MC481829: Microsoft Teams Support for Co-organizer to Manage Breakout Rooms

The Microsoft Teams Breakout Rooms feature enables co-organizers to create, manage and move between Breakout Rooms like meeting organizers. We will be updating this feature for co-organizers to have the ability to:

  • Create rooms
  • Configure room settings, including appointing additional Breakout Room managers
  • Assign participants
  • Add/Remove rooms
  • Open/Close rooms
  • Send announcements
  • Rename/Delete rooms

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 105014

Co-organizers can create, manage and move between Breakout Rooms like meeting Organizers.

MC481829: Microsoft Teams Support for Co-organizer to Manage Breakout Rooms

When this will happen

Preview: We will begin rollout in early-December and expect to complete rollout by mid December.

Standard Release: We will begin rollout in mid-January and expect to complete rollout by end January.

Government Clouds: We will begin rolling out in early March and expect to complete rollout by mid-March.

How this will affect your organization

Users assigned as the co-organizer role in the main meeting will be able to create and manage Breakout Rooms on behalf of the organizer; they will also automatically be assigned the co-organizer role in Breakout Room meetings and will be able to access/modify meeting options for any Breakout Rooms too.

When rooms are opened, co-organizers will be treated like organizers with regards to the ability to join and move freely between Breakout Rooms.

Note: co-organizers won’t be able to pre-create Rooms and pre-assign participants ahead of meeting start. Breakout Room Creation/Management will only be possible during live meeting for co-organizers.

What you need to do to prepare

No preparation is needed. You may want to update your training materials indicating that the co-organizer role is now supported for managing Breakout Rooms.
