I must admit, it’s been a disappointing journey towards getting the app approved. It feels like Zoom wants to have complete control over what and how we do with our apps. This doesn’t feel like collaboration but more like dictating what developers should pursue.
My app was reject because it doesn’t have features beyond booking meetings at the moment and doesn’t add value to Zoom. What? So we can’t start with an MVP and integrate Zoom? The approver clearly failed to appreciate that feature improvements happen over a period of time and business strategies at times demand to push the product out the window as time is of essence to get started.
In addition, I have clearly resubmitted that if my application using the Beta terminology is against Zoom’s policy, or is a problem in approving the app for publishing, we are willing to do away with the tags. Those do not serve any major purpose beyond limiting user expectations - given the software is basic in nature and is being offered for free (only for the time being) - and to encourage users provide us feedback to help us further improve the features and add new ones.
This doesn’t mean we are in testing or are unprepared. We want the next phase to be driven by customer feedback.
This has clearly been overlooked by the approver.
So now I have to stay in the loop of resubmitting the app that would have otherwise taken a week at max. Pretty disappointing.
Is there anyone here - as mentioned in the rejection email - that I can communicate with?
@tommy: will you be able to help?
Update: I have taken off the word “beta” as it doesn’t serve much purpose to us and Zoom is confusing it to be a shortcoming.
