How to join an event

Here are a few things to keep in mind when joining Zoom Events: 

  • Every ticket creates a unique URL that is linked to your account. Other users will not be able to join the event using your link.
  • Joining audio by Zoom Phone or dial-in is not supported.
  • If the event you are joining is being recorded, you will have to provide consent to being recorded to join the event.
  • When registrants are signed in to their Zoom desktop client (with integrated calendars) with credentials different than their Zoom Event 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 Zoom Event registration will see a Join button.
  • Registrants will be notified if it is too early to join the event.
  • Registrants will be notified if it is too late to join the event. 
  • Registrants can join or bookmark an event from the session detail view.
  • Registrants will receive an introductory message when the itinerary is opened. Zoom Event users can follow the link to open the session page.
