    Issues with Assignments

    Anyone else having issues with the Assignments application within teams? It seems to be isolated to "new teams", users are having issues with their assignments, saying this bot is blocked by your administrator. ... But flip to old teams it's all gravy.

    Conference Room Setup Inquiry

    We're looking to outfit a small office's conference room with a TV and other devices so they can hold meetings in there, and include other folks not in the office. We already have the TV, so at this point I'm just looking for what devices are actually required here. There will be an average of 3-5 people in the conference room meetings. There are a multitude of devices out there with some high price points I think would be overkill for what we actually need. I'm looking for a camera to go above the TV, a mic on the table, and a touchscreen display for joining/ending meetings and whatnot.

    I'm already familiar with the licensing requirements and other related things. Mostly looking to see what set ups for small offices you all have had success with.

    Enable Places preview help

    I'm trying to enable the places preview to a mail enabled security group and keep getting an error. I can't find documentation on why I'm getting the error. Yes, I have required permissions.

    I get connected to Places then the directions say to enter this:

    Set-PlacesSettings -Collection Places -EnablePlacesWebApp ‘Default:false,OID:<OID of Mail-enabled Security Group>@<Tenant ID>:true’

    So mine looks something like, of course I changed the user and tenant ID:

    Set-PlacesSettings -Collection Places -EnablePlacesWebApp ‘Default:false,OID:1x1x1x1x1-2x2x2x2-3x3x3x3-4x4x4-5x5x5x5x@0x0x0x-9x9x9x-8x8x8x8-7x7x7x-6x6x6xbc:true’

    When I run it I get:

    Set-PlacesSettings: Cannot convert 'System.Object[]' to the type 'System.String' required by parameter 'EnablePlacesWebApp'. Specified method is not supported.

    I take Default:false out and I get:

    Set-PlacesSettings: Status(StatusCode="InvalidArgument", Detail="There is no scope for the required scope id Default.")

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Having problem signing in to Microsoft Teams on Poly x30 and Poly TC8

    Keep getting the error message "Your current license is not supported on this device. Ask your IT administrator for details" the Poly X30 and the TC8 are both on the same subnet. We have a Microsoft Teams Pro account. Not sure what could be the problem. Tried unpairing the devices and signing in to Teams on both https://microsoft.com/devicelogin and on the device itself. Any help would be great!

    Thanks!!

    How to create a chat bot that shows a timeline with screenshots?

    I want to use a chat bot in my research studies. The aim is to be a planning buddy for time management of PhD work. It will help with daily, weekly and termly planning routines. I have a good idea what it needs to do. Here is list: running in Teams; asking set questions rather than listening or other more complex stuff; displaying some of the answers people give back to them; the only complex thing is a "timeline" feature where it captures screenshots every 2-3 minutes and puts them on a timeline so that people can scroll and see what they did during the previous day and record the tasks that were done... and then the screenshots get deleted after 3 days of storage locally. I want this timeline inside the bot when it presents the question. It has to be GDPR compliant. I imagine for someone experienced that won't take too long given I have a list of questions and the requirements for this timeline. How big of a job is that? How much would someone charge for this? Where do I advertise it?

    ManicTime is an app that has the timeline feature I am talking about but I can't move it to Teams Bot. Slack can be used to build easy bots but I can't do it in Teams as it seems more complicated and I absolutely hate coding.

    How to get the list of all persons in a meeting to show up like it used to

    Currently in meetings each person shows up on the right hand side in a box that's about 1" x 2". That's fine if people had cams on, but almost no one does of course. If I click on the button to show participants it shows the list of all users, like I want, but it STILL shows the other view that takes up real estate.

    How to get rid of the annoying popup when sharing my screen?

    How to open teams link in new teams

    So, my company moved to new teams. Both original and new are installed on the computer. And it should be noted that I can't change most settings and uninstall anything on this system.

    For most meetings it's fine. But there's a particular person, from outside the organisation, who sends me an invite and when I click open it gives me the option of opening in browser or in teams. If I choose teams, it opens old teams. All other links open in new teams.

    Is there any way I can use the hyperlink they send me to open in new teams?

    Transcript in other languages; can we lock the "Spoken Language"?

    I work at a global org and occasionally have very large meetings with colleagues across the world. We like to encourage users to change the transcripts to their own language. We find that often attendees are confused and change the spoken language and the caption language which results in a pop-up announcing that they changed the spoken language. With large meetings we have a lot of pop-ups during the meeting.

    Is there a way to lock the spoken language to English (in our case) and allow attendees to change only the language of the captions? Side question, are these pop-ups indeed from attendees changing the spoken language, or is it something Teams is doing automatically?

    What’s the best way to create an EV charger usage app/dashboard?

