All or multiple participants sharing their screens

New Contributor

I was wondering if there is an option (or if one is under development) allowing all or multiple participants to share their screens. 

This is a useful use case for training, where students are carrying out some tasks (e.g. on a specific application) and a supervisor can check what they are doing or if they need help. 

Thanks.

Hi, at the moment it is only possible for one participant at a time to share their screen.  

 

There is a backlogged Teams User Voice open here for this https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17706223-multiple-screen-shari... so you could add your name to this.

@PeterRising thanks for letting me know. I have upvoted that feature request.

@PeterRising Is there any news on this?  Our team used to do paired programming as well as side-by-side programming until we all had to work remotely.  Teams has gotten us through a lot of the challenges of working remotely, but we have not been able to work as efficiently as we used to.

 

Being able to share screens with my dev partner(s) would really allow us to go back to developing as if we were sitting side-by-side or even in the same room.  "Share screens with my dev partner(s)" means they share their screen with me through Teams and I do share mine with them---at the same time.

 

Please let me know if this is possible or at least in the works.

 

Thank you,
