Canvas conference breakout room random assign does not seem to work

When I want to randomly assign participants to a breakout room, it does not allow me to do so. Has anyone else experienced this and found a way to make it work. Needing to manually assign my participants to breakout rooms takes so much time (large group)!

Hello @u152141  ...

I am not sure of an answer for you, but I would like to bring @ffdixon into this conversation in hopes that he will be able to help answer your question. Good luck to you!

I am the product manager for BigBlueButton.  While I work at Blindside Networks, the company that provides hosting for Canvas Conferences to Instructure, and can't speak on behalf of Instructure, I can respond to your question.

When you create a breakout room, there should be text that says "Randomly Assign".  




Clicking that text will randomly assign users to breakout rooms.
