Screenshare stops when Host enters breakout


When I am screen sharing in the breakout rooms, how do I prevent the screen sharing from stopping if I (the Host) join a room?

Hi @ErikaJ 


That's a common limitation we have.
Currently, screen sharing by the host or co-host is interrupted when they enter a breakout room.
This is because breakout rooms function as separate meeting instances, and the ongoing screen share from the main session isn't carried over.


Hope this helps - Happy to help further!!
Thank you very much and have a great one!

Warm regards



Thank you for confirming. I'll have to think about a workaround.

Yes I have found the same thing...must start sharing after entering break out rooms. Lately I have had a different issue in that I cannot open the the breakout room control panel, to set up breakout rooms, without stopping screen share. It was not always that way but at least the last year I have to stop sharing to open assign participants to breakout rooms. Really frustrating, especially when your instructions for the breakout room activity you need to project. Also, like your issue, you can't forget to start sharing again. Have you had the same issue?
