Zoom Recovering Pre-Assigned Breakout Rooms

EdTech Support (MESG) | Zoom in the Classroom: Training & Support Resources

After starting breakout rooms within your Zoom session, you can restore / recover the breakout room assignments that you previously specified by using the "Recover to pre-assigned rooms" feature. This can be useful if you pre-assigned participants have joined the meeting after you joined the meeting or started breakout rooms, you changed your breakout rooms during the meeting, or if Zoom has a glitch and does not properly assign the students to the pre-assigned rooms.

  1. Start the meeting with participants pre-assigned to breakout rooms. 
  2. Click Close All Rooms to end all breakout rooms.
  3. Click Recreate then Recover to pre-assigned rooms
  4. Participants will be restored into the breakout rooms you specified when scheduling the meeting.
