Here’s how to allow users to add and share their pronouns in the Zoom app

If you are the admin or owner of the account, you can set up the Pronouns section of the account to allow users in your account to add pronouns to their user profiles and optionally share those pronouns with colleagues who are present at meetings they host or at they attend and webinars they attend or host. Unless an account owner or admin has mapped pronoun information through SSO, only the user themselves can add pronouns to their profile.

All account types except Basic Free and Single Licensed User accounts have this option disabled by default. An account owner or admin can enable it at the account level by granting them access.


To share your pronouns with others during meetings and webinars, you can easily add them to your user profile if you have a free basic or single license account.

What are the requirements for users to enter their pronouns and share them with the system?

What you need to do to allow users of your account to type and share pronouns

For each user in the account, you must do the following to enable the pronouns feature:

  1. Sign in to the Zoom website as an administrator with permission to edit account settings on the Zoom web portal.
  2. Go to the Account Management section of the navigation bar and then click on the Account Settings tab.
  3. Click the Meetings tab.
  4. In the admin options on the left side of the page, you can toggle to allow users to type and share pronouns.
  5. The change will be confirmed after you click Activate in the confirmation dialog box.

After enabling this feature, you can either let users enter their pronouns directly, or let your Identity Provider (IdP) automate adding this information to your website through SAML mapping. If your authentication provider supports a pronoun field in Zoom, an authenticated user’s pronouns are automatically mapped to their Zoom profile after they log in to Zoom via SSO. Here’s a quick look at how you can add pronoun information to your SAML mapping using simple mapping.
