    It's not just about Zoom. Pretty much every conferencing system I've used in the last 10 years has this feature and it's essential.

    If you want your remote experience to approach that of a F2F meeting (delivering a demo, reviewing some marketing materials, training a new team member, etc.) I need to be able to highlight, annotate, draw, add text.... on the fly, over anything that I'm sharing.

    Think of it this way; imagine you're training someone on a new software tool. They share their screen so you can see them working through an exercise and they get stuck. Do you really want to be saying, "Press the 'Open dialogue' button. No, on the left of the screen. No, the other left. Up a bit - no, too far...."...???? NO! You simply want to highlight the button you want them to press.

    I do this all the time with customers and partners on Zoom. Before that, we used Join.Me...

    I was speaking on a webinar yesterday and was sooo frustrated because I couldn't draw a little picture to illustrate the point I was making in response to question... and I know how easy it is in these other systems b/c I use them all the time!

    There's a lot of great stuff in Teams, but this is a real let-down. I have provided the use cases in this mail in the hope that someone from the MSFT product team will read it and use the use-cases to design something amazing.

    Oink-flap. Oink-flap - oh look!

    I think it's all been said - this is not optional, really.
