  • Simple user experience--very intuitive for attendees to join, interact with Q&A
  • Adaptable and feature rich--very easy to set up Webinars for different use cases with features like registration, Q&A, practice session, HQ video, branding and virtual backgrounds, polls/quizzes, post-surveys, breakouts, resources, production studio, FB/YT Live, captions/translation, etc
  • Aesthetically pleasing--new branding options (such as webinar wallpaper, custom backgrounds, and name tags), plus the recent addition of the Production Studio feature, means it's easier than ever to produce beautiful and appealing webinars.
  • Panelists, practice session, and backstage--Zoom makes it easy to set up webinar panelists ahead of time, and get them into the room early for a practice session. The new backstage option is even more powerful than the practice session feature.
  • The bleeding edge--Zoom is continually adding powerful new features for Webinar rooms, where other programs leave you with the same ol' stagnant feature set.
  • I wish there were more polling options available in Zoom in general, and this extends to both webinar polling and post-webinar surveys. Could certainly do with a more robust polling feature set.
  • Setting up Registration for Zoom webinars can be very tricky, and I usually advise against webinar registration. The fact that users have to manually download an .ics to add it to their O365 calendars after registering means lots of issues with users attempting to join after registering early.
  • I would have complained about lack of breakout rooms for webinars, or the fact that the practice room can't be turned back on after it was turned off, but Zoom recently implemented webinar breakout rooms plus the Backstage feature, so both of these common complaints are now fully addressed!

  • Ease of webinar setup
  • Webinar templates
  • Reporting
  • Collaboration Tools
  • I will we could add registration disclaimer language to the Webinar templates.
  • Some of the customization and setup features are difficult to find.
  • I would like to add someone to help me run webinars without paying for them to have their own webinar platform. We should be able to buy one platform and both of us log into it and setup and run webinars from it.

  • Very quick and easy to set up a multi-day/concurrent session event
  • Assign host/alt host permissions for speakers and support staff to start and run their own sessions

  • Simulive for automatically playing out pre-recorded content as if live.
  • Production Studio for more professional looking productions
  • Option to automatically move participants to next session
  • Broadcast message to concurrent sessions (breakout room like functionality)
  • Improved Expo and Networking functionality (they are a bit basic now)

  • Easy data entry using imported CSV files
  • Full speaker and session images and text, with individual itineraries for attendees.
  • Duplicate the structure and format of an existing event for your next event, or create an event template to easily replicate future events
  • Automated language caption translation on-the-fly for a growing list of languages
  • Like most Zoom products, Zoom Events is actively being improved and updated. The release cycle is monthly, which means event planners need to keep up with changes.
  • While Zoom Events also works for in-person only events, this will require a certain mind-set shift to work well for many organizations.
  • There is a core group of small business Zoom Events users who can provide help to new-comers, and an increasing number of helpful on-boarding resources, but Zoom Tier 1 support still starts out with the most pedantic questions; it's difficult to reach someone who can really help you with a difficult problem if you are not a large Zoom customer.
  • Professional Services is available from Zoom, but it the cost is out of reach of most small businesses and non-profit organizations.

Zoom for Events

  • Zoom rooms are particularly helpful especially in breakouts and allowing event attendees to get to know one another
  • Zoom is easy to use when I need to record an event or presentation so that I can share and engage with donor and friends who cannot attend
  • Presenting via zoom is easy to use for myself and for guest speakers even those who are not as tech savvy
  • While I like the zoom rooms sometimes there have been delays in starting them leading to confusion with attendees - this may be a connection issue rather than a product issue but wanted to mention it
  • Zoom does tend to get more glitchy then other platforms I have used - especially when presenting my screen or sharing a video. Not sure why.

  • For the purpose of voice recording and onboarding new employees, this works well.
  • It is simple to use and has a pleasing appearance.
  • It is a fantastic tool for recording and archiving critical recordings.
  • It could be easier to share documents at a meeting.
  • If this is your first time attending a Zoom webcast, please arrive five minutes early. It might take some time to get there.

  • The screen sharing feature
  • Recording of meetings
  • Providing breakup room
  • Admin controls.
  • Chat option
  • Sometimes irrelevant background noise creates disturbances that need to be identified and auto mute them
  • Identifying spamming messages on chat option and providing admin to block or remove
  • When having large participants presentation screen to users ratio should be properly adjustable
  • It is also prone to cyber-attack like we fear having a sensitive discussion which is crucial to the organization, so if zoom provides a highly secure connection at premium charges, it will be highly appreciated

  • The ease of using other apps while on a zoom video call
  • The ability to disable audio during the call so that it can be used on another app
  • [A] simple way to chat within the group to all audience[s] or a particular user
  • Ease of scrolling through the videos of participants as well [as] the participant's list
  • The chat room can enable the option of sending a broadcast to participants on the meeting without sending [it] to all
  • A participant can be on hold on a meeting instead of leaving the meeting and returning
  • Noise reduction if possible for background noise from some participants

  • Recording : Recordings done by Zoom are high quality and are in very small size. This makes recordings portable and also Zoom provides direct Live on YouTube feature.
  • UI : The user interface of Zoom is very easy and simple. The options are well stacked and enlarged so one can understand them. Scheduling, sharing, starting a meeting is [not] rocket science in Zoom.
  • Presentation : With zoom one can easily present the screen or any particular document. It has annotation tools which is very useful while teaching online.
  • One Click Join : With this anyone can join the Zoom meeting links with just one click. No sign up required, no wastage of time.
  • Limitation for BASIC User : Zoom currently have 100 participants limit and 45 minute meeting limit for Basic users but I think it must have to be increased in order to have a more brief look over its working
  • Cloud Storage For Basic User : Zoom doesn't provide any cloud storage for your recordings for Basic Users, while MS Teams does, and I think that where zoom can make improvements.
  • Video Presentation : Zoom lacks performance at the time of video presentation. Video lags at the time of presentation.

  • Zoom is platform agnostic. It's easy for anyone with a phone or device to attend a webinar.
  • Zoom doesn't require downloading or signing up for software. Users can click through the provided URLs and are immediately in the webinar space.
  • Zoom provides direct access to meetings. Some of the platforms we sampled required attendees to "appear" in a waiting room and be approved by the host. This complicated matters when the host is trying to "host" the webinar and approve people. We love that with Zoom people can pop in, drop out, and come back any time during the presentation and discussion.
  • I would love to see the ability to change recording features. For example, when we record a webinar, it captures whomever is speaking/presenting. I would love the option to set the video record parameters to capture other elements, including chat and discussion.
  • I would love to see Zoom embed a video editing component to their offerings. Currently, we download the webinar recording, import it into a video-editing software, and then place introduction and conclusion elements. Why can't I just do this straight into Zoom. Maybe they can partner with Microsoft or Adobe Photoshop Elements to easily feature drop-and-drag video editing. This would enable users to brand webinars inside the platform.

  • For news interview purposes Zoom has been amazing. Better than Skype even. Once it is installed into a device, no one has issues.
  • For voice recording and onboarding new staff. It is easy to use and has an attractive look.
  • The price is great for individuals but has heard complaints within the company about how the price does not make sense considering how little we use it.
  • Time limitations for meetings have made it a little difficult to work with especially with users in the company who are long-winded. It might be something on my end where I am not figuring out how the program works.
