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.
While I understand your frustration with Zoom's native breakout room functionality for your specific use-case, there may be some Zoom Apps that can better facilitate your workflow.
For instance, Twine (https://marketplace.zoom.us/apps/-cYA3VcaQduxP8suHFGXiA) is specifically designed to use breakout rooms in a way that's more effective for speed dating(networking), etc:
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.
