  1. 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…

  3. live event delay

    MS needs to reduce or eliminate the 30-50 second delay in Live Events. It's hard to conduct webinars when hosts are waiting this long for a response after asking a question.
    This is making hard for us to continue to use Teams in this way manner.

  5. Allow only invited external users at live events

    I want to hold a live event that can be viewed by external users.
    If you make the permissions public, people outside your organization can view them.
    However, we want to limit it to some external users.
    I hope this feature is implemented.

  7. Need 1080p video output resolution and stereo audio in Live Events

    I'm quite certain this has been asked before, but to reiterate we need 1080p video output resolution and stereo audio in Teams Live Events. We are encouraged to use high quality cameras and audio capture devices but if the Live Event output is only 720p max for video and mono audio then this defeats the purpose.

  8. live event pin video

    Now that we can pin a video source in regular Teams meetings, please extend that ability to Live Events as well.

    We use Live Events for multi-site staff meetings, however as we start adding multiple locations and multimedia, we're stuck with a video grid or hacky solutions like using OBS to project a cropped version of the desktop to a TV. Being able to pin a video source would fix this.

  9. Implement Full HD and 4k in Teams Live Event

    For Presentations including high amount of figures or Marketing Slides, the resolution should be capable of displaying those figures correctly. 720p is not the resolution customers want in 2020 and we see a huge benefit in live events with full hd or 4k support.

  10. Virtual teleprompter powered by AI voice recognition

    When having a speech with Teams and you use "Word" as speaking template you see always the eyes are not looking toward the camera and the eyes wander along the lines. This looks not professional. TV professionals are using therefore teleprompters. IT would be great to have something like a virtual teleprompter. Semi transparent text that is shown close to the camera. And scrolling upward when speaking. The AI could automatically recognize if you are on track with your text and automatically scroll further for you. That would be a dream.

  11. 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…

  12. Break out rooms for Teams Live

  13. Send Two or More presenter Video along with content in separate window live at a same time in Teams live event like Zoom Webinar live event

    Send Two or More presenter Video along with content in separate window live at a same time in Teams live event like Zoom Webinar live event . This useful Feature is missing in current versions and would help to have interactive sessions between panel members (Presenters). Due to missing features, even though we are fully on Teams platform we have forcefully moved to Zoom

  14. Allow Guest presenters via web without Teams App

    We need to be able to allow presenters to join via the web without needing to install MS Teams App. Bringing external parties who do not use Teams to present is cumbersome when asking them to install the app.

  15. reduce the lag in presentations

    there is a long lag in presentations that makes it very difficult to present in real time to customers. Can it be improved? if we could get it down to 5-10s max that would be ideal we are currently running 25-30s

  16. Enable Live Events for Education in the UK

    Microsoft have removed access to Teams Live Events from the A1 subscription whilst the UK are in the middle of a national schools closure at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Schools generally use the A1 subscription plan in the UK, following DfE funding to get schools onboarded.

    Enable this facility to provide a quality remote education provision to students until the end of the academic year (August 2021).

    Google still offer this facility for free in Google Classroom.

  18. Customisable attendee information collection and reporting for both meetings and live events.

    Zoom allows for customisable attendee information collection for both meetings and live webinar events, as you can create mandatory registration settings.

    Teams does not have this feature on live events, where attendees must either join with a linked Teams account or join anonymously, making it impossible to identify them through reporting.

    Add optional settings for live events (inc public ones) such that certain details are required in order to be able to join. After the meeting the attendee information should be available as a report.

  19. Customized splash screens in Teams Live Events

    It would be great if the producer could publish a customized splash screen (with company logo and so on) to inform attendees that the event isn't started yet, or during the switch from a presenter and another one (to avoid bad black screen in-between).

  20. Enable OnScreen Overlay for Name and Title

    I would like the ability to have a bar across the bottom of the screen that shows the name and title of the person who is speaking. Ideally this would be something configurable, where I can choose background color and font color. It would be fine if the event pulled in name and title from their login information or could be typed in by the producer in advance. Also, either the ability to turn the overlay on/off by the producer or it is configured to show for the first xx seconds that the presenter is live. This would give the…
