Who could have ever guessed that naming different software the same thing would ever come back to bite them

[-] NoLifeKing@ani.social 26 points 2 months ago

I mean how about just not installing 5 different versions and just keeping the Theams new, its so fucking annoying in all regards.

[-] rambaroo@lemmynsfw.com 4 points 2 months ago

Because they knew the new teams is a buggy piece of shit and people would need an alternative

[-] wathek@discuss.online 18 points 2 months ago

Microsoft does this painfully often

[-] Zworf@beehaw.org 23 points 2 months ago

And they are doing it again. CoPilot for Windows, CoPilot for Github, CoPilot for sales, CoPilot for Microsoft 365, Bing CoPilot. All different products with different properties.

[-] termus@beehaw.org 9 points 2 months ago

I think their first use of CoPilot was for pairing two Xbox controllers together for accessibility. Instead of making up something new, they just co-opt it from that and now it's going to be impossible to google Copilot for Xbox Controllers issues.

Oh well, glad I made the switch to Linux.

[-] emptiestplace@lemmy.ml 8 points 2 months ago

And they all fucking suck.

[-] Rexios@lemm.ee 7 points 2 months ago

GitHub copilot does not suck. It’s just not magic. I’m never going back to writing boilerplate and heavily patterned code myself thank you very much.

[-] tias@discuss.tchncs.de 5 points 2 months ago

But but... branding!

[-] Jesus_666@feddit.de 70 points 2 months ago

Soon they will launch their new product, Copy of New Teams Classic (work or school) (2).

[-] Stiltonfondu@sopuli.xyz 44 points 2 months ago

Is it like Team Fortress Classic (work or school)?

someone spycheck already, dammit!


[-] Aussiemandeus@aussie.zone 40 points 2 months ago

It's been driving me mad on my work laptop,

I cant uninstall the old version and every time i open it it tries to push me to the new version

[-] NoLifeKing@ani.social 18 points 2 months ago

For me i open the new and it asks me to go back to the old version...

Just open the fucking thing shitdos!

[-] Luvon@beehaw.org 10 points 2 months ago

I had this as well, it’s because the pinned version will still be pointing to the old version even after you agreed to upgrade.

You have to unpin the old version, and pin the new version.

Reallllly stupid upgrade from them.

[-] Damage@slrpnk.net 5 points 2 months ago

But it starts automatically at boot! (And opens the last used chat on the screen for everyone to see, thank you teams.)

[-] NoLifeKing@ani.social 5 points 2 months ago

That can be turned of in the settings

[-] NoLifeKing@ani.social 3 points 2 months ago

Oh god, thanks.

[-] EonNShadow@pawb.social 12 points 2 months ago

Better yet - mine keeps trying to push me to the new version, but the (new) version is blocked in my org.

So every time it tries to open, I get a "teams (new) is blocked in your organization." And I have to fight it to go back to the old version.

[-] Midnitte@beehaw.org 9 points 2 months ago

Did you know that Outlook has a mobile app? Click here to install....

[-] Aussiemandeus@aussie.zone 4 points 2 months ago
[-] Midnitte@beehaw.org 2 points 2 months ago

Especially when it knows you have it installed because you're forced to use the Outlook 2fa function on your phone

[-] Afghaniscran@feddit.uk 10 points 2 months ago

I just pinned the new version to the taskbar so I don't have to mess around with the old version diversion

[-] ainz@lemmy.dbzer0.com 2 points 2 months ago

My admin hasn't enabled the new version so I just have the old version, if I accidentally click on the new one the entire pc slogs for 5 mins before asking me to use the older version.

[-] Kir@feddit.it 34 points 2 months ago

For every new release they hire the best UX designers and developers in order to find ways of make your experience worse.

[-] termus@beehaw.org 7 points 2 months ago

"Well we let half the team go after the last version launched, so you'll have to make due with what they left behind."

[-] otter@lemmy.ca 29 points 2 months ago

Reminds me of Skype. It seemed like I always had the wrong version installed, and I couldn't get rid of the broken ones

Microsoft Teams Blood Gulch

[-] Monument@lemmy.sdf.org 6 points 2 months ago

Ooh. I made a New/Classic/Diet/Zero joke with my colleagues last week.
I wish I’d thought of Halo, rather than soda. Your version is much better.

[-] Admetus@sopuli.xyz 2 points 2 months ago

Don't forget original taste!

[-] PatheticGroundThing@beehaw.org 16 points 2 months ago

As if someone took the concept of spaghetti code and applied it to an entire company.

[-] hlqxz@lemmy.ml 15 points 2 months ago

Microsoft should save everyone some headache and delete Teams. These stupid fucks keep giving me an alert saying to export all my saved messages to a csv file because this cunt of a company decided to not carry forward that feature in newer apps.

[-] hlqxz@lemmy.ml 5 points 2 months ago


[-] Capricorn@lemmy.today 13 points 2 months ago

Remember, it's Microsoft... it can't be normal

[-] rammer@sopuli.xyz 11 points 2 months ago

It's like they never learn. I remember WAY back when Windows NT was new. The NT in Windows NT stands for New Technology.

[-] Railison@aussie.zone 9 points 2 months ago

ELI5 the difference between the white badged Teams and the dark badged Teams

[-] piracysails@lemm.ee 9 points 2 months ago

I believe the white one is for personal use.

The (new) dark is the newest teams for organizations.

The (classic) dark is the old teams for organizations.

[-] blindsight@beehaw.org 3 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

Not sure if it's just my device, but I can't drag & drop files into the new Teams for organizations, so I'm still using classic for organizations.

It's ridiculous, and now I need to click through saying "no" to the new version every time I start it.

[-] TemporalSoup@beehaw.org 6 points 2 months ago

I hate that I know this, but new Teams is based on WebView2 (Microsoft's version of electron), and dragging and dropping files is semi-broken for ALL WebView2 apps 🙃

(The only other WV2 app I know of is New Outlook)

[-] filcuk@lemmy.zip 3 points 2 months ago

Bunch of features we're broken for me too, such as group chat tab page embed, but they seem to be fixing them slowly.

[-] vox@sopuli.xyz 7 points 2 months ago

especially annoying when your school keeps switching between the two.
I joined a meeting on New Teams once, but by the end of it i got a popup saying that access to new teams has been blocked and you need to switch to classic teams.
the next day, we were forced to migrate to new teams again.
a week ago, access to new teams got blocked again, and i had to redownload teams (classic)
