Joining a Teams "Live Event" as an External Presenter
These instructions demonstrate how to join a Teams "Live Event" as an External Presenter, without being logged in with a Teams account of any type.
Joining A Live Event
To join a Teams Live Event as a Presenter, you must have been invited by the organizer of the event. When invited, you will receive an email and a calendar invitation for the event.
Locate and open the email or calendar event, then click the link to "Join Live Event".
To join as a presenter, you must install the Teams application. Windows is pictured below, but presenting in a Teams Live Event is available on Windows, MacOS, & iOS. When the "Join Live Event" link is clicked, a new page should open prompting you to choose how to open the Teams Live Event. Click to download the app.
Once the download has finished, click to run the Teams installer. Follow any prompts that you may be presented with to finish the installation on your device.
The Teams application and the meeting window should then open, with the text "Join as a presenter" at the top. As a guest presenter, you must enter your name. Guest presenters with a name different than the invited presenter will not be admitted into the meeting by the event organizers.
Enter your name, confirm your camera and microphone settings, then click "Join Now". You will be placed in the meeting lobby, awaiting admittance from the meeting organizers.
Once you have been admitted into the meeting, use the meeting controls to participate in the meeting.
