  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. While in a Teams meeting, I’m shown as Away

    While in a Teams meeting, my status gets set to Away if I am just listening to the call. It should continue to show me as In A Meeting for the entire hour regardless on if I’m the one talking or not.

  7. Remote control does not work when sharing with a Linux client

    When sharing between windows clients, remotes can be given control of the mouse pointer. This does not work when sharing with a Linux client; the windows client doesn't even have the option to yield control.

  8. When using Crestron Teams Rooms, we cant 'fit to frame' the participants.

    We cant do a fit to frame like we can on Teams on a workstation. Often, with 3 participants on a Teams call using one of our Crestron MTR units, someone's view is cut off.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. do not disturb

    When you set your status to Do Not Disturb (DND) and then allow the computer to go idle the status changes to Away. When someone calls you in this Away state the call rings the PC. I would have thought the client would honor the DND status. If I test the same behavior using the web client I do not get the ring and only receive the missed call notification.

    This seems like a bug or at a minimum an inconsistent behavior. Cannot find anything definitive that states what is expected.

  14. If I manually set a status it should persist until I change it

    Manual setting of status should include the ability to set a duration. For example, if I am busy for the next few days and I set my status to busy, it should stay at busy - even through a logout/login or reboot.

  15. Teams should have an option to keep additional cameras "live" in the background for camera switching.

    In a system using the Logitech Rally camera the camera will go into sleep mode when it's not the current camera in use and then loose it's PTZ location. In a boardroom setting this is problematic because you may be switching between cameras during the meeting.

    What would be optimal as a layer of usability on top of this issue is to have an option to allow the remote attendees the ability to choose themselves which camera they want to view.

  18. I'm shown as available even when I'm disconnected.

    I've been sent messages while I was disconnected from Teams, saying that I was shown as available, even when my computer wasn't even on. One or two weeks ago I downloaded the Teams App for Android, but three days later I uninstalled it.

  19. When organizing a phone- or video-conferenz via Teams and taking notes via OneNote, participants are not automatically ticked as in Skype.

    When organizing a phone- or video-conferenz via Teams and taking notes on my own in OneNote, participants are not automatically ticked in the participants section of the notes header when they join.
    When using Skype it has this function. Would be very beneficial to enable this functionality in combination with OneNote also in Teams.

  20. While taking team lecture any one can remove anyone

    While taking a team lecture any participant can remove any other participant ant this create a non serious interference in lecture
    Some disturbing elements mis use this activity so only organiser should have authority to interfere in activities like this.
