On Mac, when switching between desktops to select teams app, it wouldn't be the active window.

On Mac, If I have teams app on a different desktop than the current one and when I do cmd+tab to select the teams app, it would take me to that desktop but teams app wouldn't be the active window and further I have to click with the mouse to make it the active window (or I have to cmd+tab to another app in the same desktop as teams and one more cmd+tab to teams to make it active) is painful.

 

Kindly fix it.

Hello @rajashekar007   If you'd like to give feedback on Teams, please go to the Teams Uservoice feedback forum where the engineers can take note:  https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/

Hi @ThereseSolimeno, This is not a new feature. This is simply a bug and needs to be fixed and comes in the way of being productive.

@rajashekar007   The Uservoice site is where bugs are reported, as well as new feature requests.

@rajashekar007 
Hi i am facing the same issue and im sure thousands more are.

This bug has been an extremely big hindrance to productivity. Since Teams is probably the most used app in a day, this bug is wasting at least half hour of my extremely demanding workday, not to mention the awkwardness i have to face during the meetings when im presenting something.

@ThereseSolimeno Please help.
