What's the workaround for 'shuffling' auto assigned breakout rooms in Teams?

Copper Contributor

Wondering if anyone can advise...


I need to run a sequence of 10 breakout rooms with auto assignment, which I can easily do. I need it to do it three times, but each time I need the breakout rooms to be re-randomised. Zoom does this easily via 'shuffle', but Teams doesn't have this functionality. However, I have to deliver on Teams.


So my question is, if I run 10 auto assigned breakout rooms, then shut them and return everyone to the main room, then delete all breakouts and create a new 10 breakout rooms, will the Teams algorithm auto assign the same participants to the same rooms or is assignment completely randomised?
