Hi everyone,

We are looking at increasing the adoption of Teams across our company.

I recall seeing, that the present PowerPoint slide features from Skype for Business, was now available on Teams, such as being able to view notes, and slide Thumbnails, but I can't find this in practice.
Is office 2016 required, or is there an administration setting that needs to be changed, or am I just mistaken?
Thanks in advance

Hi,
You can present PowerPoint files in a meeting in Microsoft Teams but there is no option as an presenter to view thumbnails and notes during the presentation.

You don't need Office 2016 installed, actually you don't need any Office installed on your computer to present PPT in Teams, all the magic is happening server-side.

There is an option to do so in Teams, While the PPT is open in teams there is a menu at the bottom to view presenter mode. Works slick. 

 

One caveat if i do this from a mac running PPT 2019 the viewer on the receiving end just gets a blank white screen. 

If I do this on my windows machine it works fine. Some sort of bug that would be nice to get fixed please.

Do you have this menu if you share your presentation in the Teams meeting?

 

I did not find it in my Teams.

@Pegasos 

Same, I don't see this option when I am presenting the ppt via teams. The only way I managed to make it work is by using 2 screens and sharing my second screen on Teams. This is not practical when you only have 1 screen
