Profile cards in Zoom Meetings and Team Chat
Some of a user's profile information is provided in their profile card, providing others with important profile information about others in the meeting, such as their title, local time, working location, and personal note. Profile cards can be viewed for other participants in a meeting, or for a fellow member of a group chat or channel in Team Chat. Viewing profile cards outside of a meeting provides options to quickly start a 1:1 chat, start a Zoom Meeting with that contact, send an SMS, or call them with Zoom Phone.
Note: You can’t view profile cards for unauthenticated users in a meeting.
