sending messages is causes timeline above it to jump back days or weeks
When I am chatting with team members, each time a send a message the chat history above jumps back days or weeks...and I have to scroll back down to the bottom. Very annoying.
Thanks Chris for sharing this! I’ve sent it straight to the Messaging team, who is investigating.

I am having this same issue on my Windows 10 machine. We have a Team for requests that I fulfill, in order to go to the most recent conversation, I scroll to the bottom of the conversations to have it jump back 3-4 months ago.
It seems that this list isn't monitored much or this bug isn't seen as a problem to the developers otherwise it wouldn't take three years for a fix!
Now in Teams for Windows 10 desktop and in the MacOS version, whenever we close and re-open the Teams app (or whenever we restart the computer), the chat is scrolled back to a time that is weeks or months in the past. We're forced to manually drag the scrollbar to the bottom every time we re-open Teams. Furthermore, occasionally the chat jumps backwards even without re-opening Teams (possibly this happens when selecting and copying text, but it seems random).
To confirm, EVERY time Teams is re-opened, the chat is scrolled to a point weeks or months in the past. Additionally, jump-backs occasionally occur at other random times, maybe in relation to selecting and copying text.
This bug happens for us too, but only in the MacOS version. Our experience is slightly different to what Chris Goumas described. For us, it doesn't jump backwards every time a message is posted, rather it jumps backwards sometimes, seemingly randomly.
After additional messages are posted it seemingly randomly returns to the bottom (most recent) posts. Sometimes it jumps in the middle of typing a post.

Yeah this is terribly frustrating - Chats always jump backwards in the timeline every time I post something. This has been a long standing issue that is still not fixed almost 8 months after I first saw it starting.
Mine will jump up every line feed when typing
ie. shift-enter will do it
when chatting with someone in teams the view will sometimes jump around, typically jump backwards many messages. seems to happen most frequently after pasting a screenshot or such.

My chat windows are always jumping all around. I leave it at the bottom of the window where the newest messages are, but then when I return to it, it's scrolled up to messages that are over a month old. I'm constantly having to scroll back down to the bottom, especially after new messages come in. Please fix!
