Release notes for Zoom Events

Changes to existing features

  • Networking profile and chat integration in expo
    There are several enhancements to integrate the networking profile card and networking chat experiences into expo. Attendees can hover over an avatar to display another participant’s networking profile card. The chat panel aligns with Zoom Events networking chat, which includes a chat list and chat channels. Previously, attendees created expo name tags and only had limited 1:1 expo chats.
  • Manage and Analytics sections in event creation flow
    Manage
    and Analytics sections are added to the conference event creation flow to provide a space for existing event controls, host analytics, and other event management information. Under the Manage section, hosts can control tickets, advanced options, lobby and expo chats, registrant management, event change history, moderation, and integrations in the new sub-tabs. Under the Analytics section, the hosts can access all Host Analytics Dashboard functionalities in the new sub-tabs. Previously, these functionalities lived in the individual event’s dropdown menu.
  • Remove Expo Chat data from the Host Analytics Dashboard
    Due to the new Zoom Events chat navigation feature, the existing Expo 1:1 chat will be removed from Zoom Events. Expo Chat data will be removed from the Host Analytics Dashboard and will be included in the overall networking/chat analytics.
  • Special role consolidation
    The primary speaker, speaker, alternative host, and panelist special roles will be consolidated into 2 roles: speaker and alternative host. Speakers can join an event as webinar panelists or meeting attendees and will have alternative host access by default. An event host can choose to disable a speaker's alternative host access on a per session basis. Alternative hosts can start a session without being part of the speaker list for the event. Each session is required to have one assigned person with alternative host access.
  • In-session speaker access controls
    The host or co-editor can configure a speaker’s access to an event. A host can configure if the speaker will appear on the Session Details page, speaker editing permissions for assigned sessions, and permission to start assigned sessions.

