Share pointer while screen sharing
TeamViewer screen sharing has a nice feature to share pointer. So when other meeting participants wants to show the presenter something on screen, the presenter can see where they pointing. It's really useful feature.
This request has been accepted by the feature team and is in the queue.
It isn’t the neatest, but as a workaround you can request control in order to do this.
I’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.

Zoom's implementation where there is a flag that sticks the user's name in it works well.
Can't emphasize enough how nice and useful this would be in Teams!!! Makes a *huge* difference to enable remote users to interact with others in this regard.
For sophisticated collaborative work this small feature is really essential. The more the larger the goup/team. Requesting control is not a feasible workaround. We used to work with quite a lot of different tools like Skype, Skype for Business (Lync), MS Teams, Mikogo, Zoom, Google Hangout, TeamViewer / Blizz. Since the only tool ofering this 'pointing' feature is TeamViewer, but TeamViewer is not a chat/communication tool, we often ended up using Skype for the communication and TeamViewer for Screensharing. Which is kind of embarrassing.

There are similar requests for Skype for Business with ~4.000 votes. This topic is still very important, since other vendors offer this feature. Please see:
