  1. Lag in status symbol

    There is a lag in the status symbol (green for present, red for occupied etc) compared to Skype. Also, I miss the search for contacts under Chat.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. Associate your dial in presence tile with your app presence tile, so your webcam is brought forward when you talk

    The problem is this, in short: Our conference room audio system is a permanently installed speaker and microphone array spanning 2 rooms and is separate from my computer and requires us to DIAL IN to Teams meetings bridge to join a meeting. When I dial in to start a meeting from a wired telephone, and put in MY PIN, I need it to tie that presence to MY account reliably instead of showing 2 different meeting attendees in the meeting attendee list; one for my actual account, and one for the number I dialed in from. The reason it cannot…

  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. Incorporate time into status, i.e. "away 10 minutes"

    Similar to Skype for Business, include time with the status. For instance, "Away 10 minutes".

  13. 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.

  15. problem with teams status

    hello there, i have a question in regards to MS teams, why is my status always in red / busy? even though there are no meetings going on in my calendar, Is there an option to edit settings so that i am in control of the status?

    i would like a feature for being in control, like skype for business had.

    for example

    - sync my status with outlook CHECK OR NOT
    - set away status after XX minutes CHECK OR NOT

    shouldn't be that hard no?

    thanks,
    Gabrio

  16. Link contact groups from Outlook to Teams

    Ensure that contact groups that have been created in Outlook are visible / can be used in Teams. Now I have to re-create certain groups in teams and instead would just like to copy from Outlook

  17. Teams Status

    Among the Status options in Teams, it would be good to have “Appear Offline” , in situations when I do not wish to be contacted (just like it was before in skype for business) !

  18. No solicitar una ubicación esperada

    El reloj de fichar solicita una ubicación esperada, para poder disponer de la grabación de la ubicación del empleado al fichar .
    Sería genial que tan sólo registrara la ubicación (sea cua sea) en el momento de fichar al empezar o acabar su turno.

    Muchas gracias
