  1. Private Channel folder name is duplicated when synced in File Explorer

    Currently if I have a team called IT Admin, create a private channel called Test and sync it then in File Explorer on Windows it displays as IT Admin - Test - Test which is redundant and draws complaints from users. It should be displayed as IT Admin - Test, or IT - Test - Files would be workable. There is currently no way to edit the default folder location or name.

  2. Stop ink on OneNote moving when viewing online

    Every time I use the Draw function on OneNote my annotations on pupil work moves as soon as they open it on a different device. This is so frustrating as my pupils then can't see what answers my marks or notes correspond to!!

  3. Ability to go back into a live event page after clicking on a pop-up notification

    Hello,

    When I am connected to a live event, if I go look at another discussion, I can go back into the live event by clicking the small bottom right video of the ongoing live event.

    However if I click on a pop-up notification, and I want to go back after in the live event again, clicking on the bottom right video of the live event does nothing

    Best regards,
    Pierric Gourinchas

  4. Teams does not use regional settings correctly

    Teams overrides regional settings from Windows 10 and shows dates incorrectly. I want to use english UI because of international environment but correct local regional settings for dates, times etc. This is not possible now. Please fix so that Teams follows Windows 10 regional settings or that I can keep UI in english but regional settings correctly as in my country.

  5. Participant not removed from the breakout room.

    Once a participant is assigned to a room, even though he/she leaves the room or even the meeting itself he is still shown as assigned to the breakout room. There should be a setting such that once a "participant" leaves the breakout room they should return to the main room and will not be able to join the breakout room. They will have to be explicitly (re)assigned to a breakout room by the admin...

  6. Make the Teams Chat History page accessible, regardless of Coexistence mode

    Our "Coexistence mode" in "Teams Upgrade" is set to "Skype for Business with Teams collaboration and meetings".
    This means that the primary client for chat and meetings is the Skype for Business client.
    However, while in Teams our users can initiate a "Meet Now" meeting and invite others to this meeting.
    The Chat History of such "Meet Now" meetings is NOT accessible for our users.
    If users schedule a meeting in the Calendar tab, then the Chat History of that meeting is accessible.
    Sometimes the Chat History page is available; it appears all by itself in some user's desktop client.

  7. email messages folder

    When email messages are sent to a Team Channel they went to a folder called Email messages

    A recent update has changed this operation: Email Messages are no longer going a single directory called Email Messages. Multiple folders are now created with the month and year appended.

    Please revert to previous functionality

  11. MS Teams saying users have removed other users when they haven't

    We are having an issue in our Teams environment at present where some teams will randomly remove users and say stuff like.....

    " User1 has removed User2 from the Team. "

    The issue is that the User's who have apparantly removed those other users from the team have stated they did no such thing. This isn't limited to just 1 team or 1 user either its happened a few different times.

    Has anyone else seen a similar thing or anyone know of any fix?!

    Thanks!

  12. Fix the status feature so it doesn't show me as Away when I'm actively working on my computer.

    Satus changes to Away after about 5 minutes even when I'm actively working. My boss and coworkers use this feature to know when I'm available, and Teams makes it look like I'm not working. This is a HUGE problem and absolutely ridiculous that you can't seem to fix it. I see lots of people reporting this issue. WE used to use Skype and I could set it manually, set the time frame, and it detected activity automatically.

  14. Meeting links remain active after ending

    This is critical in K-12. The links to meetings are staying open, even after the end of a meeting (scheduled or not). I can safely assume this is a big deal in any use, but it is especially critical in K-12 education, where we simply cannot have students/parents/etc. "borrowing" our meetings to have their own video chat room!

    I desperately need a way to completely and finally end a meeting (and its link) when a meeting is complete.

  15. Cursor jumps to the end of the sentence when switching language from russian to english.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Write something in Russian.
    2. Move cursor to the middle of the sentence using keyboard.
    2. Switch language to English.
    4. Try writing something.

    Expected result: English words are added to the middle of the sentence.
    Actual result: cursor magically jumps to the end of the sentence and English words are added to the end.

  19. SharePoint News connector problem

    The SharePoint News Connector (sometimes) does not publish a post when a new SharePoint news is published. We have tried waiting for 24 hours without any post showing up. When we republish the news post, a post is created in the channel. Is there anything we can do to fix this behaviour?
