Zoom allows organizations to control certain aspects of the conferencing UX, applying colors, typography, logos, background and more to completely brand the experience of joining a corporate conference call. I’ve had a few requests to do this, so I thought an explanation on how it’s done may be helpful.
A live example can be seen at laudio.zoom.us, which is a Zoom branding project I handled for laudio.com.
Access to Branding
To get started you’ll need Administrator level access to the organizations Zoom account in order to access the Branding section of the ADMIN.
Once you have access you can:
- Login at the organization’s custom URL, or at zoom.us
- Under the ADMIN menu click Advanced, then Branding
- Begin adding customizations
Once you have access you’ll be able to brand the following aspects of Zoom:
- Landing Page – Full HTML editing abilities with template tags
- Logo URL – Replace the Zoom logo with your own
- Header HTML – Full HTML editing abilities with template tags
- Footer HTML – Full HTML editing abilities with template tags
- UI for codeless changes (not recommended)
- Custom CSS (recommended)
- Images – Allows you to upload images to be used in HTML/CSS
- Emails – More details below
- Zoom Rooms – Upload your own custom background image
- Meetings and Webinars
- Meeting Post Attendee URL
- Message on Audio Conferencing
- Message when sharing registration page to social network (Facebook and LinkedIn)
Emails can be customized with a new Subject, Content, and also design with modifications to the underlying HTML template used.
Zoom supports customizing the following email templates with branding:
|Sign-up Email||After signing up, an email verification will be sent to activate the account.|
|Forgot Password Email||An email will be sent to reset the password|

There is no testing or proofing setup available. I suggest making the modifications as HTML locally and first presenting them to your client or team outside of Zoom. Once approved you can then move them into Zoom under the branding menu. It takes a little more time, but it’s the only way to verify the look before making changes.
Branding changes only apply to the organizations vanity URL (organization.zoom.us). Branding will not apply when accessing the web portal from zoom.us.
