  1. This is so horrible. It takes way too long to log in to Outlook for me email. This shouldn't be this difficult. Why do I get logged off

    This is an awful site. It takes way too long to log in and I have to sign in way too often. Plus it doesn't remember my password for some reason. I don't have the time to wait for this each day and sometimes during the day.
    My gmail accounts open very easily. Outlook is horrible. I need all my email accounts open all day long. Closing out the tabs and going back to sign in each day on my teams page is dumb. I would never recommend this program. Unfortunately I am stuck using it because the team leader…

  2. Just make it work! So buggy!

    Just make it work. Has issues and the flow still needs to be done better in the Teams app. What about Windows ink in Teams?

  3. rm -rf /MSTeams

    Err. don't restart 10 times a day (and steal focus or alert me - I'm not interested that you've fixed another bug).

  5. Do a better job of explaining what it does and why I need it.

    I'm sure someone finds this useful, but as someone who gets it installed on their PC as part of an Office 365 there's little to no documentation on what it does or why I need it. What does it do for me that I can't accomplish by emailing a file or using a Skype conversation with someone? I shouldn't need to be a rocket scientist to figure this out.

  6. Newbie Mode

    In group channels, if someone enters a message via "Type a new message" area (instead of replying to an existing thread) Teams will ask if they are sure they wish to create a new thread. (Of course the usual options in the prompt to disable asking again in the future.)

    I would also change the "Type a new message" to "Start a new thread"

    Perhaps replace the "Reply" button with a "Type a response" box.

  7. Modify You've Been Added to a Team email

    It would be nice to be able to modify the initial "You've Been Added to a Team" email to include links to overviews or internal support materials, best practices, etc. This will help us guide first-time users in getting started in Teams.

  9. How can we add external org contacts in Teams. this was relatively easy to do in skype for business but not in Temas

    I have enabled external access in org-wide settings, but in Teams, I still cannot add external users.

    The message in teams says, we can't set up the conversation because your org are not set up to talk to each other.

    In skype for business, we regularly talk to each other. so both orgs are set up. In teams it does not want to add the same contact

  10. Where do you get help for this thing?

    I've been using Windows apps since way back. I've been able to figure out how to most Windows programs without a manual or help or tutorials. But Microsoft Teams is the first program I can recall that I need to get some help how to use. And the worst thing is, where is the help?

    Don't get me wrong, I get the general idea how stuff is supposed to work, but so far nothing is behaving anywhere near to what I'm expecting.

    I want to use it in lieu of Skype to have conversations with people, but it appears that…

  11. Save Conversations to Outlook

    We are moving from Lync/Skype to Microsoft Teams at work. One of the features Lync had was the ability to have conversations automatically saved to a folder in outlook.

    This gave me the ability to have a record of a conversation that could be attached to emails as needed.

    If Microsoft Teams has this functionality, I have not been able to find it. I can only see the ability to copy and paste a conversation, which is easily editable.

    Does Microsoft Teams have this capability or are there plans to add it?

  13. When creating a new team from the Teams Templates Copy SharePoint Lists

    When you have created a Team and you have created a SharePoint list in the background it is not copying this list over.
    I setup a OneNote with some information about the Template and this was not copied over.
    I setup a Planner tab with some build in tasks and this was not setup and all information gone.

  15. Allow browsers other than IE to signup for the Teams uservoice forum

    When using Edge or Chrome to signup for the Microsoft Teams uservoice forum it's not possible to accept the terms of service and therefore sign up. It's fine using IE.

    By comparison, the Visual Studio uservoice forum will allow signup with Chrome and Edge.

  16. Android sign in issues

    This has happened three times, and I think it's related to either updating the Teams app, or installing/updating other Microsoft apps.

    The issue is simple, at the sign in screen it simply says "we're having trouble signing you in". No other details, or errors (frustrating).

    The only fix is to uninstall -all- Microsoft apps. I'm guessing this must clean up some shared authentication token data or something.

    If you do some searching on Google, it's a rather systemic issue.

  17. Spelling mistake in Help section of teams

    There is a spelling mistake in the Help section of teams. details below.

    Learn about teams and channels
    Explore the Activity feed
    Activity feed basics

    Select Activity activity to see your Activity feed, a summary of everything that's happened in the team channels you follow. You can also select Filter flash light filter icon to show only certain types of messages such as unread messages, @mentions, replies, and likes. Windows Phone users, we're sorry but you buys don't have that option.

    Should that say boys/guys/something else? probably shouldn't say buys

  18. go ahead and log in

    Hi,
    I've been using teams for a while, but since my last password change I can't log in. The windows application is continually stuck at "Go ahead and log in." I've uninstalled, reinstalled, cleared my credential cache of all msteam* items. I can't seem to get in regardless of anything of tried. I can still log in through the web application, but the windows app is not working at all.
    Thanks,
    Jon

  19. 10 Minute Rapid sign up

    Let's suppose I am in one of the following situations:

    * I'm a teacher or lecturer with a class full students.
    * I'm at a conference doing a presentation

    I want to create a team and add all the people as members. Which would be doable if I had a list of everyone's email. But often teachers don't have instant access to all of their students email addresses. Rarely would presenters know the emails of all the guests.

    At present I could get a link for my team. Then convert that to QR code then project that on the wall…

  20. Microsoft Teams Configuration Guide

    As an SBC vendor who's trying to work with a customer deployment, I have an internal configuration note on how to commission our SBC, but where's ANY such document that outlines how to commission Teams from Microsoft's perspective? IE, what media ports and protocols, etc?
