How to Create Breakout Sessions in Webex Meetings

Note: You will create your breakout session while you are in your Webex Meeting.

1. Enable the breakout session feature: From the Breakout menu, click Enable Breakout Session.

You can also enable the breakout session feature when you schedule a meeting.

When the breakout session feature is enabled, the Breakout sessions button appears in the meeting controls.

2. Click Breakout Sessions.

 Note: Only one host or cohost can have the Breakout session assignment dialog box open at a time.

3. Select the number of breakout sessions that you want to create and how you would like to assign your participants:

  • Automatically: Let us split your participants up evenly into each of the breakout sessions.
  • Manually: You assign participants to each breakout session.

4. Click Start assignments.

The breakout sessions are created. By default, breakout sessions are named Breakout session 1Breakout session 2, and so on.

If you chose Automatically in Step 3, the participants are assigned. If you chose Manually in Step 3, assign participants to breakout sessions.

Note: If you want to change the number of breakout sessions or how the participants were assigned, click Reset and repeat Steps 3 and 4. The new breakout sessions replace all existing sessions.

5. Change breakout session settings.

6. When you're ready to start all breakout sessions, click Start breakout sessions.

Note:  If the breakout sessions aren't set to end automatically after a specified number of minutes, you can end all breakout sessions when you're finished using them.
