Microsoft now offers a new webinar experience; this article describes how to update your settings to use these features.
Currently, the basic webinar experience is controlled by meeting registration using the Teams Meeting policy (Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy). In the future, the meeting registration setting will not control webinars; webinars are transitioning over to being controlled by the Teams Events policy (Set-CsTeamsEventsPolicy).
Set up new webinar experience
You must use PowerShell to set up the new webinar experience for your organization. The ability to configure the new webinar experience in the Teams admin center is not available yet.
Meeting registration must be on to use the new webinar experience.
To set up the new webinar experience, use the following attributes within the Windows PowerShellSet-CsTeamsEventsPolicycmdlet.
|AllowWebinars||Enabled||This setting determines if a user can create webinars.|
This setting determines which users can access the event registration page or the event site to register, as well as which user type is allowed to join the session(s) in the event.
Before you can run these cmdlets you must be connected to Microsoft Teams PowerShell. For more information, seeManage Teams with Microsoft Teams PowerShell.
