Thank you for your help

Hi @emailnotificationled ,

We do not supply this information, but here’s a roundabout that some developers have implemented: How to hook 'camera on' event (or other ways to track camera-on time) - #5 by nickax

Hope that helps!

Hi everyone,

I’m looking for a way to get a report of the time the users have their cameras on.

I found this topic after having found the one you mention as the one where the “solution” is (How to hook 'camera on' event (or other ways to track camera-on time)) and I wanted to ask, is that workaround suggested by @nickax still the way to go or is there another “more official” way?

Having said that, do you know if there’s a way to visualize cameras on / off within Zoom reports? I found this → but you only get to see data such as joining time, leaving time, recording consents, etc, no “camera on time”, “Did they turn the camera on?” or something related.

The other alternative I was considering is using an app from marketplace that provides that info I need. But I was looking and no luck so far.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Juampi ,

That is the best way as far as I know with QoS or QSS (streaming data) and tracking the changes in camera fields to decipher camera-on time. Here’s a more detailed thread on this:
