  2. Can’t add guests to Teams unless they’re already in the AAD tenant

    I'm having an issue that doesn't seem to match up with the expected admin experience. Essentially, I can't add a guest that is not in the AAD tenant through Teams desktop/web apps. I get the "We didn't find any matches" error.

    If the guest is in the AAD (by being in an Office 365 group, at least), then I can add the guest to the Team via the apps.

    For AAD, I can add guests and for Office 365 Groups, I have "Let group members outside the organization access group content" enabled. I logged this issue on the tech community…

  3. The status feature behavior is very unstable

    My team mates and I try to change our status regularly manually. It does not work 90% of the time.

    When we select a status and try to make the change, the status stays the same.

  4. Cannot resize MS Teams window height

    I am unable to resize the MS Teams window by height, although I can resize the application by width. The normal double-facing arrow does not display when hovering over the upper edge as it used to. This is a problem since the bottom of the MS Teams window displays behind my computer's toolbar (Windows 10) so I cannot easily access Feedback, add attachments to messages, etc without maximizing to full screen (screenshots attached). I can maximize MS Teams to full screen as a workaround, but this makes multitasking on a single screen especially tedious.

    Microsoft Teams Version 1.1.00.2251 (64-bit). It…

  5. Can't favorite a contact until a chat is started

    Looks like you can't add a Chat contact as a favorite until you start a conversation with them. If no conversation has happened yet, you can click the star to favorite but it does nothing.

  8. Cannot update profile picture

    My coworkers and I are unable to change our individual profile pictures. This is the process I am following.
    Bottom left Initials icon -> Update Profile Picture -> Upload picture -> Save
    This results in the picture vanishing briefly, and then reappearing with only the first initial of my name as the icon. This is the case for most people within our company. We are able to get it to save on the Android app, but the picture is only viewable to yourself and not anyone else. We have tried the web app, desktop app, and mobile app without much…

  9. Contact Group Issue in TEAM Chat

    I have created several contact lists for various groups. I cannot figure out how to start a chat / send a message to individual GROUPS / Contacts. Please fix this as I would think the point of creating a Contact list is to enable users to quickly and easily send messages to a select group of people.

  10. Image copying doesn't work in the desktop app

    Copying of images from the Teams desktop app (Windows) to other programs doesn't work. When I click RMB on the image (for example one sent to me by my colleague on chat) and selects "Copy image", the image seems to be copied to clipboard, but when I try to paste it somewhere else e.g. in Word or another program, I only get something that looks like an empty image. Tested on several user accounts and computers.

  11. Call progress tones do not honor call device selection

    When initiating a new call via Teams, The call progress tones (ringtone) plays through the default sound device instead of the users selected calling device.

    This can cause confusion if the default sound device is muted whilst the user is wearing a headset as they have no feedback a call is in progress.

  12. Fix Forms in MS Teams tab on mobile

    Have a bad experience using MS Teams with an added form on mobile (IOS, Android).

    Have a MS Teams Channel with an added form in a tab. Form is created via the MS Teams, hence it is not personal.

    Working on a mobile i cannot fill-out the form - but am taken out of the MS Team to the forms.office.com - website...

    It works when i use the "website" tab - but that is a workaround. Please improve the Forms-app!

  13. Transparent team picture gets dark background

    I'd consider this a bug: if you upload a team picture with a transparent background (a PNG) then the picture's background will be dark, despite the UI around it being light. See attached screenshot. I'd expect a transparent PNG to remain transparent.

    Uploading the same image with white background provides the expected result.

  14. give/allow control toolbar does not show up

    When sharing the screen I cannot Give Control to others. The "toolbar" that others see when they want to give control or allow it is not displayed on my screen.
    I can just take control if the presenter is the other machine.
    I believe this used to work prior some windows updates.

  16. When using a Team Code to join a team, I see; "Couldn't join this team with that code. Double-check the code or try another one."

    When using a Team Code to join a team as a Guest, I see; "Couldn't join this team with that code. Double-check the code or try another one." - is that an issue, or the result of a teams/tenancy restriction somewhere? The Team is Public and I'm certain the Team Code I'm using is correct.

  17. Move: Cannot Move File to Another Channel - "Locked for Editing"

    Trying to move a file from one channel to another, an error pop up appears above the system tray. Unfortunately, the error is truncated with an elipsis and disappears upon clicking.

    I tried accessing the Sharepoint side of Teams to try moving the file that way. I did get an error of which I could observe the full message:

    "We couldn't move the file because it's locked for editing or has been modified or deleted."

    The file has not been deleted for sure, and I can access and edit as desired. Please make this work so we can move files…

  19. URL Support in Teams via SharePoint

    Any URLs posted on a SharePoint site show up as documents within Microsoft Teams. Users must go to the SharePoint and then go to the URL. They should be able to click on the URL to launch the website directly from Teams.

  20. A folder's Last Modified date does not reflect most recent update made within the folder

    The "modified" date shown for a folder does not change when contents of a folder are modified. For example, I created a folder called "Project Meetings" on 21-Nov-2017. Each week, new files (or folders) are added to this folder however, the modified date of the folder has remained "21-Nov-2017", even though its contents were modified as recently as 20-Dec-2017.

    This is not consistent with how Windows presents folders and their modified date. If a file within a folder was updated on 20-Dec-2017, the modified date of the folder becomes 20-Dec-2017. Teams should work the same way and be consistent with…
