  1. Video and Screensharing Bug

    When initiating a video call, I receive an error message which states video and screensharing will not work for me and that I should check my video drivers. I have the latest version of Microsoft Teams (v1.0.00.15151, 64-bit) and my webcam works for other video call and screensharing services, so I'm confident my video drivers are up-to-date. Some users I work with do not have this same problem, but I am aware that others are experiencing the same issue I am. I am running Windows 10 on a Dell Latitude E6540 laptop.

    • "Sorry, you need OneDrive for Business for file sharing." Even though we have OneDrive for Business

      For some reason I'll get "Sorry, you need OneDrive for Business for file sharing." message when trying to share files. It used to work. and stopped yesterday I think.

      • Incorrect status in teams

        We have noticed that our Teams statuses are consistently incorrect. Even when some team members are active in Teams they are shown as "away" or "offline". For example, although I can see that my status is "active", my colleagues see my status as "offline".

        Can you please fix this bug?

        • Bug: Teams restarts several times a day

          Teams restarts several times a day, it says a new update has been installed. I think something goes wrong with installing the update and then it tries the same an hour later.

          I run Teams as a standard user (non admin), maybe it doesn't have enough priveledges to successfully finish the update?

          Please fix.

          • Current version has reverted to US date/time formats despite UK being set

            You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.0.00.14456 (64-bit). It was last updated on 5/31/17.

            My language option in the Teams UI and on the computer is English UK, but all dates/times in Teams have reverted to US format.

              • Reduce desktop client power consumption

                Teams desktop client background running is draining laptop battery every couple of hours. See attached image. Additionally, since installing the client, whenever I have put the machine into sleep mode, it reboots itself within a matter of seconds of shutting the lid.

                Laptop is a Dell XPS13 (9343) running Windows 10 Pro 1607 14393.1198

                  • Fix the bug in @mentions

                    When you type an @ sign for a mention, and then need to backspace or otherwise correct a typo in the name you're typing - then the @mention function no longer works. 30 minutes later the "@" sign still won't bring up the list. If you type the name you want exactly - including both first and last name as the awkward implementation of this feature requires - still doesn't work.

                    This seems like a minor issue but it happens to a least a couple of people everyday. Not being able to notify someone with a message is such a…

                    • Fix the bug stopping connectors from being added to teams.

                      We have a team where it is not possible to add or edit connectors. When the connector dialog is opened it briefly shows the panel with the categories on the left, and then displays an error stating:

                      :-(
                      Something went wrong.
                      The user account which was used to create configuration is not part of the group or organization.:Access is denied. Check credentials and try again.

                      The person who created our Teams project has left the organisation so we believe that it may be related to his account but we don't know how to remove his connection to the team and…

                        • Editing a message causes chat to scroll up to random location (BUG)

                          When I try to edit a message it scrolls up the conversion for no reason at all. This seems to be a regression bug as it was not in previous versions of teams.

                          To reproduce in a conversion try to edit a previous comment and observe the scrolling.

                                • Camera isn't working

                                  My camera isn't working after the update to 1.0.00.14456.
                                  It worked in the previous version and hasn't been fixed by a computer restart.
                                  From what I can see all drivers are up to date.

                                  • Banner alerts

                                    Banner notifications stop functioning after awhile; I am using the desktop application. If I close the desktop application, then quit and re-launch/login they begin working again.

                                    Is this a known bug? Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.

                                      • Email address changed

                                        Hi our company migrated our email addresses from one domain to another. Both my phone app and my Windows desktop app had an absolute fit from this. They could not handle the old account not existing anymore and gave me an infinite loop of "Sign in again" prompts. On iOS I had to delete the app and reinstall. On Windows, I had to quickly click my account name and log out otherwise it would boot me out of the app within 5 seconds again asking me to sign in again.

                                        Please fix!

                                        • Buggy Teams Channels

                                          Using the desktop client (Windows 1.0.00.6903 (64-bit)), I'm currently a member of 7 teams.

                                          The the collapsing channels under each team is handy, but the teams on the bottom of the teams list are pretty buggy when choosing channels that are hidden under the "n more channels".

                                          For instance, when clicking the bottom team's "n more channels", the list shows up and when you choose when of those hidden channels, all of the channels for that team collapse, including general. Then when you try and expand all of the channels for that team, you automatically join the general channel for…
