Managing Zoom Phone asset library as an admin

Last Updated:

Admins can add their company-approved audio content to the asset library. The asset library allows you to create from a text-to-speech, record from your computer, and upload audio files such as greetings, audio while connecting, and music on hold, to a centralized location. The library provides better management of those files by categorizing them when searching for a specific file. Admins can view, download, and use each file in the library, however, permissions should be explicitly granted for editing and deleting those files. Admin can also allow users to manage their own audio content.
