The Meetings window and region bookmarks

Breakroom's built-in events schedule makes it easy to keep everyone on the same page. Advertise events and meetings, invite specific users to RSVP and attend, and provide handy teleport bookmarks.

Overview

The Meetings window allows you to schedule virtual events and publish them for your users to see—even weeks in advance. Users can add your events to their own schedules and immediately teleport to your chosen venue when it's time to meet, saving you the hassle of teleporting them individually. You can also opt to make events invite-only, or open them up to a wider audience.

Using direct bookmarks

Landmarks are currently being rebranded as bookmarks. You may see both terms used in the existing Breakroom UI.
You can choose the precise location where your attendees will arrive by using the Select Landmark drop-down menu when scheduling an event. To get started, you will first need to bookmark your chosen landing spot.
