  1. Rename of Team Channel doesn't rename associated Sharepoint files Folder

    When renaming a Team Channel, the associated Sharepoint folder continues with it's previous name. This could lead to confusion.

    Thanks for following our suggestion to vote this up on SharePoint. It worked! SharePoint has confirmed that they have already started working on this and I’ll be getting an ETA from them after the holidays. -Suphatra

    The team is still working on this fix, as part of a larger design change. Given internal feedback, it has been decided the current design isn’t ready for primetime.

    In the meantime, someone discovered that triple clicking will actually select all of the text. I know we want the real fix, but thought I’d share.

    Thanks for your patience.

  3. 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?

    Hi — My apologies for the delay in updating this item. We rolled out a fix a year ago for a specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you were still active on the device. We thought this had fixed the “incorrect status” issue. From comments below, it sounds like people are still seeing issues.

    If you are still having issues, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with device info and detailed repro steps to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks all!

  4. Fix pasting of images

    Pasting images is somewhat supported - see https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/suggestions/16925587-ability-to-paste-images) but is not correctly implemented (at least on Windows).

    Using Google Chrome, if I right click on any image on a webpage and select "Copy Image", I can not paste it into Teams. I can paste this on competitors products, such as HipChat and of course into MS Paint.

    There are different issues pasting from other browsers. Edge and IE both paste a blank image. Firefox has similar behavior to Chrome (nothing is pasted at all).

    This is a very common use case - pasting an image from a web page.…

    Hi folks, I’ve gotten a number of emails reporting this bug is back. Augh! Sorry about that.

    I’ve let the team know so we can find-and-kill this bug. Will let you know when a fix is deployed.

  5. Hide a user from Microsoft Teams

    It would be very beneficial to be able to hide a user from showing as a Microsoft Teams user. Right now it is super confusing for users when old staff members whose mailboxes are still being used show in Microsoft Teams. There is currently no option to hide these users from showing as contacts in chats.

  6. Stuck in a login loop after password change

    I recently change my system password, with MS Teams is already up and running in the background. I open Teams to check new messages, and it locks the app with the pop up "Can you please sign in again? Sorry for any inconvenience. Login Now"

    I click Login Now but all it does is restarting MS Teams and show me the same message. I am unable to re-authenticate. I've tried restarting the application, that didn't work.

    I had to right click on the systray icon to logout and re-login. I should be able to re-login when the app prompted "Login…

  7. File locking bug in SharePoint - frequently get file locks.

    File locking has been an issue in SharePoint for as long as I can remember, now carried forward into TEAMs.

    This is an obstacle to our adoption of TEAMs - people get frustrated by it (including our TEAMs support team!).

    Frequently unable to save my files because TEAMs/SharePoint believes another user (Me!) has it locked. Only answer (as ShaePoint won't let you rename or delete the original whilst locked) is to save a copy, close the file, wait 30 min or so and then hope TEAMs/SharePoint has sorted itself and delete the old file.

    Seems to me that it happens…

  8. Remove "Staff Notebook" from Microsoft Teams for Education

    I am not sure if this is a bug or not but we are using Microsoft Teams educational licenses. We want to use the Teams for our internal staff departments first. For some reason the setup of teams includes extra educational features like it force creates a OneNote tab called "Staff Notebook" in the General channel of each team. the OneNote includes a lot of classroom type customization that we do not want/need. Our departments have their own OneNotes. I cannot delete Staff Notebook tab or even rename it. I can add and delete other OneNotes but we want a…

  9. 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.

  10. Cannot open link file types from with the Files tab

    I dragged some URL link items from a folder in OneDrive into the Files section in Teams
     
    When I click on these URL links from within the Teams Files tab they do not open to a website, instead they try to download
     
    If I click to the actual library within Sharepoint, and then click these URL links, they open ok (ie. they take you to a website)
     
    Why don't they open from within the Teams Files tab?
     
    BTW - I noticed in the "New" menu in the Teams Files tab you can create a new folder…

  12. OneNote is broken on Teams

    Late last week, OneNote on Teams stopped working whether you are using the desktop application or the web based. Creating a new OneNote tab on Teams, it still does not work as well. All we get for a message is:

    "We can't access this notebook.

    You might not have permissions to view it, but your IT Admin show be able to help you."

    Previously, OneNote had been working. If OneNote is accessed directly with OneNote application, it will work fine.

    This appears to be a bug on Teams as others are reporting the same issues as well. Could this be…

  13. Fix Teams so it stops automatically scrolling UP in chat

    This is obviously a bug and seems to occur in the current build. When you're typing and the text entry field expands (due to number of characters typed, a big copy/paste, or Shift+Enter), the chat window scrolls up between 1-4 pages.

  15. Images cannot be copied out of Teams.

    Co-worker copied an image into Teams. It cannot be copied out of Teams. Selecting the image and right clicking presents an option to copy ... but it will not copy. Attempted on multiple machines.

    Image was of a 20 second spike in operations that needed to be investigated. We have a need to and should have been able to share this image beyond the initial limited team.

  17. 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.

  18. Teams doesn't recognise new audio devices being plugged in

    There is a bug that USB headsets are not recognised if they are plugged in after Teams has started. The list of audio devices doesn't change even once the OS has recognised the headset and it is working, so there is no audio in a call. The only way to get Teams to recognise it and work with it is to quit out and restart the program, then it works fine.

  19. 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

  20. Korean IME (HANGUL) does NOT work properly

    Korean IME (HANGUL) does NOT work properly

    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.

    - Looks like it's only happening in MS Teams app since it's working well in Word and Outlook with the sample repro steps.

    2. Even if we try to point out a particular person through @, the name comes out twisted with Hangul. (e.g. when typing @홍길동, @홍동길 comes out (the second character and…
