  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.

  4. 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. 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.

  8. What is going on with new arrangement of views?

    What is going on with new arrangement of views? Now they flit all over the screen when going from chat and out again. Zoom the excessive sidebar of people smaller, and then the chat is tiny too. Is teams for adults of childeren? Why does it have to change? Its not even aligned to other microsoft products, why does the window open up in a defined size each time? Why does it not remember my last setting, last time I had a chat? Please pick a layout, and stick with it. (not this one) Thanks!

  10. Duration stops working on the Windows client

    The duration stops working and just switches to away, even when set. Others have found that you can delete the contents of the Teams folder to resolve the issue. This worked for me, however, after a while, it stops working again.

  12. Removed student still showing up in assignments

    After a student is removed from a Team, their name still shows up from the Teacher's point of view. Because the student still shows they need to turn in an assignment, teachers are unable to close out said assignments or quizzes, etc.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  17. 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.
