  1. FIX TEAMS Away Status

    Teams will show me as AWAY even when I'm actively working on CPU. In the support forums, the individual working for Microsoft explained that teams reverts to "away" when the user is not active for more than 10 mins, HOWEVER, I'm seeing it revert even whilst continuously active on my CPU. I'm not the first person to bring this up, I know you've seen this forum (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/teams-away-setting-automatically-switching-on-when/950933a5-7dc3-4401-a164-23be32940986?page=3).

    Please fix this, as it eliminates the value of using teams. Why would I use teams if you're telling my boss I'm away when I'm not? I could simply tell my…

  3. Video Zoom Controls on Mobile Phones

    When doing a Teams Video from a mobile phone (Android Samsung S8) the picture in picture size looks good, however, the other Video Users explain that their view is overly zoomed in and all they can see are parts of the face etc.
    There needs to be a way to adjust this as it is not practical sitting so far away from the Phone itself as a workaround.
    Thanks

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Private Channel folder name is duplicated when synced in File Explorer

    Currently if I have a team called IT Admin, create a private channel called Test and sync it then in File Explorer on Windows it displays as IT Admin - Test - Test which is redundant and draws complaints from users. It should be displayed as IT Admin - Test, or IT - Test - Files would be workable. There is currently no way to edit the default folder location or name.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. A folder's Last Modified date does not reflect most recent update made within the folder

    The "modified" date shown for a folder does not change when contents of a folder are modified. For example, I created a folder called "Project Meetings" on 21-Nov-2017. Each week, new files (or folders) are added to this folder however, the modified date of the folder has remained "21-Nov-2017", even though its contents were modified as recently as 20-Dec-2017.

    This is not consistent with how Windows presents folders and their modified date. If a file within a folder was updated on 20-Dec-2017, the modified date of the folder becomes 20-Dec-2017. Teams should work the same way and be consistent with…

  16. spell check Adding new words

    Can we add new words to the spell checker in Teams. My browser and office work with custom directories - extending that to work with teams would be fantastic - particularly as we tend to use a lot of technical acronyms and jargon not in the current dictionary

  17. 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

  18. Fix PowerPoint animation issue when presenting in Teams

    I've just discovered that my PowerPoint animations are not displaying correctly for participants! The animations work perfectly fine in my presenter view within Teams, but everyone else on the call sees them incorrectly. The slides in question have a few animations to build up the slide. When viewed as an attendee, the animation is all over the place. I realise that a potential solution is not to include animation in my slide but I'd like to have confidence that the animation I see as a presenter is the same for attendees. The attached video is showing the two experiences side…

    Power BI tabs on Team channels displaying reports ignore the chosen date format on fields and instead show the US format (MM/DD/YYYY).

  20. 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.
