Zoom Meeting and Breakout rooms with Facilitators


Is it possible to preassign 10 facilitators to 10 breakout rooms and have the other meeting particpants assigned automatically to the 10 rooms?

Hello @msmith1 

At the moment with the current design of Zoom, the preassigned rooms will function as if all preassigned users are participants. There is not a current way to preassign co-hosts to breakout rooms to facilitate prior to the meeting. I believe this would be a good feature request, and if you add it to it can be placed on a roadmap by Zoom for further production. I hope this helps!


It's not fully possible, but here is what I would do:

  1. Rename all of your facilitators with an emoji at the FRONT of their name (so they easily stand out)
  2. If possible, also make them co-hosts because then you can uncheck the box to assign co-hosts to Breakout Rooms when automatically assigning all participants of the meeting.
  3. Then, go into each room, click add and find the cohosts.
  4. Because of the emoji you can quickly spot and confirm that each room has a cohost assigned
