Zoom Pronouns for Zoom Chat?

JoshN76
Listener

Our company is considering turning on the Zoom Pronouns feature so our employees can add pronouns to their zoom meetings and zoom profiles.  Our company uses the zoom chat feature a lot as well, but it doesn't appear the zoom pronoun feature has the option of adding pronouns within the chat functionality.  We are currently using a custom workaround where you edit your zoom name and add the pronouns to the end of your name.

 

If there is a way to add your pronouns to zoom chat, please let me know.

Hi @JoshN76! Welcome to the Zoom Community, we're happy that you're here 😊

When users add their pronouns in their account settings, it will show up during meetings and webinars as well as display underneath their name on Zoom Chat. Here are two helpful articles that walk you through how to add pronouns:

Hi @JoshN76 


While @crchan123 is correct that their pronouns can be accessed via Zoom Chat, this is only visible when hovering over a name and viewing their Profile card. That being said, it sounds like a great idea to also have the ability to display their pronouns next to their name as well! I encourage you to visit our Zoom Feedback form, which is the official way to share any feedback or feature requests with the Zoom team.

 

Thanks!

@Bort Thanks for the suggestion! A lot of our employees added their pronouns to their name, so it shows up in the chat window which is really nice.  We're debating whether we want to keep it as is for now, or go with the zoom pronoun feature and be able to toggle pronouns for meetings and such. Thanks again!

Did you means caption system? As your clients or zoom participants said and it will show caption on screen. 

Thanks for the comment @lauralcee . I think what you're referring to is different from what we're looking for. Essentially we want to be able to quickly identify and see pronouns within the zoom chat functionality without having to hover over their profile card.  Screenshot attached of our current workaround.
