  3. 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.

  4. Snowblind! White screen of nothingness when opening Teams.

    Snowblind! White screen of nothingness when opening Teams.

    Workaround: I can get teams to work if I toggle the channel from Prod to SlimCore@SpaceTest10 and back to Prod. I have to do this each time I want to use Teams on this PC!?!?

  5. 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.

  6. 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,…

  7. When chatting with multiple people, when I switch between chats Teams sometimes places me well above the last read line

    If I chat with 2 or more people, when I switch from one person to the other, it will often place the scroll bar well up above where the last read line is, so I have to scroll down. When I do, it often takes 5 or more seconds to load all the IMs I've already read as well as the new ones. I either see blank space or solid rectangles where the text should be until it actually loads.

    This makes it difficult to maintain good flow during multiple conversations.

  9. Teams opens up at every start up

    Teams opens up automatically every time I start up my computer. Removing it from the list of programs to run at every start up won't work since it will always add itself there again after the next start up and thus every time I use my laptop I have to wait for Teams to open and then close it before doing anything else. This is rather annoying since I only use Teams from time to time and it would be awesome to be able to use it just when I actually need it.
    I'm running Windows 7 and I'm talking…

  10. The activity feed not updating in desk top

    When I view the activity list on my iOS device, the unread items then do NOT show up on the desktop app. The only way I can see the new activities is to log into the Teams website version to see the activities that need attention. Once I click and view the activity in the feed, it then shows up in the desktop app, but any un-read activities don't show up in the desktop app until read in the browser setting.

  12. Speed Dial/Contact Naming Issues

    If I try to include someone's nickname in the Full Name field of a contact I'm adding to my Speed Dial list, I get an invalid name error. The problem seems to be that the field doesn't like the use of quotation marks around the nickname. Yes, I know, I could use other than quotation marks, but that's conventional. Please fix this rather than asking me to adopt a new convention.

  14. Join button and inaccessible meeting room for team members

    I came across same situation. I have created meeting room for my team few weeks ago. Everything works perfect like 2 week, than some members of my development team began to have problems with joining the meeting (reoccurring one established via Outlook), as the join button was missing for them. Then, I needed to record the meeting (I have the rights to do so) - it was yesterday - until this event, I was able to joint the pinned meeting via Join button. The recording was started, everything seemed OK, I properly stopped the recording and then it happened. I…

  16. Display of emoji in chat window discrepancy

    Teams renders some Emoji's in chat differently from the preview pane. For example, the FacePalm animation in chat is rendered as the standard Unicode Emoji.

    If you click on the 3 dots of a general channel in the favorites list, the option menu will not be shown. if you select a general channel and click on the 3 dots next to the title (above the conversations), the option menu shows.

  18. 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. Sign-in loop

    I was prompted on tasks.microsoft.com that my password expires and to change it. I changed it. This caused Teams to require to sign back in with the new password. Upon clicking "Sign In" on the desktop app, the app closed, relaunched and told me again to sign back in with my new password. Clicking again "sign in" caused the app to close and restart back on the previous screen. I looped this about 15 times. Sign out from start menu did nothing. Teams app while the "sign back in" screen is shown is unusable. Had to reinstall.
