Opening Breakout Rooms in Groups


Hello, I am planning a conference on zoom with multiple breakout room session. Is it possible to pre-assign all the breakout rooms and open them in groups, or do all the breakout rooms open all at once? Any workarounds if this is not possible?

Hi @TheWynningExp! Welcome to the Zoom community, we're happy that you're here 😊

Here is an article that walks you through how to pre-assign participants into breakout rooms:


It's not possible to open the rooms in groups during pre-assignment, but here is what you can do to open the breakout rooms one by one. When you start the meeting you can manually create a certain number of breakout rooms to start. Make sure to click the Let participants choose room option. Click Create to open those breakout rooms. Once you see the breakout rooms you started, you can click Add Room to add more breakout rooms and open them up as options for people to join.
