  2. Sharing App Windows not possible.

    While trying to share content, sharing the whole screen works, uploading file from system and onedrive works, but sharing window is not mostly fine. The Teams app simply doesn't show the app windows open on the system. The only window that it shows is Teams itself.

    This is really important to share a powerpoint presentation in presenter's view, which can make a huge difference to the presenting experience. But that needs sharing the powerpoint window, uploading the ppt or the entire screen doesn't give us presenter's view. But even with powerpoint open, share tray doesn't show powerpoint as a window.

  3. Teams presence not changing when call is finished

    When finished call via Teams phone status in Teams doesn't change back to Available automatically. Needs to be changed manually.

  4. New Contact Folder - Blank

    I can not create a new blank contact folder. Once it creates new contact folder, it replicates all existing contacts into a new folder.

  5. After computer wakes from sleep, Teams is consistenly unable to connect and requires program restart.

    When my laptop starts from sleep, I am not able to see the most recent messages and I get a banner at the top that says "issues connecting, reconnecting". The banner never goes away. I end up having to force close and restart Teams every morning.

  7. New Meeting window is extremely laggy and unreliable

    The latest change, with meetings now being in their own window, seems like a good idea but was poorly executed.

    Even when on a call with a single person, video lags in a way that wasn't happening before this update. As soon as you get a small team together, you're looking at about 3-5 frames per second of video per person on a good day.

    Further, this impacts interacting with Teams UI. For instance, when clicking on the button to Mute/Unmute, it takes approximately 5 seconds for the button to update its state. This is unacceptable.

    But it gets worse:…

  8. 7 digit verification code

    I was asked at login to enter a verification code. This was sent to my email as a 7 digit code. When I entered it into the field, only 6 digits could be entered. I tried to submit the 6 digit code and got an error that it required a 7 digit code. But I can't enter a 7 digit code if the field stops accepting input after 6 digits...

  10. When screen sharing on Mac, Teams makes the menu bar completely unusable

    Screen share on Mac renders the menu bar unusable. This is a huge UX bug and has existed for years. How Microsoft finds this allowable is beyond me.

    When presenting a full screen app, the menu bar can never be used as the Teams interface seems to want to override the menu bar.

    When on a desktop trying to access the menu for a non-full screen app, Teams always takes ownership and provides its menu.

    This is unacceptable when trying to use Teams. The fact that this made it through review shows your team needs to invest HEAVILY in fixing…

  13. Font difference

    You will notice the font "chat" difference between main chat vs pop-out or separate chat window. I like the font appearance on pop-out / separate since it's better readability.

  14. Separate Chat Issues

    Say we have 5 separate standalone chat windows opened, then you quit/launch the app, it's not there anymore and it does not remember the settings.

    Please make it remember the previous session.

  15. Before logon or joining a Meeting the Version Info Menu Item does not work

    Version check ist not possible before logon or joining as guest.
    It should be possible to show the version and trigger an update check.
    At the moment I download and install the version offered before joining my weekly meeting and hope that this is always the latest.

    This might also be a problem for the windows version.

  16. Add MS Teams to Microsoft Update on Mac if MS Update is installed

    If Office or S4B is installed Microsoft Update is also installed.
    It would be nice if MS Update would recognize and update Teams as well.

    Optimal would be a checkbox during installation of Teams if MS Update is not installed to install it, also for S4B as some might not like if MS Update is installed without prior notice. (S4B = Skype for Business).

  18. No link to ongoing call

    I used to have a link in the top of the "Chat" column that would enable me to return to an ongoing call. Now, when I am in a call, I cannot view the call without figuring out what team or chat the call is in, and then clicking to call the group.

  19. Teams new user experience video causes app to become unresponsive

    When using the new teams experience with version 1.3.00.18164. It was last updated on 7/28/20. The app becomes unresponsive when incoming video or outgoing video is enabled. I am even unable to stop the video. This makes using the application very challenging.

  20. Window Management

    The windows of teams do not behave as other MacOS windows which prevents window management tools e.g. Magnet [1] to move the windows of teams correctly (or at all).
