  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. left and right arrow keys stop working

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msteams/forum/all/left-right-arrow-keys-dont-move-the-cursor-in/0005b99d-f034-4d65-89f2-c67bd7c53e67

    Teams chat box appears to randomly stop allowing you to use the left and right arrow keys. Restarting teams appears to fix the issue.

  3. Copying code snippets dangerously broken

    A recent change has severely broken copying from code snippets. Selecting any portion of a code snippet now silently copies the entire snippet to the clipboard. This is extremely dangerous, as it can lead to unintentional execution of commands if pasted into a terminal.

    It looks like this was an implementation of https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/34879543-copy-code-snippet, but this is the worst possible choice. Please revert this change, and make copying the entire snippet an explicit contextual menu item.

  4. Latest Teams update breaks Virtual Cameras - Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.18164

    Mac OS Catalina 10.15.5 - Just prior to the update to 1.3.00.18164, Teams was able to utilize my OBS and Wirecast virtual cameras which I use all the time. Now Teams doesn't see them and yep, the permissions for screen recording, etc are all accounted for and I disabled and re-enabled the settings, as well as restarting the app(s), including Teams, etc. and the machine. Previously, I was able to choose the appropriate virtual camera. Now I only have access to the Mac's built-in webcam. Obviously, this is not ideal.

    The version that did work for sure was 1.3.00.15561.

  5. Switching tenants no longer works on Linux

    Since week 13/14 2021 it is no longer possible to switch tenants in MS Teams for Linux.

    This is a blocking issue and results in users not being able to join tenants as guests.

    You always return to the default tenant.

    Some errors found in the logs while switching are attached to this uservoice bug.

  7. invisible notification window mac

    My teams client was updated to 1.3.00.28778 on 11/13/20. Prior to this update, I did not have the problem I describe below:

    1) Launch Teams
    2) Receive a message from a teammate prompting a notification
    3) Switch to Teams
    4) Read message
    5) Select Window Menu
    6) Observe that a window titled "Message Notification" still exists
    7) "Bring All To Front" does not make a notification visible
    8) No option exists to close this Message Notification window

    Others have complained about this problem - a quick search using Google for "invisible notification window" gets multiple hits.

    The window is not…

  8. Keyboard issues with teams on android

    Message entry box often disappears behind the keyboard and I have to exit keyboard and start over to edit my message. This is new with latest version from a week or so ago. I'm on Galaxy Note 10+ on Android 11. Previous to this problem, an update a few months ago broke the ability to use Speech to text reliably. If I had to edit a message I would have to close the keyboard and tap in the message to begin editing again after using speech to text. It's still work perfectly in every other app. The issue was certainly…

    It seems like Microsoft Teams has a comfort noise: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comfort_noise , at least on the Windows Desktop Client - please give us an option to disable it or remove it completely.

  11. Attaching a Gif displays "Sent a GIF"

    This has started recently in the last two weeks or so. As a guest of a tenant, I can no longer see GIFs previewed in chat. There is a discussion of this on the Tech Community forum here:

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/attaching-a-gif-displays-quot-sent-a-gif-quot/m-p/2688846/highlight/true#M99191

    This issue only seems to affect the web and desktop clients. It is not an issue on the Android or iOS apps.

  13. Whenever I hit (Shift+Alt) to change my keyboard language, the cursor jumps to the end of the sentence

    There's a bug in Windows Teams Client for the desktop. Whenever I hit (Shift+Alt) to change my keyboard language, the cursor jumps to the end of the sentence.

    This makes it hard to edit sentences and fix multi-language mistakes on the fly.

    You can help the problem if you turn off spell check, but that's hardly a long term solution.

  14. emoji keyboard shortcuts have stopped working (again. this time in May 2021)

    In June 2018 I raised https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/34688005-emoji-keyboard-shortcuts-have-stopped-working in regard to emoji keyboard shortcuts not working. I later raised a comment on that issue stating:

    ========================
    I just realised that this is possible by typing

    :thumbsup:

    All emojis here: https://www.emojione.com/emoji/v4 are supported (apparently).

    This makes me happy :) . Please ignore this submission

    ========================

    however today, in May 2021, the keyboard short that I mentioned in that comment has also stopped working and judging by the sudden influx of comments on that issue I'm not the only one.

    So, in summary, at some point in May 2021 the ability to enter an…

  15. Turn off incoming video option missing

    The option to turn off incoming video has now been removed. This is a really important feature for people with learning difficulties as the video can distract.

    Why do MS keep making these changes that have an adverse effects on users with specific needs?

  16. Teams focus issues when sharing content

    In the recent Teams Dogfood build (Version 1.4.00.523 (64-bit)-E. It was last updated on 07/01/2021) if I have a meeting window popped out and snapped to one side of my monitor & other applications in the other half of my screen - Teams steals focus when a user in the meeting shares their screen.

    Example - On a call, all talking sharing video and I've got Outlook open on the right and I'm looking at an email. Someone on the call starts screensharing and the Outlook window vanishes as Teams becomes the focus application.

    It's hyper distracting and has led…

  17. Team desktop client picking low quality video resolution from set offered by web cam.

    Teams client is picking 640x360 resolution rather than optimal resolution. This results in sub-par picture quality.

    This happens with virtual camera devices like XplitVcam, XsplitBroadcaster and OBS as well as physical cameras like Logitech brio.

    I have proven this by removing the 640x360 offered resolution from xsplit XML files (it offers multiple resolutions via dshow and teams picks which it wants to use) - quality improved.

    To be clear this is a bug in how team client selects from the dshow resolutions offered.

    More here https://obsproject.com/forum/threads/obs-virtual-cam-bad-video-quality-in-teams-skype.118800/

    This issue does not affect web client.

    confirmed in client version 1.3.00.13565

  18. teams doesn't close

    When you UNCHECK the setting "On close, keep the application open" it appears the Teams.exe process does not properly exit. The application disappears, but the tray icon is still present.

    The core of the issue is when you click the Teams icon on the taskbar again to open the application it doesn't open. The only way to get the application to open is to right-click on the tray icon and select quit.

    I have confirmed the behavior is present on several different PCs.
