Managing the Tickets tab

Last Updated:

The Tickets tab is where you will see the special role tickets that were automatically created as you added special roles to the event, in addition to adding your privacy policy and other ticket-related customizations.

For more information about the conference event creation process, please visit Creating a Zoom Events conference.


  • Ticket capacity is determined by your Zoom Events license.
  • After a conference event is published, the host can edit their event’s ticket details even if it already has registrants. The Quantity, Ticket Name, Description, Registration Starts/Ends fields are editable and will apply to future registration after they are updated. Additionally, hosts can add to or delete from the guest list.

How to manage pre-registration

Pre-Registration is upfront registration for both internal and external guests. This applies to only free events created in both public and private hubs. The host can pre-register guests by entering email addresses or importing a CSV file of email addresses.

Once the event is published:

  • Invited internal pre-registered guests will receive the join links in invitation emails.
  • Invited external pre-registered guests will receive an RSVP email with a Complete Registration link, which will open a webpage for external guests to complete the preregistration. Then, external attendees will receive a confirmation email with join links.
