  1. Allow ANYBODY to share their screen

    Currently we have to use other services such as Google Hangout/Meet or other video conferencing apps to meet with people outside of our company, because MS Teams does not allow screen sharing for anonymous guests. Its a real pain ********** that Teams doesn't have this ability and most other services do. We meet with people outside of our company a lot so we frequently need to abandon MS Teams for these meetings.

      At this point, screen sharing is enabled in our desktop client, but not web client. (in general, not just anonymous/guests). Adding browser support is in progress.

      Please comment if you are using the desktop app and are still unable to do so.

      I will keep you posted once available. Thanks.

    • Scaling pictures don't work

      The possibility to scale a picture in a wiki article seems to have stopped working. Since the day before yesterday one can only scale the pictures that's been uploaded in the past, a new picture is one size and impossible to scale. Is this a known issue?

      • Teams shortcut is not being added to Start menu App list

        After installing Teams via latest executable, the shortcut for the application is not being added to the App list of Start menu. Even Windows Search cannot find it as an installed app. However, it can be found from installed applications via Settings.

        Observed on Windows 10 version 1809.

          Thanks for raising the feedback. I’m happy to tell you that the build with the fix for this issue is in the process of being rolled out. Once you have received the upgrade to build 28562, you should no longer encounter the issue.

        • Teams Presence should be 'real-time'.

          Having presence delays of up to 4 minutes makes presence largely useless. Having to resort back to typing 'are you free now' after calls, because I can't tell if they are still in the meeting, or have started another meeting or call. Or trying to call somebody and get rejected and a message saying "I'm in a call"

          • 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....

            • Integrate Presence in Outlook contacts from Teams

              Whenever Team is running the presence should show on the Outlook contacts. When composing emails and adding users, it should show the presence of Team. It currently works only for skype for business.

              • Open PowerBI App in Android like in iOS

                Hi,
                we've tested a tab PowerBI with both iPhones and Android (Samsung). With iPhone the report is opened correctly with the app installed, while this doesn't happen on Android.
                Since in our organization we have mixed devices, we should be able to provide a common UX.
                Best regards

                Daniele

                • Teams has hijacked several keyboard shortcuts

                  Teams has hijacked several keyboard shortcuts as of early december, and will not allow them to be used even in other programmes.
                  This is particularly annoying as one of them, ctrl+alt+d, is probably the most used shortcut on my keyboard - I use it a couple of times a minute while working. Is it possible to make these keyboard shortcuts reassignable, or at least to stop Teams from interrupting other programmes?

                          The team is still working on this fix, as part of a larger design change. Given internal feedback, it has been decided the current design isn’t ready for primetime.

                          In the meantime, someone discovered that triple clicking will actually select all of the text. I know we want the real fix, but thought I’d share.

                          Thanks for your patience.

                            The apps will soon be categorized making it much easier to find what you wish to add for your personal convenience. You will see a Category dropdown list where you can choose which type of apps to view. Some options will be “Communication”, “Files + Documents”, “News and Weather”, “Productivity”, and “Reference” just to name a few. Look for this to be released early in the new calendar year.
                            Thank you for your feedback! -Warren

                          • Allow copying whole chat conversations

                            Currently, it's not possible to select & copy more than one message in a chat. When I try to select two or more messages, the focus stays on the first message making it impossible to copy whole chat.

                            There are some really ugly workarounds like: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Copying-conversations/td-p/62849 which I don't consider a solution of the situation.

                            I want to be able to select multiple messages at once and copy them by hitting CTRL+C.

                              In Skype for Business we were able to prevent users from uploading pictures for their avatar. This was done from a PowerShell script that modified the OWA policy. We should have the same option with Teams. Hopefully in UI instead of PS.

                                    This year-old bug has popped back up, as some of you may have noticed.

                                    It is only affecting users who are scrolled at 85%. If you are experiencing this, please send me user logs so the team can crush this bug!

                                    Thank you :-)

                                  • Guest access should be implemented at the Channel level

                                    Once I enabled guest access on the tenant I can enable guest access to a team, but I can't give guest access to a single channel. There should be a way to do this as I will now need to create a guest team and an internal team when I share teams with customers.

                                    • Mute a channel - (Mute Chat is complete)

                                      I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

                                      Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

                                          Great, news… this item is now actively being worked upon! I just want to clarify that the multiple accounts is moving along for mobile.

                                          I will share more details as we get closer to the release of this great feature request. :)

As one user puts it: "On the Windows 10 desktop client it is nearly impossible to copy multiple messages from the chat history. A fraction of a second after letting go of the mouse, the highlight collapses down to a single message."

                                          2. Can't paste in general: "Copy & Paste is tempermental, when i try to paste text in from other sources it simply doesn't paste, but then if I only copy a few (3-6) words then it does. It…
