Release notes for Zoom Events

Changes to existing features

  • Publication of event with minimal content
    Only the Basic Information tab needs to be completed to publish an event.
  • Invite co-editors throughout event creation
    Hosts can now add or invite co-editors at any step during the event creation process. An Invite Editors button is available in every tab of the event creation flow; hosts can save their added/invited editors when they republish their event. Previously, hosts could only add co-editors in the event creation Basic Info tab and adding co-editors was not part of the republish process.
  • Remove "Allow Participants to Unmute themselves" setting for Zoom Events
    The setting, Allow Participants to Unmute themselves, will be deprecated and removed from the platform.

New and enhanced features

  • General features
    • Distinguish Zoom Events page names
      The Zoom Events page titles are distinguished when they are indexed on a search engine. Each page’s path will display a unique title so users can easily identify a page.
    • Display interpreters on session cards
      When a session has assigned language interpreters, the session information card displays a Live Interpreters label and the supported languages.
  • Host features
    • Hide or display bookmarked session numbers
      Hosts can now choose whether to show or hide the number of users who bookmarked a session in the conference lobby Sessions tab.
    • Hide or display sponsorship tier labels
      Hosts can choose to display or hide sponsorship tier labels from attendee view on the event details page, event lobby Sponsors tab, and the expo non-spatial view.
    • Separate poll edits from event edit submissions
      When a speaker submits session and poll edits, the host can separately review (as well as separately approve or reject) the session edits and the poll edits. The approval process for session edits and poll edits are split into two separate approvals by the host.
    • Control special role access to events
      Hosts can now control attendee permissions for all special roles (except for moderators) by granting all attendee permissions, revoking attendee permissions, or pre-registering special roles for a specific ticket. Previously all special roles had access to all sessions in the event.
    • Manage when to publish session recordings in the lobby
      Hosts can control when they publish and display session recordings to the event lobby by enabling the Published toggle. Previously, the recordings were automatically published in the lobby as soon as they were available; hosts could not control this behavior.
  • Event setup features
    • Enhancements to Pre-registration
      There are several enhancements for the pre-registration process for events. Hosts can control whether pre-registered guests will receive a join link or require registration and disable email notifications, and attendees who receive a join link can join the lobby and receive the terms of use. Hosts can also do the following actions:
      • Bulk-upload external tickets and registrations, providing support for customers that register off the Zoom Events platform (other ticketing or manual registration lists)
      • Generate 2 different email templates to attendees
      • Add or delete pre-registered attendees
      • Extract registration or join links from registration management
    • Rich text editing for description fields
      Hosts can personalize their events through branding elements, using a rich text editor for description fields in the event creation flow. The rich text editor allows hosts to edit text for event content (session description, booth description, speaker biography, sponsor description, and so on).
  • Attendee features
    • Audio transcription for Zoom Events recordings
      When enabled by hosts, attendees can view post-event session recordings on a fullscreen playback page from the conference event lobby, along with audio transcription. 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
      • Option to play highlights only
    • Highlight audio transcription for recordings
      When watching recordings, yellow highlights will appear on the recording’s progress bar. These highlights will display the same highlights as the audio transcription highlights. When Only play highlights is enabled, the recording player will jump directly to the first highlight (instead of playing from the beginning of the recording) and will continue to play only highlighted sections.
    • Audio transcription auto-scroll
      When attendees jump to a different location in the audio transcript while watching a recording, the Resume Transcript Auto-Scroll button will appear. Attendees can click this button to automatically adjust the audio transcript to sync with the current video playback.
    • Mobile and tablet web support for expo Sponsors tab
      A web-based Sponsors tab experience on mobile web and tablet web is now available for attendees. In the mobile-based Sponsors tab, attendees can view expo sponsor information in portrait or landscape mode.
  • Networking features
    • Networking for mobile browser
      Users can view their own profile card and set their networking mode when attending a Zoom Event from their mobile browser, in addition to initiating 1:1 chats and sending connection requests to other users.
  • Chat features
    • View active participants in chat
      Zoom Events users can now easily view and find active participants in their lobby or session chat. This feature is limited to active chat participants only (people who actually sent messages in chat) and to the 100 last active people (maximum).
  • Analytics features
    • 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.
    • Download reports on live session viewers and viewing duration in the Analytics Sessions tab
      Hosts can now see the specific session livestreaming (in lobby) that attendees viewed and the viewing duration from the Event Attendance Detail and Session Attendance CSV reports.
      Note: This feature only applies to new livestreams and recordings. It will not retroactively give data for livestreams and recording from older events.
    • Structure expo analytics data around booth data
      The Host Analytics Dashboard Expo tab now structures all data around booth data instead of sponsor data so that hosts can view and download both non-sponsored and sponsored booth data. The Event Expo CSV will display data for both sponsored and non-sponsored booths. The Expo Attendance by Sponsor CSV file is renamed to Expo Attendance by Booth; the Attendance by Sponsors pop-up window is renamed to Attendance by Booth and will display a list of booths instead of sponsors. Previously, the Expo tab data was structured around sponsors instead of booths, leaving out non-sponsored booth data.
  • Ticketing features
    • License usage information and bulk quantity updates to ticket modifications
      In the Tickets tab of the event creation flow, hosts can view their license limits and usage and number of sold tickets. Hosts also have ticket quantity controls and can edit their quantity of tickets for their event. Hosts can make batch changes to the ticket quantity by modifying all ticket quantities and saving them at one time (which validates against licensing rules).
    • Access control for tickets for hosts
      Tracks are removed as a dependency for ticket creation. By default, tickets will have access to all sessions in the event. For multi-session events, hosts can restrict the sessions that each ticket has access to. Hosts can define ticket access before they open registration or update permissions for each ticket for their event.
    • Ticket access for attendees
      When attendees order tickets, they can now view the ticket description. Attendees can only register for a ticket once but will be allowed to register for other tickets in the event; the previous tracks restriction will no longer be applicable. When they register for multiple tickets, they can join sessions included in the tickets.
  • Integration features
    • Send event registration and attendance information to Pardot
      Event organizers can send registration field data, registrations, and attendance data to Pardot.

Resolved issues

  • Minor bug fixes
  • Resolved an issue where a removed attendee could still view an event on their personal calendar or upcoming meetings list after an event host or chat moderator removed them from that event.
  • Resolved an issue where hosts couldn’t reference a name entry in registrant management against the attendee email because anonymous behavior was tied to the Zoom account.
  • Resolved an issue where the majority of the Host Analytics Dashboard CSV files were refreshed every 4 hours instead of updating closer to the current time (for accurate reporting).
