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 feature remains on the backlog, while we work on other high priority Meetings features.
It's such a basic tool (seeing the pointer during a PP) , I can't believe this hasn't been added. I'm chatting away and I see my pointer, unaware that my audience does not. As a trainer, it's vital for me to be able to highlight while presenting
Absolutely, its annoying to ask always for control so that the presenter can see my mouse hovering over the screen.
any update on this feature
Please provide update - backlog update is from January 2020.... and it is a MUST for our new way of working - please prioritise
can we have permissions applied to the feature via meeting options? like whether attendees or guests can access the feature during meetings.
can we have the option to track in the admin portal to determine if users enable or use this feature during meeting too?
this should be a BASIC feature: pointer, highliner (with differents color), private mask.
The fact that this feature is still not implemented after so many years speaks for itself... A company dedicated to UX, with huge UX teams, and not even capable of prioritizing this, that's a shame.
For me this is a good reason to *not* choose Teams, and to switch to Slack.
Yes please. This is very much needed.
The new functionality to share a PPT directly from Teams is great - Previously I had to use a 2 screen setup and share the whole screen (with occasional blunders!).
However we really need the Laser Pointer function to work!
I use this as a Technical Trainer training aircraft engineers, as an Covid alternative to a classroom based course.
THIS IS A MUST!
Please add this - must have for remote training using browser/cloud-based tools.
Absolutely necessary! We have emojis but not a pointer? Would be nice if priority of this feature was re-assessed considering all of the remote training being done currently and all of the comments expressing the need.

I have fragile CAD files I use to present the project. It is really a pain to give control instead of only having a red dot (laser pointer) for conversation purposes.
Definitely a must have!
This item should be simple enough to pull into development. Over a year since it was added to the backlog...low hanging fruit!
we need the pointer option when presenting in teams by loading the document/ppt to teams+
please implement this (not via powerpoint, but native in teams, and in the teams WEB APP, not the native thing)
Adding my vote for this feature. We need this daily!
