Hi Microsoft

 

I'm using Teams to deliver my online teaching at the University of Nottingham. You've improved it in lots of ways but PLEASE add the functionality for someone other than the person who created the meeting to create breakout rooms. The admin staff in our University create the calendar meetings for our students and us, but then we can't use the breakout room function to put them in smaller discussion groups. If I create my own meetings as a workaround this risks students getting confused which meeting they should be in.
