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.
Thank you for your continued feedback. We have not forgotten about this ask. This feature remains on our backlog. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
A must have ! Please put in the a sprint very very soon, that's the top 1 reason to not use Teams

I frequently provide remote technical support and also participate in remote pair/mob programming. This feature is desperately needed to help assist people navigating their computers.
Once upon a time Microsoft had the practice of "eating your own dogfood" as Bill Gates put it. Does the Teams team not collaborate using their own app? Being able to draw on the shared screen is essential to collaboration. Sadly, when I have real work to do, I go back to Slack. Teams is just something the guys in charge make me use.
Very important - especially with different language participants. It's not really a meeting without this, you could change its name to "Presentation"
This feature would be a gamechanger for our trainings!
It would be perfect if:
- it also allows to write and put "stamps" (hearts, star shapes etc) on the shared screen
- the moderator can activate/deactivate the function
- the moderator can clear all annotations and move them around
- the moderator can take screenshots of what was done that are automatically stored in the chat
Putting this item on the roadmap would be a great way to start 2021 ;)

All of your competitors have this feature during a time where many people are beginning to learn this new way of doing business. Get this feature out and hold onto your marketshare.
There are lot of requests coming from end users on this feature as it is so effective in WebEx. Especially users working on engineering drawings it is very useful. Request MS team to prioritize and share the timelines. Thanks a lot.
This would be a great feature!!!
Don't forget to allow meeting owner to turn it off or on (or presentor)
Presenter should be able to annotate on screen while sharing the content

PLEASE... This is desperately needed and it's been three years!
"Click on that thing that looks like an arrow in a box, no, over, down, up to the right, no by the... ugh." All day every day. This is such a huge feature that's missing.
Most importantly. Look at how Slack does this. There is rarely any value to leave the annotation on the screen for any length of time. Especially drawn lines. You just want to circle something to draw attention and then have the circled item fade away. In Zoom you have to constantly clear the drawings. It's irritating.
Try Zoom to get some ideas...
"Backlog"???? So not even in the roadmap as Dev? You need to do better.
That would be great. Slack provides that great feature. It really faciliates online meetings.
Any updates on this?
yes... it's absolutely necessary
@alex Any updates? There has been a whole year and we saw nothing!
This is a must-have feature for engineering teams that collaborate over teams.

It would be a Benefit for most of the meetings especially for design engineers for clear communication if you provide annotation option while sharing the screen. it was very useful option while we were using Cisco Webex. please do consider this request and do the needful

Annotation on shared screen is an important feature and really very much useful on meetings like Cisco, I request to you add in Teams
