    Clicking on the join button in an Outlook reminder takes you to the browser to launch Teams today. The work to bypass the browser and directly launch Teams is being worked on. We’ll update when we have more details.

    depending on the source of the link (and whether or not Teams decided it's actually a hyperlink or not, but that's a separate ~rant~ issue), I get the browser step.

    it seems if I copy the link and post it into (any) Chat or Channel, I can click the link in my own message. When I rapid fire clicks, it opens a browser. When the link is posted by someone else or eg a bot, it _can_ take me to a browser.

    Why is this so inconsistent?? It working 70% of the time just makes me more frustrated with the whole thing 😠

    On one of the suggestions below, I posted my rather cumbersome process of how I join a daily meeting, with one of my "improvements" being "add Meeting to Activity Feed" - so this definitely gets a vote from me (:

    my current workflow for joining a daily recurring meeting is as follows:

    * meeting is starting, I get a notification in the bottom right corner of my screen
    * I click on the notification, get a Teams screen that shows my camera works and allows me to configure my settings
    * there's multiple buttons, I click "Close" - this closes the meeting
    * I look through the Teams/Chats/Calls and don't see the ongoing meeting I want to join
    * I click on "Calendar" in the side navigation, find the event I added ("Accepted") with Outlook, click on it, then click on the link "Join Microsoft Teams Meeting" in the event description, and get taken directly into the meeting (depending on **magic** - in some (3 out of 5) cases it still takes me to a browser)

    why this is frustrating for me:

    * when I have teams running both locally and in an RDP session, the local notification perfectly covers the one inside the RDP session, and there doesn't appear to be an easy way to "hide"/"snooze" the message
    * clicking "Join" in the notification takes me to a screen(1) first, with many options and no clear (useful) path through 
        * I am confused as I haven't _actually_ joined the meeting yet
        * also, instinctively, I click "Close" in response to this screen
    * the meeting itself is listed in Chat with its own entry, which I have pinned, but the display doesn't make it obvious
        * the display (icon, title, description) "disappear" - they're not significantly different
        * the order for Channels/Chats is different on each screen(2)

    [1] the "pre-meeting screen" also appears when the meeting isn't active and using the calendar event description link or "Join" top right in the calendar event
    * the Close button on the pre-meeting screen is in the same place as the Join button when you're on the Chat for that meeting
    * this Close button looks similar to the Join button, stands out enough to be the main option, and is the only button that feels like a CTA (Call to Action, button/link/message that grabs the user's attention)
    [2] the list of Pinned and un-pinned items follow different ordering systems
        * Pinned items seem to use the date they were pinned for ordering, not alphabetical or most recent
        * un-pinned Chat items are organised by Most Recent, whereas un-pinned Teams/Channels are organised alphabetically 

    improvements:
    * make the notification for "Meeting started" appear in the Teams Activity feed too
    * make the icon for a chat with an ongoing meeting more obvious (eg bold)
    * could change the label of the "Join" button to make it obvious there's choices to make/more buttons to click
        * eg "Start joining"
    * make the close button on the pre-meeting screen to be more distinctly different, change the location, change the text to eg "Abort"
    * change the location (more whitespace) and/or colour for the Join button on the pre-meeting screen to make it a clearer CTA
    * allow a user to easily change the order of pinned Meetings/Chats
    * bonus points - allow default settings for recurring meetings (eg always show my camera, mute my microphone etc) to skip the pre-meeting screen
    * more bonus points - overhaul the Teams UI to make CTA buttons clearer, have better ratios of text/images, less cluttered screens, better icons, improve App management and configuration etc

    In addition to the summarised suggestion above, there's a bunch of other things that could do with fixing...

    I now have a "Help" stuck in the sidebar, which isn't a team channel or the app as I still need to click "Open" to access it. no way to remove it and no options anywhere. Don;t think I pinned it so confused as to why it won't just go away....

    Had an issue with "Calendar" disappearing - when you add an app, you need to "Pin" it to make it stay put - this is un-intuitive

    When clicking on Apps, there's no easy way to filter or sort them, eg to have them mainly display Apps already used in Teams/Channels. the whole Apps thing feels like it needs a lot of work from a UI perspective, as it's not easy to manage or configure them.

    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! :-)
