This has not been my experience. I can share my screen just fine using
the Teams client. I cannot, however, share system audio, and the
microphone, while it will work initially, will stop working if you
adjust the volume through Teams (as opposed to using the Cinnamon
volume applet).

What everyone said: it works, but it will look and act differently from
all other apps and you just have to adapt to Microsoft's off-kilter
design to use it.

As Eric S. Fraga said, turn off most or all notifications. I have a
company cell phone, so I installed the Teams app on that, and use the
phone for all my audio and notifications, just using the Linux app to
display shared video.

FWIW, my Logitech webcam works fine with Teams.
