  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  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.

  5. Enable responding to specific messages in chat via desktop

    When using chat on mobile, you are allowed to reply to a targeted message and when a user engages with this, it takes them to the original message responded to. Please enable this when using desktop

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Cancellare la cronologia delle chat

    Al momento nom è possibile cancellare le chat.
    Per ragioni di privacy ci dovrebbe essere la possibilità di cancellare definitivamente la cronologia delle chat

  18. PLEASE fix desktop app performance on macOS!! Constant high CPU usage and memory leaks!

    I'm running Teams desktop app on macOS Catalina and the performance is TERRIBLE! If I get on a single 1-on-1 video call, the fan on my 2017 MacBook Pro starts spinning like crazy, CPU usage goes up to about 85%, and app begins to use over 1GB of RAM! To put it in perspective, I can get on a Zoom call with 10 other people, CPU usage is at less than 20%, and memory usage never passes 300MB

    I've read on other forums to disable GPU acceleration in the settings, but that has only marginally helped.

    Please fix your app!

  20. 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)
