Editing all events for Zoom Events

You have the option of editing an event after it has been published for Zoom Events as soon as it has been published. Drafts and upcoming events can be edited by event creators. With the help of this feature, you can update the information of your event so that your attendees are always aware of the most current details.

Moreover, this gives event creators the chance to create and publish events with the minimal amount of content needed – to provide as much exposure to the event as first as possible without sacrificing time behind the scenes to see things come together over time and the information that is added as time passes.

Zoom Event details that can be edited after publishing


  • After a ticket has been sold, once an event goes live, and even during an event, hosts will be able to update their settings for cloud recordings and live streaming. Furthermore, it is possible for hosts to enable live streaming and recording settings for published events that have not taken place yet after a ticket has been sold, if the event has not yet taken place.
  • As soon as the host has published a single-session event / a series of events / or conference event, they will be able to edit their event’s ticket details for any published event, regardless of whether it already has registered attendees. There are several fields where you can edit the Quantity, the Name of the Ticket, the Description, and the Registration Starts and Ends. Any updates you make to these fields will affect any future registrations. In addition, hosts are able to add guests to the guest list or remove them from it.
