"canned" or predefined text in chat


Is there a way, with Zoom features or app, to inject predefined text into chat as Host? Yes, I know I can copy and paste from a file but that can get tricky, especially while screen sharing, I've been looking for that ability for years, for things like welcome messages, posting links, etc. I had hopes from the announcement that AI Companion would do it, but no joy. If there is no way to do this, who else would like to see it added as a feature? Who else would be willing to buy a (reasonably priced) app to do this?

There are programs that let you map predefined responses such as Textpander that could help do what you are asking:


Collect your most commonly used emails, phrases, messages, URLs, and more to create snippets and templates in TextExpander that are always accessible with a quick search or abbreviation.

Expand the content you need with just a few keystrokes or inline search on any device, across any app you use — no APIs or integrations needed. 


Although this community forum is useful, the best way to get traction on an issue is through Zoom's official feedback process.
