The Zoom Dashboard allows administrators on the account to view information ranging from overall usage to live in-meeting data. This data can be used to analyze issues that may have occurred as well as better understand how users are holding meetings in your company.
Dashboard data updates at 12:00 GMT daily. Data is stored in the Dashboard for 12 months.

How to understand the Dashboard tab
The Dashboard tab allows you to view broad statistics on the overall usage of Zoom. Data on the dashboard page can be filtered by date at the top left.
The Dashboard tab provides graphs for quick statistics on users, meetings, and Zoom Rooms. Many of the graphs have arrows to adjust which data is being shown and you can export the information by clicking the download arrow icon in the top-right corner of the chart.
How to understand the Meetings tab
The Meetings section allows you to see the total live meetings as well as past meetings being held. Past meetings can be exported to a CSV file. This overview will show if audio, video, screen sharing, and recording were being used in the meeting as well. You can also see the license types of each user on your account.
Selecting any meeting ID will give more information on the meeting being held. This information ranges from where users were connecting and network quality information. For meetings in progress, the Join as an assistant button allows an admin to join the meeting as a co-host if the host is currently logged in and in the meeting. For past meetings, you can hover over the information icon to see how a participant left the meeting.
Selecting any participant's name can provide more in-depth detail about their connection. Showing the current send/receive rates for various portions of the call.
You will also be able to see real-time graphs that indicate connection quality for sending/receiving video, audio, and shared content. If nothing is being sent or received at that time, no information will show. The following will be captured in the dashboard:
- Bitrate - the number of bits per second that can be transmitted along with a digital network.
- Latency - the amount of time it takes for a packet to travel from one point to another. In Zoom's case, the time it takes an audio, video, or screen share packet to travel from the Zoom client to the Zoom cloud.
- Jitter - the variation in the delay of received packets.
- Avg. Loss - the average amount of packet loss, which is the percentage of packets that fail to arrive at their destination.
- Max Loss - the max amount of packet loss, that is the max percentage of packets that fail to arrive at their destination.
