Renaming participants


Hello, is there a way to rename participants based on a pre-defined spreadsheet?

There is a group of helpers to ensure all participants rename themselves using a pattern appending their roles to the names.

The desired flow could be:

  1. Read the name of the participant
  2. If the naming convention is not followed, attempt find out the desired name from the spreadsheet.
  3. If the attempt above does not succeed, (i.e. some logs in with a name of "iphone" or "ipad"), prefixing with "000" because participants' names in the list are jumping up and down rapidly; helpers would need to manually fix the renaming

Would there be any API (or Zoom Apps) to help implement these? Thanks, Alan.

Hi Alan, 


 There is one in the Zoom Marketplace here that you might want to see if it will work for you. The host and co-host can rename participants in a meeting session, or you can ask the participants to change their display name on their Zoom profile before the meeting. 


I hope that this helps.
