  4. Click Edit next to the room or location you want to change.
  5. Change the following settings in each tab:
    Note: This is not a complete list of all settings that can be changed. 

Rooms Profile tab

  • Room Name: The display name to help you and users in your account identify the room. This name is used in all relevant interfaces including the web portal, room controllers, displays, and the contacts directory in the client/app.
  • Display Name (optional): This allows you to set a shorter display name for the Zoom Room that doesn't include unnecessary prefixes or internal location codenames. If you leave this option blank, the Room Name is used. Use the following options to select where the display name, if configured, will appear:
    • Use on Scheduling Display: Select this option to have the configured display name appear on the scheduling display. For example, if your room name is "San Jose Office - Downtown Conference Room" you may wish to use a display name of just "Downtown."

    • Use on Zoom Rooms and Controller: Select this option to have the configured display name appear on the Zoom Rooms display and controller.

      • Let others see the display name: Select this option to have the Zoom Room use the display name when joining meetings. Other meeting participants will see the display name instead of the room name on the participants list and as a label on the Zoom Rooms' video.

  • Room Type: The room type determines the features available to the room and its intended use. Review the different room types before making a change. 
  • Speaker: Select which speaker you would like the room to use by default. Adjust the volume slider bar to set the default speaker volume for when you start or join a meeting. 

Meeting tab

  • Display top banner on TV in meeting: Display the room name or display name, time and/or sharing key on the top portion of display by default. Room participants can enable or disable this banner using in-meeting settings. Click the check boxes to select what is displayed.
  • Bypass the password when joining meetings from meeting list: When users join or start a meeting using the meeting list on the controller, they don't need to enter the meeting password (if there's one applied to the meeting). This setting doesn't apply to instant meetings.
