  1. Latest Teams update breaks Virtual Cameras - Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.18164

    Mac OS Catalina 10.15.5 - Just prior to the update to 1.3.00.18164, Teams was able to utilize my OBS and Wirecast virtual cameras which I use all the time. Now Teams doesn't see them and yep, the permissions for screen recording, etc are all accounted for and I disabled and re-enabled the settings, as well as restarting the app(s), including Teams, etc. and the machine. Previously, I was able to choose the appropriate virtual camera. Now I only have access to the Mac's built-in webcam. Obviously, this is not ideal.

    The version that did work for sure was 1.3.00.15561.

    The fix for notifications not appearing/playing when Teams is minimized is rolling out to the public ring. We expect it to be rolled out 100% by the weekend – I’ll update this item at that point.

    Thanks!

  3. Teams now setting my status to "Away" after 10 minutes?!?

    While working outside of the Teams windows it sets Teams to "Away" after a very short time, even while working on the PC. As most people are not constantly just using Teams this leads others to believe one is not at their desk. There needs to be a way to turn to off and/or manually set the timeout period.

  4. Allow external users to access group chat

    Why isn't it possible to add external users to group chat? It's a big step backwards comparing to Skype for Business and it makes life more difficult for companies working with various clients on a daily basis.

  5. Remove comfort noise

    It seems like Microsoft Teams has a comfort noise: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comfort_noise , at least on the Windows Desktop Client - please give us an option to disable it or remove it completely.

  6. Can't join a meeting: stuck on "Connecting..." screen

    Sometimes I can't connect to a meeting. It's just stuck on "Connecting..." screen and never lets me in. I have to restart Teams app several times before I finally can join. I noticed that when Teams doesn't say that there're several people already in (and I know for fact several people have already joined), then I'll definitely have hard time connecting. I'm using the Teams application on Windows. I experienced this issue with meetings created in Outlook by someone else (I wasn't the meeting organizer).

  8. Filtering by Team does not show all the channels

    Recent updates to the MicrosoftTeams client make finding a channel in a Team difficult if you know the name of the Team but not the channel.

    In the latest Teams client update, you changed the way users search/filter on Teams and channels. It makes it EXTREMELY difficult to find or browse a channel in a Team.

    The process now for finding a channel in Teams is as follows:
    1) Filter on Team (it only Shows the General Channel)
    2) Click on the ellipses "..."
    3) Click on "Manage Team"
    4) Click on "Channels"
    5) Click on the Channel...

    That's FIVE…

  9. In large meetings (250 people) people hit "mute all" and consistently silence the speaker, disrupting the meeting.

    In large meetings (250 people) people hit "mute all" and consistently silence the speaker, disrupting the meeting.

    Please figure out a solution to prevent such disruptions in large meetings.

  11. Team desktop client picking low quality video resolution from set offered by web cam.

    Teams client is picking 640x360 resolution rather than optimal resolution. This results in sub-par picture quality.

    This happens with virtual camera devices like XplitVcam, XsplitBroadcaster and OBS as well as physical cameras like Logitech brio.

    I have proven this by removing the 640x360 offered resolution from xsplit XML files (it offers multiple resolutions via dshow and teams picks which it wants to use) - quality improved.

    To be clear this is a bug in how team client selects from the dshow resolutions offered.

    More here https://obsproject.com/forum/threads/obs-virtual-cam-bad-video-quality-in-teams-skype.118800/

    This issue does not affect web client.

    confirmed in client version 1.3.00.13565

    Teams shows me as away when the desktop app is minimized. I am still working but my team thinks I am away. Very annoying!

  14. Cannot add Teams meeting to a single occurrence of a series

    Hello,
    We have a new issue - when a Delegate tries to convert a single occurrence in a series to a Teams meeting she gets a message telling her she must convert the entire series to a Teams meeting. (""This is one appointment in a series. To make it an online meeting, open the meeting series and try again.")

    She does not want to change the entire series to a Teams meeting.

    She states that she was able to do this until about a week ago. When opening a recurring meeting, she would get prompted and choose the single occurrence…

  16. Memory utilization for MS Teams

    As all of us know, MS Teams uses an enormous amount of memory.

    Time for Microsoft to solve the problem of very high memory utilization by MS Teams.

    Microsoft: Please work on this issue with high priority. We cannot accept 2,3 and sometimes 4 GB RAM consumption by MS Teams.

  18. Enable gif background effects

    When you select a gif as a background effect, it just appears as a still picture and is not animated. Please add support for gifs so that if you set a gif as your background effect, it is animated. Thank you!

  19. Pinned app wont stay pinned

    I try to pin an app, but not long afterwards I see this:
    "Your admin has updated your settings. Some of your pinned apps have moved."
    Our IT wouldn't have changed these settings, so why is this the default?
