  1. I can't access my remote desktop connection bar while sharing my screen

    The Teams control bar is displayed above the remote desktop connection bar when I share my screen. I have to stop sharing to access the rdp connection bar.

  2. Right clicking on Teams taskbar icon does not have context menu functionality

    Adding a context menu when right-clicking on Teams would significantly reduce the number of clicks required to access documents and files within a Teams Channel. Currently, the only options are 'Available', 'New Chat', 'Settings', 'Sign Out', and 'Quit'. Please add the ability to pin Teams Channels.

  3. Screen sharing causes rapid and un-necessary firing of paint events and causes considerable flicker on the sharing W10 PC

    We develop software and have noticed that a relatively high percentage of applications flicker on the sharing W10 PC when shared.

    This happens for example with some Windows settings, web browsers, and so on.

    It does not happen on some apps.

    It did not happen on a C# .NET video selected frame displaying app of ours.

    It does it on other non .NET apps of ours where we are doing complex graphics.

    In all cases the images are static and not changing the screen content. Web browser displays can be dynamic - but it does it even when not.

    It…

  4. Floating Bar When Creating Teams Meeting

    When creating a MS Teams meeting from within Teams, there was a floating bar that appeared when the create new meeting was opened. It was over the title bar and at first I didnt know it was there except when I started typing the title of the meeting and it didnt show the entire text because of the floating bar on top. See image ending in "33". I was able to move that floating bar out of the way but not it shows in the same place everytime I create a new meeting. See image ending in "54". The floating…

  6. Close window [x] button doesn't work what so ever

    Instead, the x button acts as the "minimize" button, but when you Alt-Tab, the window is still present. The icon of Teams is gone from the bar but the window still interferes with Alt-Tabing aka, you effectively can't close the window unless you quit Teams altogether.

  7. Cursor should be in "Add to contacts" field in dialogue when option is selected

    When I click "Add to contacts", the dialogue box appears but my cursor does not automatically go to the single field displayed. I have to click on the field to get there. It is a very annoying second step.

  8. Assignment "Return" button is grayed-out for forms quiz

    There's a bug when trying to return Forms Quiz feedback via Teams for some (but not all) students in a class.

    After some students completed an assignment that included a Forms Quiz, I hit the [Return] button to share my feedback with them promptly.

    Now that [Return] button is grayed-out, however, so there doesn't seem to be any way to return the feedback and scores to any of the other students in the class.

    This could be resolved by allowing the teacher to continue to Return additional assignments after feedback is given to some students.

    I understand why teachers might…

  9. Change notification close icon tooltip!

    I've noticed many times and felt like mentioning, the tooltip for the close notification icon reads something like what I've attached in the screenshot.
    Not really an issue but why not change the tooltip to just 'close' or something like that.

  13. Inconsistency: In web version of Teams app launcher it cannot open app in new tab

    Using the web version of 365 apps. In Outlook the app launcher allows you to right-click open an app in a new tab; but in Teams there is no such option. Being able to open to a new tab is very useful. Can all the 365 apps be consistent with that?

    Add the ability to "pop out" a chat so that multiple separate chats can occur at once.

  15. When typing in the dark theme, the text becomes somethimes white, people with the light theme cannot read it.

    This is not only for the wiki, but also when copying pasting text from previous chats in the dark theme and send it to people with the light team is really bad.

  18. Text transcription in chat

    While I'm on a ThinkSmart in teams display mode, I think this is for more platforms.
    Add the ability to transcribe voice to text in a chat. The keyboard isn't the greatest option.

  19. Teams display switch orgs

    Teams Display - Lenovo ThinkSmart. No option to switch orgs.
    This would only be bad, but I entered a call which asked me if I wanted to switch orgs and it did. Great, the functionality is there. But I couldn't figure how to switch back. I have the option on the desktop, I have the option on a Poly CCX 500, I don't have the option on the ThinkSmart which is running as a Teams display.
    BTW, really like the Display functionality over the old phones UI.

  20. No way to set skin tone default colors

    While the yellow "skin tone" on emojis has been generally accepted by a great many people, once skin tone became available for various commonly used emojis, standard yellow was no longer acceptable.

    I'm not referring to any of the dozens of "here's a workaround" responses, but making non-"default" (yellow) skin tones be treated as equal.
