When sharing your screen have the ability to switch what is being shared without having to stop sharing and re-share the new screen or item. Zoom does have this feature available.
Applications that have been started during the call can't be shared anymore. They don't appear in the selection of shareable applications. Only applications that have been started beforehand can be shared. This behavior is quite unpractical in many situations. Please let us screen-share applications as we start them.
Microsoft Teams is used to train by corporations these days. The trainer needs to be able to share Both Screens while training. Some of the programs load on one screen only while three applications are open and being used during training! Please add dual screen sharing to Microsoft Teams! This way students can follow everything a trainer is doing live in both screens.
I'd like to be able to share a part of the screen (left half screen, right half screen, or draw a frame). This would be helpful when using one ultra-widescreen monitor instead of two separate monitors.

This is already possible without needing to re-share your screen. All you need to do is to select a 'Screen' instead of a 'Window' when sharing your screen. By doing this, you will be able to see any window / application / file etc that is visible on the 'Screen' which you have shared.
See attached image
Hope this helps
missing feature: need the ability to toggle between different windows while share my screen
A user shouldn't need to end a screen sharing session to swap between sharing a screen or an application. Using a large ultrawide monitor means that I can't share a "screen," so the sharing session must be ended before sharing another app or instance of a Word doc/Excel x-sheet. The ability to simply change the app you're sharing would make screen sharing much smoother and save time.
On the iPad it would be nice not to broadcast my entire screen when I want to screen share. I would like to choose which app I want to screen share in teams.
I agree with anonymous. Please update the iOS app to mirror what’s available on the web version.
Good day. My main device is an iPad Pro and I use teams on it. One of the issues I am having is the share screen. I really don’t want to have to broadcast my screen and would appreciate if we had the options to share select screens like the web version does. In the iOS app I also encountered the issue of not having videos play or the audio being heard when I am trying to share content during the video meeting with my students. This would really be handy in the iOS app. Another issue is when trying to share files from onedrive during the video meeting, my folders show up as empty and I also can’t choose to share from any other storage option on my device (Dropbox/iOS files etc) however I can post from these file storage systems in the chat box. I am not sure what the issue is but the video meeting capabilities seem very limited in the iOS app. If these could be addressed, myself and many other educators and students who use iOS devices would be appreciative.
Can the iOS app also have control permissions? for example when I share my ppt the students have an option to take control and I do not have an option to restrict/prevent them from doing that. It should also be implemented in the iOS teams app.

Hi I have been using teams for a month or 2. It is very good and the speed of dev is amazing. One issue I run into often is screen sharing, from a mac there are lots of hoops to jump through to get the permissions right. BUT even then. I usually have quite a few programs open and various screens. It is very difficult to find what I am looking for. I attach a screenshot for example. There is little open here in the shot but it is usually 3 times more. As a designer I hate offering solutions as you guys need to solve the problem... but is search possible (enter powerpoint and it finds my open presentation) or chrome and it (mmm problem I have 3 windows and 20 tabs open). Hope you can find a solution :)
Other virtual meetings have the function to share anything on a particular screen or an application (think multiple browser windows). Why does teams only allow a single window share? even to go between 2 powerpoints one must stop sharing and re-share over and over during a call....

Yes, very challenging having to stop sharing, then share again just to show a different screen. You should be able to seamlessly share different windows if you are the one sharing your screen.
