How can we make Microsoft Teams better for your classroom and staff collaboration?

Sharing Screens in Teams

In my organization we are converting from skype for business to teams. in skype we can share our screens without being on a skype call. In teams, in order to share our screens we have to be on a call in teams. It would be nice to be able to share our screen in teams without having to be on a call, similar to the way we can in skype.

    YES!! I was just coming to make this comment. You can screen share if a "Meeting" is set up, but I hate setting up a meeting just for a quick screen share. I want to be able to share screens within Chat.

    Agreed. We currently have Lync and the ability to quickly share screens without having to be in an actual meeting is a big benefit. In Teams, it appears we have to be in a meeting to be able to share screens. That takes additional time and steps to set up.
