  1. Sharepoint tabs won't load

    When adding a SharePoint tab to a channel, it will sometimes fail to load. Sometimes this can correlate with not being logged into the office 365 website through a separate browser. It also does not produce any error, the tab stays blank. Other users have found it works better to add it as a website tab, which prompts for login if the problem occurs. Should the expected behavior be that the tab loads because you are logged into teams and shouldn't need to login again?

    This is another thread of users discussing this problem:

  2. URL Support in Teams via SharePoint

    Any URLs posted on a SharePoint site show up as documents within Microsoft Teams. Users must go to the SharePoint and then go to the URL. They should be able to click on the URL to launch the website directly from Teams.

  3. Block Phone Numbers Ringing Through

    Phone numbers that I've taken the time to block under Calls are still ringing through, defeating the purpose of having them blocked. If a phone number is blocked, it should not ring through.

  4. spell check Adding new words

    Can we add new words to the spell checker in Teams. My browser and office work with custom directories - extending that to work with teams would be fantastic - particularly as we tend to use a lot of technical acronyms and jargon not in the current dictionary

  5. Disappearing messages and replies

    With the Windows 10 Teams app, this has happened a few times now: I post a message in a channel and a co-worker responds to it. I get the notification that they replies to my message and I can see it in the Activity tab. However, when I navigate to the channel, their response is not visible.

    Additionally, I've quit out of Teams and restarted. When I navigated back the channel in question, my original message is no longer visible.

    Not sure what exact steps are necessary to reproduce the issue because it doesn't always happen.

    My colleague can see…

  6. Teams not generating thumbnails for youtube videos anymore

    It used to be the case that whenever you posted a link to a youtube video, it would generate a thumbnail, but this is not working anymore.

    It'd be great to have this back on and also make what's in here https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38782594-display-youtube-video-title-and-description-when-s

  7. Can’t add guests to Teams unless they’re already in the AAD tenant

    I'm having an issue that doesn't seem to match up with the expected admin experience. Essentially, I can't add a guest that is not in the AAD tenant through Teams desktop/web apps. I get the "We didn't find any matches" error.

    If the guest is in the AAD (by being in an Office 365 group, at least), then I can add the guest to the Team via the apps.

    For AAD, I can add guests and for Office 365 Groups, I have "Let group members outside the organization access group content" enabled. I logged this issue on the tech community…

  8. 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.

  9. Cannot share files in a Chat

    In a Chat, if I click either the PaperClip or the Files Tab, I cannot attach a file.
    This applies to both the desktop and web versions of the application.
    Have uninstalled teams, rebooted, then reinstalled the desktop app.
    Have OneDrive for business set up.
    An solution?

  10. 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.

  12. On Linux (Ubuntu) the beta MSTeams continues consume CPU after a call.

    On Linux (Ubuntu) the beta MSTeams continues consume CPU after a call. 100% Reproducible on my laptop. Noted that by noise from my laptop's cooling fan not being turned off without any notable reason after a morning's daily meeting.

  13. Allow removing all blocked domains in Teams admin center

    When you go to the Teams admin center -> External sharing and add a domain as blocked, you can not remove it afterwards. You get an error "You must have at least one domain in the block list". Why is this if there are no blocked domains by default anyway?

  14. Bug creating multiple plans in a Teams Channel

    We have multiple channels within a team (e.g. Sales) and have added Planner links to each one. The first General channel was linked to the plan created automatically when the Team was created and this shows ok in Planner itself (as the Sales plan). However when we've added Planner links to other channels and selected Create New Plan the plan has been created and linked in Teams but when opening in Planner only the original Sales plan is showing. So we can create multiple plans from teams but cannot view them in Planner. The workaround is to go to Teams,…

    The status is getting changed automatically to away after 5 mins of inactivity though my laptop is in working mode and I'm working in different things. Please let us change the status manually or please provide an 'Idle time set up option'.

  16. 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!

  17. Program Startup Entry

    Don't add a startup item on Windows called "Program" without any additional details.

    It could be because this entry is malformed.

    It's listed as "C:\Program" Files\Teams Installer\Teams.exe --checkInstall --source=PROPLUS

    The quotation marks don't seem to be in the right place.

  19. Files tab no longer opens General folder

    The link to the General folder in the associated SharePoint document register is broken. This prevents attachment to be added to Conversations. Please make it possible to edit the Files link so that correct function can be reestablished. This would also allow people to use the Files tab to point to their prefered location rather than a predefined location based on Channel Name. This is a serious issue inhibiting adoption of Teams in my Company.

  20. Chat with Guests

    I have added a guest to our AD. Guest access is enabled in teams. I can see the guest in chat and have sent them a chat message. I manually installed Teams for the Guest on their mac. They are not receiving my messages. Guest access needs to work in chats as well, not just in Teams.
