Managing the single-session lite Event Configuration section

The single-session lite Event Configuration tab is where you can add the fundamental and descriptive details of the event. The required fields on this page must be completed to save the event as a draft.

Additionally, Zoom Sessions event organizers can view, filter, sort, and search through their event’s change history. An event’s change history keeps track of updates and edits in the event workflow, making it easier for hosts to review and manage their event’s edits. Hosts can sort and filter the change history by date/time, date range, editor name, and step name.
