Schedule Webinar (new Event) with the Webex Scheduler for Outlook

The interface on the website for scheduling meetings and events is very similar, but at the moment only meetings can be scheduled via Outlook. Most of our meetings are created directly in Outlook. We've set up custom training and workflows on how to schedule events in the Classic Event Center and this question has come up multiple times as it will help streamline the process.
This will also address the issue of attendees/panelists not realizing they have to open and accept a calendar attachment on an email invitation for an event. This is especially true for people outside of our organization.

    I'm so happy to see work on this move forward. I do have the dropdown menu in the Webex app's Meeting page to Schedule a webinar! Yay!

    However, when I click on that, it takes me to my Webex site's Classic View on which I need to click on the Modern View option to be able to schedule the webinar. So, we're not quite there yet!

    Let me know if there is some setting on our control hub that would keep the "Schedule a webinar" option in the Webex app only available through these extra steps.

    I'm still super excited to see this option evolve into a seamless function! Thank you!

    This now says "shipped" as the status. Is it only shipped for those using Office 365 and not for on-premise Exchange using the Webex Scheduler? Mine says it is version 43.2.0 but I don't have the Webinar button.

    This is a huge one. Without this, we're still using the legacy Events platform because we can use the Outlook address book to choose large groups of recipients. We can't really copy and paste 900+ email addresses in the participants list of a new Event.
