  3. Video freeze feature

    How about a freeze option on the video conferencing, for momentary freezing of your video? Let's say I want to cough (!) in a board meeting. I don't like actually stopping the video as it's an obvious hiding of what you are doing, but a quick freeze pane might make it nearly invisible.

  5. Desktop app freezes on search

    When using the search bar at the top of the desktop app window, the app always freezes up for 3 to 5 minutes. Restarting the app doesn't seem to help -- the search term is still in the search bar, and the app freezes on load.

  8. Audio freezes from conference rooms

    Audio cuts out, sometimes it looks like the video freezes as well.
    When talking in a conference call the users in a conference room with a logitech speaker puck and webcam (or a polycom speaker with video) will freeze for 1-4 seconds while they are talking.

    Users that are on the call from their desk or phone will also hear/see the problem. Users on the call calling directly from their desk or phone will never cut out/freeze.

    This problem does not happen in Skype for Business, we have switched our teleconferencing to Skype for Business after it…

    When I use TEAMs from my desktop it always freezes.

    It’s not the computer, it’s been checked. It happens to my teammates as well.

  10. MacOS freezes

    Teams for MacOS would randomly freeze.
    I can switch to it, but no windows with chats visible.
    I have to force quite it and then re-open it to use it.

    Latest MacOS 10.14.5 (18F132)
    You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.2.00.13765. It was last updated on 20/06/2019.

  13. Possibility to freeze a planner tab

    It would be great to be able to freeze a Planner tab on Teams.
    For instance, on a project where you have to wait for someone's answer or validation, and nobody should modify the tasks or the planner. There should be a way to freeze the tab for a certain amount of time, or until someone reactivates it.
    It would have no incidence on the planner itself, but just on the Teams tab.

    And why not extend this function to other teams tab ?

  14. Freezes

    Constant freezes when searching on desktop client with Mac and PC. High CPU usage for no reason. Laggy screen sharing with side bar that always interferes with remote control. I am also constantly unable to “click” on things when remotely assisting a team member, and sometimes after a few minutes, the other computer says I’m still controlling, but I am only able to view—-I lose control for no reason. All said, I have no issues with teamviewer. Plz fix this horrible app so we can all enjoy.

  15. Chat Admin & freeze chat.

    During Coronavirus and schools being shut, we are using for teaching remotely. An option for there to be an admin of a chat would be great. Also an option to ‘freeze’ the chat would be great so that the chat can only be used when needed.

  16. System freeze since update to Windows 10 1803

    Since updating Windows 10 to 1803 my system often completely freezes when switching to Teams. (ThinkPad L580 (CPU: Intel i5-8250U with integrated Intel UHD 620 graphics))
    I have to do a hard reset, sometimes it is also possible to go to standby and wake the notebook back up again. Is anybody having the same issues?

    I think it is related to this issue: https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/8gf68w/chromefreezeswindowsafterapril_update/

  18. Teams freezes when using the camera in the conference room.

    Video freezes then cuts out, sometimes audio also cuts out. The application does not respond, it is not possible to close it. After closing with the task manager, it sometimes still bugs afterwards.

  19. Teams freezes if "Logitech Group" USB Conference Webcam is attached

    Whenever I plug in the "Logitech Group" conference system (webcam/microphone, https://www.logitech.com/de-de/product/conferencecam-group) into my Macbook Pro (Catalina 10.15.3) via USB, MS teams freezes and I cannot start any call. Only unplugging fixes the freeze.

    Basically I cannot use our video conferencing system with Teams, despite it being advertised as being compatible. Using other Apps on my Macbook to record videos works fine, so definitely a Teams problem.

    Also discussed here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/usb-plug-of-the-quot-logitech-group-quot-will-cause-teams-to/m-p/1120205

  20. In a meeting using an external USB communication device, Teams freezes

    Joined a meeting with a device attached (either a Jabra usb, hdmi, etc.) Try to change audio/mic to use the device and the app controls freeze. No longer able to unmute, navigate, exit, etc.
