Additional Options for Meeting Layout
Here are some options that would be a great add for layout choices in Teams Meetings:
- Be able to split screen (vertically or horizonally) between the content that is being shared and the video feeds of people (during desktop / app sharing)
- be able to pop out the video feeds (brady bunch) from the content share so that you can have one on each monitor
- When participant list is shown and content is being shared, show the active speaker in a larger video view at the top of the participant list
- be able to show participant list and chat at the same time (people on top, chat on bottom half)

Assuming that what I am reading here is what I think I am if I could vote a few thousand times I would. A frustration for me in a meeting is the inability as the presenter or organizer to set/fix the meeting layout for all participants on it. For example I may well want to force my meeting of 10 to have me talking beside my presentation and then revert back to "The brady Bunch" view to discuss the shared documents or presentations contents. Or another common request I get is that one participant should be pinnable beside the document/ presentation for a longer discussion and then once finished whomever is speaking on the document gets their video beside the shared document. The key here is that this presentation view should be set for all who attend the meeting and not have each person set their own views. almost like a presenter override on the view.
