Guest registration for live events
We have trouble introducing the live events feature if not every attendee is known. A solution would be, that additionally to the live event option "organization wide (registration required)" potential external viewer could register for the event, similar to the "Guest" registration for a team. So we can invite internal and external users and ensure that every viewer is known with name and email.
Adding support for anonymous users and guest registration is on the backlog. We’ll update when we have more details.

Ideally, we would like to cap the attendees (at some number that we chose) through a registration process, then have the registration process send out an .ics attachment for those that successfully registered.

As Bill mentioned back in January this is the only thing holding us back from using Live Event.

We ended up developing a web app for meeting registration and URL redirection to Live Events. It works well, but it would be nice if this was a native feature for a Live Event.
I tried promoting Teams Live Event as an option for a marketing webcast targeted to prospective clients. Deal breaker was the inability to be able to record contact information for meeting attendees. While the participants were asked for their name when joining the meeting, this information was not included in the attendee engagement report. We ended up having to subscribe to a competing product which would allow us to capture information about who attended our webinar. Ideally, we'd like to capture name, email address and optionally phone number of all meeting participants.
