  1. Cannot sort contacts by status.

    Allow users to sort the contacts in chat, the same way you can in Skype for Business - by Groups/Teams, Status, Relationships, New - and perhaps add the Recent and Suggested as tabs there as well.

  4. Zoom out - hidden channels no longer accessible

    On the Windows desktop app when you use Ctrl+-/Zoom under Profile pic menu/mouse scroll wheel to zoom out (smaller text size), it is no longer possible to access the hidden channels in a Team. Clicking on the 'Hidden channels' under each Team results in now UI response. Even when you reset the zoom using Ctrl++or the Reset Zoom icon under the Profile Pic>Zoom menu, the hidden channels remain inaccessible. The only way to fix the problem is to restart the app completely. I have tested this with multiple users to verify, but have not tried in the Mac desktop app.…

  5. Android app keyboard space is permanently active

    Keyboard space on Android app marked with ? In the attached IMG should collapse when keyboard is inactive.

    This issue occurs on app launch and continues to persist after typing on the keyboard. No action seems to resolve this and the space remains active with either an active keyboard during typing or empty space when keyboard is inactive.

  7. On iOS splash screen is a blinding white even when dark mode is selected.

    Would be nice if the splash screen was black so it doesn’t blind you for a few seconds when you open Teams at night when dark mode is on :)

  10. Guest names have double quotes and backslashes around their names, their initials are missing

    It started this monday in Teams application on Windows, in Czech locale. Guest names ("Host" in the Czech language) are enclosed in double quotes and with backslashes. For that affected users (most of them, maybe all), there are also missing initial letters of their name (e.g. instead of "JB" for Joe Black, there is only an icon of the user).

    It seems that double quotes are replaced with backslashes and next double quotes on next login and it is growing. After few days, the name may completely hide in double quotes and backslashes.

    Please analyze and try fix: - why…

  11. splash screen is white even when dark mode is enabled

    It's inconsistent with the rest of the dark theme and it's a very bright screen.
    Occurs on both Android and iOS.

  12. Tool bar does not auto-hide during video calls.

    The tool bar appears when I move my mouse into the Teams video call window. However it does not disappear automatically even if I move the mouse out of the window. This obscures part of the screen and in particular hides information the presenter is attempting to show. This results in a lot of interruptions with participants asking the presenter to scroll up so that the information can be seen. It also gets in the way of screenshots.
    The auto-hide tool bar is not reliable, and it stays on the screen too long or does not hide itself at all…

  14. Custom background preview is mirrored but main display is not

    When I was designing some custom backgrounds, I found that the images in the preview pane are mirrored but the main display is not. This was not discovered until I actually used the background which appeared normal in preview but was backwards for the viewers.

  15. There is not enough room on the title bar to drag the window when using split screen or monitors in portrait mode

    The available click / drag area is about 1/8 of an inch. See RED highlight on attached image. There should always be a 1-2 inch drag handle in the title bar, or better yet, GET THE SEARCH BOX OUT OF THE TITLE BAR. Let windows handle the window management things. At least Visual Studio's cramming of the menu in the title bar complies with my OS visibility settings, and can be turned off.

  16. Screen sharing control bar moves after clicking certain icons on it

    When viewing a shared screen, clicking the "show conversation" or "show participants" icons causes the control bar to move left by several inches in order to accommodate the newly opened sidebar.

    I've accidentally requested control in several meetings when trying to quickly view the chat because of this, as when the sidebar is opened, the "request control" button moves exactly where the "show conversation" and "show participants" icons had previously been.

  17. Teams UI Issue in half screen mode: Teams pane is hiding tabs in halft screen mode

    When I use teams in half screen mode along with other applications for the multitasking purpose, The teams pane in the application hides the portion of the current working tab. It makes hard to use teams in half screen mode along with other application and restrict my productivity.
    There should be an option for hiding teams list pane for better usablity.

    Also when I resize the teams application size, my application doesn't change the size according to the teams application. Instead of this it appears scroll bar for that.
