  1. External Users included in Group Chats

    Although it is stated that External users can't be added for some reason I've managed to do so but can't add more now. Please include this. Super essential. No reason why a group chat can't have external users.

  2. Disable opening when right click on system task tray icon

    When I right click the system task tray icon, the entire Teams window is opened. Considering that "Open" is an option in the context menu, it doesn't make sense that it's automatically opening. My use-case is that I want to quickly change my status without opening the window but, when I right click to do that, it opens the window anyways. This works as I would expect using Skype for Business and so I think Teams should work the same way.

  3. Bug creating multiple plans in a Teams Channel

    We have multiple channels within a team (e.g. Sales) and have added Planner links to each one. The first General channel was linked to the plan created automatically when the Team was created and this shows ok in Planner itself (as the Sales plan). However when we've added Planner links to other channels and selected Create New Plan the plan has been created and linked in Teams but when opening in Planner only the original Sales plan is showing. So we can create multiple plans from teams but cannot view them in Planner. The workaround is to go to Teams,…

  4. Teams not generating thumbnails for youtube videos anymore

    It used to be the case that whenever you posted a link to a youtube video, it would generate a thumbnail, but this is not working anymore.

    It'd be great to have this back on and also make what's in here https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38782594-display-youtube-video-title-and-description-when-s

  6. spell check Adding new words

    Can we add new words to the spell checker in Teams. My browser and office work with custom directories - extending that to work with teams would be fantastic - particularly as we tend to use a lot of technical acronyms and jargon not in the current dictionary

  8. Chat with Guests

    I have added a guest to our AD. Guest access is enabled in teams. I can see the guest in chat and have sent them a chat message. I manually installed Teams for the Guest on their mac. They are not receiving my messages. Guest access needs to work in chats as well, not just in Teams.

  9. Cannot share files in a Chat

    In a Chat, if I click either the PaperClip or the Files Tab, I cannot attach a file.
    This applies to both the desktop and web versions of the application.
    Have uninstalled teams, rebooted, then reinstalled the desktop app.
    Have OneDrive for business set up.
    An solution?

  10. On Linux (Ubuntu) the beta MSTeams continues consume CPU after a call.

    On Linux (Ubuntu) the beta MSTeams continues consume CPU after a call. 100% Reproducible on my laptop. Noted that by noise from my laptop's cooling fan not being turned off without any notable reason after a morning's daily meeting.

  11. Allow removing all blocked domains in Teams admin center

    When you go to the Teams admin center -> External sharing and add a domain as blocked, you can not remove it afterwards. You get an error "You must have at least one domain in the block list". Why is this if there are no blocked domains by default anyway?

  12. No Audio Devices Showing

    Hello,

    The issue I am having with Microsoft Teams is that suddenly all my audio devices are not showing up in the program. Teams does not detect any audio devices at all, neither my digital mixing console nor the computer's own built-in HD Audio jacks. See screenshot.

    The Windows audio control panel detects all connected audio devices as normal, as do all other programs on the PC. The issue is with Teams only.

    Version number, according to About menu is "1.1.00.25457 (64-bit). It was last updated on 10/2/18."

    I hope this issue gets fixed soon, as Teams is completely unusable…

  13. 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!

  14. 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…

  16. Meeting links remain active after ending

    This is critical in K-12. The links to meetings are staying open, even after the end of a meeting (scheduled or not). I can safely assume this is a big deal in any use, but it is especially critical in K-12 education, where we simply cannot have students/parents/etc. "borrowing" our meetings to have their own video chat room!

    I desperately need a way to completely and finally end a meeting (and its link) when a meeting is complete.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. OneNote in MS Teams - Copy link to page not working

    steps to reproduce:
    - browse to a team in MS Teams using the team's OneNote notebook
    - go to the tab "OneNote"
    - right-click a page other than the first page of the notebook
    - select "Copy link to this page"
    - send that link to someone else or open it yourself

    Result:
    You will always end up on the first page of the notebook. Doing the same via the OneNote client application, it works fine.

  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?
