  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. 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.

  4. Remove comfort noise

    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.

  5. Notifications are not coming to the front

    I'm using Teams Windows desktop client.
    Since a few Weeks ago there is an old problem from spring 2020 in the notifications. 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:

  8. 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

  9. 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. 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…

  11. 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…

  13. Cursor jumps to the end in message input when Alt+Shift pressed

    I'm from Belarus and I use two keyboard languages (russian and english). To switch language I use hotkey Alt+Shift. When I type message and switch language with hotkey then my cursor jumps to the end of message input. It happens after about 2 second, but not right when hotkey pressed

    It's very critical for message editing! I move cursor to edit something and when language switched I type some symbols, but cursor jumps to the end and I type part of word in the end of message (see attached video as example)

    On the video after typing I don't move…

  14. When transferring using consult then transfer in new meeting experience, the 'live' call window is behind the call being transferred

    We have found that when attempting to transfer a call with the new meeting experience switched on, the window for the 'live' call - i.e. the consultation is hidden behind the call you are attempting to transfer, which is not intuitive nor immediately obvious so it appears that the Transfer button is missing.

    Could this please be resolved so that the focus is on the consultative call window and not on the call which is being transferred (which is on hold at this time)?

  15. Teams video call notifications window not coming to the front

    Many of our users are reporting an issue with the incoming call notification window in that it is not coming to the fore when ringing and they are having to minimise all other open applications to get to it. This has only started recently.

    Teams shows me as away when the desktop app is minimized. I am still working but my team thinks I am away. Very annoying!

  17. Raise hands is very delayed for some participants

    In our online class, teams raise hands feature is very delayed for some participants. Raised hands are visible minutes after the button was pressed. This happens only from time to time, for Mac users, MS Surface (Windows) and Windows Notebooks in the Teams Application. Webcam and Audio are not notably delayed.

  19. Cursor jumps to the end of message, when I change it somewhere in the middle

    This. It is very-very annoying! Please fix it!
    Not sure but maybe it is related to keyboard language switching.

  20. 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.
