  1. Notify when session has expired and I need to log in again

    Often I will open Teams from the notification area only to discover my session has expired and I need to log in again. I never know how long I was signed out and unable to receive messages.

  2. Availability Schedule

    It would be great to setup our availability in teams (like they have in slack). Like we could setup our working hours so we don't receive notification outiste working hours. Right now if I do not want to receive notifications (on my phone) I need to manually set me in away.

  3. We would like the chat list to change by availability.

    We would like to see the chat order change as users become available. The most recent conversation with an available person should be at the top of the list. Unavailable users should be at bottom.

  4. delay messages for "busy" contacts

    The contacts that have set their presence as "busy" or DND should not get notified/disturbed by the messages. If someone tries to send messages to a busy contact, MS Teams should ask if the message is really critical, with options "urgent, send now", "automatically send later when the contact is available", "dont send".
    Its such a basic feature, it ought to be there

  6. create a Focus prescence that can be time boxed and a 'while you were away' summary pop-up

    We would like to be able to set our presence to Focus (to allow time to focus on an issue or task) where we would not be disturbed.

    Once the time expires, we would like the presence to resume where we were.

    And we would like to have a summary pop-up that shows what happened while we were away so every post does not have to be read.

    Additionally we would like to have a summary pop-up that tells what happened while the presence is offline, so when geting back online in the morning, there would be a summary to…

  7. Connect desktop app status indicator to activity on desktop not just teams.

    On the desktop app the status indicator changes to inactive, even if it is open and just minimized, until I maximize Teams app and click in it.

  8. Status Mis-Match and and Suggestion for Collaboration

    I faced an issue, the status of my other team members is not correctly visible...I mean user is available in Skype for Business, but shows as Away in Microsoft Team ?

    Everybody should be on MS Team to have the correct status ?

    If it is then I would suggest you to enable the integration between old Lync, SFB etc and MS Team so whoever using Microsoft Product can collaborate.

    Even I would suggest you to make this MS Team more collaborative by integrating with other top business applications use for communication (Chat/Audio/Video).

    By this the app would be easily…

  9. show it user status is on mobile

    It would be great to see a status/presence of when a user is signed in only on their mobile. It helps other users to realize if the person they are contacting may have a delay in responding because they may not see the details on their mobile (perhaps they are driving).

  10. Have a read to badge for all teammates that have read a conversation. As well as show which user is typing.

    Being able to see if a user is typing or has seen a certain conversation in a channel would be really handy. When team members don't respond I'd like to know if they at least saw the conversation to that point to know if I need to reach out to them again or not.

  11. Mention Organizational Users Regardless of Team

    I would like to be able to have a user see (tag) an occasional post within a public team that they are not a member of, or at least be able to export a post to share in another team/channel.

    It doesn't make sense for every person in our organization to be a part of every team or department, receiving constant notifications and seeing all of their channels, but there seems to be no other way to work cross departmentally on occasional issues. We do not do one off project work so creating a team for every "task" or plan…

  14. In the Android app, put Favorites at the top of the Contact list.

    It would be good to be able to sort the lists, or always put Favorites at the top.

  18. Make permissions more secure

    Make permissions more secure. Someone was able to join a private team I created. Another team owner complained about this as well.

  19. Make an easy to see group dashboard like on Skype and other apps

    On Skype and other apps you can set up groups and easily click on the group to see who is available. You don't have to manually search each individual person. Teams is not user friendly and on the PC takes up way too much space.

  20. presence indicator chat and other features

    Ideally with skype the presence indicator context dialog shows different option including chat. With Teams presence indicator is not showing it correctly first and secondly the chat option is disabled. This is a basic feature people look for to quickly launch the chat window and start a conversation from mail. Please let me know if this is in road map
