  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Embed a Teams Public Live Event - So attendees can choose to join through the app, or just view it through an iFrame embed

    It would be great if it was possible to embed a Teams Public Live Event through an iframe link on another website somewhere.

  5. 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).

  8. Live Events - How to enable multiple presenters going live at the same time to be more interactive?

    Good day! Similar to a Zoom webinar, it would be great if multiple presenters/speakers can go live at the same time to make the event more interactive. By way of example, similar to a talk show where you have a host and a couple of guests and so the live audience can witness an interactive event where multiple speakers can be seen in the one screen at the same time or have that option that whoever speaks can immediately be seen on the screen rather than the current manual way of updating the Queue screen, sending it live and starting…

  9. 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...

  10. 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

    If Live event permissions is set to Public when creating a live event in Teams, you cannot select An external app or device at this moment. So, please allow users to select the option when the live event permission is set to Public.

  14. 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.

  15. Show current speaker name on live event

    When a multi-speaker Live Event is conducted, it is difficult to catch who is currently speaking.
    Even if speaker's video is shown, the name is not displayed.

    Please add the name indication for the current speaker, like it is done for usual MS Teams meetings.

  20. Producer communications during a live event

    Would love to see a producer talkback "line" that feeds only to other producers and presenters (ideally being able to mute one or both groups). The dream would be to have three listening groups (attendees, presenters, and producers) with three mute buttons for the producer to decide where they want their message going.
