      Thanks for another great piece, Peter!

      I think the reason there is confusion over Tasks/Todo and Tasks/Planner is that Microsoft combined ToDo and Planner into the Tasks app a little while ago.

      Really don’t understand why there’s no “Paste as PlainText” in Teams…
      Sure there’s the Remove Formatting button, but even that doesn’t work properly!

    • #2393632

      Good point.  There’s no Paste as plain text option in the chat/messaging window.

      Where do you have trouble with ‘Clear all formatting’?  Which Teams app?  I just did some quick tests and it worked OK.

      Of course the workaround is to Paste as plain text into Word (online or app) the copy from there.  Word editor within Teams for Windows does have a Paste as plain text option.

        It’s either when pasting from an Excel table, or Pasting code from Visual Studio. (Can’t remember atm as I’m not on my work machine). This is on Teams Desktop, btw. The Clear Formatting just wouldn’t clear everything and revert it back to the default format plaintext, as it does in other apps. I’m aware the “Code” option exists, but whenever I’m pasting into Teams it’s generally just Text.

        I’ve resorted to pasting to Notepad first, then into teams. Still arsey though. Would love a right-click Paste as Plaintext option.

      Avoid MS Team at all cost. It is very unstable. It crashes very often. It does not have screen annotation. It use spy-telemetry data to gather info on business users and exploit it.

      • #2393792

        Do you have evidence of of Microsoft gathering data on businesses and “exploiting it”?  Provide facts please otherwise this is pure speculation.

      Can Teams be uninstalled.

    • #2393968

      Yes, Teams software can be uninstalled on any computer. That doesn’t remove the Team data.

      If you mean can a Team be deleted, yes.  Anything saved in Teams can be deleted by an admin … a plug-in, tab, channel or entire Team.
