I have been on the phone with Microsoft support for hours on this very issue. At the moment, they have the ability to switch accounts to "Island" mode where you can use both Skype and Teams simultaneously. And it seems to work for the moment.
BUT! He mentioned on the phone that the next release will remove the ability for them to choose Island mode, and we will be forced to use Teams only and they will need to be registered as a guest in order to screen share.
This would be ok if *everyone* was migrated, but he also mentioned that larger organizations would not be migrated until a later time. They are force-migrating based on org size.
As an owner of a small consulting firm, we have many clients (and some that have 10,000+ employees) that we need to stay in contact with. Forcing us to MS Teams and disabling our ability to work with our customers is ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE!
Either enable MS Teams to screen share with external users (with or without skype) OR allow us to continue to use Islands mode until everyone is migrated to Teams (including large organizations).
ARE YOU LISTENING MICROSOFT??
