Hello @bhs67,
My name is Brandon. Thanks for joining the Zoom Community! If you go into your profile page on a web browser, https://zoom.us/profile then click on the edit button. You can change the display name to whatever you choose. Then when you turn off your video in a Zoom meeting those words will show up as your display name.

I hope that helps.

For Toastmaster meetings, I want to temporarily post a Word for the Day"

The font size helps members understand.  Later,  I want to return to posting my name.  I'd like to easily select the phrase, or my name, quickly.

Hello @bhs67

 

Ok, if you go to the participants button while in a Zoom meeting > click on participants > go to your name > click more button > rename > you can change your display name quickly there and with your video disabled (off) it will dynamically change your display name on the screen to whatever context you would like. I hope that this is helpful.

Ok.  I made changes to the website Profile.  And I made different changes in Participants.  When I Stop Video, the Participant changes are displayed, not the website changes.
