Moderate the Q&A in a live event in Teams

Note: Live events are a preview feature in Microsoft Teams. Enjoy your sneak peek!

In a Teams live event, attendees can interact with producers and presenters through the Q&A, if the organizer set it up when they organized the event.

Open or close the Q&A

When a live event is created with a Q&A option, the Q&A is open by default and attendees can start asking questions even if the event hasn't started. These questions are only visible to the moderators until they announce them to all the attendees.

To open the Q&A, click Q&A on the right side of the screen, then click Open. Click Closed to close it again.
