  • How to edit a Zoom Events conference
  • When conference fields can be edited

Prerequisites for editing a Zoom Events conference

  • Zoom desktop client
    • Windows: 5.7.6 or higher
    • macOS: 5.7.6 or higher
  • Zoom mobile client
    • iOS: 5.7.6 or higher
    • Android: 5.7.6 or higher
  • Pro, Business, Enterprise, or Education account
  • Stripe or PayPal Business account is required to create paid events
  • Zoom Events license


  • The version 5.7.6 of Zoom Events does support Zoom Events, but it may cause a blank lobby environment for hosts due to a dependency with Windows’ Webview package for the Windows platform.
  • It is strongly recommended that hosts update to the most recent version of the Zoom desktop client/mobile application in order to be able to take advantage of the latest Zoom Events and Webinar features.

How to edit a Zoom Events conference

Zoom Events conferences can be edited by following these steps:

  1. Please sign in to Zoom Events in order to participate in the event.
  2. In the top-right corner of the screen, click the Manage button.
  3. On the left side of the screen, click on My Events from the navigation menu.
  4. Click on the Upcoming tab or the Drafts tab to see what is coming up.
    • Events that are scheduled to take place in the near future can be found under the upcoming tab.
    • In the Drafts tab, you will find all the events that have not yet been published.
  5. To edit a conference event, click the pencil icon to the right of the event you wish to change.

You will be able to access and view the history of the changes that have been made to a conference event after you edit it.

When conference fields can be edited


  • After an event has been published, you have the option of adding alternative hosts to a session. In order to save the new alternative host details, you must press Enter in the text box after you have entered the alternative host’s email address and then click Save in the Save dialog box. Upon completing the editing process and saving the changes to your event, a special-role ticket will be emailed to the alternate host, giving them a link to access the event.
  • During an event, event hosts can update the settings for live streaming and cloud recordings after tickets have sold out, after the event is live, and even while the event is still happening. As well as this, hosts can also enable settings for live streaming and recording for events that are currently being held but have not yet been published, after a ticket has been sold for that event.
