It’s a big problem for our client that launching a zoom webinar via the supplied “join_urls” necessitates a redirect to the zoom launch page away from their application. There are multiple mini-webinars to attend over the course of the day, and it’s important for the attendee to remain in place and logged into the client’s application, not least from a security perspective.
I’ve spoken with colleagues in the industry, and they all voiced the same frustration: being forced to leave the application we’re integrating with zoom webinars is a huge issue, and highly disorientating for the end-user.
I see there are URL schemes for Meetings - Zoom Client URL Schemes - Guides - Documentation. Can there please be a webinar equivalent? We have access to all the relevant Attendee data from the API, so we can even pre-authorise on behalf of the attended, and include an access token with the inbound link.
The default redirect page after the webinar finishes is also problematic: If the Zoom API provided the ability to customise it per attendee with query string parameters from the “cusom_questions” array, then at least we could redirect with intelligence and load that attendee’s data and put them back where they were in terms of state within our application
We’ve tried opening the “join_urls” feature in an iFrame, and that works well for browser on desktop. But mobile blocks this with with cross origin from the Zoom page’s JS library - we can’t get around it.
