  1. You should be able to open teams with run command

    Almost all Office apps can be called using the run command in Windows ( windows key + R). Eg. you can use winword to open word; excel for excel, powerpnt for powerpnt.

    However, I cannot figure out how to call teams in an efficient manner there. Since the executable is called Teams.exe, I supposed it should be just typing teams there to launch the program.

  3. Poor Clipboard Capabilities - Cannot select all, copying to clipboard limited to very small amount of text

    Using Teams Client - Cannot use CTRL+A to select entire chat message, very difficult to select text in general. Am able to select limited amounts of text by click and drag to select, but even then can only get about 1 screen worth, and if the window happens to scroll while trying to select, lose some of the selection and have to start all over...

    This type of thing was the basic functionality of Windows in the past. Notepad supports copy/paste and it is about as simple as you can get. Please fix the basics.

  4. Authentication Issues when using Conditional Access

    When using the Microsoft Teams thick client on Windows there is a client timing issue when using Conditional Access in certain use cases. For example, if the Teams client launches before the operating system has established connectivity to the network, connected to VPN, etc. it will get blocked from connecting based on one's Conditional Access criteria. Rather than retrying periodically in the background it just fails. This results in a really bad user experience and often people do not understand they need to relaunch the client or log back in for it to try again. The expected behavior would be…

  6. Microsoft Teams Kills all Network Connectivity During Calls

    Despite having a good WiFi or Ethernet connection, regardless of which network I'm on, if I join a Microsoft Teams call, all network connectivity stops working and teams simultaneously reports poor call quality and no network connectivity. All this while on an active call which I can see and hear. Here's a full description of symptoms.

    Every time I connect to a Teams meeting:


    • Incoming call quality is ok. I can hear and see others.

    • Outgoing call quality is very poor. Others say my voice is breaking up.

    • If I unmute and speak for more than a few seconds, I…

  9. Call history marks incoming calls as outgoing

    Teams Windows desktop client marks calls incoming via the call queue as outgoing

    when call history is reviewed on a mobile device the history shows both an incoming and outgoing call for the call.
    One incoming from bot other is outgoing.

  10. Allow external users to access group chat

    Why isn't it possible to add external users to group chat? It's a big step backwards comparing to Skype for Business and it makes life more difficult for companies working with various clients on a daily basis.

  12. Print malfunction when trying to print directly from the Teams desktop app

    Symptom: a user is opening an office 365 file ( I have tried with Word and Excel) and choose to edit in Teams (that means the user is only choosing edit. Not edit in a browser or local application.).
    Then, the user want to print the document (which is now open for editing in the Teams desktop app). The user chooses File – Print.

    The ‘Print’ menu is shown. When the user clicks the Print icon, there shows a popup from Word saying: ‘your PDF-file is ready to print’ . There are two buttons in the bottom of that popup:…

    2. Click on the image in the chat window.

  16. keyboard focus when adding a contact


    1. Create a contact group

    2. Click …

    3. Click "Add a contact to this group"

    Observe that keyboard focus is lost. Instead, it should be transferred to the "Type a name" filed in the modal dialog that appears.

  17. Teams.exe - Installation has failed Error Pop Up

    This error message appeared after a user has logged back into the computer. It looks like Teams is trying to update itself but has failed to.

    Temporary workarounds we have done is to remove Teams and download the latest update through the Teams website. But when Teams pushes another update, the same error message will appear.

    Another workaround we did is go to C:\ProgramData\User\Microsoft\Teams and set the security permission of that folder so the user has full control.And then do a restart on the machine.

    I wanted to ask if anyone has encountered this error and if there's hopefully a…

  18. It looks like you're not connected to the internet

    "It looks like you're not connected to the internet.
    Or you're just temporarily disconnected."
    Alert is appearing on the channel on teams for my entire company on the floor. We are all connected to the internet but it still gives this error.

  19. Allow sending images/screenshots to external users

    Why is it not allowed to send screenshots to users outside organisation? It's a big step back comparing to Skype for Business, especially for the companies working with various clients on a daily basis.

  20. Hyperlinks no longer working in documents opened through the desktop app

    After the most recent update hyperlinks are no longer functioning on any of the the documents opened within the Teams desktop app. If you hover over the linked text/image you can see the link address but nothing happens on click.
    The same links work as intended when opened through the Teams web app or within their respective program (powerpoint,excel,word...)

    Checked for firewall/network interference and found none. These are all working websites/addresses.

    Current teams version - 1.2.00.27559 (64-bit)
    Preferred browser - Google Chrome
