"Need to Know" Items for Zoom Webinar Connection

After creating this Tool, if you reschedule this webinar in Zoom then you must remove this tool and start over for it to function properly. Deleting this tool will not remove those who previously registered. Existing registrants will remain registered for this webinar

This field map will be used in both directions. When PlusThis is used to register a record for the webinar, it will use the data (as mapped below) from your CRM to perform the webinar registration with Zoom.

When PlusThis pulls the attendance data for the webinar, the map will use the data (as mapped below) from Zoom to update/create contact records in your CRM. 

PlusThis will only map first name, last name, and email.

PlusThis lists all occurrences for each recurring webinar. Zoom’s API doesn’t allow PlusThis to differentiate between the different registration options for recurring webinars. If you select a recurring webinar that the attendees register once and can attend any of the occurrences, then PlusThis will automatically register your contact for all of the occurrences for that recurring webinar. Otherwise, they will only be registered for the webinar occurrence selected.

When PlusThis pulls attendee data for recurring webinars, Zoom’s API only provides attendee data for the most recently completed webinar occurrence. If recurring webinar occurrences are scheduled back to back, this limitation with Zoom’s API may cause attendee data from a more recent occurrence to be tagged with the Track Who Attended tags configured in this feature.

PlusThis depends on your webinar's scheduled start and end times. We recommend that you start your webinar no sooner than 30 minutes before its scheduled start time and end the webinar no later than 30 minutes after the scheduled end time. Also, PlusThis will attempt to push your attendee data to your CRM 15 minutes after your webinar's scheduled end time. If your webinar runs late (after the scheduled end time), PlusThis will check back every 15 minutes until your webinar is finished, before pushing data to your CRM.

Do not require additional registration fields, or PlusThis will not be able to register contacts. Zoom does not tell PlusThis which fields your registration requires. You may ask for additional registration fields as long as they are not required.
