Public Live Event with External Presenters
I had a recent open case with Microsoft where they acknowledged that the ability to add external presenters to Live Events have been changed due to a recent Teams update. Microsoft Support advised that external presenters will have to be added as Guest in to the tenant and then they will be able to join the Live Event as presenter. Previous behavior for Live Events that were scheduled for public viewing was that external presenters were able to join without the requirement for being added as a trusted guest within our tenancy, nor needing added to a Team in order to join. Microsoft Support suggested that I enter a uservoice to request the previous process to be reverted. Prior to the recent teams update, we were able to have external presenters within our public scheduled Live Events, without having to enter them as a trusted guest within our tenancy and add them as member to a Team. Similar to how we currently allow guests into our meetings. I would like the ability to have external presenters within our public Live Events once again, without the requirement to add them as trusted guests within our tenancy and add them to a Team.
Often External Speakers are invited to present one time only. Configuring the application for each occurrence is inefficient and unnecessary. Please revert to give the ability to add external presenters to Live Events.
