Presenter role assigned during live event

New Contributor

Hi, I am wondering if there is the possibility to assign "Presenter" roles not only before the streaming of a live event but also during the live event. For example, there are Awards event where we need to announce the winner and "promote"

During a Live Event, you can click the People Icon and invite another presenter.

I wouldn't suggest this, there's 20-30 second delay between Live Event recording and broadcast, your call out to a winner would happen before they know they have won. They would also need to be using the desktop version of Teams as you cant join as a presenter from mobile or web etc.


So many chances for this to go wrong. 

Thank you for the suggestion!
