Don't Close Call when Teams window Closed
This happens to me about 5 times a day. Literally. I'm chatting to someone and they close the window to find another one and the call ends.
In Skype, closing the Window doesn't end the call.
On iOS, closing the Window doesn't end the call.
Why does it end the call on Windows?
Mark Bevan commented
Same for me - silly idea - close the window and close your team session - no warning, nothing, teams is supposed to be skype 2.0 so put the basic features back from skype please !
David Rioux commented
Wow since 2017 - I am impressed ;-)
please give at least a warning before shutting down the app during a call !
And thanks for the continous work on improving Teams!

Thanks, I hate it

Happens to me daily. Drives me INSANE.
This just happened to me, although the option "On close, keep the application running" was enabled. It is really and annoying. We just migrated our PBX to teams in order to work from home due to corona. This bug would be the main issue to switch to a different cloud pbx as soon as possible, This behavior is really stupid as ***

I've just discovered this same behaviour as well, as we look to migrate our voice comms to Teams. It's incredibly annoying and is slowing/reversing the acceptance curve of Teams by management and staff alike.
Kenny McDonald commented
Annoying as **** to drop off the same call 4x in one session. Fix this please.

Extremely annoying issue. Please fix this so we can stop looking like buffoons when we are trying to sell Teams as a communication tool to our customers. Thanks.

I confirm this.
MS Teams has the checkbox "On close, keep the application running" in the settings. If this checkbox is off, breaking the call and breaking everything else when user clicks "x" would be reasonable behavior. But if this checkbox is on (which is the default), clicking "x" should just minimize application to the system tray (without breaking the call or anything else).
At least, if somebody really needs the current behavior (on clicking "x" don't close the application but break the call), then there should be still a separate option for a normal behavior (on clicking "x" just minimize application to tray without breaking the calls).

Just stumbled over this and couldn't believe that this is real. How can something like this happen? So please just even give us a close dialog to confirm the closing :)

x 3 - happens to me several times a day. Specifically, Skype for Business provides a warning dialog box that closing a conversation window will end the call to eliminate accidental hang-ups. I get the need to leave a foreground window for an active call (otherwise you won't know whether your mic is open) but please simply add an active call warning dialog like SfB to fix this problem.

I get disconnected so many times due to this. Clicking the X button should just minimize the application to the taskbar like it does in all other sections of the application
Eric Renken commented
There are many times I am in a meeting, and I just want to hide the window so I can get to something else and I click the X, and in doing so, I am kicked out of my meeting.
