  1. Content Delivery and Reporting for Live Events

    Use teams app to provide content delivery bandwidth utilization reductions through P2P along with network reporting and statistics similar to what Hive provides. Other applications like Zoom, BlueJeans for broadcast events offer this native to the application.

  2. Ability to uploadload videos into Teams Live Events to queue up and play by the producer through their interface.

    This would allow videos to be uploaded into the broadcast stream ahead of time with audio and the producer would just send the file to live to start the video/audio. This is a future in some of the competitive products like BlueJeans.

  3. Give an option for Teams Live Events (and other O365 live events) that will play music before meeting starts

    BlueJeans for broadcast events plays audio (like elevator music) so that the remote parties can test the audio devices before the critical events start. This prevents the need for outside companies and needing to start the even early to do audio tests.

  5. Improvement of live event creation function

    When creating a live event, you can create it quickly if the mailing list can be used to set the access permission.
    I would like to improve this function

  6. Allow users to choose from number of camera angles in Live Events

    We'd love the option to provide several camera angles and views to our end users and allow for them to choose which they wish to view as the primary view

  7. Want to add multiple security groups at once when setting Live event permissions

    It would be great if I could add multiple security groups at once in the Give permission to field when setting Live event permissions. Currently we can only add one security group at once, so even I want to add another one, it can’t be added unless I save the schedule and edit it again.

  8. Real-time stats during a live event or meeting

    During the event we want the ability to see who the attendees are that joined, currently you can only see the total amount of attendees that joined…further to this, we want to know what their experience might be…We want this to be available in real time as the event is running…we want to be able to pinpoint which attendee is having a bad experience as well as knowing when the network between producer / presenter and service is causing the delay as the event progresses.

  9. Increase the 4 hour limit on a live event

    Some of the events run over the 4 hour limitation currently set. We want the 4 hour limit increased to cater for a full day event.

    Creating 2 live events to make up 8 hours is also not a optimal solution for us

    To help customers meet rapidly changing communication needs, Microsoft Teams has temporarily raised default limits thru July 1, 2020 for Live Events hosted in Teams. Similar increases are coming for Yammer and Stream.

    - Attendee limit: events can support up to 20,000 attendees
    - Concurrent events: 50 events can be hosted simultaneously across a tenant
    - Event duration has been increased to 16 hours per broadcast

    For reference, see https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams#teams-live-events

  10. Enable Teams Live Events for O365 Business Premium Licenses

    Please allow Office 365 Business Premium Licenses to use Teams Live Events. I was shocked to find out that E1 Licenses can use Teams Live Events but not Business Premium Licenses. If E1 Licenses can use Teams Live Events why can't Business Premium Licenses? Small Businesses of less than 300 users can definitely make use of Teams Live Events, especially for their customers and product/service announcements.

  11. 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.

  12. Facebook like Live event

    Live events is a powerful feature. We'd like a more Facebook like user experience for creating a Live event in a team. The user would click a button in a Team channel to begin a live event that would show up in the channel for Team members to join - then comment and react during the live event. This would be different from a Team channel meeting in that: 1. No limit of 250 - only limit by Team membership; 2. No audio or video capability by those who join that would interrupt the user who is recording live. Leadership…

  13. Add live voting and polling to Teams Live Events

    With other platforms, you can ask participants to vote and or answer polling questions during the meeting/event. I would like to see functionality such as that available in Teams Live Events (and actually in regular meetings too).

  14. Use a external encoder in a public live event

    I want to see that the function "use an external encoder" becomes active for a publict live events. Today, it is not possible to offer a larger "webinar" for external users, in my case customers.

  15. Live Events Unmute Presenters

    Currently the producer have the ability to mute a presenter but can't unmute him, it would be nice to have for a full control and fluid experience.

  16. Teams Live Events PowerPoint Support

    Please add the ability to share/display a PowerPoint slide deck. Currently, this is only possible via screen sharing with Live Events unlike with Skype Meeting Broadcast and Teams Meetings (non-Live Events). This means attendees can't browser slide decks during a Live Event which is a very useful feature. This is noted as a limitation of Live Events while in preview, so just hoping it gets added as a feature. Thanks.

  17. Save live event recording in Teams channel and Stream automatically

    We love the new "live event" feature, but we're not able to roll this our yet as we're missing the auto upload to Microsoft Stream.

    Our current setup is an internal product demo every 2 weeks, where we record the demo. This demo is saved in Stream and a thumbnail of the recording is automatically showing in the demo channel in Teams.

    This is the note which I found in the Help Center:

    Note: "Quick start" live event recordings are currently not saved in Microsoft Stream. You can download the recording from the meeting details and upload it manually to…

  18. Need accurate count of attendees of a Live Event

    Currently, when in a Live Event the Producer window shows 0 attendees, even when there are attendees.

    The attached file shows that it says 0 attendees when we do have some. Tested this on multiple events with multiple users.

    We need this to be accurate.

  19. Live Events Mute/Unmute Participants for Q&A

    Allow the producer to unmute/mute participants if they ask a question. So the experience could be, a person asks a question in Live Events, the Producer selects them and announces "We have a question from Bob" and then unmutes Bob and allows Bob to verbally ask his question.

  20. Teams Live Events - download file feature

    want to have a feature that allows attendees to download a file that a producer uploaded.

    When we deliver a presentation, we want to share the PDF/PPT with the audience. Currently, Live Events (or formerly Skype Broadcast) doesn't have a "download file" feature, we need to setup a separate method
