Managing the Change History tab

Last Updated:

Zoom Event Hosts can view, filter, sort, and search through their conference event’s change history. A conference event’s change history keeps track of updates and edits in the event workflow, making it easier for Hosts to review and manage their event’s edits. Hosts can sort and filter the change history by date/time, date range, editor name, and step name.

This article covers:
