Hi Community, I'm Natalia and I work at EPAM as a communications specialist focusing on online professional communities and social learning. We've noticed that a couple of our groups still dont have the 'live events' feature, although they are 0365 connected ones. I've posed the question on the forum, got the response to check some settings, checked, we comply with them, but still no feature available. Could you please advise how to make 'live events' appear? :)

@Natalia Nemkovich thanks for the question! There are a few reasons that you might not be seeing the Create an Event option: 

 

Your Yammer group will need to meet these criteria: 

 

 

I've never heard this, but I am interested in the answer...following.

@Michael Holste I have the same issue as Natalia, but it is not showing for any of my groups. We have changed the Enforce Office 365 Identity previously awhile back. We have not completed the 1:1 network migration for Yammer, once we complete that, will it automatically allow us to create the live events or anything special we need to do? 

@Michael Holste, thanks for the reply!

The thing is that the groups meet the requirements you've mentioned, I asked our enterprise admins to check all the settings, but the issue persists...

@Amy Dolzine, yes, I'm interested as well, as it's so bad that we dont have it for one of our most popular professional groups
