    I just posted a complaint on Data Validation List - and just found this post!

    Here is my issue and workaround (though not ideal, it does work):

    Excel error in Teams: Entering "Data Validation List" item in a cell
    So we have an Excel tab in a Teams Channel. The Excel tab is our company Invoice Tracker that connects 5 worksheets together: So a worksheet for Client details, Client Invoices, Invoice Details, Invoice Print Sheet and an Invoice Receipt Print Sheet.

    As you can imagine, things like client details, addresses, invoice details and amounts etc are automatically transferred across the workbooks.

    It works fine, except for one issue where entering a "Data Validation List" item in a cell creates an error and the inputted item is not recognised as valid. (The item is a job number combined with the client name).

    As a result, this item is not transferred to other cells in other workbooks.

    The error can only be seen if you open the Excel file in the Desktop app. Here the error can be seen; identified by the triangle in the top right corner of the affected cell.

    On investigation, it's an input error where a space is added before the first character of the List item which renders the item invalid. So for example: a space is added before the "4" of "4321 - Jones".

    This error can only be corrected in the Desktop App, by selecting the item from the Data Validation List.

    Selecting the item from the Data Validation List in Teams, adds the extra space character which messes up the functionality of the Invoice Tracker.

    Hope this makes sense!!!

    However, I think messages marked as URGENT should NOT be disabled or muted.

    This is needed, particularly as we want more engagement with Teams and using chat channels as our main form of communication.

    At the same time, I think more notification options should be available for important and urgent messages. So for example, more flexibility on automatic notifications to all recipients, not just for 20 minutes, to ensure every team member gets the message/notification.
    Maybe timed notifications?

    It's also strange that an URGENT message cannot be set in a group/channel chat - only one to one chats!

    As an addendum, I use Teams in Dark Mode, and particularly in the Conversation page, the UI is a little too minimal or basic.

    For example, the Channel header (where you would have the Channel name, POSTS, FILES, etc) has the same dark colour as the main Conversation area.

    Likewise, the area at the bottom with the NEW CONVERSATION button has the same area colour as the main Conversation area.

    I think this is why a lot of people click NEW Conversation by accident. There's not enough visual separation. Maybe try difference shades of dar, or use a line to demarcate different sections?

    The use of colour is a little stark and basic.

    I appreciate the NEW CONVERSATION button at the bottom. This is a good change.

    However, we find the REPLY indicator for each conversation a little too obscure. It shouldn't be a button, but needs to be a little bit more prominent.

    Likewise, expanding a conversation is done by clicking small purple text that says something like "22 replies from you, Jimmy, Anna etc". Our users find this, like the reply function, a little confusing. Not sure how to improve the visibility.

    'Expand conversation' might make more sense, but I appreciate how it lists who has contributed to a conversation. This is useful. Maybe add both:

    EXPAND CONVERSATION: 22 replies from you, Jimmy etc

    We really need this feature for our design team meetings as well as client meetings.

    The ability to click the FILE tab in a channel, open up a file (say a pdf drawing) then sharing the screen with clients and being able to sketch on it would be ideal.

    There are options elsewhere to adjust camera settings, HOWEVER, when going into a scheduled meeting or when you are meeting up with a contact, there is no option available to change camera settings, see whether the camera angle is ok etc.

    It's just not consistent.

    Basically, in ANY situation going into a video meeting, whether you are the first entering the meeting, responding to a meeting request or entering a scheduled meeting, the SETTINGS option should be available.

    At the moment it's just inconsistent. I believe being the first person to enter a scheduled meeting you have the time to make your camera adjustments, in other situations, settings are not available.

    In my own case, I use my DSLR as the webcam rather than the in-built monitor webcam. However I do physically disconnect my camera to take photos! So when I re-connect, I do need to see whether the camera is framed/zoomed in on me correctly!

    With the new pop-up chat windows and when you eventually implement pop-up video windows, please allow for the option to have these 'always on top', i.e. just like the built-in Calculator App in Windows 10.

    For scheduled Meetings, like a daily group meet-up, the scheduled meeting needs to show up in the relevant channel and also as a pop up, with a 'join' button.

    We've just moved our practice on to Teams from having no work-from-home experience and the process of getting people to join a schedule meeting is not intuitive at all. What happens is that around the meeting time, say 9am, some users create they're own ad hoc meetings, so it's a job getting people to leave and re-join the correct scheduled meeting.

    Our users don't seem to check their calendars to go into the meetings, they are in the Teams chat channels by default.

    It would be good to have the Join Meeting box in the channel to open up in the Chat, say a few minute before, or even give the option to make the Join Meeting box user definable.

    If a meeting is scheduled on a reoccurring basis, say everyday at 10am, then it would be good if an automated message with a join link/button pops up at the required time in the Team Chat.
