Presenter View in Teams Presentation Sharing

From Microsoft Corporation

MC229331, Stay Informed, Published date: Dec 10, 2020
New feature, User impact

The presenter, in control, can now see a presenter view during Teams Presentation Sharing in a meeting.

Key Points:

  • Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 68903
  • Timing:
    • Standard release and GCC tenants: start rolling out in mid-January and complete by the end of January
    • GCC-High and DoD tenants: start rolling out in February and complete by mid-February
  • Action: Review and assess

How this will affect your organization:

Once the presenter selects a PowerPoint file from the Teams Share Tray, Presenter View is opened automatically. The presenter can see the current slide, the slide notes, and a thumbnail strip of all the slides in the deck for easy ad-hoc slide navigation.

This view is private to the presenter in control. If another presenter clicks “Take Control”, presenter view will be opened for the second presenter, while the previous presenter will be switched to the audience view without any access to the slide notes and the thumbnail strip.

Note: Presenter View only works in meetings that open in a separate window – you’ll need to enable the “new meeting experience” in Teams desktop app setting.

What you need to do to prepare:

You may want to update your training and documentation as appropriate.
