Hi all,

 

Trying to create a direct event in TEAMS, want my audience to be public, so I went into the strategy and made it "ALL"

 

But the option in direct event stay gray? any ideas?

Hi @Danielbelleisle

Correct answer to this is here

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-live-events/set-up-for-teams-live-events

Set the Live Events Policy in the Teams Admin Centre to Everyone and you will be able to schedule Live Events for the public

If you don't do this, it will remain greyed out. You can also change it with Powershell too

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-live-events/set-teams-live-events-policies-usi...

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
