  1. 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

  2. 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.

  4. Show for members feature is not affecting channel visibility

    As an Owner of a Team, there is no longer a way to show or hide a channel for all members after a channel is created. Each member will have to go to each channel, click the ellipsis and select "Show" to see the channel.

    Going through team ellipsis > Manage Team > Channels tab > selecting "Show for members" on a channel no longer has any effect for existing or new members.

    Creating a channel through the graph api at /v1.0/teams/channels and using the isFavoriteByDefault property in the body is no longer working either.

  6. Channel Notifications still notifying on muted channels

    I have a large(ish) Team of 172 members and have at least a dozen instances of people telling me that they are getting notifications of new posts even though they have the channel notifications turned off or even have the channel itself hidden. I have verified that they have their notifications set to Off for "All new posts" and/or that they do indeed have the channel(s) hidden. They still get banner and Activity Feed notifications whenever there is a new post, even without any mentions at all.

    I have provided a couple of screenshots to demonstrate. One is of the…

    - The backend folder of the channel

  9. 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?

  10. 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…

  13. We couldn't add a mate to the group

    Unable to add existing member of Teams to Favorites or Groups. Error message is "We couldn't add a mate to the group" There is no help for this error and nothing in the Googleverse for it either. It's really quite annoying not knowing why something is not performing the way you expect and that there are NO answers or SOLUTIONS for the query.

  14. "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.

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  17. Formats disappearing in Excel workbook shared in Teams

    We are having issues with formats on a shared excel workbook in Teams. We create a new week by copying the previous one and pasting in a new tab. This worked fine for a while but now it loses all formatting - every font, colour, box - its very annoying! All the data is there including formulas but does anyone know how to stop this?

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
