Hello Guys

 

I have installed the Microsoft Teams Preview in the Surface Hub. However, there is no app shortcut of the Microsoft Teams. You need to launch it via Microsoft Store.

 

Is there any workaround for this issue? Thanks in advance

Hi Jon

 

Below are instructions taken from the Surface Hub Quick Reference Guide from Microsoft. See if this helps?

The full guide can be found here.

 

Hope that does the job!

 

Cheers

Damien

Hi Damien,

 

Thanks for the quick guide however there is no Teams shortcut in Start > All Apps

 

 

 

 

Hi Jon

You may have tried this but I'll confirm with you, have you tried to uninstall and reinstall to see if the shortcut returns?

Are you the admin of the device?

Cheers
Damien

Hi Damien,

 

Tried reinstalling it for several times but no success. Same scenario in my other hubs.

 

Is it worth it to open a case with Microsoft Support?

I would suggest you do. From my understanding, it should have put the shortcut into the menu for you to launch.

Unless someone else here knows what the issue is, it may be worth logging the ticket.

Good luck and please do let us know how you go so others with the same issue can learn the solution too!

Cheers
Damien

Hi guys,

 

i can confirm this. We also have no shortcut and I can't even start the application from store.

If we open the app the Microsoft Teams start picture appears and after that the applications disapperars.

 

Thanks for any help.

Daniel

We faced the same issue:

 

Workarounds

 

To launch the Microsoft Teams on Surface Hub,

1. Go to Surface Apps Store, type "Teams" in the search box > press "search". When the Teams icon shows up, tap on it and click "Launch" -- that's how you launch the Microsoft Teams on the Surface Hub at this moment. 

 

2. Regarding with the Microsoft Teams is not launching,

Go to Surface Apps Store, uninstall currently installed Microsoft Teams, and restart the Surface Hub. And install it again, launch it from Apps Store. It should launch. 

 

Any word from Microsoft on why that's happening? E.g. App is in preview so it's not working right?

Cheers
Damien

Microsoft Support have escalated the case to their Engineering Team for further troubleshooting 

 

I will keep you posted

It's in preview, so, usually all we have to do is "be a little patient" :D and workarounds. But of course, we can escalate this to Microsoft too.

Time will tell!
