Hi all (again),

I just attended a conference call on Zoom and discovered an interesting
feature. Twice during the call, we were divided into breakout groups for
about 10 minutes each time. After the specified time, participants are
given a one-minute warning then automatically taken back to the main room.
Would be interesting to see the back-end setup of the breakout rooms.

Thank you,
