  1. Block Phone Numbers Ringing Through

    Phone numbers that I've taken the time to block under Calls are still ringing through, defeating the purpose of having them blocked. If a phone number is blocked, it should not ring through.

  2. Sharepoint tabs won't load

    When adding a SharePoint tab to a channel, it will sometimes fail to load. Sometimes this can correlate with not being logged into the office 365 website through a separate browser. It also does not produce any error, the tab stays blank. Other users have found it works better to add it as a website tab, which prompts for login if the problem occurs. Should the expected behavior be that the tab loads because you are logged into teams and shouldn't need to login again?

    This is another thread of users discussing this problem:

  3. 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.

  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

  5. Fix Teams crash on Mac OS Catalina when USB headset is plugged in

    On Mac OS Catalina (beta), Teams is crashing if a USB headset is plugged in. Teams goes to white screen, crashes, tries to restart, white screen, crash, then gives “glitch” error.

    Community thread here with multiple people reporting same issue.

  6. Microsoft teams sending <div>***</div> to skype users

    Randomly, team users sending messages to skype users are sending <div>text text text</div> to the skype users. So on teams it looks fine but for skype users they are seeing <div>'s wrapping the text of the message. It does seem to go away after a few minutes of use.

  7. Video Zoom Controls on Mobile Phones

    When doing a Teams Video from a mobile phone (Android Samsung S8) the picture in picture size looks good, however, the other Video Users explain that their view is overly zoomed in and all they can see are parts of the face etc.
    There needs to be a way to adjust this as it is not practical sitting so far away from the Phone itself as a workaround.
    Thanks

  8. Automatically remove single occurrence attendees from reoccurring Teams Meeting group chats

    If someone is added to a single occurrence of a reoccurring Teams Meeting they are also added to the meeting group chat; however will continue to be active (send and receive) in the meeting group chat for future meeting occurrences of which they're not participating in. The individual must either manually remove themselves from the group chat or someone from the meeting must manually remove them. If this is missed, it can potentially result in confidential or undesired information being inadvertently shared with the wrong people.

    I would like for the Teams app to be intelligent enough to identify that…

  9. 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.

  10. Disappearing messages and replies

    With the Windows 10 Teams app, this has happened a few times now: I post a message in a channel and a co-worker responds to it. I get the notification that they replies to my message and I can see it in the Activity tab. However, when I navigate to the channel, their response is not visible.

    Additionally, I've quit out of Teams and restarted. When I navigated back the channel in question, my original message is no longer visible.

    Not sure what exact steps are necessary to reproduce the issue because it doesn't always happen.

    My colleague can see…

  11. 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…

  12. 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?

  13. Meeting link disappearing

    Whenever I update a calendar invite in outlook to a teams meeting, the link is generated but when I send the invite out the link is removed. Mail/Calendar settings are set for HTML. I then have to manually link the meeting url.

  14. Teams Still Scrolling Up

    Teams Chat is still scrolling up (sometimes several pages) every time the text entry box expands to include more text. It's extremely disruptive.

    If I had the option, I'd use Slack/Discord instead. But I'm stuck using Teams, so please fix this bug.

  16. 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.

  17. 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!

  18. Program Startup Entry

    Don't add a startup item on Windows called "Program" without any additional details.

    It could be because this entry is malformed.

    It's listed as "C:\Program" Files\Teams Installer\Teams.exe --checkInstall --source=PROPLUS

    The quotation marks don't seem to be in the right place.

  20. PowerPoint Presentation Mode

    Teams should not provide notice messages while in Presenter mode in PowerPoint (Office Pro Plus). This doesn't occur with Skype. Thanks.
