  1. Using Teams Offline

    MULTIPLE USERS reporting offline needs:

    ---

    Generally want to use Teams offline:

    If I am offline it would be great to browse through Teams and Channels in case I have to lookup some informations.

    Also viewing the latest notes in "Notes" on teams would be great.

    It would be enough to have "Read only" - for the moment my Teams app does not even open when I am offline

    Compared on my mobile - I can read all posts while I am offline.

    ---

    Edit while offline:

    just been using teams wiki to take and share notes in a meeting.…

  2. Open links to teams in Desktop App

    SITUATION: When you receive a link to a Teams file or folder, or really anything in Teams, like a Planner task - it sends you to the sharepoint site, regardless of whether you have the Desktop App installed and even if it is open.

    RESOLUTION: Make links to any Teams elements open directly in the Teams Desktop App

    This will save so much time and frustration from people, and also make Teams seem like a more integrated solution for everyone.

  3. Proofing tools (spell check, theasaurus, autocorrect)

    One of the defining features of office down the years has been the proofing tools (i.e. Spell checker, theasaurus, autocorrect, grammar checker). I would love to see these come to Teams.

    The way I envisage this working is as I'm typing a message the famous red/blue/green squigglies that we've all become familiar with should show up.

    Most of all I'd like autocorrect (i.e. a spelling correction that I've used previously automatically gets applied as I type). Stretch goal for this, have a single set of autocorrects that work across all of Office 365, including the client apps.

    Some people might…

    working on it  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hi everyone, the engineer working on this item has left the company and we’re working on replacing him. I wanted to give you that heads up because the work has paused, which extends our shipping date.

    I really appreciate your patience as we work to get this back to actively worked on.

    I apologize, there had been come miscommunication with regards to this topic.

    The good news is that this item has not been declined! It has actually been approved by the feature team and is now “On the Backlog”.

    I’ll keep this thread updated as we move through the development.

  5. Stuck in a login loop after password change

    I recently change my system password, with MS Teams is already up and running in the background. I open Teams to check new messages, and it locks the app with the pop up "Can you please sign in again? Sorry for any inconvenience. Login Now"

    I click Login Now but all it does is restarting MS Teams and show me the same message. I am unable to re-authenticate. I've tried restarting the application, that didn't work.

    I had to right click on the systray icon to logout and re-login. I should be able to re-login when the app prompted "Login…

  7. Export chat history

    Skype keeps chat history in Outlook which makes it convenient if chat needs to be shared and forwarded to someone else. Can a Teams private chat be shared similarly, such as via an export to PDF?

  9. "all monitors" desktop sharing option like Skype client

    "All monitors" desktop sharing option missing from Teams

    Desktop sharing in Teams includes sharing 1 monitor OR sharing 1 app... in Skype for business client there is also sharing "All Monitors". When used, a presenter with two monitors will present a view showing both monitors in one window. The viewer can see both of the presenters screens in the one window. They can view this on one monitor or stretch this window across two monitors to make it much bigger and easier to see.

  10. Bug: Teams restarts several times a day

    Teams restarts several times a day, it says a new update has been installed. I think something goes wrong with installing the update and then it tries the same an hour later.

    I run Teams as a standard user (non admin), maybe it doesn't have enough priveledges to successfully finish the update?

    Please fix.

  11. Edit badge logic in Taskbar Notifications

    When a new chat has come in add a red taskbar notification like slack does. I depend on it to know when I have a message.

    we have this!  ·  Warren responded

    Due to the feedback I have created a new topic that targets the specific difficulty of the SysTray “red dot” not easily communicating presence or activity.
    Please vote up the new topic if you support it. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/34867705-teams-in-systray-does-not-distinguish-between-acti

    Most responses called out the wish to have a notification in the system tray and it looks like that is something we already have.

    If you get a message a red dot appears on the system tray icon and mousing over the icon provides a pop-up message stating “Microsoft Teams – New Activity” .

    Thanks,
    Warren

    try this instead  ·  Warren responded

    Whether you are using PC or MAC you can already take a screen shot.

    With PC the shortcut for a selected capture area is: SHIFT+WINDOWS_Key+S
    (this will allow you to select an area and capture it as an image to the clipboard.)
    With PC the shortcut for a entire desktop screen capture is the PRINT SCREEN button on your keyboard.

    With MAC the shortcut for a selected capture area is: COMMAND+SHIFT+4
    (this will allow you to select an area and capture it as an image to the clipboard.)
    With MAC the shortcut for an entire desktop screen capture is: COMMAND+CTRL+SHIFT+3

    This should meet your needs. If you feel it does not, please provide a summary in the comments as to your use case and why the OS capture tools are insufficient for your needs.

    Thank you!

  13. Integrate the client login with Office 365

    Integrate the client login with Office 365, similar to the integration of OneNote, Word, and Excel. This utilizes the current login information instead of prompting the user for credentials each time the client is started.

  14. Windows app should stay minimized to system tray

    The Windows app keeps appearing as an active app in my app bar, even after I've closed the app so it is only in the Windows system tray.

    Apparently receiving a notification causes the app to jump from the system tray to the app bar - and that shouldn't happen.

    declined  ·  Warren responded

    This feature request has been declined.

    Currently if you have the Teams app set to run in the background upon clicking the “X” in the upper right, the app stays active only in the system tray. If you receive chat messages, it still remains in the SysTray.

    However, if you get an @mention, the focus pulls it to the Taskbar. This is by design since you are getting directly mentioned and some action is typically expected. This is a key design element which the team does not wish to deviate from.

    We appreciate the suggestion but will respectively decline it at this time.

    Thank you for the feedback and suggestion.

  15. Tab key in Excel Online within Teams selects Teams Back Button

    When I have the Desktop version of Teams open and I edit an Excel doc within Teams (using Excel online), the tab key selects the Teams back button (the top-left UI element) rather than sending the tab to excel online. Tab is such a commonly used key within excel (e.g. add a new line to a table) that this issue makes excel a frustrating experience.

  17. Support for Citrix and RDS Environments

    Support for the desktop Teams application to be installed directly into Program Files and not into the users AppData.

    Currently this method is not viable for a RDS environment such as Citrix or Horizon View.

  18. Start calendar week on monday (or allow setting)

    Using the desktopversion, when I want to plan a meeting, my weeks start on Sunday. I'm used to weeks starting on Monday, so I spent half an hour planning (and replanning) meetings.
