  1. Whenever you click back in the app regardless of what screen you are on you go back to activity.

    When you click back you should go back to the screen or set of drop-down options on the team list you were on before. Having to navigate back into each screen to reach like 15 messages or so is driving me up the wall.

  2. Notification

    I'm getting notifications at random points all throughout the day, but it isn't to anything real because the app isn't syncing. Received 3 notifications on Tuesday at once telling me about messages last week that failed to send. Chats are days behind. Way too buggy...

  3. Channels appear as hidden

    For some reason, despite having plenty of free space, Teams hide channels, as evidenced in the screenshot. I assume this is a bug since it severely limits usability, and is one of many reasons for using one of the much better products out there.

  4. When copy table from admin interface, it is not table on excel anymore

    (Where is "admin interface from the category list when reports these??)

    When I have call to be troubleshooting, the browser does not work, especially when I need to compare working and not working calls. It might be a shock, but browsers are not perfect on this.

    So I go the call details and till "debug reports". Try to copy the details of the reports, and past to the excel gives everything in one column. When the source is multiple columns, but output is on one column, I call that as a bug.

  5. Debug Reports have no real subject

    (Where is category Admin Interface for these reports??)

    Back to issue:
    When troubleshooting the call issue on user and go the the debug mode, it looks like attached picture shows (after I have closed all different sections).

    The bug on here is, there are no name of the report. It should say which media type the report is.

    And if you fix that, could you also add possibility to close these at once, so that I do not need to do one by one.

  7. Guest cannot access Teams using browser

    We use Teams (Office 365) and our guest wanted to access our meeting, using the browser access possibility. We tried to accept their request to join us, but the action failed and the guest remained in the "waiting room". Our guest's workaround was to download and use the desktop app. But a working guest access by way of the web browser would be much better ...

  11. Guest permissions are not populated to new channels

    Guest permissions both set in Teams and admin center apply only to General channel. If we create a new channel under the team, guest users can reply to posts, and even create new posts.

  12. Word 2016. Using Quick Part w/ auto-numbered caption screws up cross-references to other figures/tables in the same caption category.

    Bug in Word 2016 (and previous versions). We create a Quick Part to insert a table with an auto-numbered figure caption; this serves as a frame for inserting pictures consistently and quickly. However, if you use the Quick Part to insert a figure frame above an existing figure frame, Word screws up the cross-references. Sometimes it's the cross-reference to the figure before that doesn't get updated (using CTRL+A, F9) or sometimes it's the figure after. If you have 10 or more figures, some of the cross-reference will update to reference the last figure in the file. This basically defeats the…

  16. All Contact Groups under Chat>Contacts are vanishing after logout and re-login

    This is a very strange one and it happened to me twice. I had created a number of Groups with multiple colleagues under the Chat > Contacts tab. I had to logout from Teams and later on re-login Then I realised all Groups were gone! I re-created the Group list (which btw takes a lot of time in my case because of the number of departments/users) and last week I had to logout again and re-login today. To my surprise the Groups were once again gone!

    Obviously this is a bug that needs to be fixed urgently as Teams chat…

  17. "Open application in background" doesn't work when installed on VDI

    When installed in a VDI using the MSI with ALLUSER=1 switch, the "open application in background" option doesn't work. If this was intentional, it needs to be fixed because most of my users don't want to see it full-screen when they log in.

  18. Status

    Please provide an option to ignore my calendar meeting status so I do ‘t randomly show as Busy. Does anyone at MS actually use this product with other MS-Office products?

  19. Can't see my Teams in the sidebar

    When I click on the Teams icon in the sidebar, I should be able to see the Teams that I am subscribed to, but clicking on the button does nothing.

    My Android phone app is a little better, but I can't create new channels within the Teams. Teams is a useful app, but its use is still quite buggy and annoying in many areas.

  20. Prompted For Password When Joined to Azure AD

    Even when logged into a Windows 10 PC that is joined to an organizational Azure AD, MSTeams Still sometimes prompts me for my password. There is no reason for this. My credentials were entered when I logged into the mentioned PC. The OneDrive app and https://www.office.com (via Win 10 Edge) don't do that. Visual Studio doesn't ask for my password when I login to it either...
