  1. Multiple Content

    It would make sense to have the ability to queue not only the persons video but also their content already. So you can plan the person and the content in advance.

    Sometimes it is not useful that all presenters can push their content to the live event and cancel the others content.

    Every presenter should be able to set a content in advance and the producer send's it live and can prepare the next Presenter and his Content.

    Also would it make sense, that the Producer can provide the content and the actual presenter can use the content.

    I note that you have just delivered the ability to share System Audio from Windows during Teams Live Events. Please consider adding the same capability for Mac users of Teams.

  4. 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.

  5. External users also wait in the lobby at live events.

    External users also wait in the lobby at live events

    Anyone who knows the participation URL can participate in the public live event.

    I don't know who joined because I don't know the name or email address.

    Even if you know your account, it doesn't mean that the person you sent the invitation email to will join.

    Even if it is a public live event, the function to wait in the lobby and receive approval is required.

  6. 4 Block Presenters Pannel Discussion

    One of the scenarios for broadcasting is a panel discussion (e.g. after the main speaker).
    Please add a feature to divide the live screen in 4 blocks, e.g. videos from all 4 Presenter are streamed, one in each block.
    Thanks.

  8. Ability to restart a Live event that has stopped due to technical reasons.

    We have encountered issues where Teams Live Events just freeze or stop. We do not see options to restart an event that is stopped

  9. Live Stream - Mutiple presenters need to be seen at one time!

    With more an more users working from home, business's are leveraging "Town halls" more and more. often with the need to have multiple users in different locations needing to be seen in the live stream (not just one person at one time!) They need to be able to join from their laptop, mobile or other devices. I feel this option really needs to be added as soon as possible.

    Else you run the risk of users going to zoom (as an example - they have an online webinar service that I believe has this function!)

  10. Teams Live Events Call Analytics

    I would appreciate an tab created in the Teams Admin Console whereby we can analyze live Event call quality for participants in a live event for a communications support specialist or communications support engineer to analyze.

  11. Allow a "freeze screen" feature to keep the camera image up while you walk away for a moment.

    For video conference, currently, I need to shut off the camera and use the avatar if I need to walk away for a minute. It would be nice to have a "pause" feature to freeze my camera shot as-is while I get a coffee or use the bathroom. It's disruptive to either get up and move, or to set the avatar.

  13. Live Event / Meetings- Two Screens

    It would be great if when you are sharing your Screen in a meeting or live event, show your webcam as well so everybody can see both screens in the same window instead of using a 3rd party software or 2 teams devices.

  15. Give the Live Events producer actual control over the Live stream

    I've just tried my first dry run of producing a Live Event and it the lack of producer control over content that goes live is astonishing.

    How I thought it would work


    1. Presenters share windows or Powerpoints before they are needed which then show up as content options at the bottom of the Producer's screen


    2. The producer selects the content, places it in the queue, uses chat to tell the presenter they will be about to go and takes the content live.


    What actually happens


    1. A presenter shares a window

    2. It immediately goes live

    3. Producer sits open mouthed.

    Seriously, what…

  16. Allow the ability to make the person talking larger / equal size to the content being presented when producing a live event

    When producing a live event, you can share the video call of someone side by side with content being presented like an internet page or presentation. Currently, you can only have a big presentation and small window for the person talking. I'm asking that an option be available to swap them around or to make them similar sizes.
