  2. When using the iPad with split keyboard, you can’t click the send button

    I use the split keyboard on an iPad. When I try to use teams conversations, the little button to ‘send’ disappears behind the keyboard and so does the text window btw. I must change to the docked keyboard in order to send. Please fix!

  5. Mac client loses all text and images

    Recently (since upgrading to High Sierra) I experience that all of a sudden all text and images are gone from the application.
    It still appears to work, you just can't see what you are doing anymore.
    When this happens, I have to close the app (Cmd+Q) and start it up again. Then it normally works for a while until it happens again.

  6. Presence/Status doesn't show 'Online' until activating the macOS app

    Often, the Teams app on macOS will show me as 'Away' after 3 mins of inactivity in the app, even though I'm still working on my computer. Doesn't realise that just because it's not the active window, that it doesn't mean I'm gone.

  7. Shortcuts interfere with OSX bound shortcuts

    The Alt-E button in The Netherlands is standard bound to a "´" symbol, therefor in a message-inputfield you can't use that button to jump to the "find person/team" field because it will then type that character.

  9. I'm getting notices that a "helper" is now available; I'd love to see a description of what is being changed versus just forking over my cre

    I keep getting notifications that a Helper is being added to my system and being prompted for admin credentials. It would be nice to get a notice of what the Helper is doing before I authorize a blind update.

  10. Mac: Please include an audio input/output/video device option for "System Default"

    Currently in Teams calls (same on SfB Mac actually) when I go to chose which audio device to use, I am not presented with a choice of "System Default".

    Every other VOIP program on the Mac (personal skype, google hangouts, facebook) has this option which allows you to control your device from one spot and have it used in all your clients.

    Can we please add this option .... cross OS would be ideal, if it's possible in Windows too.

  11. Please remove the automatic minimize feature on the Mac version

    Please remove the automatic minimize feature on the Mac version. Very annoying. Happens when the app hasn't been accessed in a certain amount of time but we still need it to remain open.

  12. Teams link will not resolve on Mac

    I have Teams installed on my Mac.  I coworker sent me a link to a file on a Teams site. When I click on the email link it launches a web browser window that encourages me to install the client version of Teams - which I am already using. There is no way I know to resolve the link - very frustrating.

  13. Add hyperlinks in Table of Contents in Word for Mac

    Table of Contents in Word for Windows allows the user to navigate directly to the location of a given item. On Mac this is not possible, or not directly enabled.
    Please add this feature as it is really helpful and necessary, especially in larger files.

  14. Make Teams for Mac available in App Store/VPP

    I love that OneNote is available in the Mac App Store, and it'd be great if Teams were too since it's also free. Deploying, updating and generally managing VPP apps is much simpler than having to package manually etc. This would make deploying Teams to our Mac departments much easier.

  16. Mac OS Open App at Login

    Mac OS Open Teams at Login
    Normally in Mac OS (currently Sierra 10.12.4), applications can be added to items to open at login (System Preferences>Users & Groups>Login Items). We have noticed that Microsoft Teams does not open after login when this is configured. Has anyone else experienced this? Any solutions would be appreciated. Thanks!

  17. Outlook (Mac) and Teams better integration

    Hi,
    Outlook for Mac and Teams are not working together regarding attachments or mail publication:
    - For attachments: it could be great, from a mail with attachements, to have a quick and easy way to publish the attachment into a channel (with a comment). Today, to do that, I need to save the attachment to my Mac and then upload it to Teams...
    - For emails: I know that it is possible to send a mail to a channel but it could be better to have a "publish to teams" action in the email ribbon that act as a way…

  18. macOS - Login credentials get asked about every hour

    Why are login credentials not saved. Desktop applications logs out about once every hour. I am using teams or Mac version 0.7.00.40. Shouldn't it stay logged all the time?

  19. double click title

    Please set your OS X desktop app to follow the system preference for double clicking the title bar. Very annoying when you have this set to minimize apps, and this one app maximizes.

  20. Teams interrupts active window

    When Teams runs in the background it randomly becomes active. e.g.: I have Teams open and I'm writing in word document. Suddenly while typing teams is active and my input goes into teams not into word anymore.
