Recover Students to Pre-Assigned Breakout Rooms

If a meeting host has pre-assigned breakout rooms using a .csv file and the host clicks on the “Breakout Rooms” button prior to everyone joining the meeting, they will need to use the “Recover to pre-assigned rooms” feature to get students back into their pre-assigned rooms.

If this occurs, the host will need to:

  • Click on the dropdown button “Recreate” that is in the bottom left corner of the “Breakout Rooms” pop-up window and then select “Recover to pre-assigned rooms”
  • Now everyone who was pre-assigned to a breakout room will be assigned to their room