New and enhanced features

  • General features
    • Web browser support for Zoom Events
      Attendees, hosts, speakers, and other special roles can now join and experience Zoom Events from a web browser. This new feature includes a web-based Zoom Events experience. Additionally, participants can join expo from the event lobby on a web browser. The web browser support for expo gives users the same experience as they do on the Zoom desktop client. This also includes a web-based Sponsors tab where attendees can view expo sponsor information. Previously, Zoom Events was only available on the desktop client.
      Note: Web-based sessions and web-based expo are only available on desktop web browsers for attendees.
    • Audio transcription for Zoom Events recordings
      Users can now view audio transcription for post-event session recordings on a hub or an event organizer’s My Recordings page. Zoom Events audio transcription includes the following features:
      • Search and jump to a desired location in the transcript
      • View avatars to the left of each speaker name in the transcript
        Note: Audio transcription is not available yet for attendee recordings in the event lobby.
    • Refresh the Incidents table
      In the Moderation tab, there is now a Refresh button for the Incidents table. The Refresh button will indicate a new incident report, notifying the host or moderator that they can manually refresh the table for new reports. This functionality allows them to just refresh the table instead of refreshing the entire page. The Incidents table will also display a timestamp of when it was last updated.
  • Host features
    • Customizable sponsorship tier labels
      Event organizers can now rename sponsorship tier labels for their event. Zoom Events will provide the default tiers (Platinum, Gold, and Silver) that event organizers can rename as needed. Changes to sponsor tier names will be reflected in the event details page, the Sponsors tab (within the event lobby), and expo (if expo is enabled and only in non-spatial view).
    • Enhancements to registration management
      Hosts can now determine attendees’ tickets by viewing attendee ticket names and registration source in registration management. Hosts can also scroll horizontally to view all information on the registration management interface.
    • Include special-role attendance data in analytic reports and charts
      Hosts (and those with access to the Host Analytics Dashboard) can now view special role registration and attendance data in the Host Analytics Dashboard. Special role tickets and host/co-host attendance can be viewed in all the attendance reports, registration reports, and registration and attendance summaries. Previously, only the chat transcript and lobby attendance report included special role data.
    • Include Q&A and Poll summaries in the Engagement Summary
      The Host Analytics Dashboard (Analytics and Control) now displays high-level engagement summary from event attendees: such as chats (lobby, session, 1:1), survey and poll responses, Q&A interactions, reactions, and Raise Hands.
    • Enhancements to the Host Analytics Dashboard sorting functionality
      Hosts (and those with access to the Host Analytics Dashboard) can now sort data in each column in the Event Sessions, Event Expo, and Event Sponsors sections in the Host Analytics Dashboard. Data can be sorted in ascending or descending order.
    • Access-controlled ticket visibility (before registration)
      Hosts can control the visibility of a ticket option or restrict the availability of tickets. Hosts can set the ticket visibility rule to Public, which allows all attendees to view and register for the event associated with the ticket, or Private, which restricts visibility of the ticket to only the invitation list (invited attendees).
  • Event setup features
    • Speaker Portal (speaker landing page)
      Speakers have a landing page that allows them to easily access their assigned sessions. From the speaker landing page, speakers can edit their sessions, view their upcoming events, and view/edit their speaker bio. A Speaker indicator will appear on their assigned upcoming events.
      Note: If a speaker is invited to edit a session, and the event is still in the Draft state, the speaker will see the event as part of the event list on their Upcoming Events page.
    • Session durations for multiple time zones
      When a host creates an event across multiple time zones, the host will be able to create sessions that go beyond 11:59 PM to accommodate for time differences. Previously, hosts could only create sessions that ended at 11:45 PM.
    • Control expo livestream at the session level
      The host, sponsor representatives, sponsors, booth owners, and booth representatives now have the ability to enable or disable livestreaming at the expo booth session level. This feature allows them to start the session and turn on or off expo livestreaming for that meeting or session in their expo space. Previously, hosts controlled expo booth livestreaming from the Host Analytics Dashboard control panel. This feature requires client version 5.11.0 or higher.
  • Chat features
    • Web-based chat
      Zoom Events chat can now be accessed outside of the Zoom desktop client and mobile app, allowing for flexibility in developing new Zoom Events-specific chat formats.
    • Mobile web browser support for chat navigation
      Zoom Events users can participate in any chat regardless of where they are in the event. Attendees can easily participate in any chat using the navigation in the Chat panel on a mobile web browser. The mobile web browser provides chat navigation and usage for group and 1:1 chats in Zoom Events.
    • Display special role users at the top of chat lists
      All Zoom Events participants can view active chat users, special roles users, other attendees in chat. Participants can click the total number of users to view a list of all current active chat participants (up to 100). The top 5 users with special roles are displayed at the top of their public chat list first, followed by the most recent active participants. Roles are in priority order:
      1. Host
      2. Moderator
      3. Speaker
      4. Sponsor
      5. Exhibitor
      6. Interpreter
    • Differentiate users with special roles in chat
      In Zoom Events chat, special roles–hosts, speakers, sponsors, and moderators–will be differentiated with a displayed title and different colored text bubbles.
    • Chat load screen
      After users start chat and wait for it to load, a loading screen will appear, letting users know that the chat loading progress is happening. If a loading error occurs, users can click the Try again button.
    • Block/unblock other participants in group chats
      In group chats, attendees can selectively block and unblock other participants in group and expo chats. They can also report messages and users to the event organizer and moderator. The block list is available in the Zoom web portal or Zoom client settings.
  • Hub features
    • Change hub "Billing Information" to "Payments & Billing"
      The hub’s Billing Information tab–as well as the tab’s page header–is now renamed to Payments & Billing.
  • Meeting/Zoom Webinar integration features
    • Auto-complete emails from the same account
      When a host or a co-editor enters an email address–under the same account—into a field in the event creation flow, the email address will be auto-completed.
    • Speaker can bypass a waiting room when assigned to a session
      A speaker can bypass a meeting waiting room when they are assigned to a session and when Waiting Room is enabled for their meeting session.

Resolved issues

  • Minor bug fixes
  • Security enhancements
  • Resolved an issue where hosts could not reference a name entry in registration management with a corresponding attendee email, due to the anonymous behavior tied to the Zoom account.
