Release notes for Zoom Events

Changes to existing features

  • Host features
    • Session-level and Speaker-level controls
      Hosts can manage individual conference event sessions and Speakers by enabling or disabling advanced settings at the session or Speaker level. The conference event creation workflow now has two new navigation tabs, the Sessions and Speakers tabs, which will replace the Agenda tab.
      • Session-level controls and settings are now located in the Sessions tab of the event.
      • Speaker-level controls and settings are now located in the Speakers tab of the event.
    • Change cloud recording and live streaming settings for live events
      Hosts can update cloud recordings and live streaming settings after a ticket has sold, after an event goes live, and during an event. Previously, Hosts could only set cloud recordings and live streaming settings before the event started.
    • Organizer Mode/Attendee Mode
      Users with a Zoom Events license can switch between Organizer Mode and Attendee Mode. Organizer Mode only includes event creation, event management, Hub management, and the Host profile functionality. Zoom Events-licensed users can switch to Attendee Mode to attend Zoom Events, access their tickets, view favorite events, and discover other Hubs.
  • General features
    • Pause and resume Expo
      Event organizers can pause and resume Expo—without having to completely delete Expo from their event—by enabling or disabling Expo from the control panel.
    • Event summary charts and survey results relocated to Analytics & Control
      Event summary charts and survey results are now located on a conference event’s Analytics & Control page. Additionally, survey results are now located in the new Survey tab. Previously, event summary charts and survey results were located on the Manage Registration page.
  • Attendee features
    • Attendee Mode
      Attendee Mode
      only includes Attendee-specific functionalities. Attendees can only access their favorite events, tickets, and Hubs.

New and enhanced features

  • General features
  • Host features
    • Support for Pre-registration (internal-facing events only)
      Hosts can pre-register users from their Zoom account by directly sending them emails with event join links when publishing a conference. Pre-registration eliminates the need for Attendees to register before joining a Zoom Event.
    • Export Expo Attendance by Sponsor report
      Event organizers now have the ability to provide reports on sponsored booths’ performances by using the Host Analytics Dashboard to export the Expo Attendance by Sponsor CSV report.
    • Export registrant management report
      Hosts can now download a CSV file of registrant metrics from the Manage Registration page, if registrants opt in to share their information.
    • Registration management support for direct join link Speakers
      On the Manage Registration page, Hosts can now view, sort, and filter Speakers who were invited to an event by a direct join link. Hosts can also resend direct-join invitations to these Speakers. The Speakers’ registration status will display as Direct-join.
    • Enhancements to Registrant and Session Attendance reports
      There are several enhancements to improve the experience of specifying registrant attendance metrics at the session, event, and conference lobby level.
    • Host can delete recordings before lobby closes
      The Host can delete conference event recordings before their conference lobby closes. Previously, Hosts could not delete a conference event’s recording before the lobby closed.
  • Event setup features
    • Disabled chat notification
      If an account admin has disabled Zoom Chat for the Host creating an event, the Host will receive a disabled chat notification about their web portal chat settings and how it will affect their event. Previously, in the event creation flow, there were no notifications or error messages that informed the Host that they could not enable their event’s chat feature.
    • Display session preview while Speaker is editing
      While a Speaker edits their session, they have the ability to preview their updates on their session details page.
  • Attendee features
    • Enhancements to registration flow for free and paid events
      There are several enhancements to make the registration flow for free and paid Zoom Events more efficient. Each registrant will have a streamlined registration flow, which depends on if they are internal/external registrants and if the event has custom questions.
    • Support for Pre-registration (internal-facing events only)
      Pre-registered Attendees will receive an invitation email from the Host with an event join link and can use the email to:
      • Add the event to a calendar
      • View event details
      • Join the event
  • Hub features
    • Enhancements to Attendees’ information architecture
      There are several enhancements to improve the Hub experience to provide an organized browsing experience for Attendees. After Attendees (users without a Zoom Events license) sign in, they will land on the default Hub event listing page, if specified by the Hub Owner, or on the Tickets page, if no default Hub event listing page is specified.
    • Enhancements to event organizers’ information architecture
      There are several enhancements to improve the Hub experience to provide a more manageable event listing directory for event organizers, Hub Owners, and Hub Managers. After a user with a Zoom Events license signs in, they will use Organizer Mode and land on the Manage page. They can also switch to Attendee Mode to browse upcoming events.
    • Separate Hub public event listing directory page from event publishing flow
      Hub Owners and Hub Managers can choose to list or unlist created events to their Hub’s public event listing page. Additionally, in the Hub’s Settings page, the event organizer can choose to Auto List Events, which automatically lists all the events created in the Hub on the Attendee-facing event listing directory.
    • Hub Profile video limit change
      The video upload attempt limit is now increased for the Hub profile page. Hub Owners and Hub Managers can upload up to 100 videos every 30 days. Previously, the Hub Owner and Hub Manager previously could only attempt to upload 2 videos total. The Hub Profile can only host one video at a time.
    • Report Hub button relocation
      The Report Hub button is now located below the content on the Hub profile page. Previously, it was located at the top of the Hub profile page.

Resolved issues

  • Minor bug fixes
  • Resolved an issue where the content library’s moderation notifications were displayed incorrectly in the Zoom Events platform.
  • Resolved an issue where the moderation error message was displayed after users reached the video upload limit.
