Microsoft Teams webinars – Everything you need to know

How do Microsoft Teams webinars differ from a normal Microsoft Teams meeting?

Normal meetings generally involve a lot of back and forth conversation between participants: Discussions, sharing, assigning and accepting tasks, planning and possibly reaching consensus.

Webinars, on the other hand, are more controlled and the participants have clear roles: One or more experts (the presenters) share their ideas or provide training to an audience (the participants).

Roles in a webinar

Here you will find the respective roles and authorizations in a Teams meeting:
