  1. 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.

  2. Better visibility for custom Status Message

    The new status message feature is great, but it lacks visibility to other users. It would be much more useful to make it visible in the chat area user list, rather than having to hover over a user to find it in the drop down. It would also be great to have it anywhere you can see user presence.

  3. 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

  4. status option

    There should be an option for the status as "offline" or "show offline" so that people don't keep bothering you when you're done for the day.

  5. Let us control how many minutes pass before our status is set to Away.

    Other software can do this. Let us control how many minutes pass before our status changes.

  6. In Call (Mobile) Presence When In Cellular Call

    I am not sure if this is possible, but it would be wonderful for presence within MS Teams to reflect availability or presence based on whether or not a user is active on their phone -- and in particular if the user is in a cellular call.

  8. Opt-out of "Notify when available"

    In the previous Skype for Business you had the option to "Tag for Status Updates" and Teams similarly implemented "Notify when available" in the spring of 2019. This has been a big ask for people, but at the same time, it's a feature which in my experience has been ripe for abuse at worst, and encouraging poor etiquette at best. If you've ever gotten 5 messages the moment you sat down and unlocked your PC in Skype for Business, you know what I'm talking about. This feature is also a privacy nightmare, and in environments where there are privacy concerns…

  9. Presence indicator shape and colors for daltonian people

    All icons in Presence indicator in TEAMS are round which make them difficult to read especially for daltonian people like me! When yellow green and red look close to the same is doesn't help. Bigger shape, and other form shape like triangle, losange, square and octagonal will be easier to see. Also the definition could be visible when passing on with the mouse.

  10. Allow users to change the defult time of 10 minutes to how ever long they would like before the status changes from available to away.

    The users should be able to override the 10 minutes setting that changes the user's status from available to away.

  11. Timer based status change or logout from app

    Is it possible to have a timer based automatic login and signout for the mobile app? The 'available' status is on all day and night 24x7

  12. Let tenant admins decide a policy and/or a preference for away status timeout

    Tenant admins should be able to enable or disable the away status for all or groups of users.
    They should also be able to set the default timer for the away status for each group and to decide whether is mandatory or editable by the end user.
    We are a multinational company and this is a big issue since in some countries (like Germany for example) worker's union may be upset of the automated status change.

  13. Add a Be Right Back / Break button especially for longer calls

    Since video and voice calls go on for hours, kindly add a Be Right Back button for participants to enable a quick break

  14. Teams (Web Version) says I'm away eventhough I have the tab open on my 2nd monitor and am working on Excel on my 1st monitor.

    When using the web version of teams (rather than the desktop app) the presence status shows away after 5 minutes even though the window is up, but my active window is on the other monitor and I'll be working in Excel (or another app).

  15. My status constantly reverts to yellow even when I am active. I would like to keep it green so my peers know that I am available.

  16. Remove the status: Do not Disturb. Replace it with Occupied or Single threading. I am not disturbed when contacted

    The term Disturbed means: 1. having had its normal pattern or function disrupted or 2. suffering or resulting from emotional and mental problems or 3. both combined. A professional, under normal circumstances, should never reach this level. Perhaps in England, 1700 or 1800 Disturbed had a more docile meaning, the equivalent to distracted today. 2020, Disturbed has acquired a negative connotation

  17. Option to change Teams status to Off Work

    Add the "Off Work" status like we had on Skype. It is really helpful, especially in the work from home environment to be able to add the clear "off work" distinction in your status.

  18. I would appreciate if do not disturb status is really blocking from being contacted, like skype does

    I am confused about the do not disturb function in Teams. It should prevent anybody to contact me. Basically the same functionality as in Skype for business. Anybody know if there are plans to so so?

  19. 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.

  20. Laat de gebruiker zelf kiezen na hoeveel tijd hij/zij als afwezig weergegeven wordt.

    Ik word vrij snel als afwezig weergegeven wanneer ik even niet aan de computer actief ben. Ik ben op dat moment wel nog beschikbaar, maar werk bijvoorbeeld aan documenten, maak tussendoor een praatje met een collega,... Ik zou graag zelf kiezen om langer beschikbaar te staan zodat mijn collega’s zien dat ze mij wel kunnen opbellen...
