Auto reassign to different Breakout rooms for networking events.


Hello and I hope you are all having a great day.  
I run a few networking events and one of the most annoying parts of running these on Zoom is that if I want my colleagues to be able to all meet each other in breakout rooms, I have to manually assign them, and then re-assign so they can meet other people.   Example:  I have a networking meeting with 16 people.  We want to do 1:1 networking so we do 10 rounds of 4 minutes each round.  This means I have to manually create and assign groups 10 times to assure that there is no cross over.  This is a huge undertaking and means that as the host, I miss out on the actual networking as well.  Is there any better way?   Other groups have moved from Zoom on to other platforms that can do this automatically.

Feel free to peruse the Zoom App marketplace for something that might work better for you than the functions natively baked into Zoom Breakout Rooms.
