How to Import a CSV File to Create Pre-Assigned Breakout Rooms

Purpose: Breakout rooms can be created using a CSV file import if hosts desire to divide a large number of users with ease. Zoom provides a template CSV file for hosts to download and complete that can then be imported into a newly scheduled Zoom meeting. Hosts must enable the “Breakout Room” feature and have the “Allow host to assign participants to breakout rooms when scheduling” feature turned on to complete these steps.

**When copying and pasting data into the CSV file, users should paste only the values into the spreadsheet to avoid carrying over other underlying data that will prevent the import from processing correctly in Zoom.**
