  1. Search tool highlighting

    The search tool needs to highlight results founds in the channels. It is difficult to see results found in longer posts.

    The product does highlight the results, and shows the results in the left rail. Let me know if you have any questions on this!

    As we shared earlier, we’ve rebuilt the Settings menu to make it easier for you to manage your preferences. Now, you can change your app theme, language, and notifications settings all in one place.
    To access your settings, click on your profile picture and select Settings. This update is out and available.

    If you are having difficulty accessing the updated settings, please let us know within the comments below.

  6. Desktop client crashing on startup

    The Teams desktop client for one of my users is constantly crashing when it tries to start up, then ends up in a restart and crash loop. We tried uninstalling, then reboot, then remove files and directories from %PROGRAMFILES%,%APPDATA%, and %LOCALAPPDATA%, then reinstall. The new installation also crashes constantly. This just started this afternoon.

    Hi everyone – we’re sorry you saw this crash issue! I’m happy to announce that our team has just deployed a solution. If you are still affected, you may need to uninstall and re-install Teams to fully restore service (https://teams.microsoft.com/downloads). Please let us know if you need help troubleshooting.

    Thanks!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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…

    If you have both Teams desktop client and Skype for Business running, you gets toasts from both when someone sends a SfB IM.

    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.

  19. Poor admin portal Teams name search

    Need to have partial searching in the Manage Teams area of the Admin Portal. We only have 100 teams so far and it's already getting unmanageable as the search only matches from the start of the Team name e.g. Team called "Business Development" doesn't appear in search results for 'Development'.

    Additionally, not being able to sort the columns or export the list is very unhelpful.

    Microsoft Teams からアクセスできるよう機能の実装を要望します。

    Our end users reported that there is no setting found to enable voicemail feature.
    I found that it is possible to set voicemails via below URL, but there is no access from Office 365 GUI.
    https://aka.ms/vmsettings

    It will be great if we could access the voicemail settings directly from Microsoft Teams.
