Participants and chat visible together during meeting
Enable seeing participants and the chat window at the same time so you can manage sidebar info during a meeting
Absolutely agree. Vital when running a meeting/delivering any kind of remote learning - need to be able to see both at the same time.
very much needed

We can have it shown in upper and lower block, on the right hand side

There is another idea on this (with more votes), please vote here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38722834-when-in-a-teams-meeting-i-would-like-to-see-both
This is currently available in Lync/Skype and loss of simultaneous participant/chat window viewing in Teams seems like a significant step backwards

This is more important with new functionality such as "raise hand". Currently in meetings I organize, people are discussing in Chat which means I have to pay attention there, but then I miss "hand raise" things because that's only shown in the Participants view.
