See participants while sharing screen
Currently, participants can see others while the screen is shared. But the presenter cannot. I would like it to be able to see participants while sharing my screen.
Thank you for your feedback. The team has this request under review, we will share an update as soon as one is available.

And please add it to the web version
Hello, how can we get this feature ? It was working in Skype to see more participants when you share your screen, otherwise you don't see people's reaction to what you are showing !
I find this a critical component to meetings - to know who's available to participate in discussion/ask questions/take attendance/know who I maybe able to follow up with later. Additionally who is attending that I may not beware of not necessarily on the invite. This to name a few.
Yes this would be most helpful since that function is something I already have with Webex.

Yes this is something that would definitely be helpful.

In one way, shape, or form - I'd love to have any easy way of viewing meeting participant listing when I'm screen sharing, especially in meetings with larger (10+ user) meetings. While many users have two screens these days, having a single desktop screen or laptop monitor shared and simultaneously trying to view your participant list is very difficult.

The ability to see who is attending/participating in the meeting while doing a desktop share helps with engagement during a meeting. I can see who is muted, who's there or not. Without it, I lose track and it becomes a detractor to the overall experience as a presenter

This is a huge problem for me in transitioning from Webex!!!!

The inability to see who is in the meeting while sharing your screen is very frustrating. I cannot call on people for an answer if I don't know who is on the call.
I too find the inability to view the participant list while sharing my screen a big drawback of Teams conferencing. Thanks for bringing this up; I'd like to see this feature added and quickly.
We have to open a 2nd Team's session in a Browser to see the list of participants.

Add a pin button to the participants screen
I often run meetings and need to share my screen. I need to be able to see the participant list while sharing my screen, which is currently not an option.
