  1. If teams is minimized it shows me as away after 5/10 minutes

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

  2. My status will not update from away to available unless I activate the teams window.

    My teams status will update to away automatically, but I've noticed that after returning to the computer, the status remains "away" unless the teams window becomes the active window. Once I activate the teams window again, the status will reset automatically after a few seconds. However, this is not intuitive, if I have teams running in the background, it will show me as away even if I've been back and active on my computer for hours, and I won't even be aware.

  3. Teams screen sharing mouse pointer not visible from Linux client

    When sharing the screen from a Windows client, the mouse pointer is visible, which allows the presenter to draw attention to particular things on screen.

    When sharing the screen on Linux, the mouse pointer is not visible.

  6. Presence broken in 1.3.00.30866

    Presence indicators are mostly not displaying. App has been restarted, cache cleared, it works for a while, but then stops working. Especially noticed when a guest in multiple orgs and switching between them.

  7. Status is not up-to-date

    Some people are online but status shows Away; some people are actually offline but status shows Online; some people are online but if they don't actually open Teams window, status shows they are offline (means if they minimize, status shows offline). These kinds of situations happen a lot during our use.

  9. Teams Status is lagging in Teams Desktop Client

    When opening up Teams and checking the status of a colleague, it shows that they're available even tough they are in a phone call. When you switch Tabs from "Chat" to "Teams" and back (for example) only then the status gets updated.

  11. Duration

    If I set the Duration of my Presence on a specific state for a specific period of time, it should stay for the period I set, but at the moment the function doesn’t work.

  14. I am receiving phone calls thru teams when out of office

    When I am in out of office mode (holiday), I still receive external calls on the mobile app (my pc app is not running as I'm not in the office).

    When my status is out of office mode calls should not go thru the mobile app.

  15. The Last Seen Time would not refresh anymore when set the Status to Away

    I seems to remember when I set my status to Away, if there is any activity on Teams, the Last Seen Time will be refreshed.

    For example, I set my status to Away at 1000, if I had activity like replying at 1030, the Last Seen Time will refresh to 1030.

    But now, if I set my status to Away at 1000, if I had activity like replying at 1030, the Last Seen Time still remain at 1000.

    I seems to remember still able to see the Last Seen Time refresh around December.

  16. Status updates very slowly

    Teams status updates to others very slowly no matter whether I change it on the app or the windows program. It’s annoying. People think I’m away when I’m not or available when I’m offline

  17. status goes to away when i stop typing to read, and then after it says i'm away, i will start typing and doing work, and still shows me in

    My current status goes to away when i stop typing to read, and then after it says i'm away, i will start typing and doing work, and it still shows me as away and won't update until i open up the teams chat window and click into chatting someone, not useful, as i would like to show to my colleagues that I am available, with skype we had options to change status settings and timers, with teams we don't.
