Hi experts When attendees join a live event they view a screen which indicates the event has not yet started - is it possible to show some content on that screen (e.g. slides) and/or play some music while people are waiting to join the event? thanks so much

Yes @WendyWW    That "meeting hasn't started yet" screen is basically a placeholder until you start the feed by clicking on the START button.  So you can share content and audio before a meeting starts by just starting the presentation (make sense?)  You just have to remember that the meeting is live, so you have to mute your microphone or chat with the presenter via the internal chat feature so the audience can't hear you.  When you're ready to formally begin, you just advance to the opening slide or someone starts to speak.

 

Take a look at this video (starting around 7:39) to see what I mean:  https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Teams+live+vents&docid=608032545849476743&mid=AF7136F0FC021BBEF...
