Managing a hub's on-demand recordings

Last Updated:

A Zoom Events hub's on-demand recordings give event organizers the option to allow users to watch event recordings. On-demand recordings allow hosts and event organizers to view, publish, manage, and report recordings within your hub's library.

This also allows users to access recordings without an initial registration for the event, gives users who missed an event an option to view event recordings, and helps event organizers with knowledge sharing and content marketing. As a Zoom Events license holder, you can manage your on-demand recordings.

This article covers:
