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.
also add a highligter feature. We have to have more features presenting online - replacing our behaviour if we where presenting physical. therefore - besides the laser pointer als a highligther that is easy added and removed

Add this please!
This would be a great addition to TEAMS presentations. Please consider placing this item on the current list of items requested. We really appreciate it.

This is feature is necessary in order to have a group presentation online.
Alex Ford commented
This 100% needs to be added. I am stuck with screen sharing until this is sorted and that means no easy access to chat etc.. Surely it is a tiny feature to add.

Admins, please look at the comments. Many very recent. We really, really, really need this feature. Really.
Please add this feature. It is very frustrating to use Teams without it as it makes collaboration very difficult. Trying to describe exactly the area on the screen is a waste of time, when a participant pointer would allow it to be immediately known.

When I am working with other developers within a Teams meeting, I really need to be able to have both of us pointing to specific areas directing eyes to a particular area of the screen beig shared

Can you please prioritize this? Teaching Kindergarten it would be tremendously helpful if I can see what words or letters they are pointing to when assessing and reading. This is the one thing I wish it could do.
@Alex - its easy to understand how other things need to be prioritized, but this feature is fundamental to the nature of collaboration and interactive meetings via Teams. It's sooo frustrating and time-consuming without it. Please consider changing the priority.
We need the laser pointer for teams meetings.
This is a very useful feature. Please implement this. We had this feature in the previous screen sharing tool. I think this a high priority feature and it looks like not just for me.
Is there any progress on MS side on this demand?
These days it should be prioritized higher than earlier.

This is needed ASAP. With more IT Departments shutting down access to Request Control, it is taking longer to work with customers and explain exactly what you are wanting them to click on when explaining.
add this function please.
Sharing the presentation file should be the way to go. But without pointer for the presenter, we have to share screen instead, which is much less convenient on bad quality connections.

What features are higher priority than this?
When I have a Teams meeting lack of this feature is the only issue I really have, therefore this is the highest priority feature for me and obviously a lot of other actual users.
It is outrageous that there is no pointer on teams presentations. Even the mouse pointer would be better than nothing.
I've not seen a powerpoint presentation given in person or virtual without some form of means to direct the audeince attention to something on a slide in over 20 years.
Get this fixed.

Prioritize this now.
should have been basic function from the beginning, please prioritize
