  1. 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).

    • 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.

        • 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…

          • UI not updating on new message / chat

            Pretty much our whole company has the same issue (including mac, windows 10, windows server 2016)

            On new message, we see a notification, and we see a message-marker on the chat-botton, buth after opening the chat, nothing is marked or highlighted.
            One has to actively click any of the chats to make the ui refresh, so the highlightings are shown correctly.
            This is not even working correctly when the current chat receives a message.

            • 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.

                  • Close the Notification Loop

                    Notifications could be tightened up a bit.

                    1) Sometimes when I read messages that cause notifications, the red notification lingers on the channel until I click the channel on the lefthand side.

                    2) Sometimes after I read a notified message, the Teams icon continues to blink on my taskbar after I've read it.

                    3) When I acknowledge a notification on the desktop application, the notification remains on my phone and vice-versa.

                        • link error handling

                          If someone in your organization sends you a link to a resource in a channel where you are not a member, you do not receive an error. Instead you are redirected to the General Channel of some other Team where you have membership.

                          Example
                          Bob is a member of teams foo, bar, and baz
                          Sally is a member of teams foo and baz
                          Bob sends Sally a Teams link to the Marketing tab in the WizBang channel of the bar team
                          Sally click the link and is taken to the General channel of the foo Team
                          Sally has no idea…

                          • wiki link

                            Fix the Link Markup for wiki. If i want to shorten a long url by using the [text](url) pattern and copy-paste the url, it is automatically transfromed to an link and destroys the markup-pattern. It's only possible to type the url on your own, which is very annoying e.g. for sharpoint file urls.

                                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!

                                • Update channel - messages are not shown / missing

                                  I am missing messages in "activity" and in the channel. (Desktop-Version 32-Bit) ... same happened on a Mac-Version.

                                  No - those messages where not deleted by the user after they got posted.

                                  This is a Killer-Bug which needs attention ASAP since a communication tool that cannot be trusted in delivering the communication just will be replaced asap.

                                  When looking at Teams at colleagues, I noticed that they had entries that I don't have in my Teams (Windows 10). Even more strange: When I look at my iOS app, I see those messages.

                                  • 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: SECURITY_ZONE_ERROR
                                    Correlation ID: 48fe48cc-1c3a-4bf8-a731-1947150b4a3f …

                                    • Update files are stored on the MAC taking up a lot of disk space

                                      It seems every time Mac app updates itself, it stores the update file to Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams/tmp folder.
                                      The update files are named as Teams_osx (1).zip, Teams_osx (2).zip etc. Each file seems to be around 80 MB. Since the Mac app updates itself constantly (microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-..), they start consuming significant amount of disk space. When I first noticed this, there was ~70GB of update files! Garbage collection would be welcome.

                                        • 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…
