Design bug on Microsoft Teams when viewing images from chat

Super Contributor



Have you noticed the design bug in Teams, when you are opening an image on the meeting's chat. The [Close] button on the client locates on the same place where meeting [Leave] button is. I have done, and my colleagues has left from meetings multiple times when computer has not working enough fast for the [close] button. See the pictures.


Here you can see where is the Leave button on the meeting:

When open the image from chat, you most likely can see where the [Close] appears.

@Petri X this is great feedback. Thanks Petri X for bringing this up. We are aware of this and are looking to improve it. Thanks!

Really, this sounds positive ! :D

This is a grievous design flaw. As a school teacher, I am constantly leaving my classroom because of this easily fixed issue. If the team has been aware of this for so long, why no update addressing it? User-centered design should be your mandate when there are competitive options.

Any update on this? It has been over a year since this was reported.


I believe you should ask this from @Emily Kirby instead of CHenggeler.

But at least, on my Teams this is still active issue.
