  2. Audio delay on iOS

    When call from Teams to Teams or external into Teams the user answering the incoming call is using Teams on an iOS device, we are finding an audio delay for multiple seconds, in some cases about 5 seconds or more, before the calling party can hear them. Looking forward to your feedback, known bug, or direction on Microsoft's plan to fix as it seems global for iOS users and can be isolated down to Teams to Teams calling, which eliminates PSTN carrier delays

  7. Managing membership of MS Team's team by distribution list management

    Adding or removit members from distribution list should respectively add or remove members from the team too. so admins do not manually have to add/remove members from Microsoft Teams.

  8. Make Whiteboards uneditable unless organiser gives privilege.

    As a teacher, I can easily share a "Microsoft Whiteboard" with my class. They write on it, I write on it in a meeting - wonderful.
    When the meeting/lesson has finished, they can still edit the whiteboard without me being aware of it. If they were to paste in an inappropriate picture and then, next lesson I open it - I am going to be embarrassed. In fact, if I never use that whiteboard again, the pupils might accidentally access it again, without me having seen the changes.

    A potential mine-field!!!!!

  9. HOMEWORK: Have the possibility to have only the homework that have been returned

    Now when we correct homeworks, we can sort the files before but when we came to correct we have all the homeworks.

    I would like to have the possibility to view only the homework that have been returned instead of viewing all the copies.

    We want control possible on Web Teams Currently, to give and take control of shared content during sharing, both parties must be using the Teams desktop client. Control isn't supported when either party is running Teams in a browser. This is due to a technical limitation that we're planning to fix.

  11. Hide Chats

    I've been trying to use the substitute for deleting chats in Teams, but the 'Hide' function does not seem to work properly. I have to select the hide option 10+ times for a chat to actually go away. This is sooo annoying considering deleting/closing out of a chat was better and easier.

  13. Stop incoming call notification on mobile app when active on desktop

    I have selected the notification setting on my mobile app to notify "Only when inactive on desktop/web"

    However when I am active on desktop/web, incoming calls continue to notify. The UI presents "incoming calls" as a notify option just like the other options for chat, mentions, replies, etc..., but it does not follow the same behavior when the inactive on desktop/web option is selected.

    This inconsistency is confusing and can be frustrating as a result. Please make incoming call notification behavior consistent with the other notifications and turn them off when the inactive flag is set.

  14. Why can't i paste into meeting notes? it seems insane that the basic copy/paste function doesn't work for meeting notes.

    I tried pasting basic text into the meeting notes function. not possible. how is it possible in 2019 that microsoft doesn't support copy/paste in an application? i can paste the same message into the CHAT but i can't paste into NOTES? are you kidding?

  15. Contact Group Issue in TEAM Chat

    I have created several contact lists for various groups. I cannot figure out how to start a chat / send a message to individual GROUPS / Contacts. Please fix this as I would think the point of creating a Contact list is to enable users to quickly and easily send messages to a select group of people.

  17. Q&A strips line breaks

    Responding to questions in a live event Q&A strips out line breaks in responses.

    Question responses often require basic formatting. If you allow users to insert line breaks with shift+return, it's very frustrating to then have them all removed.

  18. Contain bots in the result of the List conversationMembers" API

    .
    Current "List chats" seems to return only non-bot users.

    Background

    I'm creating a MS Teams bot which periodically checks the users' Outlook calendar by background threads spawned after the user logs in. We usually use OAuthPrompt of the Bot Framework to implement some "log in feature" for bot, but OAuthPrompt doesn't seem to provide a way to keep the access token valid while the user is off the chat (i.e. refresh token). So I got an idea that I create a tiny web app just for the bot users to log in as their MS account, then associate their…

  19. Play WAV files in-line

    When posting WAV files as an attachment, you used to be able to play the file within Microsoft Teams without downloading it, but a recent update has stopped this from working. Now it only works for MP3.

    I had set up a Voicemail system to automatically email a WAV file into the Microsoft Teams channel and then the user played it directly in Teams.

    Now the user has to Download the attachment and then manually browse to the file to play it. The Download option doesn't even give you the option to open the file immediately after.

  20. Fix Teams crash on Mac OS Catalina when USB headset is plugged in

    On Mac OS Catalina (beta), Teams is crashing if a USB headset is plugged in. Teams goes to white screen, crashes, tries to restart, white screen, crash, then gives “glitch” error.
