  4. status goes away when teams is minimised

    Teams status changes to yellow (busy) when Teams is not the active window.

    For example, if I'm in a web browser, the teams app changes status to Yellow (busy).

  5. Setting to adjust length of time before "away" status

    I would like the option to select how long I want to be inactive before Teams auto changes from "available" to "away". In my organization, some computers can go unlocked but inactive all night and Teams will show them as "available". While on mine, I might be in excel or another program but on my computer, and Team will show me as "away" after just minutes.

  7. Disable pop-up notifications in Do Not Disturb mode

    I would like to disable pop-up notifications while I set Do Not Disturb mode, so that I can focus better without distraction from other users, exactly as it used to be with S4B.

  8. Having the app in background or on another monitor doesn't mean I am away

    If I have the teams app in the background or on another monitor does not mean I am away. Even if i don't move the mouse for some time does not usually mean I am away. Maybe I do other things, but still sitting at my desk and working.
    The status should only change to "away" if i lock my computer, because then I am really "away". Maybe there should be a way to configure the time after when the status changes and one of these options should be "only when locking the computer".

  9. WORK FROM HOME status icon

    This proposition is to simply add an extra status icon (top left of the portrait) to signify WFH. (like a Home pin)

    Given that so many people in the world are working from home, knowing that some are from home and some are from office would be great!

  10. Presence description next the presence icon of the contact photo

    Currently in most of the scenarios in Microsoft Teams Client (Desktop & Mobile) we must open the contact card from a user (click / hover over) to see the exact state of his presence. (Red has several meanings) This is quite time consuming if you need to find someone how is not in call for example. It would greate to see the description (Busy, in a call, in a conference call etc.) right next to the presence icon of the contact photo like there was in Skype for Business

  11. Presence bubbles don't appear next to the name in the To, CC, and BCC fields

    The outlook status is sync with Teams status, however presence bubbles don't appear next to the name in the To, CC, and BCC fields on Outlook. The presence bubbles did appear in the past but after an update this option was removed. Is it possible to bring it back? Thank you

  12. Set presence via api

    Unfortunately https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/39651298-microsoft-graph-presence-api was closed despite 1618 votes mostly requesting the ability to SET the presence via api. Can that one be reopened as not fixed (to keep all the previous comments and votes) and to have a supported api function that allows the setting of Teams Presence. It is technically possible to do it already via a completely undocumented api although a token needs to be obtained to authorise the api.

  13. Make user presence controllable for internal users and external users

    It would be great if we can have Presence privacy mode feature like Skype for Business.
    Furthermore, internal users and external user are controlled at the same time in the Presence privacy mode.
    Therefore, a function to control the presence separately for those users would be appreciated.

  14. Team address books (and company-wide address book)

    The lifeblood of Microsoft teams is the people that that make up those teams and generate the content within teams. As of now, there is now basic way of listing who those people are within teams.

    It would be really great if each team had it's own "people" tab where it would be an address book of all the people who make up that team. Without it, how does a general user even know with whom they are speaking?

    Furthermore, it would be good to have the option for a company-wide "people" tab in the left menu, which would function…

  15. audio + name pronunciation

    I have many team members who have politely changed their names to make it easier for teammates to pronounce them. To support a more inclusive environment, I'd like an audio recording option to be available so that team members can record the correct pronunciation of their names and these audio files are available to play for any team member who needs a refresher on pronunciation.

  16. Allow setting idle time to avoid constantly appearing "Away"

    Now that we are working from home, we need to appear as available all time, or at least for more time that 3 minutes even when you are not actively using the computer.

  17. Custom Status Message API

    One can currently set a custom status message for when someone sends you a chat or mentions you in a channel. Please provide an administrative control to disable this by policy. And/or allow for the custom status message to be cleared/set by PowerShell or Graph API.

    Use case: In the EDU sector students can (and do) abuse this with inappropriate status messages. Currently, the only control is an Acceptable Use Policy, and to clear it requires taking control of the account and manually clearing it.

  18. Status based on Skype Status

    If we are sharing something on Skype and the Skype status shows up as busy, the Teams status should also show up as busy automatically. Can this be done?

  19. Integrate status message and status

    When I set a status message, I also want to pick a status to go with it (available, busy, away, etc.). But that's not currently an option in the UI.

    "Clear status message after" should apply to this status. When the time is up, the status should go back to what it would have been.

  20. オフラインを非表示に制御するポリシー Disable offline status

    管理者ユーザーの制御で、全ユーザーに対し、オフライン プレゼンスが利用できないようにする設定の実現を希望します。

    To avoid using offline status by users by themselves, I would like to have an admin control to disable the Offline status, so that users can’t change their status to offline.
