Multiple moderators in Breakout Room

What are you trying to do? (Detailed description)
We need to have multiple moderators in Breakout rooms.

What is the challenge you’re experiencing?
We often have external customers facilitating breakout rooms which is great. They usually share presentations via screen share to go along with the group conversation
The issue comes when we need a second person to manage the break out room. eg. cameras, mics, end session, etc.
Our customer presenters are usually only involved in one event and it is not feasible to train them up on how to manage the breakout rooms as well as how to present and share screens. We only really need them to present, share screen and have conversations.
It would be better to have someone from our company manage the breakout rooms leaving the presenter free to share screen and engage in conversation.

Do you have a workaround that you use right now?
The only workaround we have at the moment is to have a company person be the moderator and they share screen on behalf of the presenter. This leads to the ‘next screen please’ problem which is far from a good experience for anyone in the breakout room.

I am fairly sure you can have more than one moderator in the breakout room. In theory anyone with the moderator code you create can be a moderator.

Interesting as the documentation says there can only be one.
Be great if this wasn’t the case

I just double checked and can confirm that you can have more than one moderator. You need to set a moderator code though.
