  1. Teams now setting my status to "Away" after 10 minutes?!?

    While working outside of the Teams windows it sets Teams to "Away" after a very short time, even while working on the PC. As most people are not constantly just using Teams this leads others to believe one is not at their desk. There needs to be a way to turn to off and/or manually set the timeout period.

  2. Private channel members cannot access files

    I created a private channel and added a spreadsheet to the files section. However the channel members that I invited cannot access the files. How do we fix this?

  3. Show for members feature is not affecting channel visibility

    As an Owner of a Team, there is no longer a way to show or hide a channel for all members after a channel is created. Each member will have to go to each channel, click the ellipsis and select "Show" to see the channel.

    Going through team ellipsis > Manage Team > Channels tab > selecting "Show for members" on a channel no longer has any effect for existing or new members.

    Creating a channel through the graph api at /v1.0/teams/channels and using the isFavoriteByDefault property in the body is no longer working either.

  6. Available/Away status not functioning correctly. Even though I'm active on PC (available) it toggle my status to away. This is wrong!

    When User is active on the PC/device they are available (unless in a meeting or manually set to busy). Away status should only change when user is no longer available, i.e. not active on the PC (for configurable time - perhaps 30 minutes) - or based on Monitor/screen/display timeout or system sleep.

  7. Screen share won't find newly open programs

    When doing screen share in a Teams meeting, it will not find newly opened programs after the meeting starts. You need to stop the meeting open all programs and then you can click screen share to see the open programs to share. It will not work if you start the meeting FIRST and then open the programs you need to share.

    Also, you are having to scroll down to see all available options if more than 2 programs are open and trying to screen share. Many teachers are getting confused and has been many of our Customer Support calls.

  8. Using Share screen to share an Excel Worksheet is problematic on the receiving end.

    Sharing an Excel spreadsheet under the Window heading is problematic. On the receiving end it sometimes displays as blank(white) or just a static image where participants cant see any activity like scrolling, highlighting a cell, etc. It works fine when sharing through the Desktop heading, but sharing the application (Window) itself presents the issues above.

    Windows10 Enterprise
    Ms Teams 1.3.00.15561(64bit)
    IE and Goggle Chrome
    HP Elitebook

    I've already cleared those Teams cache folders under %appdata%. Also performed a re-install of Ms Teams. The Excel files are small, still KB's in size. I once tried sharing an IE browser and it…

  9. Cannot edit/amend 'Meeting Options' in Teams to allow participants to join without waiting in lobby is giving error "Something went wrong"

    Hello,

    I am having trouble with Microsoft Teams (free version).

    I am scheduling a meeting using 'Teams App' on my iPhone or Teams App on my windows laptop.

    When I click 'Meeting Options' to allow participants to join without waiting in lobby; I get this error "Something went wrong, reload the page, if it keeps happening, try again later.'

    I am the host of meeting, and I do not want people people to wait in lobby for me to admit them.

    I am not sure why this problem suddenly; because it was working fine for past 3~4 months.

    I am…

  10. Sharepoint News-connector not working

    The Sharepoint news connector can no longer be configured for any channel, and already configured connections are no longer working. I've published a couple of news for more than 48 hours ago, still no newspush in the channel. Please fix this, it's urgent in these times when fast news are important!

  13. private channels must be able to be created by owners and the owner must be able to choose who is in that private channel.

    As a teacher there is sometimes a group work and it would be interesting to create private groups where the other members cannot watch / copy from the private channel.

  15. Renaming a channel isn't applied to all areas that the channel name is used.

    Original Name: "Test Renaming"
    New Name: "Test Renaming1"

    Areas that the old channel name continues to appear.
    - Under the Files tab
    - The backend folder of the channel
    - The url used for "Open in SharePoint"

  16. The other team member's keyboard layout is wrongly interpreted during screen sharing with giving control

    I have Office365 Business Premium and I am using Microsoft Teams for educational work. During Teams meetings, I share my screen & give control to my pupils, so they can manipulate the application and type answers to questions (e.g. in Powerpoint).
    I live in Belgium and my keyboard layout is Dutch (Belgium), the letters on the keyboard start as AZERTY.
    During the "give control" screen sharing session, when the team member types (remotely from his PC), the keyboard layout is always incorrectly interpreted as English, thus an A becomes a Q, the Z becomes W, etc (QWERTY instead of AZERTY).…

  19. Channel Notifications still notifying on muted channels

    I have a large(ish) Team of 172 members and have at least a dozen instances of people telling me that they are getting notifications of new posts even though they have the channel notifications turned off or even have the channel itself hidden. I have verified that they have their notifications set to Off for "All new posts" and/or that they do indeed have the channel(s) hidden. They still get banner and Activity Feed notifications whenever there is a new post, even without any mentions at all.

    I have provided a couple of screenshots to demonstrate. One is of the…

  20. New "Tasks" Planner+To Do Error accessing Plans from Teams Planner

    Error message: "The Plan is no longer available. It looks like someone removed the list from channel, so we'll remove it here too."

    It seems like the Tasks app doesn't like the Planner channel or is expecting a "list" instead of a "plan".

    The user is able to access the plan through the Team; If the same is attempted via the Planner tab, the app throws an error and removes the channel from the Planner tab.

    Where is the option to revert "Tasks" (Planner+To Do) to "Planner"? Alternatively, how can we fix this issue?

    I have attempted clearing Teams cache,…
