  1. Teams missing option to open word docs in Desktop Word App

    Many of my end users are reporting that as of today 04/01/2020 that when viewing a MS Word file in teams the option to open in MS Word is now missing. The only options available now are "Open in Browser" or "Download". However, when viewing a Excel document the option to open in Excel is still available. Users are stating this option was available up until today. Is this caused by an update in MS Teams? I did read today that this was removed for the education license is only effected by this change. My company is not on an…

  2. Unable to upload files on Chat via "drag and drop" as well as "attachment" tab.

    I am unable to upload a file to send using both drag & drop or the attachment tab. Whenever i do either one, the file will appear to be loading only to dissapear in a bit. An error message then appear saying that the file is unable to load due to heavy loading.
    The file is less than 1GB in both pdf and ppt format. However my colleague have no issue sending the same file to me.

  3. Unable to link Google Drive to Teams Desktop App

    When I attempt to link my Gooogle Drive account to Teams, I'm able to initiate the process of adding cloud storage. But after allowing access to my Drive account, the application stays in processing and does not finish set-up. The progress circle remains in the browser and on Teams (see attached screenshots). I have also attempted to utilize different browsers but the error remains the same. However, I am able to view my Google Drive files when I use the web app (see attached). The desktop app is where I am facing this issue.

  4. "Keep both" files only works once

    When using the 'move' function to move a file into a folder where the file has the same name as another file in the folder, Teams prompts and asks if you'd like to replace the file at the destination, or keep both files. Choosing 'keep both' appends a "(1)" to the end of the new file. Great. Cool.

    The bug I found is when I try to repeat this process with another file of the same name as the first two; file.txt and file(1).txt. After getting the duplicate file name prompt, I click "Keep both" and nothing happens. The prompt…

  7. Sending multiple pictures requires selecting one at a time

    It makes no sense the current framework for selecting multiple pictures from the mobile app. After clicking the gallery icon I can't long press to select multiple pictures like every other app allows. Instead I have to select a picture, then wait for it to open full screen, then select the + icon have the gallery screen open, select the next picture because again I can't multi select and keep repeating. The usability of the office online products has been extremely disappointing and the fact that mobile products are so poorly designed really makes me strongly consider switching the business…

  12. Excel File Preview doesn't show attached objects

    We are migrating to using TEAMS instead of a shared file server. Recently I started using Excel to load all the pictures, information, and PDF's we need on specific customer orders. Everything looks okay in the file view except for the inserted OBJECT PDF.

    The work around we have found is that you have to download the entire file to your local PC/Phone and it then shows the attached PDF.

    Is there something we are missing?

  14. unable to give access to files

    Not all of my colleagues inside a group chat are able to access uploaded files. They have to request access, which sends me an email and I try to "approve" however the request fails.

  17. Unable to open Word files in Word

    I can open PPT and Excel files in Powerpoint and Excel, respectively, shared with me in a chat group, but I cannot open Word files in Word. I recieve the pop-up telling me "Opening Word" but the file never opens. (This also is happening to me in Sharepoint). I can only open the files in Word Online, which does not provide all the functionality I need.

  19. After deleting upload to an assignment, uploading a file with the same name still adds number to the end as if it is a duplicate

    If I upload a file to an assignment, for example called "document", and then I remove this file from the assignment, it should reset, but instead if i reupload a with the same name "document" it is uploaded as "document 1" instead. If I remove this file, then upload "document" again, it is uploaded as "document 2" and so on.
