Breakout rooms are subrooms that can be created within a meeting or training session. They are useful for splitting a large group into smaller groups that can talk and collaborate with each other.
Note: To use the breakout rooms feature, you must have the sub conferencing feature enabled on your InterCall On-Demand Pragmatic account. Once enabled, your account can handle up to 15 breakout rooms with the maximum number of ports set up on your account. If you do not know if your account has sub conferencing feature enabled or the maximum number of ports per meeting, please contact customer service or go to www.intercallonline.com to see your account details.
