  1. UI not updating on new message / chat

    Pretty much our whole company has the same issue (including mac, windows 10, windows server 2016)

    On new message, we see a notification, and we see a message-marker on the chat-botton, buth after opening the chat, nothing is marked or highlighted.
    One has to actively click any of the chats to make the ui refresh, so the highlightings are shown correctly.
    This is not even working correctly when the current chat receives a message.

  2. Incoming Call Notification / Dialog not always appearing

    I find after having Teams run for some time (e.g. more than a day) that the Incoming Call notification dialog seems to stop showing on the Windows Desktop version.

    I can hear the incoming call sound, there's just no way to accept the call -- I have to use my mobile (which is also ringing and has a notification).

    If I quit and re-open Teams, then it shows future incoming calls, so it's purely an issue that the "Incoming Call" dialog doesn't show.

    Attached is the dialog I normally see, when it's working, and goes missing.

  4. While I'm typing messages in any channel or chat, the page slowly scrolls up. It also does this when I get a new message so I have to scrol

    When I am typing a message, whether in chat or channel, the conversation window scrolls up for as long as I'm typing for. A message this long will scroll up a few dozen lines, while a much longer message will scroll to the beginning of the conversation.

    THIS BUG IS NOT FIXED. VERY ANNOYING. It also scrolls up everytime someone types a new message so I have to scroll down to read it....

    working on it  ·  Suphatra responded

    Me again. The team says this bug is happening when the user is at 85% zoom on Teams. Can you check to see if you are, and if the problem goes away if you go to a different zoom level? Please comment on this thread or email me at sparavi@microsoft.com with what you find, so I can crush this bug. Thank you!

  6. Message toast appearing when set to Do Not Disturb and with Quiet Hours enabled.

    My boss doesn't want confidential IM's being displayed while screen sharing in meetings.

    I suggested turning on "Quiet Hours" - but he was still getting message toasts from Teams.

    Even after setting "Do Not Disturb" he was still getting toast containing potentially confidential info while screen sharing in another app (in this case WebEx).

    Please make Teams abide by Quiet Hours.

  8. The status feature behavior is very unstable

    My team mates and I try to change our status regularly manually. It does not work 90% of the time.

    When we select a status and try to make the change, the status stays the same.

  9. Push notification not stabile

    Push notification not stabile on iphones. All notification abilities switched on , however It may happen that you often miss the important message. We need a messanger like app to be 100% sure that new message will arrive and beep on phone. There is some bug in this this function as it not always work well.

  10. Can't favorite a contact until a chat is started

    Looks like you can't add a Chat contact as a favorite until you start a conversation with them. If no conversation has happened yet, you can click the star to favorite but it does nothing.

  11. Launching for first time on Windows 10 renders only a white screen

    I have just installed Teams on my Windows 10 workstation, for the first time, and it doesn't work.

    The UI renders only a white screen. I have tried rebooting, uninstalling/reinstalling, and I used the notification icon to get logs. There is an error in the log:

    -- info -- Restoring Window state with X:0 Y:0 Width:1280 Height:750
    -- info -- Loading window manager initialized with wasWindowMaximized = false, wasSilentUpdate = false, wasCrashInBackground = false
    -- info -- Not Centennial, no app ID
    -- info -- notification manager: OS notification duration set to 5
    -- error -- Blocked to load files…

  12. Cannot update profile picture

    My coworkers and I are unable to change our individual profile pictures. This is the process I am following.
    Bottom left Initials icon -> Update Profile Picture -> Upload picture -> Save
    This results in the picture vanishing briefly, and then reappearing with only the first initial of my name as the icon. This is the case for most people within our company. We are able to get it to save on the Android app, but the picture is only viewable to yourself and not anyone else. We have tried the web app, desktop app, and mobile app without much…

  13. Transparent team picture gets dark background

    I'd consider this a bug: if you upload a team picture with a transparent background (a PNG) then the picture's background will be dark, despite the UI around it being light. See attached screenshot. I'd expect a transparent PNG to remain transparent.

    Uploading the same image with white background provides the expected result.

  16. Update channel - messages are not shown / missing

    I am missing messages in "activity" and in the channel. (Desktop-Version 32-Bit) ... same happened on a Mac-Version.

    No - those messages where not deleted by the user after they got posted.

    This is a Killer-Bug which needs attention ASAP since a communication tool that cannot be trusted in delivering the communication just will be replaced asap.

    When looking at Teams at colleagues, I noticed that they had entries that I don't have in my Teams (Windows 10). Even more strange: When I look at my iOS app, I see those messages.

    Causing problem might be network issues and my…

  18. Keep active text box from losing focus

    When I'm typing a reply to an ongoing thread, and another thread receives a reply, Teams usually scrolls down to the bottom and the reply I was typing loses focus so I have to scroll up to find it and click on the box to start typing again. Sometimes it moves the cursor down to the new conversation text box too. Tested both in the local client and running in Chrome.

  19. Edit my own message

    As of 8/24/2017 users are unable to edit their own messages. Permissions at the team level are correct, but no edit still.

  20. wiki link

    Fix the Link Markup for wiki. If i want to shorten a long url by using the [text](url) pattern and copy-paste the url, it is automatically transfromed to an link and destroys the markup-pattern. It's only possible to type the url on your own, which is very annoying e.g. for sharpoint file urls.
