Roadmaps from SPC19

Leave a comment

This week I attended the SharePoint Conference North America 2019 (SPC19).

There were a lot of announcements during the week. I have stated to gather the roadmaps that were disclosed during the conference.

Note: This is a quick release, I will update with more clear images and links to the sessions when the slides decks become available.

Configure Live Events for Microsoft Teams

Leave a comment

Microsoft Teams live events allows users in your organization to broadcast video and meeting content to large online audiences. The maximum duration of the event is 4 hours and you can add up to 10 000 attendees, including external/guest users (if allowed by your company)

Microsoft Teams Live Event license requirements

A user must be assigned the following licenses to create a Teams live event

  • An Office 365 Enterprise E1, E3 or E5 license or an Office 365 A3 or A5 license.
  • A Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Stream license.
  • Allowed to create live events (via Live Event policies)

How to enable Microsoft Teams live events in your Organization?

To enable Live events (if not enabled), your Office 365 Administrator, needs to connect to the Microsoft Teams Administration center.

The administrator must select the Global policy (which applies to everyone) or create a new policy (that could be assigned to specific users)

In the policy you can:

  • Allow Live Events Scheduling
  • Allow Transcription for Attendees
  • Allow Recoding of events
  • Specify who can join Live events in your organization
    • Everyone in the Organization
    • Specific users or Groups
    • Everyone (means also guests/External users)

How to assign a Custom Live Event policy to a user?

 

To assign a custom Microsoft Teams Live Event policy to a user, you need to:

  • Open the Microsoft Teams Administration Center
  • Click on Users
  • Click on the name of a user to open the user’s properties
  • Click on Edit (to the right of Assigned policies), to change the assigned policy

Note: There might be a delay before the policy is actually applied to the user (up to 24 hours)

In the Edit user policies pane

Click on the arrow beside Global (Org-wide Default) for Live Event Policies and select the policy that you want to apply to your user.

Click Save to apply your changes

Note: “Allow to create events with guests” is a custom policy that I created.
