Microsoft has rolled out a new feature in Teams: Webinars, which include a registration link.
Webinars provide the tools to schedule your webinar, register attendees, run an interactive presentation and analyze attendee data for effective follow-up. Webinars is more controlled than regular Teams meetings and the participants have clear roles: One or several experts (the presenters) share their ideas or provide training to an audience (the attendees).
How to Set up a Webinar
