  1. "Copy link" (aka permalink) doesn't work properly (bug)

    I'm using Teams on a Mac.

    Today I opened up Teams and was delighted to discover that there is now a "Copy link" option under the three-dot menu on each message. Unfortunately it doesn't work. Upon using it I would have expected to get a URL in my clipboard (pretty safe assumption for a menu item labelled "Copy link") but that's not what happened. Instead, this is what ended up in my clipboard:

      • Stop scrolling while I type a message.

        When I am typing a message, whether in chat or channel, the conversation window scrolls up for as long as I'm typing for. A message this long will scroll up a few dozen lines, while a much longer message will scroll to the beginning of the conversation.

          This year-old bug has popped back up, as some of you may have noticed.

          It is only affecting users who are scrolled at 85%. If you are experiencing this, please send me user logs so the team can crush this bug!

          Thank you :-)

        • New channel have old deleted channel's name and is unusable

          Another member of my team tried to add another channel, but the new channel have an old channel's name. Old channel was deleted, bug appears for each time he try it.
          The new channel is unusable, the conversation tab isn't working and no one else.
          He see the new channel's name with the last channel's name created (and not working either), and I see his new channel with my last channel's name created and deleted...

          The new bugged channel is always added to a link like "1 other channel". Look at the screens.

          Thank you,

          Have a nice day,

          Bye

          • Status not maintained in MS Teams

            The status is not maintained in the MS Teams. If I choose my status to be Do not disturt, it automatically changes to be Online or Away. And most of the time I have to struggle to change my status change in effect.

            Also, 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 these bugs?

            • Microsoft teams sending <div>***</div> to skype users

              Randomly, team users sending messages to skype users are sending <div>text text text</div> to the skype users. So on teams it looks fine but for skype users they are seeing <div>'s wrapping the text of the message. It does seem to go away after a few minutes of use.

              • Hide a user from Microsoft Teams

                It would be very beneficial to be able to hide a user from showing as a Microsoft Teams user. Right now it is super confusing for users when old staff members whose mailboxes are still being used show in Microsoft Teams. There is currently no option to hide these users from showing as contacts in chats.

                • Removed users can see notifications and partial text on threads which they commented

                  1. Add a user to a private team
                  2. Have the user comment on a thread
                  3. Remove the user's access to the team
                  4. The removed user will still receive notifications every time a different user replies to that thread.
                  5. The user will see the preview text in the notification
                  6. When the user clicks the notification, they do not have access (as expected)

                  • clean up deleted conversations

                    When a conversation is deleted, it should be removed from the thread. If the conversation is a top level conversation, there's nothing more confusing than to see replies and nothing to put them in context.

                    • Linking a Specific folder on O365 Sharepoint - not working

                      when adding a sharepoint as a tab it does let you add a sharepoint link which means you can specify a particular folder or file, rather than add the whole library.

                      when entering this link it does recognise it but click on it does not do nothing and you are forced to click NEXT, on the next page it only gives you the libraries that are available but ther is no way to assign a folder within that library.

                      is there another way or is this feature not avaible?

                      thanks

                      • Teams has hijacked several keyboard shortcuts

                        Teams has hijacked several keyboard shortcuts as of early december, and will not allow them to be used even in other programmes.
                        This is particularly annoying as one of them, ctrl+alt+d, is probably the most used shortcut on my keyboard - I use it a couple of times a minute while working. Is it possible to make these keyboard shortcuts reassignable, or at least to stop Teams from interrupting other programmes?

                              • Deployment

                                Microsoft - What is wrong with you!?
                                Release a .exe file to the public and let the enterprise figure out how to deploy it?
                                Why is there no Windows installer (*.msi)
                                Why isn't the Windows app in Microsoft Store?
                                Why isn't there a click-to-run.exe files like all other Office applications?
                                Why doesn't it follow channel updates like other Office programs (like Monthly or Broad)?

                                Remove Microsoft Teams from the public and re-do-it correct. This isn't a playground!

                                      User Status is extremely slow to update. It is 7:30 am and the last programmer to leave last night around 5:00 pm is still shown as active even though he is not met.

                                      The user status is very helpful because it tells you if you can expect immediate response. I find myself double checking with Skype for Business when I need to know if someone is available or not.

                                      • App crashing on iOS 12

                                        Hello, I know this is early but I just wanted to be sure you are aware that the Microsoft Teams app is crashing on startup when running on iOS 12. I know you have no obligation to get things fixed for a beta operating system, but it would be greatly appreciated :)

                                        • volume

                                          Since the update during the week of May 7, 2018, every time I join a meeting, my system volume gets adjusted to be extremely high, which is highly uncomfortable with headphones.

                                          Previously, the volume wasn't adjusted at all. Please restore it to this state.
