  1. 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.

      • Teams has hijacked several keyboard shortcuts

        Teams has hijacked several keyboard shortcuts as of early december, and will not allow them to be used even in other programmes.
        This is particularly annoying as one of them, ctrl+alt+d, is probably the most used shortcut on my keyboard - I use it a couple of times a minute while working. Is it possible to make these keyboard shortcuts reassignable, or at least to stop Teams from interrupting other programmes?

          Upon further review, I realized this fix is in the desktop client vs. the backend. Our first desktop release after the holidays will include this fix. I’m truly sorry for the delay!

          • 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.

            • I'm missing some chat history

              I have a chat with 2 colleagues. I saw some messages from one colleague in our chat on my Android phone on my way to work. When I got to work and started Teams for Windows 10 I started chatting with my colleague again, but I was missing a big chunk of the conversation history. Any idea what might be going on? It’s a real bummer not knowing if I’m missing messages. Especially weird that I saw it in one client (Android) but not the other (Windows 10).

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • Teams Still Scrolling Up

                    Teams Chat is still scrolling up (sometimes several pages) every time the text entry box expands to include more text. It's extremely disruptive.

                    If I had the option, I'd use Slack/Discord instead. But I'm stuck using Teams, so please fix this bug.

                    • Can't delete automatically generated conversation entry for a meeting recording

                      After recording a channel meeting, an entry with a link to the Stream video gets posted in the conversations. I can't/couldn't find a way to delete that conversation entry.

                      I can delete the video in Stream, but can't get rid of the conversation entry in the Teams channel.

                      Team is set to "owners can delete all messages" and I'm a team owner.

                          In the Windows application, when I press the 'x' to close the window, it will take about 1-2 seconds before the window actually closes

                          • App crashing on iOS 12

                            Hello, I know this is early but I just wanted to be sure you are aware that the Microsoft Teams app is crashing on startup when running on iOS 12. I know you have no obligation to get things fixed for a beta operating system, but it would be greatly appreciated :)

                            • 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.

                              • Bug creating multiple plans in a Teams Channel

                                We have multiple channels within a team (e.g. Sales) and have added Planner links to each one. The first General channel was linked to the plan created automatically when the Team was created and this shows ok in Planner itself (as the Sales plan). However when we've added Planner links to other channels and selected Create New Plan the plan has been created and linked in Teams but when opening in Planner only the original Sales plan is showing. So we can create multiple plans from teams but cannot view them in Planner. The workaround is to go to Teams,…

                                • Cannot share files in a Chat

                                  In a Chat, if I click either the PaperClip or the Files Tab, I cannot attach a file.
                                  This applies to both the desktop and web versions of the application.
                                  Have uninstalled teams, rebooted, then reinstalled the desktop app.
                                  Have OneDrive for business set up.
                                  An solution?

                                      • 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.

                                        • Enable history to have a longer history vs. needing to load when scrolling up

                                          When trying to review messages, only the last 4-5 messages load, and to get further history, you have to wait for each message to load while searching through historical conversations. It would be great if these were automatically available for the last ~50 message so users don't have to wait to review recent conversations.
