OneCloud Connect: Using Breakout Rooms

Note: Breakout rooms require an enterprise OneCloud Connect subscription. Please reach out to your OneCloud account manager or Support if you’d like to upgrade to OneCloud Connect Enterprise.

Breakout Room Overview

Breakout rooms allow meeting moderators to create separate rooms inside the main meeting. Users can move into the breakout rooms for smaller collaboration groups. Just like collaborating in the office, users can move from room to room, giving them the flexibility to move around rooms as needed.
