Zoom: Assign a New Participant to a Breakout Room


If a meeting attendee joins the meeting while Breakout Rooms are in progress, an announcement appears at the top of the meeting window on the attendee's screen. The announcement message is similar to the following:

  • "The host has started Breakout Rooms.  Please wait to be assigned."

At this point, the meeting leader may choose to assign the new attendee to a room in progress, or, the new attendee may remain in the main meeting room. 


Add a New Participant to a Breakout Room

  1. Select Breakout Rooms on the toolbar at the bottom of the meeting window.
  2. Choose Assign and select a room/attendee.
  3. The new attendee will be prompted to join the room already in progress.
