Task: To host the Webinar


Step 1 - You will host the webinar event as you normally would either by logging into Zoom or by starting the webinar from Salesforce.​​​​​​​

  • There are no additional steps or actions needed on the day of the event. Because you've already synced the Zoom webinar in Salesforce it will push the attendance data from Zoom to Salesforce with any additional action/steps. As mentioned above, the sync to find contact records is on the email address, so Zoom attendees need to join with their same email they use in the Salesforce for it to capture their attendance. If they sign into your webinar only by phone, it will not match them to a contact record automatically.​​​​​​​
  • When students click the Join URL it will take them directly to your Zoom Webinar, and, will send their attendance back to Salesforce via the Zoom Webinar Attendee object.

Task: To review Webinar Attendance


Step 1 - Once the event has ended, all Zoom Webinar attendee information will sync back to Salesforce into the same Zoom Webinar object.  This can be found under the Related tab of the corresponding record you made earlier. ​​​​​​​

Step 2 - The Zoom Webinar History record will capture whether each attendee is a contact or a lead. Their is_Attendeed checkbox will be checked on their Details tab. If no contact was found, you can manually relate this record to a lead or contact by clicking the pencil next to either of those fields. When relating it to a contact or lead record it will add it to their contact record under the Zoom History related list.

When it finds the contact, it will lookup that contact's Contact Scheduled Item records to see if they have registered for an event where the Join URL from the Zoom Webinar matches a Zoom Link value on the event registration record. If the Zoom Webinar History record had a checkbox in the is_Attendeed box, it will check the Attended box on the event registration record (Contact Schedule Item) for that contact record. 


Step 3 - The Zoom Webinar Attendee record will capture each attendee and display their attendance statistics: Join Time, Leave Time, Duration (in seconds). If attendees leave and re-join the webinar they will have multiple Zoom Webinar Attendee records.

Task: To report off Webinar Attendance


Note: Attendance for Contacts on the Zoom Webinar object will update the Contact Schedule Item Attended field for the contact only if the Join URL matches the Zoom Link AND a student enters the webinar with the same email address on their contact record.
Step 1 - To report off your Zoom Webinar History in Salesforce, use the Contacts with Zoom Webinar History report type. 

Step 2 - To report off your Zoom Webinar History and Attendance in Salesforce, use the Zoom Webinars with Webinar History and Attendees. 



You have successfully reported off the Webinar Attendance.
