  3. 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.

  4. The Teams Meeting add-in causes a crash in Outlook 2016 when switching folders.

    The Teams Meeting add-in for Outlook causes a crash in Outlook 2016 when switching folders. When I remove the add-in Outlook works fine.

    This only happens on my 64-bit machine, not on my 32-bit machine, where I can use the Teams Meeting add-in without any problem.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  9. Private chat messages are sometimes not displayed on the client even though notifications arrive

    We have seen this happen a couple of times in our organisation:

    1) Teams desktop client is running
    2) Somebody writes me a private chat message
    3) I get a notification about the new message, and it's shown in the Activity tab, but not in the actual private chat

    After restarting the client, the message is shown normally.

  11. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. images display inline in chat but not viewer

    Images that are posted in chat are not viewable in their original size within Teams. The viewer opens with a broken link to the image.
    Within Teams Windows App
    Reproduce:
    1. Take a screen shot and paste into the chat window.
    2. Click on the image in the chat window.
    3. The image does not display in viewer.

    Breaks on Windows 10 Teams App
    Microsoft Teams Version 1.2.00.17057 (64-bit). It was last updated on 7/1/19.
    Worked before but don't know exactly when it stopped working.
    This works in the Teams webapp.

  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. After sharing my screen and give control to other user on my same tenant, cannot use the keyboard over a RDP session

    I share my screen with someone on the same tenant, then I give remote control to the other one, the other person can open any application or else write on every applications, but if the local session that is sharing the screen perform a Remote Desktop Session, the person who has remote control, cannot use the keyboard.

    Trying to explain I got the following example:

    This works correctly:

    (Remote (Local Share Screen))

    Here the keyboard is not working, but the mouse is:

    (Remote(Local Share Screen (RDP)))

    Seems that when the nested RDP is being performed the Keyboard is not passing…

  19. Outlook crashes due to the Microsoft Teams Meeting add-in

    I've had a number of crashes in Outlook (Outlook version 1808) caused by the Teams add-in. The specific error from the Event log is:
    Error - Source Outlook - Event ID: 1000
    "Add-in execution error. Outlook crashed during the 'SelectionChange' callback of the 'ExplorerEvents_10' interface while calling into the 'Microsoft Teams Meeting Add-in for Microsoft Office' add-in. "

    I'm not sure what I am doing in Outlook (if anything) when this happens. It seems to just crash randomly, but I suspect I am doing something and just not paying attention. It happens at most about once a day on average,…

  20. Teams Desktop keeps restarting to apply update, but fails

    I have the Teams app installed on my Windows 10 (64bit) machine. Today it started regularly restarting to apply an update. But it seems that it fails to do so, because even after the restart the version number stays the same (Version 1.1.00.18052 (64-Bit)).

    When I check for updates in the app itself, it also tells me that a new version is available and restarts. But same issue as above.

    I also tried downloading the newest version from the Microsoft Teams website, but the problem remains.
