After jumping through a lot of hoops with our IT team, I’ve been able to get the Teams integrations setup to allow us to schedule webinars directly in Teams Meetings. We’re doing some testing sessions to figure out what our process will be but it seems promising. Does anyone have any tips or watch outs they can share?

For now, we’re just doing a Teams Meeting integration, not Live Events, but I’d be interested in any experience with Live Events as well. Thank you

Hey @rich.schmick, I used this post as reference for our discovery

Lessons learned from our side are:

  • You will need to create an account per instructor. To do this, you will need to have the instructors access the integration for them to pair their account. 
  • Only the instructor will see the events in their calendar, attendees will not get them through the integrations, only through a user enroll in a session notification and it needs to have the calendar attachment.

@alinabo so am I reading your post correctly that every instructor that uses teams needs their own integration? We set up an enterprise integration which I tested and it mostly worked. 

The one issue I encountered in was that both learners and instructors entered the teams meeting at presenters. I had to manually depreciate learners to attendees. Have you encountered this?