    My company currently allows employees to use the 4 EV chargers for free. But the way it’s done is very poor. We currently have to message on teams to get added to a waiting list by the reception. He also then messages people directly and then they pick up the card to go charge. There’s a 3hr “rule” so that people all get to charge. Is it best to create a Teams app, if so, what would you suggest? Or is it best to show it on a PowerBI timed dashboard?

    How can I set up a meeting so a user can allow two participants to be able to turn on their camera and microphone.

    A user has asked me to set up a meeting for a tribunal. The user wants to have control of two specific users who will be able to turn their camera and microphone on and he wants all the other participants microphones and cameras to be restricted so the only thing they can do is listen during the meeting.

    New Teams is the same as the Old Teams?

    I can not for the life of me figure out what the difference between "Classic Teams" and the "New Teams"... When switching between the two, they are more or less identical as far as I can tell.

    I have been bugged by the "Try the New teams" message sooo many times, because sometimes it is the old teams being opened by default... Why would Microsoft go through the struggle of having these two versions "live" at the same time, instead of just implementing a normal update to teams?

    How to disable Teams on startup?

    I do it pretty often, and go through both the settings and the task manager, but it keeps coming back, most often after updates or else. Is there a way to somehow permanently disable it on startup?

    Has anyone seen the error message "We've turned off your camera. The video filter in use caused your video to stop working."

    As the title says.

    I have a user (Surface Laptop 4) using the Business App version of teams. Whenever I turn the camera on it flicks straight off and gives the error message. I've turned off any background filters BTW.

    It works perfectly on the 'web' version of TEAMS, just not on the app. I've reinstalled office & the TEAMS app and no joy. I've never seen this before.

    Thanks in advance!

    Creating a bot that attaches PDF’s but running into size issues, not sure how to navigate

    So I’m creating a Teams bot that will forward our incoming faxes via an API that our fax website has. However, i’m running into size issues trying to attach PDF’s in the bot responses as the messages are > ~250000(?) bytes. Does anyone know a way to navigate this? I have tried to create a download link instead, but the API requires basic auth and so I cannot create a link without middleware. I would be thrilled to find a way to simply attach the PDF’s. Most of them are 2-10mb and i don’t understand why Teams would have such a small size limit.

    External calling using teams on logi Tap

    Wanting suggestions on the best way to enable external calling via teams on a Logi Tap.

    Recently upgraded a few boardrooms with Logi Rally + Tap using teams client. I need the ability to make ad-hoc external calls to landlines and or mobiles (Australia) as they want to remove the current deskphones and conference VoIP devices.

    Would also be preferable to have the number mask display as our internal landline prefix.

    Any advice on licensing and call plans is appreciated.

    Adding a photo/file in a post or announcement via Teams mobile app does not upload the file into Files/documents

    When adding an image to a post or announcement from the teams mobile app, it doesn’t add it to the Files/documents of the related SharePoint site. I cannot find it anywhere. I can’t find an answer in documentation either. Does anyone know?

    Can you search for Photos in a chat?

    Thank you in advance for taking the time out to help. Much appreciated.

    I have done research online with no real help. I keep seeing an option to click on Photos in the chat header which I'm just not seeing anywhere.

    Is this even a feature? Like in Facebook Messages, you can search through all Media (photos and videos, etc)

    I can't find a concrete "recent" answer to this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    "Present in Teams" option in PowerPoint not working for MSTR on Android devices.

    When someone uses the "Present in Teams" option in PowerPoint it is causing this error on our Teams Rooms devices.

    "Can't load PowerPoint. To view this content, go to your app store and get the latest version of Android WebView."

    Doing a screenshare from Teams itself is our current workaround.

    It is happening on both our Poly and Neat Board devices. Teams admin center shows all of our devices as being up to date. What's also annoying is that you cannot dismiss the error on non-touch devices such as our Poly G7500 paired with a TC8 panel unless you leave and rejoin the meeting.

    Curious if anyone else is experiencing this. Teams app version on all devices is 1449/1.0.96.2024042606

    Microsoft Teams Room Pro Management Portal - False positive tickets

    I have a strange issue I've not seen before. I just deployed a number of MTRs across a new office for a client and i'm periodically seeing random rooms get critical "cannot sign into teams" tickets in the MTRPMP. When i go to investigate, the room wakes up and is signed in. There is no pattern or frequent offenders, there are just random rooms that generate a critical ticket that just auto-resolves itself when someone enters the room.

    I obviously cannot tell the IT staff that this is something to ignore once I turn over the monitoring to their BAU staff. I'm curious if anyone else has had this issue in the past or is it a network configuration issue?

    New Planner "Assigned to Me" somehow worse

    In my list of tasks, all I have access to is the PLAN name, but no way to see the source group. Even when I open the task, there is no way to see what group the plan is coming from. So I just have a list of similar tasks, with no way to know what they belong to. 😂

    How tf did ms spend so much time on a new experience and manage to give me LESS visibility into what tasks I'm overseeing?

    But if I'm missing something, please LMK.
