  1. Search Functionality is not working as expected

    Search functionality is not working. I was trying to find a conversation related to a word "FNTS" in one of our channel and the search yielded no result. We manually could scroll and find references to it, but the search showed zero results. This prompted us to probe more and we searched using a few more words and at times it gave some results but not all. This seems to be really buggy.. Is this something that you are trying to fix? I have championed the move from SLACK to TEAMS and am getting a lot of grief from some…

      • While I'm typing messages in any channel or chat, the page slowly scrolls up. It also does this when I get a new message so I have to scrol

        When I am typing a message, whether in chat or channel, the conversation window scrolls up for as long as I'm typing for. A message this long will scroll up a few dozen lines, while a much longer message will scroll to the beginning of the conversation.

        THIS BUG IS NOT FIXED. VERY ANNOYING. It also scrolls up everytime someone types a new message so I have to scroll down to read it....

          Me again. The team says this bug is happening when the user is at 85% zoom on Teams. Can you check to see if you are, and if the problem goes away if you go to a different zoom level? Please comment on this thread or email me at sparavi@microsoft.com with what you find, so I can crush this bug. Thank you!

        • 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 …

          • Change location of pop-up notification when chatting in a document

            The pop up notifications block the space where you are supposed to type when you are chatting on a document causing a major disturbance.

                  Push notification not stabile on iphones. All notification abilities switched on , however It may happen that you often miss the important message. We need a messanger like app to be 100% sure that new message will arrive and beep on phone. There is some bug in this this function as it not always work well.

                  • 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.

                    • Search of Wiki pages in Microsoft Teams not working

                      Currently, it is not posible to search for a Wiki page using the search of Microsoft Teams. It is showing the wiki page, but it gives the following error:

                      "Hmm… looks like this file doesn't have a preview we can show you"

                      It is quite normal that we would like to search for wiki, just like office documents, so that we can more easily find them.

                      Thank you!

                        • 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.

                            • 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…

                              • 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.

                                • Message toast appearing when set to Do Not Disturb and with Quiet Hours enabled.

                                  My boss doesn't want confidential IM's being displayed while screen sharing in meetings.

                                  I suggested turning on "Quiet Hours" - but he was still getting message toasts from Teams.

                                  Even after setting "Do Not Disturb" he was still getting toast containing potentially confidential info while screen sharing in another app (in this case WebEx).

                                  Please make Teams abide by Quiet Hours.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                        • 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.
