  1. 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!

  2. Linked workbooks in Excel

    I have created an Excel workbook that is linked to 10 other workbooks in the same Team. They are all saved within the Team's filing structure. When one of the linked books is opened, an error stating 'Links Disabled: Links to external workbooks are not supported and have been disabled.'
    I am trying to encourage my workplace to move over to using Teams as our primary file sharing platform, but this is a major issue and will halt that progress.

    Anytime I click on the drafts folder in Outlook 2016, the Teams COM add-in causing the Outlook client to crash. I am able to get around this by disabling the Teams COM add-in.

  4. Clicking on a OneNote file result after performing a search returns "Sorry, we couldn't find your file."

    I can navigate to the notebook via the OneNote tab, I just can't open it from the search results.

  6. Bug: Email notifications not sending

    Email notifications are not being sent. I’ve tried @ mentions, direct chat, and followed channels, on several accounts. I have my account set to receive Banner and Email notifications (see attached), but I have not received any email notifications in any of those cases.

  8. Update User Status

    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.

  10. iOS Notifications still seem to have issues

    I can see a lot of posts about iOS notification bugs, and them apparently being fixed, but on my iPhone X with iOS 11 they have not worked for some time now.

    I have now changed the settings from "When not active on desktop" to "always" and still have issues.

    I often go into the app and see many conversations which should have sent me a notification.

    My desktop app notification settings are attached.

    I am missing vital messages due to this bug, so would like to see a fix.

  11. 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.

  13. 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)

  14. Annoying user experience. Notifications do not respect DND on MAC.


    1. Why does teams still show notifications when I have set my MAC to DND?


    2. Notifications do not have a close option. It makes things more annoying.


    3. Please give an option for the user to set the status manually instead of team governing my status automatically.

  16. Provide ability to remove users added to recurring meetings' chats

    We have the following scenario that cannot be remedied without deleting a recurring meeting:
    1. User A and B have a recurring weekly meeting in Teams.
    2. User C is invited to join the call on this meeting during one instance.
    3. Even though User C has not been invited to the recurring meeting, User C now has access to the Teams chat of the subsequent recurring meeting instances.

    This seems like a huge bug that you cannot remove a user from seeing the chat of a meeting to which they are normally not a member. I just spoke with…

  17. Pictures don't always upload

    Copy/Pasted pictures don't always upload properly. Sometimes, they show in the chat window with a broken thumbnail image, but then they show properly on the second try.

  18. Bose Bluetooth headphones keeps dropping during meeting

    Almost every meeting I attend on Microsoft Teams forces my Bose wireless headphones to disconnect during the meeting on my 2016 Macbook pro. Not only does it disconnect, but it unmutes my speakers on the Macbook so everyone in the office can hear what's happening in the meeting. It only happens on Teams and is really rather unacceptable. I avoid teams as much as possible as a result.

  20. teams admin center

    Guys,

    I can't use the new Teams and Skype Admin Center from either IE or Edge. Had to use Chrome. I keep getting a Security Zone error. I've added the domains in IE (don't know where to do it in Edge) but still got the same error. Ditching both Microsoft browsers and using Chrome instead.

    Security zone setting error
    Please make sure these two domains are added to the trusted sites in IE or Microsoft Edge: https://admin.teams.microsoft.com and https://login.microsoftonline.com. If you are using other browsers, please close all browser windows and try again.

    Error Code: SECURITYZONEERROR
    Correlation…
