For Hosts: Managing Pre-Assigned break out rooms during the session
Open the Break Out Room Window
You may need to click the "More" button to access the break out rooms button.
If you are not the host you will not be able to access the breakout rooms button. Co-hosts, and alternative hosts can not control break out rooms.
Check Break Out Rooms
Participants will not be in their break out rooms yet, you will need to assign them.
Recover Break Out Rooms to pre-assigned rooms
You will need to push the "recover to pre-assigned rooms" IMMEDIATLY before you "Open All Rooms"
Zoom only checks the current participants against the pre-assigned list when you click the button. So if you click that button, and then new students log into the meeting they will NOT be assigned to their break out room. Therefore you must click the "Recover to pre-assigned rooms" at the last possible moment before you click "Open All Rooms"
Open All Rooms to Send the Partipants to their Breakout Rooms
Manually Assign Others
The process often leaves a few participants out of the break out rooms. You will need to assign them to the correct break out rooms manually in the break out room window. It is a best practice to have a list of participants and their break out rooms on hand to make this process easier.
Click on the Assign button or the number next to the room name.
