    working on it  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hi everyone, the engineer working on this item has left the company and we’re working on replacing him. I wanted to give you that heads up because the work has paused, which extends our shipping date.

    I really appreciate your patience as we work to get this back to actively worked on.

    Hey Suphatra, all of Teams needs to have its basic international sufficiency engineering addressed. The more things you pile on broken infrastructure, the harder it gets to fix.

    Notice also that any Office documents created in Teams also default to English(US) despite all settings (Windows, Office, keyboard, browser) to the contrary. Teams doesn't even honour the language settings in its own user profile preferences.

    It should be noted also that when you create new documents in a Team, the default language is set to English (US) even if the Team language is say English(UK) or English(Australia). This means that the wrong proofing tools are invoked.

    Not just proofing tools, but also locale settings like date format. It's very confusing and ambiguous seeing mm/dd/yyyy all the time outside the USA (especially when dd <= 12) .

    IMHO these basic items have gone way downhill since the 90s when they "just worked" in all Microsoft products. [Ex Office intl8n and proofing tools PM speaking here!]

    This is something definitely needed in my university setting as we have partners and research centres with their own domains and it is quite difficult to conduct webinars and other events with a managed guest list in Teams. Integration with EventBrite would be handy.

    It's also very important for when you're crossposting channels/teams otherwise you find yourself having to @mention possibly dozens of team or channel names.

    An easy workaround is to create a plan in Planner and link it to the channel as a website.

    The reason it doesn't work natively in private channels is that when you assign a task to someone in a plan who is not part of the team, then they get added to the team. This would be disastrous in a private channel, and so Microsoft has to fix this before the feature can be enabled ... but as a I wrote above ... workaround is trivial.

    A "log" or "owner" channel that is only visible to owners would be useful. It only needs the posts tab, not a private sharepoint etc.

    General channel is always public, which means that identity information about the Team membership and possibly sensitive information about projects via channel names) is shared even when not desirable e.g. when separating vendors for a single project into different channels.

    Every time I delete a Team, a bug wipes out access to the Teams pane within the application, and clearing the cache is the only way to recover access. ( Access via web browser is also curtailed, so there is simply no getting around the problem. )

    Teams should never have been shipped without basic international sufficiency. This was not acceptable at Microsoft 25 years ago.

    Office has gone so far backward on international support for these basic elements!
