Updated December 1, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
We are excited to announce the upcoming launch of the new webinar experience. This experience is an intuitive end-to-end webinar solution addressing key feedback received since the initial webinar launch last year and is built to scale for advanced webinars in the future. The new webinar will be found by clicking the New Meeting dropdown in the calendar app and selecting Webinar.
With the launch of the new webinar experience, we are introducing a new policy called Teams Event Policy to TAP IT Admins and TAP customers. This policy (Settings: AllowWebinars and EventAccessType) will control the new webinar experience, and the current webinar experience will be controlled by the existing Teams Meeting Policy (Settings: AllowMeetingRegistration and WhoCanRegister). As we make this transition from the current and existing webinar experience to a new one, we are giving you the option to either use the new, current/existing, or no webinar experience. When we launch the new webinar experience, this experience will by default be ON (AllowWebinars: ON).
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 86826
[When this will happen:]
The new webinar experience is targeted for rollout starting in early December (previously late November) and is expected to be completed by late December (previously early December).

2022-11-04MC How AffectIf you currently have existing webinar turned:
OFF (AllowMeetingRegistration: OFF), your organization will not have any webinar experience.
ON (AllowMeetingRegistration: ON), your organization will have the new webinar experience.
Here are all possible options in summary with existing Teams Meeting Policy and the new Teams Events Policy:
AllowMeetingRegistration: ON, AllowWebinar to OFF - Current webinar experience
AllowMeetingRegistration: ON, AllowWebinar to ON - New webinar experience
AllowMeetingRegistration: OFF, AllowWebinar to OFF - No webinar experience until the end of transition period
AllowMeetingRegistration: OFF, AllowWebinar to ON - No webinar experience
If you want to just to enable the existing webinar experience and not the new one, you need to take action and turn AllowWebinar to OFF and ensure AllowMeetingRegistration is ON.
You can configure the new events policy using Powershell cmdlets:New-CsTeamsEventsPolicy, Set-CsTeamsEventsPolicy, Grant-CsTeamsEventsPolicy, Get-CsTeamsEventsPolicy, Remove-CsTeamsEventsPolicy
If you currently leverage the flow of adding registration to a meeting by using the registration option, this experience will continue to work as is and will not be impacted by this change as long as AllowMeetingRegistration is ON. In the future, after this transition period, we will only allow use of the new webinar via the Webinar entry point or no webinar at all and we will provide notice via future MC posts of this change.
