Unable to Add Presenters to a live Event

Copper Contributor



I'm not able to add presenters to a live event.  I add presenters' email addresses while creating a live event, and the invitation email is then well received by the presenters. However when they click to join live event, they join as an attendee only, and their videos aren't shared.


I have tried to add them as a Team member, thinking that could be the reason. However I am not able to add anyone as a team member either.


I'm on Office 365 E3 license.


Can anyone help with  this please?


Many thanks in advance

All these presenters external to your organization ?


Or are these presenters / producers are with Gmail, Yahoo email addresses ?


@Susheel_DograHi, thanks.


Yes, they are external presenters; gmail and yahoo email acocunt. 

I also recall reading somewhere recently that all the presented need to have a paid E1, E3 etc. license. Is that correct?
