As a Microsoft Teams Attendee:

  • As an attendee of a live event in Microsoft Teams, you will be able to view the speakers/presentation and participate in the moderated Q&A. You cannot share audio or video.
  • All attendees’ microphones will be placed on mute upon their entry to the webinar. Attendees can unmute themselves, but we ask that everyone please stay on mute for the duration of the presentations. Please see the Q&A procedure below for when to unmute lines.
  • All attendees have control over their own video feature – you can choose to keep your video feature open or closed.
  • Please see visual of a closed video feature and muted microphone below.

Q&A Session in Microsoft Teams:

  • We will have a Q&A session at the end of the presentation. The Q&A procedure is as follows:
  • Attendees can type questions into the chat box (please see green arrow below pointing to icon to open the chat window) and the webinar moderator will ask the question on your behalf.
  • If you would like to ask a verbal question, the steps are:
    • Please type your name into the chat (please see green arrow below pointing to the icon to open the chat window) and indicate you would like to ask a verbal question.
    • Webinar moderator will queue up the names.
    • When your name is called, please unmute yourself and ask your question.
    • You will then be placed back on mute.
