I'd like to engage the pre-assignment of participants to Breakout Rooms. How should I get started?

Pre-assigning participants to Breakout Rooms is available via the website interface at tennessee.zoom.us. Please keep the following tips in mind when engaging this feature.

In order for the pre-assignment to engage,

  • Participants create a UT Zoom account at tennessee.zoom.us and sign in before attending the Zoom online classroom.

  • The leader adds the participants' names in the website interface directly (the pre-assignment check box is available during the process of setting up the online session), or, the instructor uploads a.csv file via the website interface.

  • Participant email addresses must be in the format of NetID@tennessee.edu.

The pre-assignment feature is only available for accounts on our UT Zoom license. After selecting the pre-assignment and adding the participants' email addresses, the leader should start the session, select BreakOut Rooms, and open all the rooms.

Participants who do not join a Breakout Room via the pre-assignment may be moved manually to a room.
