  1. 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.

  3. Bug: Email notifications not sending

    Email notifications are not being sent. I’ve tried @ mentions, direct chat, and followed channels, on several accounts. I have my account set to receive Banner and Email notifications (see attached), but I have not received any email notifications in any of those cases.

    Teams says that a user is out of office days after the user has turned off this in Outlook. All other Office 365 systems correctly reflects this, but not Teams

  6. 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?

  8. Update User Status

    User Status is extremely slow to update. It is 7:30 am and the last programmer to leave last night around 5:00 pm is still shown as active even though he is not met.

    The user status is very helpful because it tells you if you can expect immediate response. I find myself double checking with Skype for Business when I need to know if someone is available or not.

  9. Microsoft teams sending <div>***</div> to skype users

    Randomly, team users sending messages to skype users are sending <div>text text text</div> to the skype users. So on teams it looks fine but for skype users they are seeing <div>'s wrapping the text of the message. It does seem to go away after a few minutes of use.

  11. Removed users can see notifications and partial text on threads which they commented

    1. Add a user to a private team
    2. Have the user comment on a thread
    3. Remove the user's access to the team
    4. The removed user will still receive notifications every time a different user replies to that thread.
    5. The user will see the preview text in the notification
    6. When the user clicks the notification, they do not have access (as expected)

  12. iOS Notifications still seem to have issues

    I can see a lot of posts about iOS notification bugs, and them apparently being fixed, but on my iPhone X with iOS 11 they have not worked for some time now.

    I have now changed the settings from "When not active on desktop" to "always" and still have issues.

    I often go into the app and see many conversations which should have sent me a notification.

    My desktop app notification settings are attached.

    I am missing vital messages due to this bug, so would like to see a fix.

  14. Provide ability to remove users added to recurring meetings' chats

    We have the following scenario that cannot be remedied without deleting a recurring meeting:
    1. User A and B have a recurring weekly meeting in Teams.
    2. User C is invited to join the call on this meeting during one instance.
    3. Even though User C has not been invited to the recurring meeting, User C now has access to the Teams chat of the subsequent recurring meeting instances.

    This seems like a huge bug that you cannot remove a user from seeing the chat of a meeting to which they are normally not a member. I just spoke with…

  15. Linked workbooks in Excel

    I have created an Excel workbook that is linked to 10 other workbooks in the same Team. They are all saved within the Team's filing structure. When one of the linked books is opened, an error stating 'Links Disabled: Links to external workbooks are not supported and have been disabled.'
    I am trying to encourage my workplace to move over to using Teams as our primary file sharing platform, but this is a major issue and will halt that progress.

  16. Pictures don't always upload

    Copy/Pasted pictures don't always upload properly. Sometimes, they show in the chat window with a broken thumbnail image, but then they show properly on the second try.

  18. Annoying user experience. Notifications do not respect DND on MAC.

    1. Why does teams still show notifications when I have set my MAC to DND?

    2. Notifications do not have a close option. It makes things more annoying.

    3. Please give an option for the user to set the status manually instead of team governing my status automatically.

  19. Teams Still Scrolling Up

    Teams Chat is still scrolling up (sometimes several pages) every time the text entry box expands to include more text. It's extremely disruptive.

    If I had the option, I'd use Slack/Discord instead. But I'm stuck using Teams, so please fix this bug.

  20. download

    Why are downloads going to a hardcoded c:\username\downloads location as opposed to the default download folder that has been associated within the OS via Explorer? If you use a remote user drive having downloads go to the local C drive is not a good idea. Can this be changed to follow how things are mapped in Explorer? This seems like a bug to me.
