🏴 How to schedule, host and set up your own webinar with Microsoft Teams via 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.

So in early May, Microsoft rolled out two new features for webinars and PowerPoint Live in Microsoft Teams. These will be available for everyone to use at about this time.

You do not need to purchase a new licence or product. These new features are included in almost all Office- and Microsoft 365 subscriptions.
