  2. Copy image from chat

    When a contact post an image in chat, I should be allowed to copy image and paste it somewhere else (i.e. a word file, or onenote document) but the image seems to be blank.

  4. 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

  5. Teams keeps ringing after I pick up a call on PC

    My MS teams client on PC sometimes keeps ringing even after I have already picked up the call. I can talk on the call, but it seems as there is another call from the same user ringing or simply teams didn't acknowledge I picked up the call and keeps ringing.

    I noticed this happens more often when I have my android tablet logged in as well to teams. I have at the moment a tablet, desk phone (yealink T56A) and android phone logged in as well as my PC desktop client.

  7. You should be able to open teams with run command

    Almost all Office apps can be called using the run command in Windows ( windows key + R). Eg. you can use winword to open word; excel for excel, powerpnt for powerpnt.

    However, I cannot figure out how to call teams in an efficient manner there. Since the executable is called Teams.exe, I supposed it should be just typing teams there to launch the program.

  9. On Teams Admin - Why does Devices show that Yealink Teams Phone show it is offline even though the phone is working?.

    On Teams Admin - Why does Devices show that Yealink Teams Phones show it is offline even though the phone is working?
    The work around to get it back online is I have to do the IP address of the Yealink Phone using Andriod os and remotely reboot or physically have to reboot the Yealink Phone

  10. Can't answer incoming calls.

    I've missed 2 out of 2 incoming calls now because pressing the answer button did nothing. The phone was unlocked. It hit the button a dozen times, but it just kept ringing.

    Android, Google Pixel 2

  11. Mobile: Sign In Causes Outlook Sign Out

    Signing into Teams on Android causes the Outlook app to requiere sign in again. Then signing in with Outlook signs out of Teams. And the loop continues.

  15. Status - Set the Amount of Time a Status Should Display as Available

    I would like to adjust the amount of time my status displays as available (e.g., after 60 minutes of inactivity, it displays as Away). Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks

  16. Teams Android Login security bug

    If I changed my Microsoft teams password in Desktop and then try to use the teams Android app, it prompts me to enter the credentials again as a notification, but if I ignore it, I can still see my previos chat history and files. Now, this is a security bug, like in case if an employee is leaving, he still can access files which he had used in teams through the mobile app.

  17. Guest users are able to receive calls although the private call is not allowed for guest users.

    I've tested following guest experience scenario.
    Teams user in the organization: Allow private calling - ON
    Guest user: Allow private calling - OFF

    In this case, Guest users are not able to make private calls but able to receive calls from users in the organization. It should not be the expected behavior.

  18. There is a way to make a private chat even though you have turned off the setting to allow private chat at the admin center.

    There is a way to make a private chat even though you have turned off the setting to allow private chat at the admin center.
    ( "Allow users to chat privately")

    Click on the user name in the team and click the chat icon in the displayed dialog.
    Then private chat will be started.

  19. Can't join a meeting: stuck on "Connecting..." screen

    Sometimes I can't connect to a meeting. It's just stuck on "Connecting..." screen and never lets me in. I have to restart Teams app several times before I finally can join. I noticed that when Teams doesn't say that there're several people already in (and I know for fact several people have already joined), then I'll definitely have hard time connecting. I'm using the Teams application on Windows. I experienced this issue with meetings created in Outlook by someone else (I wasn't the meeting organizer).

  20. Poor Clipboard Capabilities - Cannot select all, copying to clipboard limited to very small amount of text

    Using Teams Client - Cannot use CTRL+A to select entire chat message, very difficult to select text in general. Am able to select limited amounts of text by click and drag to select, but even then can only get about 1 screen worth, and if the window happens to scroll while trying to select, lose some of the selection and have to start all over...

    This type of thing was the basic functionality of Windows in the past. Notepad supports copy/paste and it is about as simple as you can get. Please fix the basics.
