57 Differences Between a Live Event and a Meeting
There are many differences between a Meeting and a Live Event in Microsoft Teams.
Some of the differences between the Live Event and Meetings features on Microsoft Teams include:
- A Live Event can be joined by up to 20,000 people, far greater then the hundreds allowed in an interactive teams meeting.
- The chat and the attendees mic is disabled in the Live Event.
- A Live Event has more roles than a meeting. A meeting has a limited number of roles which include Organizer, Presenter and Attendee. Conversely, a Live Event has the following roles::
- Organizers– Responsible for the scheduling of the event and assign the permission requirements are made. (public v.s. private)
- Producers– Act as hosts of the live event, can control what the attendee sees displayed.
- Presenters– Responsible for presenting the audio or video, as well as moderating the question and answer section.
- Attendees– The viewers, do not have any responsibilities other then watching.
- Some situations where a Live Event can be used include webinars, town halls, and a product launch.
- Some situations where a Meeting can be used include company meeting, school class, and a meeting with a potential customer.
In conclusion, both tools are very valuable but serve their own distinct roles. We hope this helps you determine which tool will be of best use for you.
