Teams Breakout Rooms - organizer and presenter

Occasional Visitor

Hi, can the organizer of a Teams meeting place presenters into breakout sessions? I didn't see an option for this and would like to be able to place presenters into individual breakout rooms once they have started. Looks like the only thing they can do right now is 'manage breakout rooms' and then join a meeting themselves? Is that correct? Was hoping I'd be able to assign them to individual breakout rooms after the meeting starts.

Hi @Deena4,


If a user is given the presenter capability to manage breakout rooms, you cannot assign them specifically to breakout rooms. They would currently need to take control to join the room, but shortly (this quarter) we're releasing a view that will allow for folks that are assigned this capability to see all the rooms and select one to join without needing to take control.
