Hi, I have just downloaded the Teams App and am unable to share my Powerpoint on the Share Screen option. Do you have any suggestions?

@melanie1999 Hi, could be a setting in the Teams admin portal that needs to be toggled on "Allow PowerPoint sharing".

 

This is the associated support page for sharing content in a Teams meeting

Hi thanks for your help. I have given permission on my Mac but it is still not allowing me to share.

@melanie1999 Are you signed into an organization, that is not using Teams free, when using Teams? If so it could be a policy setting as mentioned in my previous reply. I have no experience using Teams on Mac so cannot give any further suggestions.
