  2. I'm shown as available even when I'm disconnected.

    I've been sent messages while I was disconnected from Teams, saying that I was shown as available, even when my computer wasn't even on. One or two weeks ago I downloaded the Teams App for Android, but three days later I uninstalled it.

  5. Duration

    If I set the Duration of my Presence on a specific state for a specific period of time, it should stay for the period I set, but at the moment the function doesn’t work.
    After 5 minutes my personal status changes everytime to “Away”. This is never happened in Skype for Business..

  8. status goes to away when i stop typing to read, and then after it says i'm away, i will start typing and doing work, and still shows me in

    My current status goes to away when i stop typing to read, and then after it says i'm away, i will start typing and doing work, and it still shows me as away and won't update until i open up the teams chat window and click into chatting someone, not useful, as i would like to show to my colleagues that I am available, with skype we had options to change status settings and timers, with teams we don't.

  10. Status updates itself and this feature should be decided by the user, not teams

    The user should be able to decide either
    He wishes to appear as free, out of office, or just away . The status should not be decided ..most of the times wrongly.. by teams app and "sync" .

    It is not helpful to have it all decided for you and to be offline or away while writing emails .. just because meanwhile, you forgot to cancel the "out of office meeting ".

    There are not many features user friendly..where you can choose your style.
    I am actually comparing it to the Samsung style of designing a phone -many features, but…

  12. Phone number creation in Teams Admin not allowing selection of location

    When attempting to create new phone numbers of any type a location field is required. A new location can be created here and is displayed in Emergency locations. This location does not display on drop down nor search so the wizard can not complete with out the location field filled in. Confirmed by MS support ?

  13. Cannot remove or change profile picture in Teams (free version)

    We are unable to remove or change profile pictures in MS Teams (free account), when clicking Remove Picture the picture disappears and goes back to the default initials, but when Saving a red error message appears: "There was a problem with saving the photo. Please try again." And the profile picture stays the same.

    This bug has been the same for at least the last 5 days, and others in my company also have the same problem. This also cannot be changed in the web version or the mobile app.

  16. presence taken over by teams doesnt fall back after switching back user

    When a user is signed in to Guest access and then switches back, the Setting "Register Teams as the chat app for office", remains checked.
    Meaning the inband provisioning doesnt happen when we switch back to original Domain.

    This is a known issue as when I switch over to Guest account, it detects the settings and enables it. But when I switch back, it doesnt want to take out the settings and keeps it intact causing the Presence issue in my Outlook.

  17. What is going on with new arrangement of views?

    What is going on with new arrangement of views? Now they flit all over the screen when going from chat and out again. Zoom the excessive sidebar of people smaller, and then the chat is tiny too. Is teams for adults of childeren? Why does it have to change? Its not even aligned to other microsoft products, why does the window open up in a defined size each time? Why does it not remember my last setting, last time I had a chat? Please pick a layout, and stick with it. (not this one) Thanks!

  19. Duration stops working on the Windows client

    The duration stops working and just switches to away, even when set. Others have found that you can delete the contents of the Teams folder to resolve the issue. This worked for me, however, after a while, it stops working again.
