Great stuff!!

Accidently added few members to a Team's group chat, but I don't find option to remove the members. Whether the newly added members can see the old conversations? Is there any indirect way to remove members?

Is it that you can't see those members you added, or how to remove any members?

When I create a meeting in Teams, it allows me to select a room. Is it possible to select a physical room here or are we only talking a digital chatroom ? (Sorry, we cannot find any building). I created two rooms in Exchange in Office 365, but they are no

go into the team and add a new Channel, then add a notebook to that channel. A new corresponding section will automatically be created.

When trying to create a channel I get "Another Channel already has that name. Try a different one" but a channel of that name doesn't exist (See below)




What may have caused this is - I created a channel a few days ago but I spelt it wrong. I then renamed

I had this problem but I caused it myself. I created a channel then deleted it. When I tried to add it again, it said the channel already existed.

I'm having the same issue. I have deleted a channel and am trying to add it back with the same name.


I don't get prompted when typing the channel name, but after clicking

Could it be that you have a group with the same name?

I have also had some users in my organization complain about the inability to modify the chat size.  Hopefully this feature will be added soon.

Great workaround!!!

I can't find a way to increase font size in the app. Workaround for your users in the meantime: use the web client. Ctrl +/- works there.

Hi All,


I have managed to convert Office 365 groups to TEAMs, in the background what is it actually doing? And is it possibe to revert those changes made by the conversion process.

There’s still a lot of confusion around Office 365 Groups and how they work with Microsoft Teams, so I’ve partnered with the team at AvePoint to write a post about how they work together.

Is it possible to add external users to teams, and if so what limitations exist on what they can access?

Use the web version of Teams until it's resolved.

On more than 60 computers, only one has such issue. Temp solution is to use the web version.

Any update to the performance of the application would be greatly appreciated.  Very slow in it's current state.

Agree - Windows application is too laggy as it is now.

Problematic for me as well. I get hardlocks every once in a while, that I'm 90% sure is related to the Teams app. 


Windows App needs much improvement before GA.

We have created a team and added several members and every day we have to re-add them to the group. There is no indication why their access keeps getting removed. Calendar events they added are still available.

I think it requires the AzureAD Premium license, but there's an audit log for each group showing why/who added or removed users through portal.azure.com.

I work in a school district; we have a garden wall that restricts who can email younger students. When we implement Teams, is there a way to restrict the Chat feature in a similar manner?
