Our clients are deploying a large number of Teams Room Systems (SRS v2), and we have noticed that the Layout button while in a call does not function the same way as in Skype for Business Mode, compared to Teams Mode. You can see an example photo (Skype for Business Mode), and video (Teams Mode). Note this is when only one screen has been connected. Is there a plan to have the same functionality added in Teams mode using the SRS v2 systems? This poses an issue in rooms where there is a local PC connected to the content input as an always on source, as you can not have stand alone gallery mode when in a call.

@Steven Collierthanks for the reply! So it looks like they have added pinning, but wondering if they will be just adding the gallery view layout (without content showing locally or remotely) to that existing layout button for Teams Room Systems, as that would be the most important thing :).

Just tested the pinning functionality, it would not full screen a participant if there was content being shared in the room, it would only pin them on the content + participants view if there were more than 4 participants.

@Timothy_Guerin "this" being a layout showing video only even when someone is sharing content?
If so, no set date, its in our backlog but something we have not yet scheduled. Should be doable in H2 of this CY.
Also just because SfB had a capability it does not mean its "easy" for us to implement in Teams. Teams is an all new, born in the cloud, experience, built on new technologies, and with a new cloud service. So we need to implement the capability in a new code base.
@Sohail Tariq let's look at this in the backlog please.

BTW we do not recommend the "have a standalone PC or other always on source always connected to MTR HDMI ingest". This leads to really poor user experiences.

@Ilya Bukshteynin the real world this is unlikely - we have a number of always active Wireless screens devices , Pano , Clickshare or a PC and this is a major flaw for us - local preview is always showing main screen in the room - just need the ability like in the skype UI to turn off the HDMI input this allows the full screen to be utilised for video and allowing you to then PIN a specific one in main screen
currently local users see a Pano or ClickShare default screen when not content sharing
Integration with exiting local wireless solutions is one of the key selling points for MTR as our room solution
