Managing change history of conference events for Zoom

In Zoom Events, hosts are able to look through the history of changes made to their conference event and filter, sort, and search through them. In the conference event workflow, the change history allows Hosts to keep track of updates and edits we make in order to make it easier for them to review and manage the changes in their events. As a host, you have access to sort and filter the change history based upon the date/time, the date range, the editor name, and the step name.
