(Updated) Presenter View in Teams Presentation Sharing


Date: March 9, 2021



Updated March 09, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

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


When This Will Happen

Key Points:

  • Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 68903
  • Timing:
    • Standard release tenants: start rolling out in mid-January and complete by the end of January Complete
    • GCC, GCC-High and DoD tenants: start rolling out at the end of March (previously February) and complete by early April (previously 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.
