  • After a single-session event, recurring series event, or multiple sessions event is published, the host can edit their event’s ticket details for any published event even if it already has registrants. The Quantity, Ticket Name, Description, Registration Starts/Ends fields are editable and will apply to future registration after they are updated. Additionally, hosts can add to or delete the guest list.
