    It would be great if the display was just the first few characters, and ellipse, and then the last few characters - with a hover of showing the full url. e.g. microsoft.com/docs/...awesome.aspx

    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    I really like the suggestion of creating an alarm on a message, so you come back to it. I’ve passed this on to our engineering team.

    Meanwhile, here’s another feature you can utilize for the same purpose — use our “bookmark” button, which is in the upper right corner of every message. This will save that message or thread directly to your profile. To access your saved messages, just click your face in the upper left corner of the product. You’ll see a tab in the left rail that says “Saved.” This is like a list of little reminders.

    Hope that helps! :-)

    The "open application in background" setting does not load it to the system tray only. It still loads as a window. The startup script is:

    C:\Users\****\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams\Update.exe --processStart "Teams.exe" --process-start-args "--system-initiated"

    Could it be that it starts with Update.exe? I've tried to change it to current/teams.exe and current/squirrel.exe to no effect.

    Also, I noticed that the settings.json file does not allow "true" in disableBackgrounding. I changed it manually, opened teams and it changed it back to false. Event when I change the textbox.
    C:\Users\*****AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\settings.json

    desktop-config.json is set to:
    "appPreferenceSettings": {
    "openAsHidden": true,
    "openAtLogin": true,
    "registerAsIMProvider": true,
    "runningOnClose": true
    },

    per https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Minimize-to-system-tray/m-p/320133/highlight/true#M24014

    Otherwise, great program. This is a minor bug if you ask me. People complaining about conference room screens showing information seem to forget to boot their machines before going to a meeting.
