  1. Support non-office files in Channel Conversations

    Please add the ability to start a conversation around non-office files (although, Visio, Project are also left out). Users now have to "post a link" to the Files file in a conversation rather than initiating it right from the file.

    • Captioning on Audio and/or Video

      As being employer to several staff who is Deaf and reply on using subtitle when watching video. I was surprised to see no subtitle/closed captioned feature when I play a video called Introduction to Microsoft Team Product Tour (2.03 minutes video) as enclosed in this attachment.
      Thank you.

      • Stop scrolling while I type a message.

        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 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 :-)

        • Cloud Storage like Box repeatedly prompts for credentials

          Cloud Storage like Box within Teams, keeps repeatedly prompting for credentials every 30 mins to 1 hour. Please renew the token silently before it expires. This will ease Users to access their files in Box.

          • Persistent Login/Notifications on Mobile

            I have a bunch of users that leverage Slack and Google Hangouts for group collaboration and I would like to present them with Teams as an alternative, but I have a major issue that is keeping me from suggesting it:

            The mobile app is too inconsistent for making sure that users will see messages. There have been many time when our IT test group will think they are good, but someone will call them and ask why they are ignoring Teams. When you pull up the app, you get the login screen instead of your conversations, only to sign in…

            • 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?

              • 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.

                • Organize App Tab

                  Better organization (alphabetize?) of apps in the plus (+) app tab. A clear summary/explanation of what the app does and if it requires purchasing.

                    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.

                  • 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

                    • 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

                      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....

                      • Follow Skype for Business License for Chat in Teams

                        I work in the education sector and have over 1 million licenses we look after. 99% of these are not licensed to use skype for business because they do not want users to be chatting during lessons (K-12). This is for esafety reasons and prevent bullying when teh school dont have the time or resources to monitor this. For those that have, they can get a copy of the conversation history as it is stored in teh users mailboxes.

                        Teams does not follow any of this and some of my larger customers will not adopt Teams until the chat facility…

                        • 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?
