What Are the Different Roles in a Live Event?

Live Events in Teams feel a little different than a regular Meeting. In a normal meeting you have Presenters and Attendees, but in a Live Event you have Producers, Presenters, and Attendees.

Let's break down the basics of each:

  • Producer: Must be a PSD account. Creates the Live Event, has control over the Presenters in the Live Meeting, can end the Meeting, and has control over the Meeting Recording. 
  • Presenter: Can be from inside or outside the district, can share screen, talk, and show video in the Live Meeting when the Producer allows them. 
  • Attendee: Can be from inside or outside the district. Can't share audio or video during Live Event,  although they can chat or answer Q&A if enabled.
