  • You’ll be able to generate unique join links for special guests. 
  • Even guests outside of your organization can be added.

Microsoft Teams will let you generate unique join links for special guests, such as presenters at a webinar, that will allow them to directly join the event, without the need to manually admit them in the waiting room, or change their role during the event.

Organizers will be able to set up these links and email them to the special guests, thus eliminating all the issues that would normally happen in these situations.

Plus, you can also add guests who are out of your organization, effectively bypassing the policies around guests (AAD/B2B/non-AAD), federated, and anonymous users (non-AAD).

The feature was added by Microsoft in the 365 Roadmap at the end of August, and it’s scheduled to start its rollout in October 2023. You will be able to use this feature for webinars only, and everybody has access to it, including non-Premium Teams users.

In the Teams meeting panel, you’ll need to go to the Event team section, and there you’ll have to designate your event members.

In the External Presenters section, add the email addresses of the external people that you want to invite to the event. You can add as many as you want, as there is no limit, for now.

Microsoft Teams will then generate a unique link that will be sent to all the emails that you added along with a special message. It’s not yet known if you can customize this message or not, but it looks something like this.

According to the roadmap, the feature will be automatically added and enabled once the rollout is finished.

  • Standard Release: late October and expected to be completed by early November.
  • GCC: late October and expected to be completed by early November.

We think this feature is going to be very useful because a lot of management issues regarding webinars will be avoided thanks to it. What do you think about it?
