It's been two days that I have been trying to schedule new meetings for my classes in Microsoft Teams and whenever I am trying to set specific start time and end time for every meeting, the time changes by default to every 30 mins. For instance, when I want to enter manually 09:10 a.m. for start time, it changes into 09:00 a.m. Also, when I try to set the end time 45 mins after start time, it changes automatically to 30 mins after start time. This is a new problem for me. I had never faced that before, until two days ago.

 

What should I do to fix this problem?

@gmdoun Hi, same behavior in the desktop app and Teams online? https://teams.microsoft.com 

Any difference if you sign out manually to refresh settings? (top right corner). Are you using the Outlook client? If so, would you mind verifying the behavior when scheduling a Teams meeting using the Teams Outlook add-in located in the menu bar.

@ChristianBergstrom Yes same behaviour both the app and the browser.

When I use the Outlook add-in, I am allowed to schedule a meeting any date and time I want, but when I try to edit the time schedule via Teams calendar, the behaviour is eaxactly the same as before. I still cannot edit start and end times manually. Might that be a bug or sth?

@gmdoun Hi, first time I've heard of this issue. I thought you would reply saying "all good online" but apparently not :) Perhaps you need to open a support ticket for this. Are you an admin? Otherwise ask IT to assist with that. Let me know how it goes!

@gmdoun I am having the EXACT same issue. It was fine on Friday and today I cannot set a specific time, it reverts to a 30min interval. Outlook lets me, but neither the online nor the desktop application let me.

@MHamble Hi, must be related to a recent service degradation. Try opening a support ticket with Microsoft.

@gmdoun 

Here is the workaround I found:

Type a "Exact 12-hr format" time

 

eg, I want to schedule a meeting at 13:33

"1333" or "13:33" doesn't work .  It only accept "13:33 PM"   (a space before PM)

@HW_Leung  It worked! I always typed it exact, but without a space between the time and the AM/PM.
