Enable annotation of PowerPoint presentations within the meeting
Skype for Business enabled annotation of PowerPoint slides while sharing them in the meeting. We depend on this feature to facilitate interactive meetings, workshops and trainings. Please consider adding this feature to Teams as well.
I hear this is already planned for coming at some point; I too request it to be reprioritized higher because of the impact it has on training our remote employees virtually.
I understand this will be added in the later updates of Teams, however I would urge this be pushed forward due to the need for interactivity within virtual meetings. Already this is causing issues with our Skype customers due to the lack of features available in Team - Skype.
I have a number of items I would love to add to my presentation to conform with blended learning, and also for those that a visually impaired, so need a voice to the text. just bringing a presentation together makes a big difference to your audiance.

I've been using Skype for years and found the 'Annotation' tools brilliant to use for an interactive virtual training session. Since using 'Teams' all of the interactive features have dropped off.
I really hope Annotations such as highlighter, polls, free text come to 'Teams' or we will be moving off this platform.

Just did a PowerPoint presentation in MS Teams, went to use the laser pointer and it wasn't there! Disaster!! Please enable the annotation and laser point features as soon as possible.
