Is it possible with MS teams to use two monitors in a MS team call. The webcam video of the attendees can be on one screen and the shared screen content (the elektronic Scrum board) on the other monitor.

Not currently no. There are a handful of requests for different things surrounding meetings and multi window / pop out window etc. microsoftteams.uservoice.com

Thnx for your quick answer. I will check the tickets in microsoftteams.uservoice.com

 

Is this functionality available in Skype for Business?

Been awhile since I used Skype for business meetings. I want to say it worked the same but I’m sure we can get someone that uses it often to chime in soon.

Hi djvankes,

This uservoice may be the one you are looking for. It is sharing all screens like Skype for Business.

I’ve voted! Hope this helps!

Hi,

Yes that is possible to to in a Skype for Business meeting. If you hover with the mouse over the small video window you will see a small icon above the video with a arrow. That will allow you to "Pop out the video gallery".

When you are a presenter in a Teams meeting and sharing your desktop you are able to move the video window to another screen. I guess it will come for attendees too.

I would REALLY like to see the meeting presentation on ONE screen and the conference room on another. Can this be done? Work from home, that would be a great help! @djvankes

@djvankes i know from desktop app it is not possible. But to do the workaround you have to follow below steps:

1. Screen 1 : Join your meeting from desktop application

2. Screen 2 : Open teams web application and join same meeting from there

 

This way in 2 screen you can see choose video in one and presentation in other. Make sure to not join with audio/video in one of the screen.

That's a great workaround, @nidhi1591, thank you so much!

@djvankes - Yes you can and is a perfect way to share content whilst still seeing the team. Once you share expand teams on the original screen to see the teams call full screen

@nidhi1591 Is indeed how i do it. Now with Edge Chromium you can install teams as a second app so its even more easy.  Also a good way if you want to open different teams accounts

What lots of us trying to achieve is to share multiple monitor content,  so the meeting participants see all monitors of the presenter. @nidhi1591
