@adam deltinger - is it just me or is this an absolute own-goal on the part of MSFT?
It's really not acceptable to have to have a third party annotation tool. I use Zoom for all my external meetings (and about half of my internal meetings) precisely because I can annotate.
Anyone know where we can get a campaign together and get this feature added?

@stevesandrio good suggestion. Here's another. Just use Zoom until Microsoft fixes this.

@DAmmar2370 Please take a look at Dynamics Remote Assist which integrates seamlessly w/ Teams and runs on Droid devices/Iphones and Hololens.

I absolutely agree. The only way to do that is to share the whole desktop and use Pen option in power point. @SE_TCH

@MikeWilcox the use case is a different one. We actually use remote assist with the Hololens setup and it works ok. But the use case of the TO is to annotate a screen in front of you. Any additional equipment besides the mouse is in the way

I figured out how to annotate in Powerpoint. Just share the Powerpoint as a window in Microsoft Team, not by clicking Browse and finding the file. It is till smooth and easy. MS teams detects there is a window, or a tab, open anyway.
You can access the annotation pens from the bottom left corner.
For me it does the job for the time being.

The issue with annotating in PowerPoint is that it allows only the presenter to do that. In WebEx and other tools the participants can annotate too, and also use the pointer tool - how can that be achieved in Teams? The whole point of meeting technology is to enable interaction between people and so far it seems that Teams is far behind in that.
