  1. Show "urgent interruptions only" to Priority Access colleagues instead of DND status

    Skype for business showed "urgent interruptions only" to people added to my workgroup but DND to everyone else, Teams needs to the do the same for Priority Access people

  2. status

    Show more details in Busy Status beside the name as was the case with Skype for Business.
    1. on a call
    2. in a meeting
    3. in a conference call
    Failure to show the detailed status beside the name, will give the impression that the person might by busy but still available for quick questions. Instead of providing the message sender the option to be courteous when the receiver status clearly shows on a conference call without having to hover over the name.

  3. 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.

  5. Background/foreground

    Hi
    Now that we can get a nice background - I would really appreciate getting filters for foreground, ie myself, like snapchat filters, and preferably selection of clothing, hair, make up, different styles etc!

    Thanks!

  6. Integrate TEAMS with Skype status

    Would it be possible to integrate TEAMS with Skype status so when I'm in a meeting on TEAMS it shows as 'red' in Skype too.

  8. Appear offline

    In Skype I was used to (occasionally) use the 'Appear offline' functionality.

    Apart from 'Appear away' Skype has a last option that also leaves your status indicator empty/white.

    I find this especially helpful when you really need to focus and want to 'slightly divert' colleagues to send you an email who otherwise might have contacted you directly through Teams.

    Could you please add that functionality?

  9. Prevent automatic presence / status changes

    Please can there be a setting to turn off automatic presence / status changes, and also allow the presence setting to stay the same if Teams is closed or reopened or the computer is restarted. It is very frustrating and disruptive to work that the presence can change automatically by itself

  11. Skype for Business recorded who attended. Teams does not seem to do so reliably.

    Skype for Business recorded who attended. Teams does not seem to do so reliably. e.g. in a recent meeting, the chat shows some people who joined and left but not all. Note that in recurring meetings attendance should be recorded for all occurrences.

  12. Teams user availability status does not show up in outlook.

    Skype was linked with Outlook to show Skype user status of everyone in an email. With Skype not signed in,outlook does not shows user status from MS Teams. One has to go manually in MS Teams and search for the persons in email to know their availability status. This feature of skype should be helpful to have in teams also.
    I have attached 2 screenshots - 1. Showing User availability when Skype was signed in and 2. Showing User availability blanked out when Skype was logged out but Teams was signed in.

  14. Define & view Location (like we had in Skype)

    Location is missing in Teams which we had in Skype.

    When I move between my different locations like at office or factory or marketing office or home, it shows where am I (as I defined each). Also it remember home location.

  15. Showing Status with a text

    Status of a person should be shown with a text like In a meeting, busy like that.Right now we have to hover over the icon to know this because its difficulat to differentiate between busy and in a meeting status. Other status are easy to identify. Or we can give unique colors to all the status.

  17. Be able to see status without hoovering

    It is very difficult to see someone's real status.

    You need to hoover above the profile picture to see if the red dot is busy - in a call - in a meeting etc...

    Please make an option to be able to see the status like in skype. It will always show the real status - a red dot can mean multiple things. It's way more rude to write a message during 'in a call' than 'busy'.

    Also for the status away it is very annoying that you need to hoover to see for how long the person is away.

  19. Share desktop and camera at the same time

    So that the meeting room can present the desktop screen sharing as well as the video feed of the people in the room. This is probably similar to: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38860147-allow-pop-out-of-any-window-shared-from-anyone-ca
