Hello, when I host a meeting, the Zoom toolbar has all the buttons visible for all the possible options (audio, video, security, participants, chat, share.... etc.)
However, I only us a few of these.
I don't need Summary, AI Companion, Polls, Whiteboards, Notes. I never use them, and they take real estate on the bar. How can I disable these buttons?
Having too many buttons just makes the UI busy and difficult to use
For example, when the window is small, the Breakout Rooms button is removed and goes into the More menu, requiring one extra click. But if I can remove the buttons I never use, then everything remains visible and immediately accessible.
I have not found any information on customizing the button bar. I just would like to select what to show in the button bar, and what to leave optional (maybe in the More menu).
Can anyone share any tips?
Or is this a new feature request for Zoom?
Need to do the same. Will never, ever, use the features vzanini mentioned in our meetings twice a week for those who cannot attend our in-person meetings. Not sure who is asking for these features, but if so, should be easily added or removed from the main menu. Now, with AI added pushing others away, I have 3+ features I use regularly that I need to find in the more menu each time. What a drag. Since we have many operators hosting the meeting, I need a conferencing tool anyone can step up to and operate. What was once simple is now overly complicated. The simplicity is what drew us to it in the first place.
I'm also looking for a way to either remove the items I don't use, or rearrange them so it's the stuff I don't use hidden in the "more" section. The toolbar is now visually busy, and I'm finding it awkward to get to the tools I actually need, both when I'm a host and when I'm a participant. It's particularly annoying that an accessibility tool like the captions is part of what gets hidden under "more"!
I'm another one who would like the Zoom button bar to be fully customisable. With each update, it's getting more and more cluttered with things that we don't want to access for our meetings and it's pushing the ones we do off the bar onto the ancillary three dots menu. I'm sure some simple on/off selection buttons in the account settings can't be beyond your tech guys! Clear and uncluttered is the way to go.
I completely agree. I use the Chat feature in every meeting and now I have to click the "More" button to see it (and take up space at the side of my screen)? My audience is generally not of the tech-savvy demographic and now I will have an even more difficult time engaging them. Sigh. I don't ever use any of those other features that have now taken the place of Chat on the menu bar. This is most unfortunate that Zoom cannot create a means by which end users can customize this tool bar so that frequently used icons are most accessible to both speaker and participants.
Many of my clients want to use Teams instead of Zoom, but I have insisted so far to use Zoom because of the simplicity, superior reliability and the breakout sessions that offer options Teams does not. Now the button is the last on the menu, hidden in the "more" option. How silly. If Zoom is further progressing down this road, it will lose its edge and I will have to change my mind. Sorry.
PLEASE SOMEONE AT ZOOM Many of us just use the basics, why cant we select the 5 or 6 that we really use on the zoom menu bar at the bottom of the screen. Just a small church glass and we have an all volunteer tech committee and this is getting way to complicated. Let us chose what we need Please.
I agree, accessing the meeting controls I use is difficult when they're hidden under "more", esp. break out rooms or chat. I have no need for AI, Apps, Whiteboard, Summary, Notes, at this time. Would be nice to be able to prioritize the controls for individual needs. It's hard to believe that Zoom has zero customer service, not even responding to Zoom Community posts. Hope they see this and upgrade the meeting controls bar.
