  1. Consuming a lot of Windows memory

    Teams are consuming too much computer memory unnecessarily.

    Skype for Business consumes less memory than teams.

    Resolves this annoying problem as 4GB computers suffer when using the Teams application.

  3. Teams Bug - When tenant admin deletes a user, a notification is displayed that the team owner deleted the user. This is not correct.

    When a tenant admin removes a user from Office365, the user is also removed from all groups obviously. This triggers a notification in Teams saying that the user has been removed from the team. The notification wrongly says that the team owner (or one of the team owners) deleted the user from the team. This is not correct, and causes the team owners to think that their account has been compromised.
    A better way to handle this event is just a simple email to the team owners, or at least an option to disable said notifications. In any case, if…

  4. Incoming Call Queue calls Issue - Mobile Client

    Incoming PSTN calls that arrive into a Call Queue cannot be correctly answered on the Mobile Teams clients (iOS and Android) by any of the CQ members. The incoming call is displayed but it looks like the integration of the Teams client into the Mobile operation system (iOS and Android) is not functioning correctly and the call keeps ringing even after accepting it. After a while the calls drops.This issue does not occour when calling a phone number assigned directly to a user.

  5. can't reply to a previous message

    in personal chats if i'd like to reply to a previous message (some other messages have been exchanged since then) i have no option to reply in reference to it, making it hard to see what the answer is in response to. all other good messaging apps have this feature by now.

    it's a feature in team chats.

  6. Team macOS app not working

    I've been using the Team macOS app for months now. Yesterday, out of a sudden it crashed and will not start up again. The app launches, but when it is trying to log in, this does not work (see screenshot).

    I already tried to:


    • restart mac

    • clear some application data / caching things

    • re-install teams app

    It still is not working. I also attached the log file, maybe this helps.

  7. If teams is minimized it shows me as away after 5/10 minutes

    Teams shows me as away when the desktop app is minimized. I am still working but my team thinks I am away. Very annoying!

  8. Users can no longer preview/expand images

    For a couple weeks, no one on my team has been able to expand image files to preview them — both those posted in chats and in channels. Instead, when a user clicks on an image to expand it, she gets a broken image icon. We have to download images to view them expanded.

  9. macOS: teams video call freezes on notifications of teams (toast)

    When I'm in a video call and a "popup" (toast) notification of teams is shown, for example because of a chat in a different channel or a notification of a new meeting starting, the video in the current call freezes for a while.

    I'm on macOS Catalina (10.15.4)
    You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.4460. It was last updated on 14/03/2020.

  10. 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.

  12. Microsoft Teams sends voice email messages which fail SPF checks

    Whenever you call someone in Microsoft Teams and they do not get your call, you can leave them a voice message in the app.

    Teams will then send an email message to the recipient's mailbox with the voice message information, the transcription and an attached audio file. Teams will also send it from the caller's email address (e.g. From: John.Doe@example.com).

    These email messages are sent in such a way that an Exchange Transport Rule like the one attached in the PNG file will flag them unexpectedly, because they seem to be sent from IP address(es) not included in the…

  13. 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.

  15. Using Share screen to share an Excel Worksheet is problematic on the receiving end.

    Sharing an Excel spreadsheet under the Window heading is problematic. On the receiving end it sometimes displays as blank(white) or just a static image where participants cant see any activity like scrolling, highlighting a cell, etc. It works fine when sharing through the Desktop heading, but sharing the application (Window) itself presents the issues above.

    Windows10 Enterprise
    Ms Teams 1.3.00.15561(64bit)
    IE and Goggle Chrome
    HP Elitebook

    I've already cleared those Teams cache folders under %appdata%. Also performed a re-install of Ms Teams. The Excel files are small, still KB's in size. I once tried sharing an IE browser and it…

  16. Attendees are able to share screen even when it is disabled

    When we are attending our online classes on teams ,organizers has disabled screen-sharing for attendees but we can do it just by minimizing our screen and it will show the option to share our screen. And there is another thing when an organizer is screen sharing and another person/attendee starts it by using the bug ,it sometimes stops sharing screen but still shows to the organizer that his/her screen is sharing.

  17. Team Mobile Disconnecting when iPhone Locks.

    Teams Mobile MUST remain connected, at least the audio stream, when the iPhone goes to the lock screen (basically function like a normal conference dial in).

    Teams is useless for meetings on the go if i have to hold my phone up and poke it every 30 seconds to stay on a meeting.

  18. Files shared to a team don't show in the mobile app

    I am in a class team, and a piece of homework was set with a file uploaded to the team. All of my classmates couldn't access the files from the app on their mobile app (both Android and iPhone), only by accessing the desktop website or app, either on their computer or by requesting the desktop site in their mobile browser.
