  1. Teams application crashes (or video dies) when a new update is available

    It seems everyone an updated for Teams is pushed out to the Mac client, the client will either flat out quit without warning, or the ability to use video will die. Restarting the client doesn't help, however installing the update fixes the video issue (until the next update).

  3. 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?

  4. No participant controls in meetings app on Mac.

    This used to work two weeks ago, but last week and this week it wasn't there any more: in some big meetings (church service) the option to pin the speaker full screen and all other options are missing.
    Say we're in the opening 4-pane window and the main speaker comes on I'd like to only see him full screen. I rightclick on his pane and there's no options at all except a grayed out [copy (#V)]. Which doesn't work, of course, it's grayed out. Same if I click on the person's name in that pane. See attached pic. It's not…

  5. Notifications come up white on OS X application

    The notifications come up white, then after about 30 seconds they render. I just turned them off because they distract me and don't show me information. It would be much better if you would just use the MacOS notification system like everyone else.

  6. Double pressings space bar on macOS client to insert a period leaves a space before the period.

    Double pressing space bar on Mac client to insert a period does not delete the first space. For example:

    This is how double pressing a space bar normally works. It follows regular grammar.

    In Teams, double pressing the space bar appears as follows . The space before the period does not get deleted, but the space after the period remains .

  7. macOS: teams video call freezes on notifications of teams (toast)

    When I'm in a video call and a "popup" (toast) notification of teams is shown, for example because of a chat in a different channel or a notification of a new meeting starting, the video in the current call freezes for a while.

    I'm on macOS Catalina (10.15.4)
    You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.4460. It was last updated on 14/03/2020.

  9. Excel Window Sharing Does Not Work On Teams MacOS Client

    When in a Teams meeting, you cannot share an Excel Window if a spreadsheet is open. If you share the Excel Window prior to opening a spreadsheet, Teams will allow the share, but as soon as you open a spreadsheet, the share stops and Teams notifies you that it cannot find the window. Others have reported this problem on the community forums. https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/teams-of-macbook-cannot-share-excel-workbook-on-screen-sharing/m-p/1187293

  11. No audible ringtone when receiving a Teams call

    I don't hear a ringtone on my Mac when I receive a Teams call while using the Mac Teams client. All other audio on my Mac is fine (Teams and otherwise). It appears to be a Teams bug.

  12. Presenter view in Powerpoint shows others blank screen

    It looks like it isn't possible to present to a team call with presenter notes, as they get a blank screen when that view is chosen. It is possible to use a normal presentation or to just share the window and step through the slides that way, but it isn't possible to get visibility of the presenter notes as part of a proper presentation. This was from a Macbook presenting to a Macbook from the desktop Teams application.

  14. Can’t redeem invitations properly

    When someone sends me an invitation, I select “redeem” and it opens the browser instead of the app. Then the browser tells me to launch the app; but the button to launch the app from the browser doesn’t work. When I open the app, the invitation is still unredeemed.

  15. Incorrect behavior with French/Français (Canada) keyboard shortcuts in MacOS

    I have a French "Français (Canada)" keyboard with a Mac. Trying to type a forwardslash / in a text field using the normal keystroke, option-é, brings up the keyboard shortcut menu instead of typing a forwardslash. The default shortcut for this menu is option-/ on a US keyboard. Changing the keyboard language in Teams to French "Français (France)" nominally changes the keyboard shortcut to command-shift-/ but the actual behavior does not change. Typing option-é with the keyboard set to French still opens the keyboard shortcut menu, which shows the shortcut as command-shift-/ despite the actual…

  18. User that shows to be Available is in fact not

    Teams is simply unusable. It is not only confusing the **** out of existing Skype for Business users. IT simply doesn't work!
    I try to chat with a person on Teams who show as available le, and after sending the chat, I get the message the person is NOT available, but he keeps showing free. In Skype for business that same person shows as logged out, but ... when I type a chat message there he receives it and responds and he stays offline.

    In summary, we'll need to look for an alternative chat client, this is not usable at…

  19. Teams Window minimises when sharing desktop in Mac

    When I go to share my Desktop (usually, my MacBook Pro's built-in display), Teams which is sitting on my external display minimises.

    I thought this was just annoyingly by design until a Windows-using colleague said that doesn't happen with Windows, it only does that when you share the Desktop which Teams is sitting on.
