Breakout Groups

Last updated: September 12, 2022.

To facilitate small group collaboration, moderators can create breakout groups that are separate from the main room and assign attendees to them.

Breakout groups have their own private audio, video, whiteboard, application sharing, and chat. Any collaboration that takes place in a group is independent of the Main room (and other groups).

Note: What is said or viewed in a breakout room isn’t captured in recordings.

What can you do in breakout groups?

Breakout groups are designed for group collaboration. Every attendee in the group is a presenter. This means that all group members can share the whiteboard, files, and applications with the rest of their group.

Group chats and content shared are private to the group. The Everyone chat room is open to everyone, no matter what group you are in.

Move to another group

Moderators can move themselves between groups any time. Moderators must give you permission to move yourself to another group.

If you can move between groups, open the Attendees panel, select Join group beside the group you want to join.
