We'd love to be able to hold a large meeting, then break folks into smaller breakout groups to work on problems or issues together, then return to the large group to share.
Adobe Connect can do this, and we'll never fully switch until we have this capability

So some teachers of ours at Nanjing International School figured out how to create these in a way that allows for things you can't do in Zoom or Adobe Connect, namely record to the cloud (Stream) the activity that takes place in the breakout rooms/groups. I've attached a how-to drawing for people to go through, and hopefully someone in MS will pick up. Just note that in order to achieve the editing "pencil" in #3 you need to type something in the chat first.
See https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/35000044-introduce-breakout-room-functionality - let's collect the votes there!
ABSOLUTELY NEEDED. COMPETITION HAS IT FOR A WHILE!!!
This would be greatly appreciated in our volunteer organisation, where people want to run "webinars" with our existing software.
Wow, I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more votes… Seems like a really useful feature - for education too.
