July 2021: IM Dashboard enhancements Follow


On July 1st, Zoom will be introducing a newly re-designed IM Dashboard, our reporting tool that allows account administrators and owners to view account-usage metrics for Zoom Chat, our group messaging product. As our product and user base continues to grow and evolve, we are changing the way we measure and display data about Zoom Chat usage in the Dashboard. This means that the new Dashboard results will be based on more complete usage metrics for increased accuracy and granularity, along with an updated Dashboard interface.

This article provides a summary of the enhancements.
