        FAQs

        What exactly does it imply when Teams is in presenter mode?

        Presenter View for Microsoft PowerPoint presentations is now available in meetings hosted by Microsoft Teams. Presenters in Teams may view the notes associated with their slides and the slides scheduled to appear, but meeting attendees cannot.

        Before we have the meeting, is it possible for me to make someone a presenter in Teams?

        Make a presenter out of an attendee by hovering over their name. You will see a three-dots symbol. Use the three-dots icon to select Make a presenter and follow the onscreen instructions.

        What may be seen in the PowerPoint presentation on MS Teams when the program is set to presenter view?

        Presenter view allows you to watch your presentation together with your speaker notes on one computer (for example, your laptop), while the audience views the presentation without the notes on a second display.

        Is it possible to have two presenters at the same time within Microsoft Teams?

        You can have several presenters on your live streams. During the event, each presenter can provide their own voice, material (through screen sharing), or live video (by webcam or camera). However, this capability is only available if the event is being prepared in Teams (as opposed to an external platform).

        Can I make changes to a PowerPoint presentation while I’m presenting it on Microsoft Teams?

        You won’t have to interrupt the current slide presentation to make changes to your PowerPoint slide. Therefore, the audience won’t be able to tell if you’ve merely added anything new to the presentation slide or fixed something there.
