HATE the latest website updated


I saw that Zoom recently revised the page for creating new meetings - page has always had a nice look & feel, but recent (unneeded, I'd guess) changes, at least 1 which seems like it was make "just because we could" have made my meeting setups a bit harder.

I setup regular meetings for 12-step groups, and until recently, it's been a breeze.  The meeting title, like almost all text boxes on web pages, "remembers" the last few entries, I select one that's close and just change the date - good to go!  Then, I'd just scroll down and select "allow participants to join anytime", since sometimes members would sign on before the host.

NOW - The text box for meeting title no longer remembers latest entries (my guess is they either made their own control , which doesn't support history, or they deliberately disabled history... why???).  Now I have to keep a .txt file with the subjects so I can copy n' paste/edit, rather than re-type it every time (it's important that the title follow a consistent style)

THEN - scroll down to the bottom, and .... the "allow participants...." option is GONE!  ... wait - there's a "show" / "hide" option - now I have to click that to see what I've always seen before.  Now, this is actually a good option to have - when you need it - generally if the options are long and it make the rest of the page harder to get to since you have to scroll past it - NEITHER of which applies here - there's only FOUR options, and they're at the BOTTOM of the page - why do we need to hide them???  One extra click seems petty, but I work on public facing websites, and this is website 101 rules being ignored, and the MOST common complaint I get from users of my websites is, "now I HAVE to make this extra click to do what I wanted to do" - remember - what the designer/programmer/managers all feel is INVALID if the users find the results to detract from the UX (user experience).

I looks like times I've seen web programmers "improving" a site based on their own ideas ("hey look, I could put a 'hide/show' option here!" - [whether it needs it or not]l), rather than the feedback from the community.

Obviously, I could be wrong about all of this, however I'd like to see the comments calling for removing text box history and imposing a 'hide/show' option for 4 options at the bottom of the screen - ???


Note Taker

If your meetings always use the same names and descriptions, you could create templates to save yourself some time. Here is how they work

Thanks very much for the timely response, I will definitely look into setting up templates.


I think you can make a template for your self which helps you to use it more smoothly lets visit here and learn about it more.
