  1. Backticks don't work with pasted text

    If I copy something like a class name or error message, and then I go teams and type backtick, Ctrl-V, backtick, the pasted text does not get formatted like code. However, if I backspace after pasting and retype the last character and then add the backtick, code formatting works as expected.

  2. Make Take a Test links work

    If I paste a Take a Test link in a conversations post, the link doesn’t work. I made a quiz for my students and want an easy way to distribute the link to them.

    If the link is put in a Word doc or in OneNote, the link can’t be opened inside Teams either.

    So you need to make Teams accept the lockdown links used in Take a Test.

  3. no remove option on group chat?

    When you build an application, I am not sure why Microsoft always does this with the new applications when ever launched. This shows that Microsoft's testing team is so weak. I am talking about the [CHAT] option (Not the Groups). When you give a option to add multiple members in a group chat, how can you forget about removing the user from the same chat group? I see that this bug has been reporting since so long and MS is not taking care of it since long.

    This is the reason why I always hate using MS products.

  6. Channel in teams is in incorrect state and cannot remove it

    We tried to create new fresh channel but it's state is weird. We cannot post any message (error appears with 'Try again' and 'Delete' options) or event delete the channel to try creating it again. The only thing we can see is spinning circle on the top.

  7. Fix the bug in @mentions

    When you type an @ sign for a mention, and then need to backspace or otherwise correct a typo in the name you're typing - then the @mention function no longer works. 30 minutes later the "@" sign still won't bring up the list. If you type the name you want exactly - including both first and last name as the awkward implementation of this feature requires - still doesn't work.

    This seems like a minor issue but it happens to a least a couple of people everyday. Not being able to notify someone with a message is such a…

  8. Don't block message text with Save|Like|More Options popup

    When trying to copy text from a message, the icons for Save, Like and More Options, pops up in the foreground, over the actual text I'm trying to copy, making it very difficult to select the text. Can't you change the icon popup location so it doesn't pop up blocking the text?

  10. Inaccurate Missed Call Notification on Mobile

    If I get a call on teams, it rings on both my phone and my computer. If I accept it on my computer, my phone records it as a "missed call" and has a notification dot (on iOS). I need to open teams and view the missed calls list in order to make it go away. The truth is that I ACCEPTED the call, but just not on that device.

  12. Group chats participants count mismatch

    Group chats participants count shows as 14 but we are 15 members.

    The list of members doesn't shows the name of the person who is viewing the list, and hence only counts the people whose name are shown in the list, excluding the person name and also in total count who is viewing that list.

    The better way to show this would be showing each and every member's name in group, with a right count.

    It's great that the SharePoint team have added a nice new calendar page in SharePoint Online with filters and the ability to add team events to your own calendar. However, when adding a tab in MS Teams to the calendar page in SharePoint Online none of the filters work

  15. Sort list of existing Groups

    When i try to assign a new Team to an existing group, i can't find the desired group, because the display of groups is not sorted alphabetically and scrolling through hundreds of randomly displayed groups is not practical. Please display the existing groups alphabetically so that we can find a group easily.

  18. Home/End keys do not work when message starts/ends with an emoji

    Steps to reproduce:
    1) Start a chat message with an emoji.
    2) (optional) add more text after the emoji
    3) Hit the "Home" key on your keyboard in an attempt to place your cursor at the start of the message

    Expected Result:
    Cursor appears at the start of the message, allowing you to type text preceding the emoji

    Actual Result:
    Cursor vanishes and you are unable to type anything. You have to use your mouse to click back in the text box to start typing in the message again.

    Other notes:
    This bug also exists for the opposite case, when…

  20. Remove the "Web" App in Teams as it is a security risk

    The "Web" App in Teams is a security risk since it allows the display of arbitrary web-content in an environment (Electron) that is not fit to handle this.

    From https://electronjs.org/docs/tutorial/security: "be aware that displaying arbitrary content from untrusted sources poses a severe security risk that Electron is not intended to handle"

    Therefore please remove the "Web" App.

    (Yes I know that Team owners can block the app, however I feel that for the reasons given above it should not exist in the first place)
