M365 Changelog: Introducing the ability to duplicate an existing webinar

MC709268 – Currently with webinars, you are unable to duplicate a webinar and create a new webinar based off an existing one. This can be time consuming if organizers would like to schedule multiple events that are similar to one another. To simplify event creation Microsoft Teams is introducing the ability to create a new webinar by duplicating the information for an existing scheduled one. Information includes a webinar’s details, presenters, theming, and more. The organizer can also choose to edit and update the information as needed for their new webinar.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 375177

When this will happen:

Targeted Release: Microsoft will begin rolling out late February 2024 and expect to complete by early March 2024.

Standard Release and GCC: Microsoft will begin rolling out early March 2024 and expect to complete by late March 2024.

How this will affect your organization:

Webinar organizers in your tenant can now duplicate webinars from existing scheduled webinars. Organizers can do this by right clicking on the webinar object in the Teams Calendar and then clicking on “Duplicate event.” Organizers can also duplicate an event by clicking “Duplicate event” in the details page when a user double clicks on the webinar in the calendar.
