Split Screens, Multitasking
It could be interesting to review the user interface to allow slit screens for different part of the application.
For example, having part of the UI displaying the chat window, another part allowing to go into a "channel discussion" while in the main snippet, looking at a document. Anything that could make multitasking easier.
A little like you are doing for the video conference (when minimized while working on the app), but more at large for all functionalities.
It would be good to have this so apps like onenote can be opened and viewed at the same time as the chat window instead of having to use to pop-out feature
I often work with the Teams in Teams and need to monitor channel discussions. At the same time, i need to have all my Chats on a seperate screen, so I can anwser quickly. At the moment I need to switch inside the Teams App, which is really annoying. I need the chat part to be popped out of the actual Teams App.
This would be very useful for online teaching. When you share your screen it would be nice to see the students. It's very difficult to monitor a class when you can't see them. It would also be nice to see than 9 students at a time.

that would be a fantastic enhancement - lots of times I work in multiple applications, documents.

Yes, there is many times I need to work simultaneously in one e.g. Excel and an other OneNote or other office application inside Teams. Possibility to split the UI in different windows would be a improvement for more efficient work flow.

Have a look at Visual Studio's window arrangement facilitites. This has some basic layouts predefined, but the ability to dock tabs to any window edge and pull them out into separate windows if required.
Managing projects with Teams can easily be as complex as managing a solution in Visual Studio - so equivalent sophistication is required to help users lay out their work the way *they* want it laid out.
