Idea: BRB Status

Regularly, people say "BRB" and then have to write "Ok Back", especially if video is off.  Would be helpful to just have a "BRB" status you can flip on that shows in the participants pane and the video window that you can turn off when you are back.  Bonus points for adding a custom message, like "BRB - 5 min" or "BRB - grabbing a glass of water"

Sounds like you need something similar to this super cool new "I'm away" feature 😎 :   https://twitter.com/Zoom/status/1442890697934135308?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5E...

@alexisbrown @jb12 I wonder whether this is also dependent on the account/meeting being enabled for "Non-verbal feedback" or "Meeting reactions"

Hi @jb12 

 

The Zoom app itself (your zoom profile) has something like that (Status and Note) for use between Contacts, but I don't think it translates into an actual status seen within a Meeting when in progress.

 

That would be a good idea.

 

Be sure to submit it at https://zoom.us/feed

Ok, will do!  Yeah, I'm specifically referring to an in-meeting status (just for that meeting).  Thanks!

Yes that would work I think!  When is that going live? (I don't see it in latest update)

It should be available now in your latest Zoom version 🤔

Don't see it in Version: 5.8.0 (1780)

I am on version 5.8.0 (1324). Does your app say you are on the latest version?

Yes says "you are up to date"
