Previously our teachers would share their screen from their laptops while also viewing the participant view on their iPad to monitor their students.

 

Apparently a recent update to the teams app has taken away the ability to switch to the participant view when someone is presenting/sharing.  Is this an oversight?  Is anyone else seeing the same behavior?  Any workarounds?

Thanks!

@Scott Nourse Have you figured out how to switch back to participants view yet?  This just started happening to us.

@CJThomas it looks like Microsoft made some changes in the latest update of Teams for iPad. Hopefully they give back this feature next update.
