  1. 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…

  2. The MSTeams people status in outlook is not working for the status FOCUSING.

    The MSTeams people status in outlook is not working for the status FOCUSING. it shows Away instead of focusing.
    Minor observation: I have updated the MS team configuration to show Teams status in OUTLOOK client. it works fine for all status, however it is not working the status from my analytics i.e. FOCUSING.

    Instead of 'Focusing', it shows away in outlook.

  3. Transferred calls should show original caller ID in history

    When a call is transferred from a call queue the original number (Party A) is lost and not stored in the call history for the person it's being transferred to (Party C).

    Instead, they just end up with a list of calls from whoever transferred the call (Party B).

    Party A's Caller ID should be visible by Party C. Preferably with a note that it was transferred by Party B too.

  5. Teams Recording Full Screen Not Available

    Skype had this features, but Teams lacks it in meetings. We have reverted back to Skype for these type of meetings due to the lack of clean recording in Teams. Here's the issue:

    When a presenter is on video and everyone else is an attendee, we Pin the presenter's video to be full screen. We then have someone record the meeting so we can share with others later. When recorded, the meeting shows a four-square grid of the presenter and three other random people. We want the recording to show whatever is pinned or the presentation. Do not have the…

  6. audio static with MS Team, Other apps (Zoom, Webex, etc) work great

    There is audio static when using MS Teams. Company just switched to MS Teams without first test it. We had Webex for several years and it worked great. Not problems. Now with MS Teams, there are huge problems with audio static, even went all users are muted and all presenter is speaking. One meeting organized switched to Zoom because meeting was too static. Now IT has blocked Zoom. But Zoom work great with the same people and same devices. Please have other apps look at MS Teams code to fix the bugs with audio since they are doing something better…

  8. Screen stays active when on the call using an on-ear

    When I take a call/meeting using a phone-like holding, the Teams app doesn't handle the screen correctly and I'm controlling the touch screen with my ear. I believe the proximity sensor should work the same way as the phone experience, hence disabling the screen incl. the digitiser. Using Nokia 7.2, Android 9.0 with 06/2020 updates.

  9. Please provide a way to disable shortcuts on Microsoft Teams App

    Could you provide a way to disable/modify keyboard shortcuts on Microsoft Teams App? There is a really annoying issue where, depending on a keyboard localization and input source, frequently used characters (in this case the slash character "/") are taken over by your App’s keyboard shortcuts. So instead of being able to chat with people and apply a slash character into a sentence, the App displays a dialog window showing the keyboard shortcuts.
    Thank you for your consideration.

    Specs for info:
    - Running on macOS Catalina 10.15.4
    - Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.15561

  10. Tarefa retornada

    Quando uma tarefa é retornada, eu clico em "exibir tarefa" ou, "view assignment". Porém, o aplicativo exibe uma mensagem, que diz, "não é possível levar você para esse destino no momento". Fui e estou sendo prejudicada por essa falha do App.

  14. Guest account deleted

    I had added two guest users. Now the teams channel shows user deleted, I'm unable to add them back. But somehow when I do a name search, their name appears in the guests list. I can now no longer add anyone outside my org as a guest user. I have checked the Azure active directory- and the name of the guest users are being shown there. But these users cannot access the teams - they get an error message stating ' you are not a part of this team'

  15. Switches audio source

    Audio input source randomly switches during some calls from speaker to headset to headphones and so on. This especially happens during the first call of the day after logging in.

  17. Settings surveys vaue not saved

    The settings for Survey (enabled/disabled) is not saved. I turn off surveys , exit from Teams, go back into teams and surveys is disabled.

    A week later, Teams has surveys enabled again.

    This is on the same computer and I did not reinstall Teams during the time period.

    This has happened to multiple other settings for me - notifications, color theme, and more.

    Does this saving and keeping the settings value actually get tested or is Teams always going to be low-quality and tested by end users?

  18. MS Teams automatically adds people to group chats

    Hi Team,

    I have encountered a strange behavior in MS Teams.

    Issue,
    When you initiate a personal call with a member and then add new participants to the call, it will automatically match for a group chat with the new member added and transfer the call into the group chat.
    Further when you add new participants to the call, it will directly add those participant to the group chat exposing the chat history.
    All of this happens automatically without any warnings or user confirmations.

    Steps to re-create,
    1. Create a group chat with 2 other members, let's say "Person A"…

  19. Fill form lagging and loading forever

    Hi, I have fill up this form 'Fill | ' everyday, but everytime I login from my Android phone, the loading gif keeps spinning (like 20mins and I give up waiting) and the form does not load up for me enter any values. My current workaround is to clear data and cache from Apps > Microsoft Teams. But if I do this, I have to login all over again.
    Is there a performance issue with the fill form, that cause this lag?

    This seems to be a bug that I observed for 3 months and it didn't get better. Initially…

  20. Flows do not appear when creating them via Flow Tab (In Channel)

    When creating a flow within a Flow Tab (within a channel) it does create a Team flow but it isn't visible in the Flow Tab. It is only visible under Team Flows within the personal app pinned to the left rail. This is confusing
