  1. Share content is not refreshing with new windows

    During an active Teams meetings new applications and windows that are opened are not refreshed into the Share Content bottom window.

    For example if I'm in a Teams meeting and open the Share Content window I see everything open on my machine. If I then close the Share Content drawer and open a new instance of Microsoft Word this new version of word will not show up in the Share Content window until I leave the meeting and come back.

    This functionality have been working for over a year and seems to have stopped working in the last 2 weeks.

  2. No backgrounds in MacOS 11 Bigsur.

    Image files are in Library/ApplicationSupport/Microsoft/ Teams/Backgrounds/Uploads but aren't showing in the app.
    Nor is the blur background option available.

  3. Person is typing shows another persons photo

    If shuttling between chats, invariably the <person> is typing bubbles show the photo of the LAST person chatting with.
    This means the photo is invalid and can cause confusion. The issue can be replicated across users.

  4. Teams does not regain focus when in background desktop on secondary monitor

    On my second monitor, I have 5 desktops. One desktop hosts my chat programs, teams, slack, flowdock.

    When teams app is not in focus, meaning not the visible app on my second monitor and another desktop is in focus on the second monitor, using cmd+tab or clicking the teams icon on the dock does not bring the teams window into focus.

    It does show in the system menu bar as active application, however, I have to manually navigate to the desktop containing teams on the second monitor.

    This is different behavior than any other application on my mac. Cmd+tab or…

  5. Share Content does not show all windows

    When starting a meeting in a channel in a Team, I have noticed that the previews in the "Share Content" do not update and windows that were not open at the beginning of the meeting.

    So if I start a meeting and don't have Firefox open, I cannot see that in the "Share Content" preview as an option to share (though I can share the desktop but that is not convenient).

    Windows 10, Version 20H2
    Microsoft Teams: 1.3.00.28779 (Not on Exchange Online (yet))

    Teams is running through a University account

  7. Holding ctrl+LeftArrow in text edit box in chat causes text cursor to loop back to end of line.

    Confirmed this issue with coworkers, and also confirmed that it did not occur on previous versions.

    Cursor looping issue does not occur in the opposite direction(holding ctrl+RightArrow)

  9. Screen sharing macOS: Only working while "System Preferences.app" is running

    Current behaviour:
    When clicking on the "Share content" icon a message ("We need permission to share your screen. Go to Security & Privacy > Screen Recording to give permission and start sharing.") appears and none of my screens/windows are available to start sharing. Teams already has the permission for "Screen Recording" in the "Security & Privacy" preferences dialog. However, as soon as I open "System Preferences.app" (any submenu) and try again while it is still open everything works as expected. I can consistently reproduce this behaviour.

    Expected behaviour:
    Screen sharing works independently of the "System Prefenrences.app" once the "Screen Recording"…

  11. links in meeting chat

    Hello,
    We discovered a bug that only occurs in the meeting chat on Microsoft Teams client/desktop application for Windows.
    Neither in conversations and channels, nor in Teams for the web/internet browser.

    Under these conditions, it concerns hyperlinks in text messages during meetings.
    if we copy and paste the text of a link, it will automatically format itself and remain intact.
    But if we use the "Insert link" function, to reduce the size of the link and be able to give it a name, the hyperlink may change and no longer work. We have identified a specific example (of an internal…

  12. Wiki code blocks adding extra Zero Width Space Characters

    When typing into a code block in a wiki, Teams adds zero widt space characters after any openng or closing curly braces. To reproduce in the wiki, start a code block by typing 3 backticks, then add some code that includes tcurly braces. For example... Get-Volume | select driveletter, FilesystemLabel, @{L='% Free';E={($.sizeremaining/$.size).ToString("P")}}

    After entering the code, copy from the code block to a PowerShell window and observe the added character (represented by question marks), and the code will fail if executed.

    This did not occur earlier this year.

  14. Users hard deleted from AAD continue to appear in Teams user cache for up to 2 months after being deleted

    Deleted users should definitely not be searchable within Teams after the account has been hard deleted from AAD. Ideally, all references of the account should be removed from future Team meeting invites and some sort of notification message should be displayed to alert colleagues that the user is no longer contactable via Teams as they have left the organisation.

    Deleted users continuing to be visible in Teams gives the perception that those users still exist within the organisation. This causes confusion for end users and leads them to question whether users that have left the organisations have actually been off-boarding…

  15. Automated audio gain control messing up lavalier microphone

    Hi, the automated audio gain control by Teams is messing up my plug-and-play Lavalier microphone. Everytime I try to speak on Teams, I monitor that the audio level is zerorised. This problem is now also affecting my 2 other teammates. We had been using it on Teams just fine until the recent update. Please fix it!!
    We are able to use the Lavalier perfectly fine on Zoom and other calling platform. So we are sure that it is not a microphone problem.

  16. Breakouts and presenter mode

    I am using TEAMS for education. I have one glitch. I wonder if you might know why my students are not getting presenter power when they are in their breakouts? I have to go into each room individually and manually give it to them.

    It would also be super helpful to be able to randomly assign students to breakouts.

    Thanks for your help,
    Amanda

  17. Remove Scheduled meeting on TEAMS for all

    When Teams group owner creates a scheduled meeting with option of repeat. All members get the scheduled meeting on their Teams calendar.
    When the owner cancel the schedule meeting or remove the series on his/her calendar, on members calendar show cancel. It is very disturbing especially in Education where students have many courses. I know that student can remove series on their calendar but this is not practical. I suggest when the owner of the group cancel/remove schedule meeting, this should automatically reflect on members calendar. Which means members don't have to remove series. Once the owner cancel the meeting,…

  19. Toast/Banner Notifications Cover Chat Box in Pop-out

    When chatting in a maximized pop-out window (e.g. a screen share), toast notifications for the active chat cover the chat input text box.

    When a chat window has focus, there shouldn't be toast notifications for that chat at all. But notifications for a chat in a focused window especially shouldn't obscure the chat input.
