Through registration at that endpoint they will be provided the direct meeting link to the webinar (vs the Teams registration landing page).&nbsp;<BR /><BR />Question (ask): Is there a way to disable all email comms to registrants/attendees that are [automatically] generated by interacting/participating with or in the event -- either using the Teams admin center or Teams PowerShell?<BR /><BR /><BR /></P><P>My thought was disabling all activity notifications at the user level for a specified period of time (in this case perhaps from the creation date of the webinar up to 48 hours after the event) using Teams PS but I don't have a strong knowledge of the syntax to accomplish.

What scenarios are you thinking about? What infrastructure are you thinking about for the in person portion to enable interaction between in person attendees and remote participants? What feature gaps do you see to enable hybrid events?<BR /><BR />I'm working with an organisation that is trying to answer these and other questions. They envision creating purpose built spaces to facilitate hybrid events with: interactive video walls, virtual/hybrid partner booths, SW services/Apps to support feedback from in person and remote participants, potential use of mixed reality to give remote participants a more in person like experience (AltSpace/Azure Mesh).&nbsp;<BR /><BR /></P> <P>It would be great to hear from others what they think.

I've been searching for a solution but I'm struggling to get a good answer. Do you know if it is possible to get an attendance report of a recorded Webinar or Live Event? As in, after the event is concluded and somebody views the saved recording, is it possible to tell whether a user actually viewed it?

If anybody has a solution already, I would also&nbsp;appreciate any hint.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Background:<BR />We are producing live events quite regulary as&nbsp;multi-format events, that means participants can join meetings on premise in meeting hall or online via live event. Multiple speakers present content after each other while standing on a stage. Of course, the on premise alternative for audience was not used that much during the last months, but we expect increasing in the future.<BR />At the moment, I am able to stream audio and video to external/online users with a delay of about 20 seconds. For speakers and attendees on premise those 20 seconds delay are confusing when we put that signal on a beamer or video wall as the lip-sync ist totally out of range ;)</img><BR />Further, there is no possibility to put the chat-feature (and only the chat-feature, in full-screen) on a video-wall/beamer.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Requirement:<BR />What I would like to have is the ability to</P><UL><LI>put the video-signal from the producer-PC directly to a beamer/video wall (with no delay, in fullscreen)</LI><LI>put the chat-feature in fullscreen to a beamer/video wall</LI></UL><P>&nbsp;</P><P>That would help to enhance the on premise meeting-experience in several ways:<BR />1. Audience on premise could see the speakers also on video-walls/beamers<BR />2. Remote-Guest-Speakers could also be involved to be seen by local audience/local speakers<BR />3. Chat-questions could be shown to local speakers/audience (at the moment we only read chat-messages to speakers)</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Does anybody know a way to fulfill those requirements or put them onto the development list</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Regards, Marko.</P> Mon, 31 May 2021 09:58:20 GMT markorudloff 2021-05-31T09:58:20Z Webinar feature | camera <P>We have started using the feature webinar with an microsoft e3 license and now we cannot allow other people to turn on their camera.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Everytime we want to save "camera allowed" as activated, it returns "an error has occured".</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Does anyone have an answer to this?</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thanks in advance.</P> Mon, 31 May 2021 12:47:29 GMT ronjarotthues 2021-05-31T12:47:29Z Can't Access Meeting Options ("Something went wrong") <P>Hello,</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I'm organizing a webinar on Teams, so I'd like to set the waiting room and host &amp; attendees to the meeting I set.

If a backup encoder is used, ideally it should be as close to the configuration of the primary as possible.</P> <P>But it should be tested thoroughly for fail over, and should take into account that updating one encoder or the other may cause failures in scenarios where previously it had succeeded.

This can very be distracting, unprofessional or disturbing.</P> <P>Please find some important ways to ignore these dings and pings sound during the event:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>1. Go to the settings of your Teams Client and choose your status to DND (Do not disturb), by doing that you will not hear any ping sound while receiving any message , though you will be receiving all the messages from others but silently. Checkout the below screenshot as a reference :</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Susheel_Dogra_0-1618867277457.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src=";px=400" role="button" title="Susheel_Dogra_0-1618867277457.png" alt="Susheel_Dogra_0-1618867277457.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>2. Second way , If you go the right bottom corner of your system's task bar and hit the notification center and click on the below icon shown in the screenshot and set it to PRIORITY only , you could actually avoid the unexpected sounds from your system during the event :</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Susheel_Dogra_1-1618867451967.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src=";px=400" role="button" title="Susheel_Dogra_1-1618867451967.png" alt="Susheel_Dogra_1-1618867451967.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>3. And the last way would be , go to the start menu of your windows and type FOCUS ASSIST , open the setting and choose PRIORITY ONLY</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Susheel_Dogra_2-1618867562006.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src=";px=400" role="button" title="Susheel_Dogra_2-1618867562006.png" alt="Susheel_Dogra_2-1618867562006.png" /></span></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Susheel_Dogra_3-1618867636128.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src=";px=400" role="button" title="Susheel_Dogra_3-1618867636128.png" alt="Susheel_Dogra_3-1618867636128.png" /></span></P> <P>I hope this will help you to produce the events more efficiently.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Cheers !!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>#</P> Tue, 20 Apr 2021 11:39:40 GMT Susheel_Dogra 2021-04-20T11:39:40Z Don't have live event option on teams <P>I don't seem to have the "Live Event" option on my Microsoft teams calendar.

I use the internal chat to alert presenters of the run-of-show, etc.&nbsp;<BR /><BR />The issue is when they're sent 'Live,' you can hear the ping of the internal chat echoing in the background.

