    Oh, my, yes! Anyone doing group facilitation and especially any kind of training really needs to be able to see both. To increase interactivity, good trainers periodically ask for a show of hands while they continue to monitor the chat. This isn't a nice to have, it is VERY much a need to have!

    While we're at it, why can;'t you allow the chat and the participant windows to "float" the way they do in Zoom? That is such a convenient feature - to put them in different places on different screens.

    The engineering team is continuing to work on adding support for multiple accounts on desktop clients. We will first launch support for 1 work/school account and 1 personal account so users can enjoy Teams for work and personal side-by-side. Windows and MacOS. Support for multiple work accounts is still being worked on and will come at a later date.

    You can track status via the roadmap here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=68845.

    Thanks!

    I'm shocked that Teams is implemented in the manner it is. The paradigm seems to be that all participants are within one organization, and that maybe sometimes people outside might need to participate (with diminished functionality).

    MS needs to come into the 20th century - most organizations have "metaorganizations" at their interfaces with others (think Defense Dept. and EPA.) That particular metaorganization can have 10-15 or more separate organizations (contractors, other agencies, etc.) involved and in need of virtual collaboration. Right now, each organization has a separate Teams implementation, but to have true and full common functionality, they would have to create an entirely new organizational identity, meaning new individual emails, MSTeams accounts, etc. - something that none of their IT Security people will allow them to do.

    As a trainer/facilitator working across a variety of organizations, MSTeams is pretty limited right now. I can't even have participants annotate a simple map indicating where they're from - something that is trivial in Zoom.

    When DOD OKs the use of Zoom Govt., there will be a stampede to Zoom unless MS acts to address this fundamental design issue.
