  1. Disappearing messages and replies

    With the Windows 10 Teams app, this has happened a few times now: I post a message in a channel and a co-worker responds to it. I get the notification that they replies to my message and I can see it in the Activity tab. However, when I navigate to the channel, their response is not visible.

    Additionally, I've quit out of Teams and restarted. When I navigated back the channel in question, my original message is no longer visible.

    Not sure what exact steps are necessary to reproduce the issue because it doesn't always happen.

    My colleague can see…

  2. 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.

  3. Provide ability to remove users added to recurring meetings' chats

    We have the following scenario that cannot be remedied without deleting a recurring meeting:
    1. User A and B have a recurring weekly meeting in Teams.
    2. User C is invited to join the call on this meeting during one instance.
    3. Even though User C has not been invited to the recurring meeting, User C now has access to the Teams chat of the subsequent recurring meeting instances.

    This seems like a huge bug that you cannot remove a user from seeing the chat of a meeting to which they are normally not a member. I just spoke with…

  4. out of office in group chat

    When in a group chat with a person out of office, you get that bar at the bottom saying so and so is out of office and may not reply. Which is cool, and you can dismiss it, great. It keeps coming back, over and over. I dismiss it, and minutes later it's there again. Make it stop!

  5. 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

  6. Linked workbooks in Excel

    I have created an Excel workbook that is linked to 10 other workbooks in the same Team. They are all saved within the Team's filing structure. When one of the linked books is opened, an error stating 'Links Disabled: Links to external workbooks are not supported and have been disabled.'
    I am trying to encourage my workplace to move over to using Teams as our primary file sharing platform, but this is a major issue and will halt that progress.

  10. Sharepoint tabs won't load

    When adding a SharePoint tab to a channel, it will sometimes fail to load. Sometimes this can correlate with not being logged into the office 365 website through a separate browser. It also does not produce any error, the tab stays blank. Other users have found it works better to add it as a website tab, which prompts for login if the problem occurs. Should the expected behavior be that the tab loads because you are logged into teams and shouldn't need to login again?

    This is another thread of users discussing this problem:

    The application closes randomly without notice on MAC.

    Other applications such as Skype don't have this problem.

  14. Files tab no longer opens General folder

    The link to the General folder in the associated SharePoint document register is broken. This prevents attachment to be added to Conversations. Please make it possible to edit the Files link so that correct function can be reestablished. This would also allow people to use the Files tab to point to their prefered location rather than a predefined location based on Channel Name. This is a serious issue inhibiting adoption of Teams in my Company.

  15. Correct - "Your message is too long. Please shorten it before sending"

    I support a team who is using TEAMS to share code snippets, they are increasingly getting this message, and I believe it has to do with line breaks in the code. There has to be a way to increase the buffer, or do something so that they can send these types of messages, or is there a workaround, a method they can share these things that won't trigger the message?

  16. Change status automatically to busy when in a meeting

    As the previous one got marked as completed (with comments disabled) I'll open a new one as a bug.

    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18629839-change-status-automatically-to-busy-when-in-a-meet?tracking_code=733718c26a9639ef6201d72700ec7dfb

    I tried this multiple times but could not get it to work. It works fine in Skype4b but not Teams I tried restarting both or one of them but nothing helped. Currently on teams version 1.0.00.2845.

    If it helps I also have the general status problems reported elsewhere (as do my colleagues). Mainly this means that status is set to away even when I'm actively working at the computer (but not using Teams at the moment). Often it also means…

  18. Fix Teams crash on Mac OS Catalina when USB headset is plugged in

    On Mac OS Catalina (beta), Teams is crashing if a USB headset is plugged in. Teams goes to white screen, crashes, tries to restart, white screen, crash, then gives “glitch” error.

    Community thread here with multiple people reporting same issue.

  19. when copying a message background should not be copied too

    When you select a message and copy it to "MS Word" for example, the background is also copied.
    Instead, only the text should be copied.

    Two options a least, copy formatted or not formatted.

  20. Wiki "section locked"

    I regularly encounter 'Section Locked' editing the Wiki "Someone else is editing this section."

    I am the only user - It happens after (more or less whenever) I lose my Internet and/or am forced to restart teams.

    How do I unlock it - and if the 'someone else' is plainly me.. why lock it at all?
