Everything You Need To Get Zoom Running

Pre-assign Participants to Zoom Breakout Rooms

Breakout rooms enable discussions and projects that separately need discussion. A solitary meeting can have up to 50 breakout rooms. These rooms can be pre-assigned while scheduling a video call or assigned during one. They are also sometimes used to increase the time duration of the meeting since a group meeting on a free plan has only a 40 minutes limitation. Follow the steps below to pre-assign participants to breakout rooms:

  1. Sign in to your account and schedule a meeting from your profile.
  2. Go to the Meeting section and hover to the Breakout Room Pre-assign.
  3. Now create as many as 50 breakout rooms as per your requirement and assign participants by adding their emails.
  4. You can name each room separately by clicking on the pencil icon.
