Refresh Button for Teams
I am using the Windows Team application and sometimes I can't tell if I am looking at the offline information or online information until I click on several tabs and channel to prompt me to sign in. Please create a refresh button so we can make sure we are logged in.

Please create it
Please add the refresh button. It's a much needed feature.

Almost every day after my computer wakes from sleep Teams starts showing generic icons for everything (channels, people, etc.) rather than the actual icons. When something like that (rare) happens in Slack I can just refresh and everything is happy. With Teams I currently have to restart the application. A reset button or keyboard shortcut would solve this.

I also have this problem. Teams show staff as online (green status), so I type a message to someone - which may take several minutes for something complicated. After I hit Enter, the statuses are updated and the person is now unavailable. It is so frustrating! Why doesn't it update the statuses in the background, as soon as I start typing? Or better - as others have suggested add a Refresh button, add an F5 handler, anything! At the moment, clicking on other channels seems to force a status refresh.

joined an invite to another o365 tenancy in the browser and the company would not show up in the App before Quitting the Teams App and restarting it. A Refresh button would have been nice for this!
Occasionally my Teams calls screen freezes up and all my speed dials go away. I have to either sign out and then sign back in or wait 5-10 minutes for the screen to refresh on its own to bring them back. Please add a refresh button to the top of the Teams desktop app so that we can refresh these screens quicker.
If not at at least for the Calendar Tab
Sometimes I have to switch from Chat to another Teams app and back to refresh online statuses of my team members. Refresh button would be very useful.

It takes a really long time to see the current status of co-workers. Need a refresh button in the desktop app to be sure we are seeing as well as beaming the latest availability status!

I am using TEAMS and during some long presentation with PowerPoint, TEAMS screen is sometimes frozen.
The only way I found is to be disconnected from TEAMS meeting presentation and I re-connect to it just after.
It works as I can see the next slides.
But I would rather prefer to click on a refresh button instead of disconnecting to avoid loosing views of some slides Thanks
refresh option, please.
I have the same issue
how do I refresh the chat because I am not seeing what other people type. How can I fix this problem?

Yes plzz it is very necessary. I don't get update of my class in desktop (However on Teams mobile I get updates about my online classe)
Also add F5 key as a shortcut for refreshing Teams
Please this is necessary. I have been surfing the internet looking for this solution without knowing there isn't one. fix it

I'm working remotely as are a lot of people in the current environment. My boss says he has posted instructions in Teams but my chat screen has not updated with this. I'm on wi-fi, but it's reasonably stable. How can I get my chat to refresh to give me the latest comments? Kinda frustrating.

This issue is extremely important! Currently, if I log on before a team member (contact) in specific chat group, it looks like they are off line. It is vital for pharmacists to know what contact is available and their status. We are checking patient prescriptions remotely and depend on a small group of contacts (technicians) to be available at any given moment. I personally have experienced an issue where it looked like ALL technicians were offline- and I had a prescrition with an issue for a baby that needed clarification or correction. Remote pharmacists do not have a direct line to the stores like the technicians and would have to wait on hold- putting the patient at risk. If we find an error on a prescription we need our technicians to call the stores immediately, so that a prescription with a wrong medication, wrong strength, or wrong directions is not sold to a patient, taken, or used before being corrected. Time is of the essence. We are trying to prevent patient harm. I can't express the importance of the refresh feature and the accuracy it can bring.
I agree. TEAMS does not seem to reflect the current status of other members of you team in TEAMS. It needs a refresh button or setting for refresh to be accurate as to who is logged in.
