  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. 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.

  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. 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.

  5. Notifications are not coming to the front

    I'm using Teams Windows desktop client.

If another application is set maximized, the notifications for new messages or incoming calls notification are not appearing on top. Without my speakers i wouldn't recognize an incoming call. I'm working remote via Windows RDP and face this problem every day -_-

    And I am not the only affected user...there are currently houndreds of affected user - look in the comments of the old bug reports:

  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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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?

  13. 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…

  14. 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

  17. Webcam video other participants can see is black and white or has weird graphic artifacts

    Since about 1-2 weeks before Christmas 2020, on any MS Teams call my video is presented to other participants either in black and white or with weird graphical artifacts (colored shadows over the video), while my preview looks completely normal.

    Based on reddit thread and MS Teams forum discussion (see links below) I am not the only one experiencing this; also based on the discussion my first guess would be a relation to nVidia GPU and GPU drivers (I have a GTX 1070 GPU with latest drivers, Logitech Brio web cam).

    Example screen shot of a shared Teams window (including…

  18. MicrosoftTeams PowerShell module v2.0.0 Get-CsOnlineUser Error

    With the MicrosoftTeams PowerShell module v2.0.0, New-CsOnlineSession is now deprecated and replaced by Connect-MicrosoftTeams. After a successful Connect-MicrosoftTeams using certificate authentication, Get-CsOnlineUser returns the following error:

    Exception calling "GetSteppablePipeline" with "1" argument(s): "Exception calling "GetRemoteNewCsOnlineSession" with "1" argument(s): "Tenant Domain is empty"" At C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\MicrosoftTeams\2.0.0\net472\SfBORemotePowershellModule.psm1:9474 char:13

    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [], ParentContainsErrorRecordException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CmdletInvocationException

    Get-CsOnlineUser works properly after Connect-MicrosoftTeams with credential authentication. Thanks for looking into this.

  19. Cannot add Teams meeting to a single occurrence of a series

    Hello,
    We have a new issue - when a Delegate tries to convert a single occurrence in a series to a Teams meeting she gets a message telling her she must convert the entire series to a Teams meeting. (""This is one appointment in a series. To make it an online meeting, open the meeting series and try again.")

    She does not want to change the entire series to a Teams meeting.

    She states that she was able to do this until about a week ago. When opening a recurring meeting, she would get prompted and choose the single occurrence…
