  1. Screen sharing macOS: Only working while "System Preferences.app" is running

    Current behaviour:
    When clicking on the "Share content" icon a message ("We need permission to share your screen. Go to Security & Privacy > Screen Recording to give permission and start sharing.") appears and none of my screens/windows are available to start sharing. Teams already has the permission for "Screen Recording" in the "Security & Privacy" preferences dialog. However, as soon as I open "System Preferences.app" (any submenu) and try again while it is still open everything works as expected. I can consistently reproduce this behaviour.

    Expected behaviour:
    Screen sharing works independently of the "System Prefenrences.app" once the "Screen Recording"…

  2. Teams video spotlight not available on macbook pro?

    We can't seem to activate the new spotlight feature on MS Teams using the Mac client. We use macbook pro OS Mojave and have followed the instructions but spotlight feature does not seem to be available. This is very important for our webinars where we use branded virtual backgrounds. Our last MS Teams upgrade was on 28 October. Has this not been rolled out for Mac users? In a meeting we hosted on 3 November our invited speakers (on Windows) were able to spotlight themselves. Assistance would be appreciated as this is a very important feature for us. We have…

  3. Remote Control on Macs Desktop Buggy

    Using the desktop client, properly configured in privacy settings appears to be buggy. Many of my users are complaining that one day remote control is working, then next its not, then it might the following day - with no changes to config or settings. All Mac desktop on 10.15.7.

  4. Version notification bar opening behavior on macOS client

    When the version info bar is brought up via Microsoft Teams > About Microsoft Teams or via in-app top-right avatar menu > About > Version, if the user clicks this multiple times, multiple copies of the bar open on top of each other, so when the user clicks the "X" button, it does not disappear until they click it the number of times they opened it.

    This is made slightly worse by the fact that when using the menu bar to open this, the notification does not appear until the user clicks within the main content area of teams, so…

  5. Host cannot control properly while control is shared

    When sharing control in a Teams call on macOS, as the host, I am not able to control properly. Most clicks were not recognized and mouse hover state was cutting in and out. The other user was not touching/moving their mouse. Host is macOS Catalina 10.15.7 running Teams 1.3.00.28778, client is on macOS Mojave 10.14.6 on Teams 1.3.00.23764.

  9. Teams not showing in the Screen Recording section of privacy settings

    Teams are not showing up in the Screen Recording section of Privacy settings. I have the latest version of Catalina (10.15.7) and the latest version of Teams (1.3.00.26266). Teams does show up in the camera and microphone-section for privacy settings, but not in the screen recordings. I have tried every tip in Teams forum - including restarting, reinstalling, using the go to privacy settings-button in a meeting. But it just does not work. This is an issue with another colleague of mine with the same Mac operating system and Microsoft Teams version as well. I have to use Teams in…

  10. Teams comes to foreground when call controls appear on Mac

    When sharing my screen in a Teams call on macOS, if I move my mouse near the top of the screen and the call controls appear, after a second, the Teams call window comes to the foreground, interrupting whatever I was doing.

  12. No Mac download section on the download page

    The articles describes to download the installation file under the Mac section, but there is no Mac section. There are only two sections, Windows and Mobile.

  13. macOS Teams Client: No text rendered in Apps

    When using the native Microsoft Teams Client Version 1.3.00.18164 on macOS (Version 11.0 Beta (20A5395g)), in any HTML-Based rendering parts, no text is displayed.

    Reproduction e.g.:
    * Add Jira Cloud App
    * Add a new tab / Jira Cloud
    * On the displayed configuration/login screen no text is visible

    See attached screenshot

    The problem does not occur when using a browser (e.g. Google Chrome 86.0.4240.111) instead of the native Teams Client.

  15. Notifications don't display Text

    I am currently running the Big Sur Beta and when I receive notifications from teams I can see the blue box that appears in the corner and then I can see the profile and username but the rest of the box is devoid of any information, eg the start to whatever message or call I am apart of.

  16. Onboarding experience on Mac could scarcely be worse

    Installation was OK, but launching the app was a disaster. It came up and just... sat there. No obvious options, nothing to do. When I finally tried to create a meeting, I got a whirling blue arrow that continued forever (I actually waited 20 minutes). I repeated this on another computer, so not a fluke. This is way too reminiscent of the days when Microsoft treated the Mac as a second-class citizen (and I worked for Microsoft then). Someone wanted to meet with me on Teams and I had to reject that and go to Zoom, which I also detest.

  18. I recently updated to Mac OS Beta Big Sur. Now, in Teams, my tab content won't display properly.

    Since updating to Beta Big Sur, my Teams tabs won't display. No matter what the content (Excel, Word, Form, etc.). They won't display all the data. I have confirmed that Teams on the Web does work, Just Teams on Mac.

  19. It is not possible to share the internal audio of my computer.

    TEAMS currently does not allow to share the internal audio of a MAC computer. To teach music at a meeting, it is an essential feature. A greeting and thank you very much.

  20. When clicking the sort button on the Grades screen, the app produces a copy of the items.

    When clicking to reorder items in the list based on your preferred category, the app simply duplicated the listed items, instead of sorting them. This happens in the Grades section of courses. Sometimes this bug doesnt reproduce, but going to another course section (say, assignments), then back to grades, causes this. I have a suspition that there is another action im taking inbetween (such as clicking) which could be assisting the bug to appear. It could also be that it happens if you click on grades while the other section hasnt loaded fully, or if you try to click the…
