  1. Reporting Capabilities

    We are after reporting capabilities to capture granular detail on activity within Teams.

    We would like to have data capturing:
    1. Number of users enabled
    2. Number of daily active unique users
    3. Breakdown of devices uniquely used
    4. Number of teams created
    5. Number of teams deleted
    6. How many instant messages sent overall in the Chat
    7. How many calls made in Teams
    8. Number of files shared in channels
    9. How many combined ‘likes’ have been made over a period of time

    • 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.

          Hi everyone, I wanted to check in on this ask because it’s died down since GA, and also because the ask is not totally clear to me.

          Right now, we provide a way during the team creation process for you to select an existing Office 365 group. Are you asking to be able to do this same thing, but outside of Teams?

          Do let me know!

          Sincerely,
          Suphatra

        • Ability to hide or minimize gifs

          I like a lot about Teams. However, one of the nice features of your main competitor is that on things like GIFs you can minimize them. GIFs are fun, but after the initial fun they are annoying to keep seeing auto playing in the feed. So a way to minimize them in the feed would be great.

            I believe the above request is for chats, is that correct?

            I ask because for Channels this can already be done.
            In order to disable them in a Channel an admin (or tenant) can click the ellipses “…” next to a Team channel, select “Manage Team” and then choose the “Settings” tab at the top.
            Then under the “Fun Stuff” category you can deselect “Giphy”.

            Thank you for your feedback and let me know in the comments!

              Hi everyone,

              I would need some additional feedback about item number 2).

              Is the ask for adding someone to a team, as in being able to manage teams via mobile? Or strictly just a single Team invite of a single user so they may join an existing Team?

              As for the other items:
              1) search exists for People and messages – additional scope is being investigated
              3) Creation of teams via mobile is under review – but you can already manage your existing teams from mobile and add channels
              4) You can view your schedule/calendar from the mobile app the same as you can from the desktop app

              Thank you for the feedback.
              -Warren

              • OneNote is broken on Teams

                Late last week, OneNote on Teams stopped working whether you are using the desktop application or the web based. Creating a new OneNote tab on Teams, it still does not work as well. All we get for a message is:

                "We can't access this notebook.

                You might not have permissions to view it, but your IT Admin show be able to help you."

                Previously, OneNote had been working. If OneNote is accessed directly with OneNote application, it will work fine.

                This appears to be a bug on Teams as others are reporting the same issues as well. Could this be…

                  If you are hitting the document library of 20,000 items please try this solution.
                  It is a known issue for OneNote.

                • fix notification settings

                  The notification settings in the current version are buggy.
                  Firstly all notification settings are blank, as you can see in the attachment.
                  Secondly when you try to set a setting it disappears again after a second.
                  Please fix that.

                        I'm on Linux and my user agent reflects that. Please stop showing the annoying and misleading "Want an even faster, more collaborative experience? Download the desktop app." notification - as long as it isn't applicable to Linux.
                        Also dismissing it (by clicking X) only works till next login, which is also annoying.

                          Thank you to those who have sent logs! One case we’ve identified where this is happening is when using voice or video calling. The engineering team is following up on that. If there are other scenarios, please let us know!

                          Please send logs to teamsml@microsoft.com:

                          • Type Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1 while in Teams
                          • Send the latest “MSTeams Diagnostics Log” from your downloads folder

                          Thank you!

                          Don't know why this isn't available by now. Would it be possible to have OneDrive for Business integrated with mobile apps?

                          • Close the Notification Loop

                            Notifications could be tightened up a bit.

                            1) Sometimes when I read messages that cause notifications, the red notification lingers on the channel until I click the channel on the lefthand side.

                            2) Sometimes after I read a notified message, the Teams icon continues to blink on my taskbar after I've read it.

                            3) When I acknowledge a notification on the desktop application, the notification remains on my phone and vice-versa.

                                • Teams crashing about 40% of the time when in calls

                                  Started doing this the last couple of weeks.Pretty erratic: sometimes it is when you share your camera or when you share both camera and screen. Hard to pinpoint what causes it exactly but straight up calls (without cams) seem to work fine.

                                    If you are experiencing these crashes, we would like to investigate. Logs will help us do so.

                                    If you’d like to send logs, please:
                                    - type (windows key) + R
                                    - type “(percent) appdata (percent) \ Microsoft \ Teams \ logs.txt” into the open box (without the spaces, parenthesis, and quotes)
                                    - save the file
                                    - send the log file that you saved to teamsml@microsoft.com

                                    Thanks!

                                    When I am in the middle of typing a message, and I click on a notification for a new message in a teams channel (for example), I should be able to return to the message I was writing. Currently, when I return the whole message I was writing is cleared. This means I have to finish writing the entire message before I can read my notification.

                                    • Making the dekstop install not so buggy

                                      I have had to install, uninstall, and reinstall both the 32 and 64 versions of Teams on my desktop at least 4 times now. It will work for a day maybe 2 at the most and then go through a spiral of trying to login, closing the program, and trying to login again. This cycle would repeat for an entire 8 hour work day if I didn't force shut down the program. I can't in good conscience roll this out to even a test team in the company if they can't get the download to function properly

                                        Thanks for sharing information. Would you mind sharing your machine spec and names of any major software you are running on it (Office, VSO, etc.) so that we could try to recreate similar machine/environment and see if we can repro the issue?

                                        Appreciate your inputs!

                                      • Half of my screen goes missing

                                        sometimes it scrolls down and I get a gigantic footer that takes half of my screen. The upper half still shows the content but when i scroll only the upper part scrolls the content. I have to ctrl +R to fix the problem temporary.

                                        I can share a screenshot if that helps...

                                          Hi,

                                          Thanks for sharing the feedback. Could you please share some screenshots of what you are experiencing when you scroll? Also would appreciate if you could call out is it happening on Web or Desktop?

                                          Thanks!

                                          There is a permission security hole. Members can add other members to a Team by using the SharePoint online interface and editing the group membership. Only Owners should be able to add new members. There is also no log of this in the general channel
