support for sharing MacOS full screen apps in other Spaces (virtual screens/desktops)
Most Mac users work with fullscreen apps when they are serious to focus on something. A full screen app gets it's own Space. When using MS With Teams functionality as is, you can only share non-fullscreen windows that are on the first Space (Desktop 1) or share all of Desktop 1. When I work with MS Teams, I have to fiddle with my windows to make it work. Sometimes, I'll have the window shared, but then click to make it full screen which drops it from the share. In either case this cases meeting delays.
Instead I'd like to share any Space (which includes full-screen apps) to reduce the window management I need to do with teams.
It is basic functionality that screen sharing of windows should work while using Teams in Full Screen mode on the Mac. Please fix this MS!

I find it *very* annoying that, while sharing my screen from a space with a fullscreen app, whenever i move the mouse to the very top of the screen (this is where the menu lives), Teams automatically switches back to the space where Teams is on. This means i have to be very careful to *not* let the cursor touch the very top of the screen when trying to access the menu bar.

This is a big deal. One reason I'll keep on using zoom

This should be getting more votes, Its very time consuming.
For anyone in any doubt as to what this means, when you fullscreen an application in macos, it creates a different desktop you can move between by swiping on the mouse. Windows has this concept also being able to have multiple desktops. However, once you do this to an app in macos, you can't share that app or indeed the screen with that app displayed as it doesn't share, which means you have to share an app whilst it is windowed. Not great if you are trying to share a fullscreen remote session with someone.

Yet another MS winning product brought down by poor coding. The last upgrade made things even crazier, with MS keeping a floating call tab with a minimise button that does not work if clicked, and is in the "wrong" side of the box, intrusive notification banners, and messing up further if opening a chat in a separate window from another space.

Surprised this one isn't getting more votes, as I would like to share any of my Spaces. When I have an external monitor, Teams recognizes that as a 2nd desktop. But not a Full Screen application or additional Space.
