      • 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…

        • Add "waiting for" in planner when you are waiting for someone you can't assign the item to (eg - external)

          At present the progress is either not started, in progress or completed. Can we have one that says waiting on someone and/or deferred

            • 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

              • 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.

                • Totally immature software, some ideas

                  The iOS client must have landscspe mode. It's painful to type in portrait mode.

                  Your Mac client is totally half baked. Examples:

                  1. If I accidentally closenthe main window by cmd-W the only way to open it again it cmd-Q and relauch

                  2. Adding pics/files... There is no way to see, manage, or reuse the files I've already uploaded. The client just says the file exists already.

                  • I am looking for an App or Plugin to work with SharePoint lists from Microsoft teams. This would be the most natural usage for this Teams.

                    Microsoft Teams was advertised as a new, stronger Interface to SharePoint. The Interoperability with SharePoint is limited to files. This Supports trivial usage of SharePoint as an auxilary file System only. All functionality that can actually bring on Team work are not supported.
                    Does Microsoft - for instace - want us to use Trello for our task lists instead of our internal SharePoint?

                      • Whenever I end a meeting in MS Teams NetExtender crashes (no data is transferred through Extender during the meeting)

                        Not interfere with NetExtender. For some reason I must reboot my computer to use NetExtender again, each time MS Teams ends a meeting.

                              3. Same goes about notifications, some appears on laptop some on mobile, visa versa
                              4. multiple Links shared in a single message are not auto clickable.
                              5. Desktop app hangs each time a chat file is downloaded

                              • Make the application disappear forever.

                                The application as a whole is a mess. It's frustrating to navigate, and even when you find what you want it only works half of the time.

                                  • on the gif search, when i search 'racoon' nothing comes up. i have to search 'racoons.' Please fix.

                                    fix gif searches so they recognize cats is similar to cat, and raccoon is similar to raccoons.
