  1. BUG - Permanently Delete Group in Shifts

    I've had a real hard time trying to replicate this bug, so I'm just going to outline the actions I performed to produce.
    Basically if I 'add time off' and 'export schedule' there is a duplication of data from an old group I deleted.

    - Group 1 in schedules populated with a team roster
    - Group 2 has the same users and schedule, but different timezone
    - Realised that the second group would achieve what I wanted to do easily
    - Deleted Group 2
    - Finished populating Group 1 with data
    - Export schedule

    Please see attached image for clarification.

  2. Allow us to use multi-byte characters to name a new team created from Microsoft Teams admin center

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams 管理センターからチームを作成する際のエラーについて

    Allow us to use multi-byte characters to name a new team created from Microsoft Teams admin center
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Microsoft Teams 管理センターからチーム名に日本語をはじめとするマルチバイト文字が含まれていると、"このチームを作成できませんでした" のエラーが表示される。
    Microsoft Teams 管理センターからチーム名に日本語をはじめとするマルチバイト文字が含まれている場合でも、チーム作成が完了するよう機能改善を希望します。

    The error " We couldn’t create this team " is displayed when creating a team via Microsoft Teams admin center if the team name contains multi-byte character such as Japanese.
    I hope this behavior will be corrected so that I can create a new team with Japanese name.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Microsoft cut the excuses. Offer a free tier for small teams.

    Be decent and offer a truly free, permanent tier for small teams, i.e. up to 10 people like any modern company does.

    Spare us the "BizSpark" nonsense. Informal teams are rejected there.

  5. Speakerphone turning off on Android bug

    I love MS Teams and what you guys are doing. I had our entire company switch to MS Teams.

    However I just realized something very, very frustrating! I have an Android phone. For months when I was talking to someone over the phone while using speakerphone,(just a regular call, not a Teams call) the speakerphone functionality would switch back to the normal non-speakerphone mode and the person would become really quiet. I had no clue what was causing this so eventually I just started deleting all my apps one by one trying to find which one was causing this. Today…

    I have confirmed the speaker phone bug was fixed and the update released to the public about two (or less) weeks ago.

    You should no longer have this issue.

  6. Remove download Desktop ad for Teams on Chromebook

    We are using teams in and educational setting. The problem for the students is that the ad to download the desktop application takes up so much space that on the main page when launching on a small scree device. The students can exit the ad but upon returning to teams the ad is back up front and center. This constant ad becomes a time management issue for students or students just leave it there and use the very tiny space left to work in teams.

  8. Name group chat

    We have a lot of group chats going on at any point in time and I am not able to find the one I need quickly because all I see is the names of the users.

    Now, you can give a group chat a custom name! This is a great way to keep track of the context of a conversation. When you’re working in the desktop or web app, you’ll see a pencil icon next to the list of participants in your group chat. Click on it, and you’ll be able to add a custom name like “Lunch squad”, “Design review”, or “Thursday night poker”. It’s entirely up to you, so have fun with it—but remember, group chat names will be visible to everyone else in the chat. Whatever you decide, you can always edit your group name later ​(just click on the pencil).

    The best part about naming a group chat is it makes your chat easier to find, too. Once you name a chat, it’s searchable by that name, so you can locate it just by typing the name into your search bar or…

    Fixed: Duplicate notifications for Skype for Business messages- If you’ve got both the Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams desktop apps open and you receive an incoming message from a Skype for Business user, you’ll get a single notification in Skype for Business. (You used to see a notification about the incoming message in both apps.) Less is more, we say.

    If you have any questions, just ping me via email or on Twitter at @skprufo.

  11. Translation error spanish

    The soil is using the term Gratis instead of disponible or libre when indicating whether a person is available for a meeting. Gratis means free of charge, not available.

  12. Translation error "Drive Mode" to German

    Current translation is "Laufwerk Modus". This is wrong and is related to a hard drive / disk.
    Should be in German "Fahrmodus".
    Thanks

    Thanks for your feedback! Can you please provide more information? We currently support creating teams from a private O365 group in the “Create team” dialog as long as you’re an admin, so if this isn’t working for you, would love to get more details so we can troubleshoot. Thanks!

  15. Serbian translation

    "General" conversation in MS Teams web version is translated to Serbian as "General Settings": "Opšte postavke", while it should be just "Opšte".

  19. Small missing detail from Norwegian translation

    In the teams application it says "go to store" when you press the dots on the left hand menu, as well as the main title in the store is "Store".

    It probably should be translated and implemented?

    ("Butikk", "gå til butikk") or something like it.

  20. translation German of quote in chat

    The german translation of the tooltip of the quote button in chat is wrong. It It says Angebot which means offer but should be "Zitat" for actually quoting a text.
