Viewing participant profile cards in meetings

Last Updated:

If enabled by an admin, you can view other participants’ profile cards while you’re in a Zoom meeting. Profile cards can show you important profile information about other participants in the meeting, such as their title, local time, working location, and personal note.

Note: You can’t view profile cards for unregistered users in the meeting.

Prerequisites for viewing profile cards for other meeting participants

How to view a profile card in a Zoom meeting

Viewing profile cards for contacts

If you already have a meeting participant as a contact, you can easily view their profile card.

  1. In a Zoom meeting, hover over the video or avatar of a participant.
  2. Click View Profile.
    The participant’s profile card will appear in the right panel of the meeting window.

Viewing profile cards for external participants

While you can’t view profile cards for anyone you’re not contacts with, you can choose to connect with them first so that you can view their profile cards.

  1. In a Zoom meeting, hover over the video or avatar of a participant.
  2. Click View Profile.
    The participant’s profile card will appear in the right panel of the meeting window, but will be displayed with just their display name. 
  3. Click Add Contact to send a contact request to them. 
    Once they accept, their full profile will be shown. 

How to ensure your profile card has helpful information for other participants

Update your Zoom profile to help meeting participants understand key information when connecting with you. When populated, these fields appear in your profile card on Zoom Chat and in Zoom Meetings.
