Networking

On Breakroom, networking is everything. Learn how to curate a personal contact list, join and create in-world groups, and leverage your contacts in order to control region access.

Overview

The location of the "People" button in the bottom toolbar.

The People and Groups functions in Breakroom are designed to help you create, manage, and leverage the power of people. The People menu allows you to create a personal index of coworkers or associates in order to facilitate communication and project collaboration. Meanwhile, Groups can be formed in order to promote networking, organize events, or control access to specific areas.

World owners can disable access to the People button through the World Dashboard. If you do not see a People button in the lower left-hand corner of your screen, the world owner may have elected to turn it off.

In the sections that follow, we'll explore the People and Groups windows in more detail. We will also cover the topic of user profiles -- what they are, how they can help you and your users make connections, and how they can be edited.
