Would it be possible to have a feature so we can open multiple main windows in teams? Similar to how Outlook can do this.

 

The use cases are if we have one as the Chat window, but then also having a second window we could navigate through the Sharepoint / Wiki pages at the same time as the chat. Especially useful when screen sharing content from say a wiki or Sharepoint in Teams and you want to maintain chat sessions in a different screen. Or copy data from planner while having another screen with Sharepoint open. 

 

Workaround such as opening Teams in browser windows, or different applications at the same time really diverts away from all the benefits of having Teams a converged platform.
