Editing event details for Zoom Events

After you publish an event for Zoom Events, you have the opportunity to edit that event. Event creators can edit drafts and upcoming events. This feature is useful because you can update your event so your attendees always have up-to-date information.

This enables event organizers to publish events with minimal but necessary content—to provide exposure to the event as early as possible—while providing time behind the scenes so the event can build over time with more added information.
