Can participants move themselves between breakout rooms in Teams?
Participants can be moved when breakout rooms are open or closed. Select Assign participants and select the checkbox next to the person's name you want to move. Choose a new room for the person and select Assign then Move.
Now, when the Self-Select Breakout Rooms option is enabled by the host (and when the host and participants are on Zoom 5.3. 0 or later), participants can move freely between Breakout Rooms without needing the host's help.
To allow participants to move freely between existing rooms without recreating them, click options (lower left corner of the Breakout Rooms window--if you closed it, click Breakout Rooms in the meeting ribbon controls to re-open the window) and check the box next to Allow participants to choose room.
Breakout rooms can only be created in meetings that have fewer than 300 attendees. In addition, creating breakout rooms in a meeting automatically limits the number of meeting attendees to 300. Advise your end-users to not initiate breakout rooms in meetings where they expect more than 300 participants.
The meeting host (and co-host) can create Breakout Rooms, and can manually place participants into rooms, or have Zoom automatically assign them into rooms. The host (and co-host) can jump between rooms, and choose to close and reopen rooms at any time during the meeting.
External users cannot manage breakout room at this moment, they will need to join to the team and change their role to Presenter: Go to your Teams calendar and open the meeting invite. Go to Breakout rooms and select Room settings Settings button. Switch the Assign presenters to manage rooms toggle on.
The Host can move participants between breakout rooms while they are in rooms to mix up the discussion. The Host can end the breakout rooms, bringing all participants back to the main Zoom meeting. They can then send participants back to the same breakout groups or create new breakout groups.
Breakout rooms allow a meeting organizer to split your attendees into multiple online rooms for discussion and collaboration in Teams. Meeting organizers who schedule a meeting can create breakout rooms in advance then pre-assign members to the breakout rooms.
Breakout room participants have full audio, video and screen sharing capabilities. The host of the meeting will not be assigned to a breakout room and cannot see or hear what is happening in the breakout rooms during the meeting.
