  1. Tool tips for Close and Minimize remain on the screen

    Minimize and Close button tips remain on the screen after clicking each respective button. The only way to get them to go away is to either bring Teams back into focus or kill and restart the application. It is super annoying.

    • 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.

        Hi again everyone, thanks for your patience on this bug.

        We’ve identified the issue — Chromium Renderer and the latest build of Electron are affecting this issue — and we are working to put a fix in place by end of the month (August). I’ll let you know if that date slips, but so far its looking much better than it did a month ago when we were assessing the problem.

        Let me know if you have any questions and thank you again for your patience and support of Teams!

      • Fix/allow selecting and copying text from conversations.

        Currently it's not possible to easily select and copy multiple blocks of text/replies from the conversation window, regardless of whether in the desktop or the web client. Attempting to select multiple blocks instead selects a single "reply". If possible, it would also be nice if the selected text were copied into the clipboard "pretty-printed" with nice formatting (includes user, date/time, etc).

        • 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?

            1. When typing Hangul after the character ‘(‘, and a space, the Korean IME combination is broken continuously, and and we can not send messages correctly due to the broken IME compositions. (e.g. when typing (안녕하세요, (안ㅇ하세요ㄴ comes out.

            • Fix OSX client updates

              It seems whenever the OSX client updates, we get a "An update is ready to install. Microsoft Teams is trying to add a new helper tool." authentication request, then the app quits. Or sometime the app just quits on it's own without any notification. When it launches again, the "loading" box then sometimes doesn't disappear. I really want to roll this out for our teams to start playing with, but having the app quit on us ~10 times a day without notification makes it unusable.

                • 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.

                            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 Planner / Teams interface

                                  I created a Plan in a Teams channel and added some tasks with assignments to team members. Feeling constrained by the Teams UI, I clicked the icon on the teams plan page to open the planner website. In planner I can see the plan but it has no tasks in it. But on the "My Tasks" page of planner, my assigned tasks are displayed. I can't figure out how to tell planner about the tasks in this plan.

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…
