Get Started with Teams Live Events

  • Get Started with Teams Live Events


    Are you looking for an easy to use webinar, conferencing, or training tool? Chances are if you are using Microsoft 365 you already have the tools you need! Teams Live Events is an extension to Microsoft Teams, where presenters have the opportunity to share live events to a selected audience or community via Stream, Teams, or Yammer.

    This is great news! Especially with the recent influx of remote working. It is easier now more than ever to have large audience training sessions, informative webinars, or whatever you may need to do! Rather than scheduling for a Teams call, where everyone has access to video and microphone sharing, you will have authority as the presenter to designate who else can present with you (select event group members).

    Additional highlights of using Teams Live Events include:

    1. The community can chat and ask questions in the Q+A box to the right side of the screen. As a presenter, you can monitor these comments and approve for publishing.
    2. You gain access to attendee data. Specifically, you can see how well your webinar is doing by monitoring guest attendance and viewing times.
    3. If you offer a live event with a public setting, you are instantly generated a public link that gives access to anyone interested in joining the session. Having a public link is great for marketing and development.
    4. Before going live, you and the other presenters can organise together using your presenter link. You can discuss the webinar, practice sharing screens, and review, all before going live!
    5. The live event vent does not start until you click ‘go live.’ This is different than a Teams meeting where anyone can start the call if they are invited.
    6. The viewer watches the event live or on-demand using DVR controls. The viewer does not need a Teams account to watch and can join in anonymously or authenticated.
