Prepare meeting breakout rooms
As a creator of a meeting I want to prepare my breakout rooms before the meeting gets started. So i already assigned people to rooms before the meeting is going to start.
When the meeting is in progress i Only need to open the rooms.
Next to that you want to send documents directly from the main room to the breakout rooms
Thank you for your feedback. The team is currently exploring options for this. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

That would indeed help a lot if you could prepare the rooms in advance or chose to keep the rooms from the last meeting (2 features).
I also have a couple of more questions:
A) Can you switch a person from room to room? How?
B) If you upload a document in the chat, you can only do this once. The second time you get questions about it. I often upload small documents in the rooms but when I have 12 rooms it becomes tenious to do.
Thank you in beforehand for your information.

Yes, that would be nice and less stressful on the spot in a meeting.
Also provide the ability to pre-create multiple sessions of breakouts within one meeting.

Yes please! This is so so needed because it will shorten the amount of time that is spent just assigning groups when everyone is already present for the meeting/training. Very necessary.

I can't tell you how many of my teachers have asked for this, or worse, have not used Teams in favor of "the other guy" because it does have this ability.

The ability to prepare breakout rooms prior to the meeting would greatly enhance the experience in some scenarios.

would be very usefull!
Yes, we need to be able to prepare breakout rooms prior. We would do not be able to set them up once we are in session.
The intention is that we would use them for hearings and when we need to adjourn, we would explain to each party that we will place them in a breakout room and bring them back when we are ready to continue.

Yes please, this would constitute a major upgrade for MS Teams

It would also be helpful if facilitators could enter breakout rooms early to set up files, Forms, and Whiteboard.
This feature would be very useful!
Essential feature for large groups with numerous breakout sessions!
Being able to prepare my breakout rooms is essential for my lessons. It takes a lot of time to assign pupils once the class has started, they are waisting minutes waiting. Please add this feature!
