  5. High CPU Time, Memory, and Disk Reads/Writes

    My computer uptime is 1 week, and your Teams electron app has been running the whole time. In that week 3 Teams processes have cumulatively done:

    * over 12 hours of CPU Time (on a quad core i5-7600K)
    * using 1.2 GB of RAM
    * 312GB of IO reads (!!!)
    * 280GB of IO writes (! what?!)

    Attached is a screenshot of my Task Manager. Again, this was in a single week (at most) of usage.

    I have an i5-7600K, running Windows 10 build 1709 (16299.492) with latest updates.
    According to Teams I'm running version 1.1.00.17553 (64-bit). It was last…

  8. Option to delete all scheduled Shifts when employee leaves organization

    We have multiple people who no longer work here, but I can't remove them from shifts. We currently only use Shifts to track vacation time. When I delete all the vacation, I still can't remove them.

  9. Change Voicemail Greeting link does not appear on Yealink handset

    Yealink Teams handsets dont appear to show the Change Voicemail Greeting link, meaning that users who only have handsets deployed for Teams calls are unable to change their voicemail greeting.

  11. shift request

    Is there a way to set it so employees can't request conflicting shifts? Let's say an employee requests an 8-5 shift then accidentally requests a 9-4 shift. Is there a way to not allow multiple requests for the same period?

    Thank you so much for this feedback! My name is Amir and I’m a product manager in the Shifts team. “Conflict resolutions” is an important feature that we have in our backlog and we will add this scenario to our product specification. Are there other likely conflicts that you foresee happening?

  12. Unlinked views in excel files which are stored in MS Teams

    If several people use an excel file everyone sees the same selections/filter at the same time (e.g. selection in list hides/unhides Special columns. Unlink option for individual views so that everyone can see another filtered view at the same time.

  13. Restore tab conversation message in conversation tab when it was deleted

    When you start a tab conversation, in the converations tab a message is posted "Tab conversation has begun.". When you delete this message every new message inside the tab conversation would be displayed under a deleted message in the conversation tab. Somehow confusing, even if this should be correct! Restoring the original message would make more sense.

  14. I want to share video and video audio during a meeting

    I want to share video/film and audio from film during a meeting (share screen). I want to be able to control it so I can take away the audio and only show Video, so I can speak at the same time. I should be able to share from Youtube or Vimeo or other channel... Is this possible?

  16. Lost option to start conversation from within a SharePoint Library from within a Team.

    We used to be able to Start a conversation from a Word doc or Excel file that was held in a SharePoint Library (Not the Teams SharePoint, Files Tab) and this would create a place holder within a Teams channel, and all staff could access this document from within Teams and now when we open a file from SharePoint Library we have lost the Start Conversation button so removed a function to collaborate on a document really easy.

  17. Check sync of the teams excel/data

    When excel file is saved, then deleted and new file is being saved in folders of teams, it seems teams remember the old file. If you open this file from teams (even with option desktop app), you will see the old data only (although the old file was removed). If you download the file into your downloads, that's when you get the correct file.
    It can be very confusing if you don't know that there might be data issue and person might end up working on wrong file.

  18. Image copying doesn't work in the desktop app

    Copying of images from the Teams desktop app (Windows) to other programs doesn't work. When I click RMB on the image (for example one sent to me by my colleague on chat) and selects "Copy image", the image seems to be copied to clipboard, but when I try to paste it somewhere else e.g. in Word or another program, I only get something that looks like an empty image. Tested on several user accounts and computers.

  19. Unable to insert links in Wiki tab if the window size of Teams app is smaller

    If the window size of Teams app is smaller, you see the “Insert link” icon under More options (・・・) by going Tool bar in Wiki tab .

    With that situation, you cannot insert a link correctly by clicking the “Link” in the menu.

    So, we would like to insert links even if the window size is small.
