  3. BUG: Teams app causing network drive mappings not be shown in Widows Explorer

    When Microsoft Teams app is open and we try to map a network drives in Windows Explorer, the drive is mapped successfully (can be verified with net use cmd) but it is not displayed in Windows Explorer.

    Closing and starting Explorer windows or pressing F5 doesn't help.


    • Restarting the Explorer.exe process lets the mappings appear.

    • Closing MS Teams app solves the problem permanently.

    When there are existing mappings and you remove the mapping from Windows Explorer, the mappings will not be accessible but they will remain visible in Windows Explorer until you close the Teams app.

    Retsrating Explorer.exe "solves" the…

    you CAN'T see a tooltip with his address
    you CAN'T see a tooltip with his department

  6. Microsoft Teams Notifications position

    Add an option to let user change the position of the Mictrosoft Teams notifications on MacOS. Currently it's only on top right which is so annoying, because it overlaps the other apps important buttons!

  11. Out of office pop up showing up constantly for all users

    Hi,

    We at work are in a group chat and when someone is out of office, the little grey bar ontop of the chat box keeps showing up with the info that the person is out of office and may not respond.

    You can close it but every time you re-open the chat tab it pops back up.

    This happens for all users in chat (about 20 participants).

    Can we disable this?

    Thanks

  14. Remember swops to other parts in Teams

    In Teams: it would be great if Teams remembers a swop to another tab (chat, notebook, other Team)
    E.g. If you're working in a notebook and want to go to a chat to give a quick reply and after that you want to go back to your notebook, you have to start all over again to find the part you were working in.

  15. Ability to turn off the "share" functionality at the tenant level for Microsoft Teams

    Sharing with other tenant members outside the team seems to be a "default" setting turned on in Microsoft TEams. Having the possibility to turned it off would increase the Privacy possibilities of Microsoft Teams

  17. Allow application to start in the background (PROPERLY)

    No matter how often I configure the desktop application to start in the background, it keeps resetting this setting. This is so annoying that I will be uninstalling this application until this is fixed.

  19. Desktop client localization

    I have only found EN version for download for a desktop client. If it attempts to replace SfB, it needs a standalone client running in your systray, to quickly see messages and reply. But it doesn't recognize our language and underlines all the words. We also use EN SfB, but it recognized the used language and spellchecker works correctly. Teams either should do the same or localized version should be provided. On the web it is by default uses localized version, so app is already translated.

  20. Too much white space in UI and not enough message density

    There is far too much graphical 'white space' between messages in teams. It is not serving any value and is wasteful. For example move the 'Reply' button to the right of the message rather than below, the Reply button being below every message wastes valuable vertical space. On top of this there is a 'gap' or border and moat between each message. Compare to mIRC, Slack or other chat clients one can review much more messages and read more seamlessly without having to scroll as often. In other words, make it more chat client'y and less email client'y.
