How to schedule, host and set up your own webinar with Microsoft Teams PowerShell
Over the past year, we have found new ways to create engaging virtual experiences at work. We have turned rooms in our homes into offices, developed new skills for remote collaboration and, in some cases, used new technology to get our work done.
At the beginning of May, Microsoft rolled out two new features for webinars and PowerPoint Live in Microsoft Teams. These will be available for use by everyone at about this time.
1. Technical preparations for Webinars

in step 2, choose whether everyone is allowed participate. Or only people from your own organisation.
4. Fill in the registration form
In this form you can fill in the date and the name of the event with a description on the left side.
On the right-hand side it is possible to add fields that you need from the participants.
