From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC249250

Message Summary

Note: This announcement only applies to customers who are currently able to utilize Live Events. If you do not currently have access to Live Events you may ignore this message.

We originally communicated this in MC240167 (Feb ’21). With this update, meeting organizers will be able to allow anonymous presenters in a Microsoft Teams live event.

This feature is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 70599.

When this will happen

Rollout will begin in mid-April and complete by the end of May.

How this will affect your organization

Your meeting organizers will now be able to schedule an anonymous presenter for a Teams live event when using the Teams desktop app.

Meeting organizers will indicate when scheduling the live event that they expect an anonymous presenter. This must be managed when scheduling the meeting.

Meeting setup

The anonymous presenter must also use the Teams desktop app.

  • PSTN (dial-in) users will not be supported in this new anonymous presenters workflow
  • If this option is set, only invites users will be allowed directly into the meeting regardless of the lobby option set for the tenant

What you need to do to prepare

This feature is available to tenants with licenses for Teams Live events at no additional charge.

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
