  1. Video Sharing is Disabled by the Administrator

    We are getting "Video Sharing is Disabled by the Administrator". This happened when the guest joins the teams meeting via browser or the team client and enables video in the lobby before being admitted into the meeting, the guest was then admitted and got the error message "Video Sharing is Disabled by the Administrator". The guest exited the meeting and re-joined and was then able to turn on the video.

    "Allow IP video" is enabled in the team admin center... This sounds like a bug?

  2. TEAMS is THE WORST!

    You forced the replacement of Skype for Business without having the same (even minimal) functionality available in Teams.

    1.) There is no pop-out chat window for participating in multiple conversations at once.

    2.) No easy way to see missed chats (flashing icon isn’t in real time or noticeable); No Outlook notifications of missed chat summary.

    3.) No Chat summary auto-cataloged in Outlook Conversations

    4.) Lack of searching of previous Conversations

    5.) Lack of deletion of some Conversation parts

    6.) Automatic minimalization of Team Meeting screen share when trying to access files or other content in Teams.

    7.) Lack of tight…

  3. Screen sharing - drop-downs on browser appear blank

    Microsoft Teams made the drop-downs on IE11 and Chrome appear as blank black boxes when sharing the screen.

    My client was sharing screens with me and mentioned a potential bug on our site, we realised that stopping screen-share fixed the issue.

  4. 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.

  5. Teams does not use regional settings correctly

    Teams overrides regional settings from Windows 10 and shows dates incorrectly. I want to use english UI because of international environment but correct local regional settings for dates, times etc. This is not possible now. Please fix so that Teams follows Windows 10 regional settings or that I can keep UI in english but regional settings correctly as in my country.

  6. Call progress tones do not honor call device selection

    When initiating a new call via Teams, The call progress tones (ringtone) plays through the default sound device instead of the users selected calling device.

    This can cause confusion if the default sound device is muted whilst the user is wearing a headset as they have no feedback a call is in progress.

  8. External Users included in Group Chats

    Although it is stated that External users can't be added for some reason I've managed to do so but can't add more now. Please include this. Super essential. No reason why a group chat can't have external users.

  9. Teams Application conditional access does not work with SharePoint Online in a tab

    We have conditional access enabled to control access to M365 tenant. If you embed a Website tab that points to SharePoint Online the conditional access fails. Error is "You cannot access this resource".
    Note that SharePoint Online is accessible if you go direct to the URL so conditional access does work outside of the teams application.

    The web version of Teams also works - however switching to the web version to access the tab is not a desirable solution.

  10. Fix the secondary ringer to actually work as set. I want ring on speakers, not headphones.

    Please fix the secondary ringer to actually work as set. I want ring on speakers, not headphones. Alex says this feature is completed and released to public, but it doesn't work in Teams Version 1.3.00.3564 (32 bit) updated 03/23/20 running on Windows 7 Pro ESU.

    I need to be able to have headphone output as system default audio device, and internal laptop PC speakers as primary comms device AND secondary ringer. Both Speaker and Secondary Ringer are set to "Speaker - Speakers / Headphones (Realtek Audio)". However, the secondary ringer settings are not being respected, and it ONLY rings on…

  11. 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!

  12. Abilitiy to add spell-checked word to dictionary and to turn off spell checking altogether


    1. Ability to add spell-checked word to dictionary!


    2. Ability to turn off spell checking!


    This is a bug, and Teams should never have been released with it!

  15. Pop-up windows do not appear in live team meetings when sharing screens

    Need to allow any application whether used in the cloud or on the cloud to show pop-up windows while in screen sharing mode. I load the app and can share on screen but if I open a sub-window (example Outlook open, then create new mail) the new mail pop-up window does not show on shared screen but initial outlook window does.

    If I use outlook from the portal.office.com window it is not available when sharing my desktop at all.

  16. Android - Calls should respect 'Do Not Disturb'

    Current state (Android): Teams calls do not respect system 'Do Not Disturb'.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1) Enable 'Do Not Disturb' on an Android device running Teams
    2) Call Android device from 2nd device - Teams will play a notification ringtone.

    Expected result:
    Teams should not play a notification ringtone when system 'Do Not Disturb' is enabled

  17. download

    Why are downloads going to a hardcoded c:\username\downloads location as opposed to the default download folder that has been associated within the OS via Explorer? If you use a remote user drive having downloads go to the local C drive is not a good idea. Can this be changed to follow how things are mapped in Explorer? This seems like a bug to me.

  19. allow the floating toolbar to dock somewhere NOT in the middle of the screen!

    Must be a bug - HATE the toolbar always floating in front of what's being presented.

  20. 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.
