I recently had a conversation with a client who said they were using Microsoft Teams for most meetings, but were using Zoom due to the 250 attendee limit on Microsoft Teams meetings. Not only did that mean exposure to the Zoom security issues, but also added licensing costs and complexity for users.
Did you know that you can go beyond the 250 attendee limit using a Live Event with up to 10,000 attendees?
Setting up a Microsoft Teams Live Event is pretty simple, but it does work a little differently from standard Teams meetings. Here is a step-by-step guide:
Running a live event is a little different than a standard Teams Meeting. There are quite a few additional settings to help deliver a more professional presentation, handle questions, capture recordings, and present content and speaker video.
Remember that Live Meetings are more like webinars than a multi-directional chat. Like a webinar, you may find it helpful to have different person produce the meeting than the person who is delivering the content. Click here to learn more about running Live Events.
Setup a test meeting and experiment with the settings a bit to see how you can share video, audio and queue up other content.
Microsoft Teams is always a great option for communicating and collaborating with teams of any size. During the current crisis it’s a particularly helpful way to stay connected. But it can be easy to create unnecessary complexity if Microsoft Teams is not configured well.
