Changes to existing features

  • Scheduling paid events
    Hosts that have Stripe enabled as their payment provider and a billing address in the U.S. can schedule and hold paid events up to 12 months after publishing.
  • OnZoom registration and Zoom desktop client credentials detection
    When registrants with calendars integrated into their Zoom desktop client are signed in to the client with credentials different than their OnZoom registration credentials, they will see a View Event option. Only users signed in to the Zoom desktop client with the same credentials that are used for OnZoom registration will see a Join button.

New and enhanced features

  • Simplify registration process for free and paid OnZoom events
    Attendees’ registration process for free and paid events is now simplified and consolidated.

  • Refund confirmation
    Hosts will now receive an email confirmation or in-app notification if their refund to Attendees is processed successfully. Previously, Hosts were not notified by email confirmations and in-app notifications for a successful refund.
  • Canceling an event
    Hosts can cancel a live event from the Events page resulting in sessions ending immediately and the canceled event being removed from the web portal.

    Additionally, Attendees will see a message that the event was canceled followed by receiving an email notifying them that the event has been canceled and receiving a full refund if the canceled event was a paid event.
