  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. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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!

  17. 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.
