The following instructions walk you through what to do if you have missing participants/students, and/or unassigned participants/students in your breakout rooms.

This will re-assign participants according to your breakout room setup.

 

 

 

Unassigned Participants/Students

 

Participants/Students must be signed into Zoom for them to be pre-assigned.

Unassigned participants can happen if a participant was omitted during the pre-assignment breakout room setup or if a participant leaves (i.e. internet down) and then comes back into the meeting.
