To create a breakout room:

  1. Enable Breakout rooms - Go to the admin panel, navigate the "Breakout rooms" tab, and click on Enable breakout rooms.
    (Note! If this is not your first breakout room, you can start from the second step.)

  2. Create your breakout room in Brella. Select Create New Breakout room and start filling in all the required information. Each room has this data set to fill:

    • Room name: Title of the session or room.
    • Date: The dates of a breakout room are only available within your event's duration assigned in event details.
    • Time: You can choose either a specific time when the room will be open or choose to have the room open all day.

      ❗Once a room reaches its end time, it will close immediately without any warning. If you're unsure whether the sessions will last longer than the time specified, please extend the duration and use the timer to track the timing of your sessions.
    • Cover image (optional): The recommended aspect ratio of the picture is 16:9.
    • Description (optional): The report can briefly introduce what will happen in the room.
  3. Press Create room to save the room.
