After you have set up a new meeting, you can use this guide to use breakout rooms. Breakout rooms are used to split attendees into sub groups. The host can give the groups access to the tools.
2. Add a new breakout room
a. After opening the webinar, select the Breakout Room View in the Attendee Pod to use Breakout Rooms.
The default amount of breakout rooms created is three.
b. To add a new breakout room, select the Create A New Breakout Room icon ('+' button).
This should create a new breakout room for you to use.
3. Add participants to a breakout room
There are two options that hosts can use to add users to a breakout room, the first is using the 'Evenly Distribute' option and the second involves manually adding users.
To Evenly Distribute the participants, select Evenly Distribute From Main.
This should add the participants to the breakout rooms at random.
To manually add the participants to the rooms, hover over the user and select the Breakout Room that you would like the user to access or you can drag and drop the user to the room.
4. How to start a breakout room?
To start a breakout room, select 'Start Breakouts'.
A message will appear in the top right after you have started a Breakout Room.
When a breakout room has started, all the Attendees roles change from participant to presenter. This will allow them to use the pods and functionality within Adobe Connect.
5. How to broadcast a message?
To broadcast a message, select Pod Options and then Broadcast Message.
Type the message and select send.
You can also broadcast a message by selecting Broadcast Message in the top right corner.
