      • 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

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    Causing problem might be network issues and my…

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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?

                                        • sending messages is causes timeline above it to jump back days or weeks

                                          When I am chatting with team members, each time a send a message the chat history above jumps back days or weeks...and I have to scroll back down to the bottom. Very annoying.