We are running a private event for 450+ attendees from different external organizations. So far, it seems Teams will only allow me to add them one by one in the "Give permission to" field.&nbsp; Not ideal for large attendee lists.<BR /><BR />I do not want to create an outlook group for these folks (which would send them an unwelcome alert they have been added to a group).&nbsp; I have tried copy/paste with all the email addresses at once with a colon after them, a comma after them... but it just yields the response "we didn't find any matches."<BR /><BR />Any ideas to avoid adding them one at a time?</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="mmonsma_1-1613581461536.png" style="width: 571px;"><img src="" width="571" height="83" role="button" title="mmonsma_1-1613581461536.png" alt="mmonsma_1-1613581461536.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Wed, 17 Feb 2021 17:13:27 GMT mmonsma 2021-02-17T17:13:27Z Music License to play music during a Teams Live Event <P>Can&nbsp; anyone advise if a music license is required to play music during a Teams Live Event that is recorded?</P> Tue, 09 Feb 2021 22:23:02 GMT KarinWeltman 2021-02-09T22:23:02Z Visually Impaired Attendee Using Microsoft Teams <P>Can anyone recommend best practices for visually impaired external attendees in a Teams and Teams Live setting?

I set up a Test Teams meeting.&nbsp; It all worked great - they were able to click on the link - see the others who were on the test call - we were able to see them.&nbsp; We then set up the Happy Hour and sent the invite to the guest.&nbsp; We instructed them to go to their email and click on the link in the invite related to the Happy Hour.&nbsp; Every time she clicked on the link, it took her to the space from the old 'test' invite 4 days prior. She'd see a message that said the Host would need to let her enter the meeting. But when I'd go to the current Teams link, she wasn't in the 'lobby'.&nbsp; So I went to the 'test' calendar invite from 4 days prior - clicked on that link - and it came up saying she was waiting in the lobby to enter.&nbsp; I deleted that 'test' invite hoping to eliminate this from happening.&nbsp; But it kept doing the same thing.&nbsp; The system would not take her to the current Happy Hour meeting - even though we knew she was clicking on the right link.&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> Wed, 27 Jan 2021 15:45:40 GMT Beth_Robinson 2021-01-27T15:45:40Z Live Event Guest user add new background <P>Hi,&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>A user has been added as a guest to our tenant, so that they can present in our Teams Live Event. All of this has been set up correctly, the user can enter as a presenter and everything is as expected.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>However, the user needs to add their own background to their video feed, to keep everyone's backgrounds consistent. We have instructions on how to do this, by clicking the "Add new" button at the top of the background settings menu. They can access the background settings menu, however there is no "add new" button. This works on my own account and is available for us. I tested it with another guest account and again there is no "add new" button. I assume this is something to do with being a guest user.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Is there a way to resolve this for Live Events, as the user needs this option.&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thanks&nbsp;</P> Wed, 27 Jan 2021 12:49:23 GMT emacleo2 2021-01-27T12:49:23Z Live Event By Invite Only <P>We have been trying to solve for holding live events that are accessible only to our verified customers.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>We were first hoping to use our B2C AAD (using username not email) to do this, but that doesn't seem possible until Microsoft provides more extensive API.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>We then tried to invite guests to our main AAD as the numbers were relatively small at 500 or so.

What if it's set to "People and Groups"? Can I then invite people from outside our Org and use a 3rd party encoder?</P> Thu, 15 Oct 2020 18:14:18 GMT Milwanke 2020-10-15T18:14:18Z Teams Townhall Meeting - meeting quality stats for attendees <P>Yesterday we produced a CEO townhall meeting with around 75 attendees.</P><P>The connection details of the event team are visible within the Teams admin center, but what about the attendees. The webcam and a powerpoint presentation were shared. Actually a lot of them complaint about the bad screen sharing quality of the presentation.

But that just seems silly.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Any thoughts? I'm assuming other people see this same issue.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Thanks</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Damien</P> Thu, 08 Oct 2020 06:50:43 GMT Damien Calvert 2020-10-08T06:50:43Z Live Caption and ASL interpreter streaming <P>The Events Playbook refers to the use of external encoders and OBS to stream Live Captions (CART services); or ASL interpreter feeds into a Live Event.

Triple check your desktop setup - turn off notifications, finish updates, close unnecessary apps</P> <P>2. Create a recording of any live demos for backup or to simply "roll" when the time is right<BR />3. Always, always be friends with your tenant admin in IT if this isn't you.&nbsp; Make a point to have a relationship with these folks so you can go over details or get help if needed.&nbsp;&nbsp;<BR /><BR />There's so much more :)</img> but that's in the playbook here:&nbsp; <A href="#" target="_blank"></A>&nbsp;</P> Fri, 18 Sep 2020 07:50:12 GMT Karuana Gatimu 2020-09-18T07:50:12Z Being an event organizer <P>Being an event organizer can be rewarding and stressful!&nbsp; Here are some pro tips I've learned from producing many events across my career and especially since March, 2020:<BR /><BR />1. <STRONG>Exhale</STRONG> - No one knows what your show is supposed to be but you. The calmer you can stay while you are delivering your content the better for you, your technical team and your talent (presenters).</P> <P>2. <STRONG>Rehearse</STRONG> - If you are producing an executive town hall or more formal event there is no replacement for bringing everyone together to review the "show flow" or what is going to happen when.&nbsp; Knowledge and practice is power.&nbsp;</P> <P>3.&nbsp; <STRONG>Digital is different</STRONG> - Having more engaging content and keeping your audience's eyes moving is an important part of ensuring you don't have drop off during the course of your event.&nbsp; Shorter sessions, more breaks, switching content views are all tools you can use to keep things interesting.&nbsp;<BR /><BR />I hope you will all share your own tips for other event organizers here!&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> Thu, 17 Sep 2020 15:30:37 GMT Karuana Gatimu 2020-09-17T15:30:37Z
