  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.

    • 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?

          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.

        • 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.…

          • 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…

            • 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.

              • 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…

                • 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…

                    • 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?

                      • 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…

                          If you are hitting the document library of 20,000 items please try this solution.
                          It is a known issue for OneNote.

                          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.

                          • 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.

                                    • when using backticks for markdown second item not rendered correclty

                                      In a teams message, write some inline markdown (surrounded in `backticks`)
                                      Add more inline markdown
                                      Only the first substring of inline markdown will be correctly rendered

                                      • Clicking on a OneNote file result after performing a search returns "Sorry, we couldn't find your file."

                                        I can navigate to the notebook via the OneNote tab, I just can't open it from the search results.

                                        • 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.
