Ability for meeting participants to draw on shared screen
Participants in a a meeting with a shared screen should have the ability to draw (with their mouse or touch pen) on the shared screen. E.g. if a PowerPoint is being presented, participants would have their designated color to draw with (to distinguish who is drawing) and a mouse pointer in the same color. The could then point and draw for the other participants in the meeting to see. This would be similar to a whiteboard, only it would be for drawing on top of a shared screen.
Thanks for providing the feedback. This feature is in our backlog. We’ll update when we have more details to share.

agree, this is an absolute must have - until such time MS Teams has no chance of hoping to compete with zoom or slack in this new work-from-home environment. I cannot fathom what Microsoft might be thinking leaving this in a backlog since pre-covid days...
This needs to be added ASAP

Hello, we use screensharing for support purposes, and this feature would be extremely useful

Microsoft, you guys really need to hurry up. How can such a basic feature not be implemented yet? At least a laser pointer should be available. Microsoft Teams is basically useless for meetings about technical topics.
2020 the year with the most Online Meetings ever and microsoft has this garbage tool. Sorry but this is unacceptable.
The lack of this feature makes it almost unusable for me and my team. Because of this reason we decided to leave MS teams completely.
This is too important as a feature to let it sleep in your backlog. No update for almost a year, you have lost a lot of customers because of that...
More education establishments are using teams to teach remotely and the ability to annotate on a PowerPoint is essential! Please rush this feature!

Any update as to when this is coming out of backlog?
users migrated from slack commented
I echo gjo's sentiment - really important for collaboration. We often do our calls through slack for this reason

It's a marvelous feature.
Do you have any update on the status of your backlog about this feature?
Really need this feature. Switched to teams a few months ago and now considering moving platforms so we can have this feature.
Please do, this is really important for collaboration.
This is the reason we often switch to Slack, in case we need to share screen and collaborate
Don't understand while these feature is not in progress?
We plan to migrate from Slack to Teams. This missing feature is the no one showstopper for developers.

Almost a year. Any details to share? The pressure here to switch to Zoom is becoming bigger and bigger because of these kinds of features.
Using something like ZoomIt works, but is not the experience a novice user wants these days.

We are currently using Slack but would like to migrate to Teams. The drawing and highlighting on a shared screen is the only thing preventing us from the migration.

as we all enter yet another (last??) lockdown, this feature is vital. As a small company, we have taken the big step of adopting Teams throughout all the business but we still have calls with Zoom users. Its almost an embarrassment when they have calls where they annotate the screen. Its such a useful feature. Not sure why it hasn't appeared in Teams??? Surely you can let us know when it will appear...
