Re: Breakout rooms?

The functionality is actually not for meetings, it's to allow virtual seminars. Like that you can have keynote with everyone watching, choice of different talks in multiple rooms, smaller workgroup sessions etc.

The idea is that it's easier to control through a single 'meeting' with 'submeetings' than having an individual meeting set up for each session.

And yes, not allowing hosts to pre-assign submeeting membership is terrible
