SHUFFLE/BREAKOUTS

Breakout Buttons let you control user movement in a space.

They can be used for creating temporary breakout rooms, moving users from one room to another, or moving users from one participant slot to another.


Bring All Here

To bring all of your guests to one room, follow the instructions below.

Add your breakout button:

  1. Click on the breakout button icon 🔀 on the top of your screen.
  2. Drag your button into the "Notes and Controls" panel below, so only you and your event directors will be able to see it.
  3. Click on the button to bring up its settings in the right-hand panel.
  4. Name your button in the text box next to "Text" in the "Element" section of your right-hand settings.

Configure your "Bring All Here" button:

  1. Click on the pen icon next to "Config" in the "Element" section to open up the button's configuration.
  2. Select "Permanent" in your Breakout Config.
  3. Click on "Select users..." and select "All users (except pinned)" from the dropdown.
  4. Click on "Pick a Room" and select the room that you want to bring your guests to.
  5. Click "Done" to save.

To turn off the message that pops up when you click on your button, asking "Are you sure you want to do the breakout?", you can click on "For all users only" next to "Confirm on Run" and select "No."


Shuffle Users Into Permanent Rooms

Follow the instructions below to shuffle users into pre-existing rooms.

To make a "shuffle/breakout" button:

  1. Create your breakout button by clicking on the breakout button icon at the top of the screen.
  2. Drag your button into the "Notes and Controls" panel below so only you and your event directors will be able to see it.
  3. Click on the button to pull up its settings in the right-hand panel.
  4. Name your button under "Text" in the "Element" section of its settings.

To configure a "shuffle" button:

  1. Click on the pen icon next to "Config" in the "Element" section to open up the button's configuration.
  2. Select "Permanent" in your Breakout Config.
  3. Click on "Select users..." and select "All users (except pinned)" from the dropdown.
  4. Click on "Pick a Room" and select the multiple rooms that you want to bring your guests to.
  5. Enter a number for your target group size in each room.
  6. Click "Done" to save.

📌 Pinning

Pinning someone to a specific room means that you're tying them to that room and exempting them from all breakout buttons.

Only people who have Admin Access or Director Mode-Only access have the ability to pin.

How to pin a guest (or yourself) to a room:

  1. Look to the left-hand room navigator list.
  2. Click on the pushpin icon in the top left of a participant preview; it should turn red.

Now, your guest will not be able to move out of that room. This feature is especially helpful when you want to pin breakout room hosts to rooms before running a breakout session.


Break Out a Set of Rooms

Sometimes, it is useful to treat a set of rooms as a breakout target.

For instance, you may have a template room A that links to room B. When you create a copy of A, you may want to link to update so that it links to a copy of B.

This is useful for creating an escape room experience where multiple teams move through a set of escape rooms independently.

In order to link two breakout templates into a set, you need to set the Navigation Parent Room to a room that is in your breakout set. In the example above, the Navigation Parent Room for room B would be set to room A.

Navigation Parent Room

The Navigation Parent Room option only appears for elements that have "Show in Room Navigator" disabled.
