  1. 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.

  3. Flashing Red Border

    When screen sharing with Teams and using an external display, the red border around the shared window is flashing instead of being solid. A solid red border is okay, but the flashing red is very distracting. This is specifically when the external display is a ClickShare.

  6. Teams Outlook Plugin creates meetings with wrong tenant information after tenant switch

    I'm using Teams with different customer's tenants. Unfortunately, I'm not able to switch between the tenants directly (described possibility to click on the arrow next to my user’s image is not displayed), so I need to logout and sign into the different tenants manually.
    If I do so, team's outlook plugin doesn't recognize the tenant change for a while and meantime creates meetings in outlook with the tenant ID of the tenant I've been logged in before or – worse – is mixing up the invitations between different calendars (in calendar A the meeting with tenant B credentials will be…

  8. Headset mute button behaviour is inconsistent

    USB headset mute controls are inconsistent depending on whether the headset is plugged in or not when Teams is started.

    It appears that when the headset is plugged in before Teams is started the Mute button does not control the Teams mute button. The Teams mute button does however control the headset OK (confirmed by the LED) If its plugged in after Teams is started, all works OK in both directions.

    No limitations listed here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/control-calls-using-a-headset-in-teams-65d6e104-444d-4013-b8c2-f11317dd69a8?ui=en-us&rs=en-us&ad=us

  9. Teams.exe - Installation has failed Error Pop Up

    This error message appeared after a user has logged back into the computer. It looks like Teams is trying to update itself but has failed to.

    Temporary workarounds we have done is to remove Teams and download the latest update through the Teams website. But when Teams pushes another update, the same error message will appear.

    Another workaround we did is go to C:\ProgramData\User\Microsoft\Teams and set the security permission of that folder so the user has full control.And then do a restart on the machine.

    I wanted to ask if anyone has encountered this error and if there's hopefully a…

  10. Teams keeps ringing after I pick up a call on PC

    My MS teams client on PC sometimes keeps ringing even after I have already picked up the call. I can talk on the call, but it seems as there is another call from the same user ringing or simply teams didn't acknowledge I picked up the call and keeps ringing.

    I noticed this happens more often when I have my android tablet logged in as well to teams. I have at the moment a tablet, desk phone (yealink T56A) and android phone logged in as well as my PC desktop client.

  13. Linux Client only polls for audio devices on start up

    When using the Teams Linux Client, the client only polls for audio devices on start up. If I connect my headset via bluetooth, I have to
    restart the app. As an alternative, the client could just used the default device exposed my pulse audio.

    Client version: 1.3.00.5153 64bit
    OS: Fedora Linux 31

    Steps to reproduce:
    1) Start Teams
    2) Connect Bluetooth headset
    3) Go to Settings -> Devices

    Expected Behaviour:
    User would see Device listed under speaker and/or microphone

    Actual Behaviour:
    Device is not seen

    Possible fixes:
    1) Poll Pulse audio for new devices when going to devices
    2) Use…

  14. You should be able to open teams with run command

    Almost all Office apps can be called using the run command in Windows ( windows key + R). Eg. you can use winword to open word; excel for excel, powerpnt for powerpnt.

    However, I cannot figure out how to call teams in an efficient manner there. Since the executable is called Teams.exe, I supposed it should be just typing teams there to launch the program.

  15. Consuming a lot of Windows memory

    Teams are consuming too much computer memory unnecessarily.

    Skype for Business consumes less memory than teams.

    Resolves this annoying problem as 4GB computers suffer when using the Teams application.

  16. Autostart

    When using the Microsoft Teams machie-wide installer, the Autostart option for Teams can either be enabled or disabled for all users of the machine.

    There is no way for the user to change the autostart behaviour within the Teams client.

    Especially in multi-user environments like Citrix VirtualApps + Windows Server 2019 this is problematic because the users cannot set the autostart option to their individual liking.

    In per-user installation mode of Microsoft Teams the user can change the autostart option. The machine-wide installation should also offer this option.

  17. Cannot keep Contacts Groups collapsed

    In the Chat window, under the Contacts tab, there should be a way to keep all the contact groups collapsed. After collapsing all, as soon as I click on a different tab or different area, they all expand again.

  20. The Teams Meeting add-in causes a crash in Outlook 2016 when switching folders.

    The Teams Meeting add-in for Outlook causes a crash in Outlook 2016 when switching folders. When I remove the add-in Outlook works fine.

    This only happens on my 64-bit machine, not on my 32-bit machine, where I can use the Teams Meeting add-in without any problem.
