Pre-assigning participants would be a massive time saver!
Maintaining continuity of breakout rooms / attendees of the rooms for reuse, when meetings are recurring (currently my workaround is to reuse a previous meeting by editing the time, in order to maintain the same set-up) but since breakout rooms do not retain attendees if they are not currently in the call, I find that I have to reassign all attendees every time -- Just a massive time sink, and often has trouble with participants not being added correctly or dropping out and then rejoining only to find that they are allocated, but unable to see the rooms.
Having templates and channels that can be reused and applied for user-defined standard calls would be incredibleAlex supported this idea ·
