Please allow us to save our breakout room setups!


I'm an instructor at an online coding school. We use zoom as our classroom and use the breakout rooms when it's time for practices. It would be so wonderful if I could create templates or save breakout room setups in some way so I don't have to enter the same settings every single time. I think this would be a great feature for your next update! Thanks for your time.

There might be a couple workarounds for this:


If students are logging in with the same email address all the time, and you have it enabled, you can pre-assign breakout rooms via upload of a CSV file.  Upload the file when you schedule the meeting.  Keep a copy of the file on your local computer in case you ever need to change it, and reupload if necessary.


If it's a recurring meeting, and your on the right version of the Zoom app, looks like you can save breakout room assignments too -


Thank You

Hi @Jordi_dev 


This feature is now available! You can save your breakout room setup for future use in a recurring meeting. Here is the snippet from our support article that will show you how to do this:


Saving current breakout room assignments for future use
If you want to save these assignments, either done automatically or manually, for use in a future meeting in this series. Up to 10 different saved assignments are supported for each user.

Note: The recurring meeting must have a fixed recurrence pattern. No-fixed time meetings are not supported.

  1. After breakout rooms have been assigned, but are not currently open, click the button and then click Save Breakout Rooms.
  2. Provide a name for this set of assignments.
  3. Click Save.

Where are the breakout rooms saved? 


save breakout rooms for future use - this feature doesn't work when I allow participants to choose breakout rooms. I have submitted feedback today. Hope Zoom can tweak the feature to work in all scenarios. Thank you.
