I’m wondering if there is a comprehensive list of rules for when a registrant’s name appears vs the name of the user that has entered the call shows up.
For example, I set up several meetings where I gave the participants names “Caller1, Caller2, etc…” When users join with the link, the name I give them displays in the participant list, regardless of whether they are logged into their Zoom account or not. However, when the user is logged into their account AND they manually enter the Meeting ID into the app, their username shows up instead of the name I gave them.
I’m mostly curious because this breaks a workaround I had for identifying participants after experiencing the issue here. Is there any way I can lock the participants to the registrant name I assign them?
Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?
Participant Joined Webhook
How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
- Book a meeting
- Add several registrants to the meeting
- Sign in to some Zoom account that is not a meeting registrant
- Join by clicking the join link for one of the registrants - the registrant name should appear in the participant list
- Leave the meeting
- Join by manually entering the Meeting ID into your desktop Zoom application - your username should appear in the participant list
