We're new to teams and I'm trying to use it for our staff meetings to replace GoToMeeting. We have 3 locations and the presentations take place out of 1 of the locations so we only have a camera there. I've been doing some testing but for the other two locations, they see a split screen with the video from the main location and then just a circle with the initials of the other location. How do I get it so that the 2 remote branches only see the camera for the main location, not have it be a split screen?

Microsoft are currently working on it! See this uservoice

Would recommend you vote! Good thing it’s coming it’s much needed!

Hope that answers your question!

Great, thanks. Is there a different way I can do this so that the other 2 locations see the video from the main office? Is there a way to actually schedule a web meeting instead of just doing video calls?

What is it you are trying to present? Do you need to show a PowerPoint? Does the camera need to be on? Do you need to see other staff currently?

You can use the web browser or a mobile to join a meeting - but the experience will be the similar

We would like to use the camera to capture the projector screen and presenter, so the PowerPoint would be on the screen.

You schedule a meeting via the meetings tab! Any participant can click the share button in the middle of the screen and choose a PowerPoint to share in the meeting! This PowerPoint will show in the whole screen!

I don't have a meetings tab? I had seen that elsewhere online and it looked like you had to have hosted Exchange for that to be there but I could be wrong. We're migrating to hosted Exchange within a couple of weeks so I guess we'll see if it's there after that.

Ah ok.

Instead of doing a video to film a projector why not just have the user share the PowerPoint in the meeting and talk over it?. You can do this through the Teams client

If it’s going to be just a presentation and not live voice interaction you could always use live events. This will allow a presentation all from the main office that streams to the others. The downfall is there is no real-time audio during these but it’s great for presenting to an audience. You could always do s follow up call for QA or discussion but anyway it’s an option.
