  4. Move cursor to text box upon clicking "Create a new contact group" or "Add a contact to this group"

    When I try to Create a new contact group, or add a contact to a contact group, i generally expect to click that option, then immediately type in the name. Instead, I then need to click inside the text box before typing. This is a bit annoying since I'm trying to add a bunch of contacts to various groups. I'm working in the Windows 10 application

  5. Improvements NEEDED for "Contacts"

    For the "Contacts" in the "Chat" tab. Have ability like S4B to add Distribution groups. Also have ability to start a group chat from these groups, same as S4B. You don't always need a "Team" room for a quick group chat.
    Also need ability to move and sort these groups manually. Currently no way to sort manually, it does it automatic alphabetically.
    Every time you leave the "Contacts" in "Chat" and return all the groups are expanded. These should not auto expand, they should stay minimized until the user expands them manually when needed.

  6. Incorrect status in teams

    We have noticed that our Teams statuses are consistently incorrect. Even when some team members are active in Teams they are shown as "away" or "offline". For example, although I can see that my status is "active", my colleagues see my status as "offline".

    Can you please fix this bug?

    Hi — My apologies for the delay in updating this item. We rolled out a fix a year ago for a specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you were still active on the device. We thought this had fixed the “incorrect status” issue. From comments below, it sounds like people are still seeing issues.

    If you are still having issues, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with device info and detailed repro steps to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks all!

  7. Display presence in Outlook with Teams without using Skype for Business

    Currently, Skype for Business client is required to display the user's presence information in Outlook.
    I would like to be able to display presence in Outlook with only Teams without using Skype for Business client.

  8. Status

    Teams shows in default as away after 3 minutes of idle time. It should be given access to the user to set his own time.

  9. Allow External Federated Users to be added to Contact List

    Require the ability to add external federated contacts to the Contacts list under the Chat section of Teams.

    At the moment, it is only possible to add internal users or guest accounts.

    Key requirement for allowing communication with federated partners as is available with Skype for Business.

  11. Badges or Icons that visually indicate a team owner

    In large groups, users often need to quickly identify who is an owner. Presently, a user must go into the settings then "manage teams." I propose the use of "badges" or "icons" adjacent or partially covering their picture. This would provide a quick visual indicator of who is an owner. This idea could be further adapted to provide indicators of key contributers, subject matter experts, etc. The list of custimizable badges could be limitless.

  12. Skype for Business Functionality missing in Teams

    As a consultant I am constantly interacting with people in other organisations, especially video calls with screen sharing. Recent auto upgrade to Teams from Skype for Business has reduced my functionality not increased it.

  14. Keep showing Outlook presence even when I switched to external tenant which I’ve been invited as a guest

    Currently you can’t see the right presence on Outlook when you switch your Teams tenant to the external tenant which you’ve been invited to as a guest, and Presence unknown will be shown in Outlook. It would be great if Outlook could show the correct status even when switching account in Teams to the guest account.

  15. Multiple users editing in Excel & Word

    When multiple users open excel via teams, while working and another user filter then the excel version I am working on also filters.
    In Google Sheets all users work on there own sheet but see other user initials but nothing happens when other users filter the sheet.

  16. Provide the ability to bulk add contact information for chat in Microsoft Teams

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Teams のチャットの連絡先を一括で登録したい

    Provide the ability to bulk add contact information for chat in Microsoft Teams
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在の Teams の機能では、チャットの連絡先に一人ずつメンバーを追加することはできるが、個々で操作をする必要があるため、手間がかかる。
    そのため、Office 365 で作成したグループのメンバーを一括で追加する機能や管理者が連絡先を一元管理する機能を要望します。

    It takes time and effort to add members to chat contact information one by one.

    For improvement of usability, provide the ability to bulk add multiple members in a group created in Office 365. Or allow admins to manage contact information centrally.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  18. 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…

  19. Archive users who are deleted so chats with them do not disappear

    I tried pulling up an old conversation with important information between me and a team member who left. Those chats completely disappear. That's access to important information I'll never have just because that user is no longer in teams. Slack doesn't do this. You always have all of the data regardless of whether or not that person is no longer on your team.

  20. Users outside the organization can view status messages

    Status messages should be implemented with the ability to set the scope of display, such as within an organization or a team
