  2. Incorrect status in teams

    We have noticed that our Teams statuses are consistently incorrect. Even when some team members are active in Teams they are shown as "away" or "offline". For example, although I can see that my status is "active", my colleagues see my status as "offline".

    Can you please fix this bug?

    Hi — My apologies for the delay in updating this item. We rolled out a fix a year ago for a specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you were still active on the device. We thought this had fixed the “incorrect status” issue. From comments below, it sounds like people are still seeing issues.

    If you are still having issues, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with device info and detailed repro steps to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks all!

  4. Allow the central administration of Teams

    Currently an Admin cannot use the Admin app to centrally administer Groups, Planners and Teams. This creates a number of risks for an organisation: 1) unable to manage ownership; 2) unable to manage storage; 3) unable to manage information life cycles. Just to name a few. From a security and compliance point of view a central admin function is highly recommended.

    Hey everyone — Suphatra’s back! And I’m on the case with this item.

    I talked to engineering and I think they don’t understand this request. The requests says “Admin App” — do you mean Admin Center? The O365 portal?

    Also, what exactly do you envision for central administration — for example — what can you do now, can’t do, and would like to do with this new feature.

    Your feedback will help me get the team to put more resources into this. Thank you!

  5. Better Team Permission Control

    The current team settings are very bare-bones.

    For instance, there's a single permission that allows for adding/modifying/removing tabs. These should all be separate permissions.

    For the sake of usability, there could be a "master" permission for each piece of functionality (tabs, channels, connectors, etc...) and an expandable list of the sub-options where, if you didn't want to give a certain role all of the permissions for a certain functionality, you could give a role a subset of the create/modify/remove permissions.

    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

  8. Do Not Disturb unexpectedly changes to Available

    I set myself to "Do Not Disturb"
    I send a message or a chat.
    Teams decides I'm available, and changes me to "Available."
    NO, DND means JUST THAT. Please STOP changing my availability!

    Once your tenant is using UPS (unified presence service), you should no longer have issues where DND changes back to available.

    If you are on UPS, and are experiencing this issue, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with any details to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks all!

  9. Solution for guests accounts with an organisation account without Office365 tenant to be able to login at teams.microsoft.com

    I have created several guest accounts following the instructions here:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/guest-access

    Basically,


    1. Enabled Guest Access in Office365 Admin Center


    2. Added guest account through Azure Active Directory


    a. Guest account received email Azure AD "You're invited to the organization"

    b. Guest follows the "Get Started" link in the email to create a password


    1. Added guest to a Team through Microsoft Teams desktop application

    a. Guest account received email Teams "You have been added to a team in Microsoft Teams"

    b. Guest follows the "Open Microsoft Teams" link in the email to be sent to teams.microsoft.com

    c. Guest is redirected to login.microsoftonline.com …

  10. 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…

  11. Doesn't show Audio Call start, stop, and duration on Chat

    For some reason Audio Calls stopped recording the start and stop times, as well as duration of the Audio Call, on the Chat window. There is no record whatsoever that we switched to Audio. I still run Windows 8, so maybe it's because you're trying to pull the plug on Windows 8? :)

  12. Video conferencing on web client

    I'm trying to get people here to migrate slowing from Skype for Business to Teams. Unfortunately the install able app tends to crash often, so more people are using the web client which is more stable, faster, and cross platform.

    Unfortunately it seems a lot of the functionality we need isn't there, like video conferencing. It seems Microsoft keeps trying to push apps instead of web apps and that seems to be a mistake. I'm sure it's easier to implement, but being able to work completely off the Office 365 website without any installed apps is a much preferable method…

  13. 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.

  14. Different Notification Colours

    It would be nice if the "followed channel" notification was a different color than the "direct mention" indicator. since I can't tell the difference, i find myself heading over to teams just to see conversations that I'm probably not interested in, which ends up being bad context-switching for me

    I would like to gather some more feedback about this topic. I understand the request is for different colored notifications but I wanted to see about your feedback on the different icons.

    We currently have different icons depending on the activity you are being notified of.
    Such as a direct mention in a channel with have the “@” symbol, letting you know you were @ mentioned.
    A lightbulb icon lets you know about general activity within a channel you follow.
    A chatbox icon appears when channel is mentioned that you are part of.

    And so forth… do these icons help you understand the notifications or do you feel color differentiation is also required?

    Let me know in the comments of this topic thread. Thanks!

    Would someone be able to provide feedback in the comments as to what is the expectation of this integration? What functionality is being asked for?

    Any details to better understand the request is appreciated.

  16. 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.

  18. Remove limitation for max users in Teams chat and guest access from mobile phones

    Hi,

    We have started to use Teams and love the functionalities.

    We have a Team where we keep all our related stuff within every thread and project, but...
    One thing that we do miss is the ability to have the whole gang in the Chat, cause this is were stuff and short info gets out (or fun stuff).
    It is not that easy to use the threads and people are doing it wrong all the time, starting a new thread instead of answering the right thread. In the chat you see everything in a simple way, all expanded, not compressed…

    The request for a higher chat limit is already in the works and being tracked by this UV request – https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/18544858
    If you support it, please go there and up-vote the topic.

    For this current topic, I am more curious about what the guest access request is… the summary didn’t delve into it in much details. If you could provide a better clarification on what the ask is around guest access, it would be appreciated.

    Looking forward to your feedback,

    Windows 7 has a banner indicating "Quiet Hours is enabled" so you won't get notifications for calls and messages in Teams. However, Windows 7 has no Quiet Hours settings to turn this off.
