To increase productivity during your Team meeting, you will also see Microsoft Whiteboard option. This will let you and your co-workers share space for taking notes or drawings during the meeting. This is really cool, especially since everyone can collaborate at once. Please note that during screen sharing, your entire screen will be visible and the sharing area will have a red line.
