possibility to open teams on Multiple windows (especially when using multiple screens)
As a Ms teams professional user (especially if using multiple screens), i'd like to have the possibility to open different features on different windows so i can multitask simple way using the ALT+TAB feature for example.
1. Chatting with a colleague and need to copy/past an information from another chat without losing the focus on the conversation
2. i am on a meeting, and i want to let it open on a different screen and open a chat (or simply the calendar view to see next meetings)
3... etc etc...

Please roll out this multiple windows functionality asap. It's a huge reason I do not succeed in "selling" it with partners.

able to detach the participants video window and/or chat and/or presentation and be able to drag them to what ever monitor you have.

Multiple screens active while meeting in a Teams meeting feature is available when used Crestron hardware or Logitech ralley hardware (even may be with other hardware), Crestron or Logitech might have done customization. why Microsoft is not able to provide this feature which is already proven in Skype for business.
why not take advantage of the ultra wide width to show the presentation and the participants side by side? The main monitor vendor has a feature to split the display. Even than that, there are a lot of users with multiple display.
We need this too. Especially when you share your screen and want to see all participants.
This is one of the primary reasons I use Zoom instead of Teams when I can. Monitor 1: full screen video of all participants, human engagement. Monitor 2: full screen of the current presentation or whatever screenshare is happening.
(Plus Zoom isn't built on Electron so it doesn't fry my CPU during vidcalls but that's a separate matter!)
I would very much like this feature, so I can be viewing the 'shared screen' on one monitor, and looking at the peoples video feeds on the other monitor.
webex has implemented this feature, and I really like it.
Yes, I aggree that conference app liked Teams needed to have multiple Windows.
Our organization which have about 35.000 employees really need multiple windows to coordinate and compare between 2 or more people.
We really need this for our manager and director where we hold event in lot of different area.
Frequently have a need to share multiple screens during a meeting. Need to have two views at the same time. It would be great to be able to have one meeting running with a screen share, and if another screen share was needed, you could open a second meeting isntance and share screen only, no audio.
Important feature to multitiask! Sometimes you open a document from a channel that you need data from, or even editing, but you want to check something from a meeting, or from a chat, for example. Now everytime you change the Teams tab you close what you have at that moment, so you spend lots of time navigating between tabs, reopening documents... Not practical nor efficent at all.
It would be nice a "open in new window" option to open a document, or a Teams tab (Team, chat, calendar, ...)

In Skype I can just drag another document into the sharing screen, so that we can look at numerous things - instead I have to stop sharing, share again, choose another screen - this is very time-consuming.

I need the ability to share content (or view shared content if I'm not the presenter) on one screen, and view the participants in another screen, to ensure colleagues or clients are following along. Body language is important and really hard to pick up on when they're in a tiny box at the bottom of the screen.
From Anonymous - "Need to have an option to share multiple screens at once. In my company, each user has three screens which we use most of the time. It is difficult to present when I am required to minimize the items from these three screens into one screen."
I agree - we work a lot with source and working documents and need to share both. They are too small in a split screen to work with efficiently. We would love to be able to share two monitors of data onto a participants' multi-monitor setup.

Teams needs to add the ability to view the participants and interact with them, other than verbally, whilst presenting a powerpoint or keynote presentation in presentation mode.
In addition, animations on Keynote do not work in presentation mode on teams
This feature is critical to managing a meeting while presenting content. I need to be able to monitor who's in the call and put people on mute, while sharing or viewing a presentation on a different screen. Bouncing between the two disrupts the meeting. Can't wait for the functionality!
While waiting for this feature to be added, a workaround is to join the meeting on two different apps: one can be the desktop app and the other one can be a browser. Right?
I need to be able to see my students and monitor them on one screen, while presenting from my other screen. We need presentations to pop out or vice versa. Not having this is going to be really hard.

How come dual monitor feature is available when used Crestron/Logitech/ other Microsoft Certified solutions (which includes hardware)?? Tested using a PC with Dual Displays- while share content is initiated from our side, able to separate Presentation to Display-1 and Video layout to Display-2. But this is not happening when presentation is coming from far end.

It would be great to be able to edit notes or files in teams while watching a presentation in a Teams meetings, by using 2 monitors (rather than having the presentation turn into a window so small as to be useless). My understanding is that Teams doesn't support the ability to use multiple monitors yet.
