  1. 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...

  2. Change the name of MS Teams to almost anything else

    I don't know if you guys were on drugs when you named this app but i can't describe the frustration when i'm having a discussion with colleagues about their teams but not their MS teams and then creating other teams but is this real life or their actual physical team etc. this is daily. Just idiotic. just causes unnecessary confusion

  3. Using the Teams phone app and the Windows installed app

    I would like to leave Teams running on my work PC all the time. I am fine with the way it handles status automatically: when I'm typing/mousing, it says I'm available. And when I lock my computer, it switches to Away.

    That's all good.

    But I would also like to have the Teams app on my phone. I'd like having/using that app to never make me available. In other words, if I decide to open it on my phone at 11 PM to check messages, I'd like to continue appearing Away. But when I come back to my work laptop…

  5. All presence options available when hover over app icon.

    Currently when you hover over the Teams app icon in Task Bar you can only see a subset of presence choices. You should be able to see all choices including one to Reset status back to whatever your automatic outlook integration says.

  6. Fix the status indicator

    The status indicator doesn't work well, please fix this. My status is regularly set to 'away' when in reality I have Teams open on my work PC Win 10 Pro, my iPad iOS 13.4, my home PC Win 10 Home, and my iPhone iOS 13.4 - our entire company has noticed this. We always seem to be left in 'Busy' status hours after a meeting has ended.

  9. Allow us to set our status to stay the same for an allotted time, instead of automatically synching to our calendars

    Many times when I am working but nothing is scheduled on my calendar it will automatically set my teams status to "out of office" or "offline" which makes me looks like I am not working, even though it is that I don't have appointments on my MS calendar. This is a bad look for Corporate.

  10. In A Call presence whenever audio is in use

    When joining a meeting or group call with audio on Mute, presence will only indicate In A Meeting. Even after Unmute, the presence remains In A Meeting versus In A Call.
    Indicating In A Call is preferred whenever audio is active (regardless of mute condition) during a meeting or group call.

  11. Request to implement presence privacy mode

    I would request to implement presence privacy mode in Microsoft Teams same as Skype for Business.
    Because I would like to prevent junior employees from seeing executive/senior members’ presence information when they search staff information.

  12. Better marketing and name recognition

    Our university is using Teams more and more, but it still remains awkward to invite or request communication via the app. "Chat" is too generic, as are "Calls." For example, if I am requesting a meeting with someone, I can offer Zoom (which is recognizable and obvious as to what I'm asking) or <awkwardly fumbles for easy description> 'Microsoft Teams video call.' It's way too much and doesn't flow. I request you rename the features to something more catchy and exclusive, or start advertising a way to phrase it that will become common knowledge (maybe TeamsChat or something better). Also,…

  13. keep status

    allow MS Teams to keep last recorded status.
    e.g. my status keeps reverting back to Available after put my laptop to sleep. would be good for Teams to recognize that i had manually set status to Busy and keep it that way even after i lock, sleep or hibernate my laptop.

  14. Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter)

    Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter) ;
    At present I have to individually add each and every email Id separately; that's very very time consuming;
    I am surprise Microsoft failed to think about this in the first place.

  15. Presence based routing not available

    Hi All,

    I have had this discussion with Microsoft Support and they have confirmed that this is currently not available. At the moment we have a call queue that is set to Attendant Routing so it calls everyone in the group when a call comes in to the office. Currently this means whenever the phone rings, each persons Desktop Phone (Polycom VX410/411), Desktop PC and Mobile phone rings.

    We were recently swapped across to Teams in the backend and took the opportunity to move away from Slack and bring everything into the one tool. That part of it is great,…

  16. Ability to add multiple status messages from which to choose

    Normally I set myself on "busy" and add a status indicating that if someone needs urgent feedback, must mention or indicate "urgent". But when I'm really away, I'd like to choose another status message, for example. The way status stating is now, obliges me to keep a desktop sticky note with the statuses for me to change when needed :/

  19. Set status to "Busy" or "In a call" when the microphone or webcam is being used by another application

    Sometimes you have to join a customer or vendor meeting using another collaboration app, such as Zoom or Webex. It would be nice if Teams could recognize your microphone and/or webcam is in use by another program and automatically set your status to "In a call" or "Busy."

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

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