  1. private channels must be able to be created by owners and the owner must be able to choose who is in that private channel.

    As a teacher there is sometimes a group work and it would be interesting to create private groups where the other members cannot watch / copy from the private channel.

  2. Issue with new Private Channel creating new site collection in a different managed path than the original team instead of a folder

    My organisation have a governance rule that all Microsoft Teams are created in the Teams managed path however the new private channels are not created as a folder but a new sitecollection which is created in the Sites managed path. Is there any chance for the team to place an option in the teams policy for Microsoft Teams channels to be created in the Teams managed path?

  3. Bug: Inconsistency in being able to add users to Private Channels via Web/Desktop Clients

    Referred from Tech Community: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/can-t-add-members-to-private-channels/m-p/1088400#M42918

    Issue is inconsistency when adding users to private channels via the web and desktop clients. Sometime users can and sometimes users can't. Workarounds to this solution include adding them on mobile (both IoS/Android) and completely removing member from the Team and re-adding them

  7. Teams Admin - Failed to add owner to member roster

    There is a significant bug on the Teams Admin portal.

    For every team we have, it is showing random students as OWNERS of the teams and those who are actually teachers as MEMBERS.

    When using the Team client it reflects the teachers and students accurately.

    Although now it has led to causing an issue where we cannot use the admin to make other staff owners and changing people to members as it picks up the wrong user completely.

    E.G. adding myself to a team and making myself owner would add me to the team, and make a completely random student…

  8. "Link not supported" error in IOS Teams app

    The Teams links in email automatically generated by Teams (...sharing request emails for example) yield an error message in the IOS Teams App:

    "Link not supported. You can't open this link on the mobile app. Please open it on the desktop or web app."

    User impact: users cannot process Teams access requests on their IOS devices.

  9. Applying changes to team members from the Ms teams admin center doesn't do what is requested.

    Applying changes to team members from the Ms teams admin center doesn't do what is requested. For example, when demoting an owner to member, kicks out the user from the Team. Sometimes when doing changes to a member, it kicks out another member from the team.

    Please fix.

  10. Private channel members cannot access files

    I created a private channel and added a spreadsheet to the files section. However the channel members that I invited cannot access the files. How do we fix this?

  11. Teams owner added as member from Teams creation tab

    If you create a team and try to set a new owner directly from the Team Creation tab that user is added only as member even though in Admin Center it shows as owner. To work around the issue you have to make that user a member and then a owner again.

  12. We can't rename any channels.

    Whenever we rename a Chanel, a new empty folder with the new name is created and the old one can only be accessed via the file explorer.

  13. Renaming a channel isn't applied to all areas that the channel name is used.

    Original Name: "Test Renaming"
    New Name: "Test Renaming1"

    Areas that the old channel name continues to appear.
    - Under the Files tab
    - The backend folder of the channel
    - The url used for "Open in SharePoint"

  14. Teams conversations have disappeared

    I have two accounts on Teams and I can switch from one to another. After using one for some time and changing back to the other, all conversations of the other had disappeared. Only channels are visible, but not the contents. How can I get the conversations back?

  15. channels disappear

    After playing around for a day or so with Teams, I decided to try and convince my office to switch from Slack. My first demonstration of creating channels (after creating multiple ones yesterday) failed as they would disappear immediately after being created. This is in the desktop and web apps in Windows and on Mac. Logging out and back in does not solve the problem. Needless to say, this failure of a demonstration is forcing us to continue using Slack. Maybe we will try again next year.

  18. Teams app class materials

    The class materials folder is not visible in the teams app. This is crazy given that most of the files you wish to view through the app are likely to be in this folder.

  19. Private channels in Teams are not visible in File Explorer

    I'm syncing my Teams files with OneDrive so that I can open them from the File Explorer on my PC. However, these new Private channels don't show up in the File explorer nor can I move files from a public channel to the new private channel I created within the Team.

    Thus, it's only possible to create new files from a Team but no way to neither move a file from OneDrive or the PC to the private channel nor from a channel to the private channel. This makes it almost impossible to move over to using the private channels.
