  1. Allow producer to enable Q&A to a Live Event once it has begun

    Allow producer to enable Q&A to a Live Event once it has begun.

    as a Producer or Presenter, maybe the Q&A panel was not elected during creation of the event. Once the live has begun, it would be ideal o be able to turn on Q&A panel for users.

  2. Allow upload of pre-recorded video

    It would be great to upload a pre-recorded video such as a or town hall. This would allow producers to switch between the pre-recorded content and the live component.
    It would also allow people to use Live Events for webinars with better production value as they could record the content beforehand and then be available to answer Q&A live.

  3. Pop out live events

    It would be nice to be able to pop out live events, just like we do for meetings.

    Sometimes I want to continue to use Teams while attending a live event, and it bothers me to just have a small window at the bottom right.

  4. Non-365 Guest Presenter in Team Live Event Meeting

    I don't really understand Microsoft to block Non-365 Guest Presenter in Team Live Event Meeting. Because of this strange decision we have to stick with Webex or Zoom...

  5. Applause for Live Events

    We need a button for attendees to be able to "Applause" during and after Live events. At the end of in-person presentations, we normally clap for the presenter to show our appreciation for their efforts. It felt wrong not being able to do so in the Live event

  6. Master audio control for live event

    Hi MS Teams,

    I have been using the Live Event in Teams a lot.

    There is one feature that would be helpful as a Producer.

    It would be great to be able to mute the master audio out.

    You could have the event live, with a holding slide broadcasting.

    However, still be able to talk to the Presenters and Producers in the

    back end, right up until you want to start presenting.

    Is this something that may be added in the future?

    Kind regards,

    Mark

  7. Making external encoding features native to Teams Live Event

    Include features of an external encoder (i.e. OBS) natively available within Teams Live Event. This will enable studio quality production of a Live Event.

  8. Show published and dismissed questions in Teams Live Event Q&A report

    The current Q&A report in Live Event only includes: Source, Type, Identity, Timestamp, Conversation, Id and Content. It should show
    more detailed data in the Q&A including questions that were published and questions that were dismissed.

  9. request a presenter unmutes their mic prompt

    When you're in the producer role in a live event, you are able to mute the presenters Mics however you can't unmute.

    There should be a button to not just flat out unmute the presenter, but send a prompt to their screen to make them aware that they're muted and requests that they unmute their mic.

  10. Streamline external presenters in Live Events

    It would be nice if we could have external presenters in Live Events simply by inviting their email address.

    Currently, to get external presenters into a Live Event, the recommendation is to create a Team for the live event, add the external user to that Team (creating a guest Azure AD account in the process) and then invite the guest user to the Live Event. If the external presenter already has an M365 account, they must sign out of Teams, then sign back in and choose our guest tenant. If the Live Event producer invited the external user's email address…

  11. live event start

    When you click to start a live event, it seems to always rewind a few seconds so the audience get to hear the producer finish counting down or telling the presenters that they are about to go live. Could this be adjusted so that the event starts to broadcast when the button is pressed and not before?

  12. Include computer sound

    Force Teams Live Events to only record audio from a single window like it used to, whereas it now pulls from the entire computer. This causes an issue when sharing and presenter speaks, get looped echo. Have to add headphones to stop this happening.

  13. When sharing a screen (share Content) the presenter needs to have a monitor window.

    When a person is sharing their screen they are not able to see what is being presented and always ask "Can you see my screen?". Therefore add a monitor screen to allow the presenter the ability to see what is being shared.

  14. Enable gallery view for Teams Live Events

    Enable gallery view of all presenters in a Teams Live Event to the attendees so they are able to see video of all presenters at same time.

  15. Allow Live Event to be Restarted after accidentally hitting End

    Please allow a Live Event to be restarted for a period of time (even just 5 minutes) after a presenter/producer accidentally hits End. I have been on several very large live events where one of the presenters/producers thinks they are just leaving, but they end the event for everyone. This causes a significant amount of lost time (and embarrassment). While additional warnings in the UI might lessen the problem, allowing the event to be restarted seems like the only way to really solve the issue (us humans struggle with not clicking on things... its just who we are).

  16. Ability to view both presentation, presenters and attendees in separate windows to utilize a multi-screen setup

    During meetings where presentations are required it would be highly appreciated if we had the possibility to both see the presentation, the presenter and other participants separately as larger streams in stead of the small stamp sized pictures

    It could be done by being able to detach a specific stream to become a borderless windowed video overlay that can be placed on another screen and maximized if one has more than one monitor or a very large screen.

  17. Content Sharing / Video playing in pre-live and post-live

    Most of the customers would want to have content shared / video played pre-live / post-live in a live event. Today in a pre-live the Live event provides a black/grey screen with a message that "The meeting is yet to start", similarly for post-live.

    For better engagement and context setting, having capability to share content or play video is desirable, both pre-live and post-live.
    I had this requirement in almost all the live events.

  18. Add Producer or Presenter After Live Event Has Started

    Please add the ability to add presenters and producers to a Live Event after it has started. Currently when you do this when the event is using a 3rd party codec for production, you get a message that "This can no longer be edited. This live event has started." It is very common for someone to need to be added to an event to manage Q&A, production, etc. after the event has started already. Please add this ability that already exists for events produced via Teams natively.

  19. In Live Events, more clearly let presenters know they are live

    In Live Events, system should let presenters know when they are live (red box/note like producers can view and a microphone / you're live). Presenters gave feedback that it's not prominent enough.

  20. Add the Webinar registration and attendee emails features to Live Events.

    The Webinar custom registration page and attendee emails are great. Having these features built into Teams saves a lot of time doing pre-event work. But Live Events work better for our needs.

    Would like to see the same custom registration page, attendee tab, confirmation & follow-up email features in Live Events.
