  1. Help Videos Start with Sound On (Turn off Auto-Mute)

    The Help section's Videos all start with the volume muted. Is there a design reason for this? Why the extra step to click to unmute? I would assume that users wanting to watch these videos (by clicking on them) with sound.

    • Microsoft Customer collaboration Site - leveraging the MS ecosystem

      Sorry to ask here but I couldn't find another avenue to ask.

      Does Microsoft have a community where customers collaborate with MS and partners to share best practices or ideas? If not, I would recommend you consider this type of functionality as we have found other customers or partners as an invaluable source for effective use of applications.

      Example: As I try to understand the functionality and limitations of Teams, I have a fairly simple question.

      What is recommended best practice for having a team site where you collaborate on documents and a small number of those documents need to…

        • This is so horrible. It takes way too long to log in to Outlook for me email. This shouldn't be this difficult. Why do I get logged off

          This is an awful site. It takes way too long to log in and I have to sign in way too often. Plus it doesn't remember my password for some reason. I don't have the time to wait for this each day and sometimes during the day.
          My gmail accounts open very easily. Outlook is horrible. I need all my email accounts open all day long. Closing out the tabs and going back to sign in each day on my teams page is dumb. I would never recommend this program. Unfortunately I am stuck using it because the team leader…

            Just make it work. Has issues and the flow still needs to be done better in the Teams app. What about Windows ink in Teams?

                  It would be nice to be able to modify the initial "You've Been Added to a Team" email to include links to overviews or internal support materials, best practices, etc. This will help us guide first-time users in getting started in Teams.

                    • Where do you get help for this thing?

                      I've been using Windows apps since way back. I've been able to figure out how to most Windows programs without a manual or help or tutorials. But Microsoft Teams is the first program I can recall that I need to get some help how to use. And the worst thing is, where is the help?

                      Don't get me wrong, I get the general idea how stuff is supposed to work, but so far nothing is behaving anywhere near to what I'm expecting.

                      I want to use it in lieu of Skype to have conversations with people, but it appears that…

                          • Android sign in issues

                            This has happened three times, and I think it's related to either updating the Teams app, or installing/updating other Microsoft apps.

                            The issue is simple, at the sign in screen it simply says "we're having trouble signing you in". No other details, or errors (frustrating).

                            The only fix is to uninstall -all- Microsoft apps. I'm guessing this must clean up some shared authentication token data or something.

                            If you do some searching on Google, it's a rather systemic issue.

You can also select Filter flash light filter icon to show only certain types of messages such as unread messages, @mentions, replies, and likes. Windows Phone users, we're sorry but you buys don't have that option.

                              Should that say boys/guys/something else? probably shouldn't say buys

IE, what media ports and protocols, etc?

                                  • Notifications dont work. I cannot find unread posts easily. Individual conversations run together and are difficult to separate.

                                    Even this Feedback questionaire is clunky and lacks forethought from overpaid Programmers.

                                      • Don't ask me for feedback then give me tips on getting my voice heard

                                        Your app asks for feedback. The link takes me to a website that expects me to filter existing ideas and vote, or to construct specific bug reports. This page gives advice on how best to get heard... You just asked for my voice but tell me I got to work to be heard?!

                                        The android app errors too much, uses too much battery, and syncs poorly.
                                        The main app doesn't notify by default on team channel messages, and there's no way of catching up with thread convos. Messages are often missed.
                                        Status has been poor for years, marking people away…

                                          I had to move to edge and paste the URL across in order to post my problems.
