How can I set a timer for my breakout sessions?

Set a countdown clock to display at the top of the webinar room for hosts to control the duration of the room and notify speakers when their discussions are coming to an end.

Note: This feature is reserved only for Enterprise and Events Package plan holders. If interested, please contact our Events Experts at


Previously, hosts needed to keep the time for their breakout sessions on a separate device. Now, our breakout rooms include timers, so hosts can control the duration of discussions and automatically end them at a pre-set time.  

A countdown clock will display on the top right corner of each individual breakout room, as shown below. 

Breakout sessions will automatically end once this timer expires and attendees will be redirected back to the main webinar room.  Learn more about breakout rooms here
