  1. macos permission overview

    Hello,

    Other applications will have a general page reviewing macos system access. TeamViewer does this beautifully. The GUI version is under System Preferences - Security and Privacy - Accessibility. For instance, we had to delay a meeting this morning because someone could not share their screen. This was an accessibility option and someone had to restart.

    It would be ideal if it could query full disk access (for attachments), microphone, camera, screen recording.

  3. Starting in background on mac os

    Please add the "Start in background" for macos.

    If you start up your computer in the morning and open everything I still want to focus on my work in e.g. terminal.
    Teams is the most annoying when starting up, trying to get the focus 3 times in a row until it is satisfied ...
    I want it to start up and be quite until I need it

  6. Manually setting a proxy connection for Teams?

    Hello!
    is there a way to manually set a proxy for Teams? I learned from other forums that Teams doesn't use the general system settings, which I also noticed by trying it myself.
    I'm working behind a corporate VPN. I can use the browser version of Teams, as the settings coincide with the settings of the browser.

    Thanks in advance!

  9. My USB microphone is not working in Teams...works fine in zoom!

    My USB microphone is not working in Teams. The volume is turned all the way down in system preferences, can not be turned up (if I try: it fall back to 0).

    I have tried to turn off permissions in system preferences, shut the Mac down and rebooted - turned the permission on again. Nope - still not working.

  11. Give MacOs Background Filters

    The background blur on iMac was enabled, but it was gone on the next day. Even though it was there, it won't allow me to use any other filters - only blur. Please give us MacOs-ers the background filter feature back.

  12. Full week view not just daily on iPad app

    On the iPad you only get the day on the left, scrollable. Would be great and useful to see the entire week, as is possible on the Mac desktop app.

  14. Stop New Outlook for Mac from using ActiveSync mobile device protocol

    For some reason the new Mac Outlook client is now connecting to Exchange using mobile device ActiveSync protocol. This protocol is not documented in any of the Mac Outlook guides so wondering if this is either (a) workaround to some internal engineering issue of (b) new protocol standard for Outlook that requires official technote of some sort.
    Can Outlook/Exchange engineering team either fix the issue to remove ActiveSync protocol or publish some technote to explain why this is now used ?
    Thanks

  15. Offer option to disable calling when you are offline instead of just doing nothing or sending to VM

    Teams is a great meeting and collaboration tool, but it's a large program that doesn't need to stay running unless I'm calling into a meeting. People often try to reach me through Teams by calling me on Teams, even though the program is closed and I'm offline in Teams - however, the program doesn't have a setting to prevent being called if you are not on Teams and don't have it setup to go to VM.

    Being able to not be called unless you're active on Teams would be a great feature to add!

  16. Links to Teams should open in the Teams app on iOS and MacOS

    When someone sends you a link to a document in Teams, whether via email, or messaging, or embedded in a doc, clicking that link will attempt to open it in the browser, rather than the native Teams app. This is true even in Outlook, which should have better control over this behavior. This is true on both iOS and MacOS. In addition, if you open the link in Chrome (the only browser on any Apple platform that Teams supports), there's no way to open the native app to the same view, which is a common thing to do on iOS.

  17. There is main issue which very annoy


    1. Unnecessary click In 'Team' pane 'New conversation' button:
      AR: In 'Team' pane in order to start new message I have to click 'New conversation' button, but in 'Chat' pane I can start type at once without unnecessary click.
      ER: In 'Team' pane start type at once without unnecessary click, like in 'Chat' pane.

    2. There is a lag 2-3sec without spinner when I switched between chats or teams before all chat or team messages will be displayed. Why you can't load 20 last messages of every chat in advance and when user switched to them show them immediately without lag.

    3. Sometime…

  20. Make calls and attend meetings using the web version of Teams in Safari

    Extend the ability to make calls and attend meetings using the web version of Teams in Safari. Users can do this in Chrome on a Mac but not Safari.
