Hi I want to create a webinar where I am the presenter, but I cant seem to do that? I can't find myself when I type my name in the presenter box, and if I save without a presenter it doesn't show up in my calendar.

I assume you are referring to a Microsoft Teams Webinar? Just checking as this is the Learning conversation. But if you are then when you create the webinar you are the Organiser and have the same rights as presenter role, plus ability to see sign up, edit the meeting etc (see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/roles-in-a-teams-meeting-c16fa7d0-1666-4dde-8686-0a0bfe16... as webinars are basically Teams meetings with sign up options).

You can add your name and bio in the webinar sign up page which your potential attendees see, if that is why you want to add yourself as a presenter. This is separate to the 'Presenter' option when you set up the meeting.
Thanks Sara. This is ideal thanks.
