    1. Automatically: Attendees are randomly allotted rooms of a specified fixed size.
    2. Pre Assigned: Manually allot attendees into breakout rooms of different sizes.

Automatic Allocation

As the name suggests, the attendees are grouped randomly into rooms of same sizes. You have to select the room size (the number of seats per room) up to a maximum of 100 seats.
