It is used if live events are to be made accessible to people outside your own company (without login).

To allow public live events, proceed as follows:

  • Log in to https://admin.teams.microsoft.com with an administrator account, click on Meetings in the menu on the left and select Live events policies.
  • By default you will find a policy called Global (Org-wide default).

  • Click on + Add to create a custom policy and give it a name, e.g. PublicEventsAllowed.
  • In this policy you activate Allow scheduling and if required also Allow transcription for attendees.
  • At Who can join scheduled live events you choose Everyone. This makes live events publicly accessible.
  • At Who can record an event the option Always record is set by default. This setting can be left as it is.
    Allow Public Live Events

Save your newly created policy. After a few minutes you should see the Public option when you create a Live Event in your Teams client under the Calendar tab.
