  1. 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) !

  3. 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

  6. チーム内のチャネル毎に別の権限がかけられない

    チーム内のチャネル毎に別の権限がかけられない
    チャネルを担当毎に分けても権限がかけられないため、通知など担当外にも送信されてしまうため、
    チャネル毎に照会権限者、投稿権限者の権限設定を細かくしたい。

  7. 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.

  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…

  10. Availability needs to be user-controllable, not only automatic.

    Currently (August 2019) Teams decides when you are away based on activity on the specific device.

    That is inadequate. Availability should show *real life* availability, not PC activity.

    Otherwise people might hesitate in contacting us, even though we can be working on another device or even performing another activity just a few inches away from the keyboard.

    In those scenarios we need to be able to place ourselves as Available as most of the time those activities can and should be interrupted to answer an important message.

  12. Teams should have a report to show the user activity such the periods he was active, inactive, away etc.

    With the above report companies will be able to track the users activity on his desktop, see the periods the employee is active / inactive on his desktop

  13. Teams presence syncing to OWA presence

    Would it be possible to improve the consistency with presence in TEAMS and OWA? We currently have intermittent issues with the presence indicator in Teams not being the same as OWA.

  14. 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.

  15. Include information for when client is available

    Skype included details of when the client was going to next be free or available. This was helpful so I wasn't bothering the person when they were in the middle of a meeting or away. I would think that the feature may become available with different calendar integration, but I wanted to mention the idea.

  16. Ability to add groups within groups under contacts.

    Many times we have different departments within our company that could be saved as a group under contacts. However my contacts in one group could have vastly different work. Person X in Group1 could be much better to ask about Product Z than person Y might be.

    If I could add a group within another group me and my colleagues could avoid fracturing our contact list so massively and make it way more effective. The main group could be named "Department 1" and the subgroup within the main group could be "Product Z"

    This is not possible today and it…

  19. How to get status of the person from external organisation?

    Hi!

    I would like to see the status of my colleagues from external organization like I had it in Skype for Business. In Teams the status of external persons is always "unknown" or offline

  20. Hide offline contacts

    I miss the functionality of Skype where you can hide all contacts that are not online. The skype groups are much cleaner and consists only of my online contacts. The rest are either away or offline. This function is a must in Teams or else the groups will be cluttered with all the different statuses mixed. You can't get a good overview.
