  1. Teams status 'duration' and 'set a status message'

    In Teams, combine the status 'duration' and 'set a status message' & associated 'set status message duration' into a single menu.

    Currently they're separate and clunky.

  2. Set status message at the same time you set away status

    As a remote worker, I would like to be able to set my status message (like At Lunch") at the same time that I set myself to "away", so that I can notify my team that I am taking lunch without so many mouse clicks!

  3. A CLAP OPTION WITH 3 levels of loudness to express satisfaction

    Whenever I deliver a speech or take a seminar or make a presentation, it is the clap sound at the end that gives me the complete satisfaction of what I did. The loudness of the clap expresses, the happiness of the people and it is what gives me confidence, motivation and encouragement to perform next time. It would be nice if, we have 3 levels of loudness -low,medium,high which would express the satisfaction of the audience and also act as a feedback for the performer. If you could implement this, we will move a step closer to real classroom environment…

  4. online status for specific group

    Would like to be able to set by Status:
    1) Globally - i.e.as it exists today from other users perspective
    2) Have a different status for another set of people (group).

    e.g. Appear to everyone as away/busy/do not disturb etc. However for my direct reports - show status as 'Available'

    This could potentially be extended even further - as a hierarchical list of statuses for further lists/groups of people - until the the person viewing gets to the 'default/global' rule.

  6. Add an additional Status Indicator to show if you are Working From Home (WFH) or Onsite

    Add an additional (optional) status indicator to let other colleagues know if you are currently onsite or if you are working from home.

  8. Show presence when adding people to an existing call

    When adding additional users to an existing call, it would be extremely useful to see their presence status. Right now I have to go to "Chat" and search for the person to see their status before calling them. It would be very helpful to be able to see someone is away or busy right from the add participants interface.

  9. specific status color for users when they are in calls

    add a specific status color for users when they are in calls or conferences to distinguish between "busy" and "in a call" easily without having to pass over the name of the user to find out his/her exact status.
    It was simple in skype for business to find that out and it avoided people not calling you when you were in the middle of another call or conference.

  11. Coloured ring to indicate presence

    Coloured ring around the profile picture to indicate the location of the user. e.g. blue for "in the office" green for "at home".
    Nowadays, many people work from hybrid locations. It's a piece of important information to know whether someone is in the office, without having to ping the other person about their whereabouts.

  13. Block all desktop notifications when on "Do not disturb" mode

    On Teams it is not the case and I think it should be, so we can use the DND mode to focus on deep work and avoid being disturbed by messages. There is also a functionality in Windows to filter notifications but it does not tell your colleagues that you're not seeing their messages, so I think it should be handled in the Teams status.

  14. Include a hyperlink in status message

    "Set status message" allows you to @ mention users. It would be nice to allow hyperlinks in your status message as well.

    It might be even better to enable markdown formatting in the status message. This will allow hyperlinks as well as other formatting.

  15. Extend time out

    extending time is a valuable feature. I sometimes work on 2 computers and they both need to know I am present.

  16. Update the Status Icon Pack to differentiate Busy, Meeting, In a Call

    It is difficult to identify when a person is going from Busy to Call or Meeting. Sometime we accept pings during Busy state. But I get pings from my colleague when I am in a call or meeting, thinking I am in a busy state.

  18. See the status of the contact in letter not just the colour

    With Skype, we see under the circle of the status, the status in letter, exemple, when the contact is in green, he is available, when he is in red, there are multiple status, in communication, in presentation, don't distrub, ….
    But in teams, we just see the circle with the colour, not the corresponding status and it's not relevant because people just look at the color, not the real status. Can you put the status in letter Under the color ?

  19. Status option

    There should be an option provided to select and set one particular status and it should remain same until changed manually (the way skype provides option to set availability).
    Also, timeline to set away status should be changeable.
    Sometimes app displays the duration for how long the person is away and sometime it just displays away status. This should be controllable.
