Can someone please provide some pointers or solutions for the scenario below?
If you have a training session that requires two different breakout room configurations. For instance, at10:00 am I want 25 participants to be manually/randomly assigned to five breakout rooms. Then, at 11:30 am, I want to use my pre-assigned/csv file for same 25 participants to be automatically assigned to five (pre-determined) breakout rooms.
What or how would the "Recover to pre-assigned rooms" fail to work in this situation?
In theory, what you are asking should work. I have not tested it myself but here is an article describing what you want to attempt. Scroll to the bottom for the recover pre-assigned rooms section.
I wrote a long blog post regarding Zoom Breakout rooms. I know how the CSV file works. I haven't tested whether you can use the CSV assignment after randomly assigning people to breakout rooms.
Here is what I would do.
That may be the easiest way to handle this. If I have time this weekend, I'll test the CSV after random Breakout rooms.
