Release notes for August 23, 2020 Follow

New updates for Web

Changes to existing features

  • Cloud recording passwords now called Passcodes
    Cloud recording passwords will now be called Passcodes to prevent confusion with your individual user password, which should never be shared.

New and enhanced features

  • Administrator features
    • Report of recordings without a passcode
      Account owners and admins can now view a report of all recordings without a passcode. The report is available under the Reports of Account Management. This is a one-time report, with information pulled at the time of the release and will not be updated.
    • Select Germany, the Netherlands, and Ireland as data centers for meetings/webinars hosted by your account
      Germany, the Netherlands, and Ireland will now be listed as individual data centers that can be enabled or disabled for hosting real-time meeting and webinar traffic. This will allow account owners and admins more granular control over where their meetings are hosted. If the Europe data center was enabled, Germany, the Netherlands, and Ireland will be enabled. This is available in account, group, and user settings and can be locked at the account or group level.
    • Upload virtual backgrounds for a group or an individual user
      Account owners can now upload and manage virtual backgrounds for a group on the Zoom web portal. Individual users can upload and manage virtual backgrounds for their own use.
    • Calendar and Contacts section under Account Settings
      Account settings related to calendar and contacts can now be found in the Calendar and Contacts section of the Meeting Tab within Account Settings. Account owners and admins can set the default calendar provider and pick calendar and contact access permissions. These settings can also be locked.
    • Limit which domains can integrate calendar and contact services
      Account owners and admins can now limit which domains can integrate calendar and contact services within Account Settings. Once this setting is enabled, admins can enter which domains are allowed to integrate these services.
    • Setting to prompt user to integrate Office 365 each time they sign in
      Account owners and admins can now enable a setting to prompt users to integrate Office 365 each time they sign in. This will prompt them each time they sign in to Zoom until the integration is completed.
    • Enhanced Office 365 calendar sync
      Users can now sync their Office 365 calendar without requiring full mailbox access.
    • Display certificate expiration date on the Single Sign-on page
      The Single Sign-on page will display the certificate expiration date, warning admins that the certificate will soon expire and allowing them to proactively update the certificate, preventing login issues. Account owners and admins will also receive an email notification 30 days before the certificate will expire.
    • Update users’ names in the webinar attendee report
      If a user changes their name during a webinar, it will now update in the webinar attendee report.
    • Search or download chat history for up to one year for an individual user
      Account owners and admins can now search and download chat history for up to one year for an individual user.
  • User features
    • Custom languages for language interpretation
      You can now add custom languages in addition to the default languages provided. Any number of custom languages can be added in the Zoom web portal, but only 5 custom languages can be used in any given meeting or webinar. The interpreter and participants accessing the custom languages will need to be on client 5.2.1 or later to use custom languages.
    • Post webinar survey and reporting
      Webinar hosts can now create a post webinar survey in the Zoom web portal and launch this survey at the end of their webinar. Webinar hosts can also access a report of the survey results in the Zoom web portal.
    • Enhanced Meetings page
      The Meetings page of the Zoom web portal has been enhanced for improved navigation and usability, including the addition of a date range filter to more easily find upcoming meetings.
    • Call Me for Webinar attendees
      Webinar attendees can now use the call me feature for audio. Hosts can enable this option under the Call Me setting on the web, which requires the Audio Conferencing add-on. This feature requires client version 5.2.2 or later. 
    • Language interpretation in Meeting Templates
      Language interpretation settings will now be included as part of saved meeting templates.
    • Open local recordings from the Zoom web portal
      Users can now locate and open their local recordings from the Recordings tab of the Zoom web portal. This will automatically launch their Zoom desktop client.
    • Maximum meeting duration of 30 hours
      The maximum meeting duration has increased from 24 hours to 30 hours.
    • Zoom Room automatically becomes co-host
