In webinars and meetings with registrations, hosts can review and manage their registrants before the webinar or meeting starts. This way they can ensure that unwanted guests are not let into the meeting, they can gauge how many participants will likely attend, and they can prepare for what is to come. By using a manual approval process, they can grant or deny registrants, revoke all approved registrations, or even send an email confirmation to registrants again.
Prerequisites for managing registrants
- Registration is required to attend a meeting that has been scheduled
- for registration is required to attend a webinar that has been scheduled
How to manually approve or deny registrants
If registrations are manually approved, each registrant will need to be approved or denied by the host.
- Log into Zoom’s web portal by entering your email address and password.
- Click on the Meetings or Webinars tab in the left-hand navigation menu.
- Select the topic you would like to change in relation to the scheduled session you wish to edit.
- Choosing the invitation tab (for webinars) or the registration tab (for meetings) will open the emails you received.
- You can find the Manage Attendees section on the right-hand side (Webinars) and the Manage Registrants section (Meetings) by clicking Edit or View on the left hand side. If you click the link below, you will see a list of those who have registered for the event. If you choose to use the following options, there will be three categories for you to choose from: pending approval, approved, and denied/blocked.
- When you click on the Pending Approval tab, you will see the list of unapproved registrants and will be able to read their registration details. Once you have read their registration details, you can either approve or deny their registration.
- In order to approve or deny registrants in bulk, you need to select a number of registrants, then click on either the Approve or Deny button to conduct the process.

The host can correct the information in their own records after the report has been downloaded if the participant entered incorrect information during registration. If the participant entered incorrect information during registration, they may need to register again with the correct information.
Resending and accessing confirmation emails
In the event that a registrant has been approved, Zoom will send them a confirmation email (unless the host has disabled this) which contains their unique join link and other relevant information to facilitate their participation in the event. A Zoom host is able to access anyone’s email who has not received their email, either to copy the information and send it with the help of another service, or to send that email again with the help of Zoom.
