The better way to meet—Microsoft Teams Premium

Frequently asked questions

  • The word “webinar” is a combination of “seminar” and “web,” and it could be a presentation, a lecture, a workshop, or another event hosted online. Webinars and virtual events platforms are used to build engagement and relationships; enable hybrid work; empower communication and collaboration with employees working remotely and in different locations; and inform, demonstrate, and teach.

  • Ordinary meetings generally include a lot of back and forth among the participants—having discussions, sharing, assigning and accepting tasks, making plans, and working toward consensus.

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

  • Anyone who can schedule a Teams meeting can schedule a webinar. If you’re unable to schedule one, check with your IT admin.

  • Anyone can register, but your IT admin can restrict registration to people in your organization. You may also choose to restrict registration when you schedule the webinar.

  • After your webinar, create customer journeys and send personalized follow-up emails to your attendees using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing.

  • Webinars in Office 365 and Microsoft 365 subscriptions add basic webinar functionality to Microsoft Teams Enterprise, such as registration for up to 1,000 attendees, a co-organizer role, interactivity with Q&A, attendee reporting, and Dynamics 365 Marketing options. Advanced webinars in Teams Premium include all of the basic webinar functionality but with new host controls and event management controls that help you seamlessly connect with any audience. Some of these advanced features include automated reminder emails, a registration waitlist and manual approval, a virtual green room, and the ability to manage what attendees see on screen.
